Autonomous Multipurpose Module characterized by high acoustical performance, suited for creating a flexible and personalizable service environment that can be adapted to specific needs.

The DCA partition system consists of a self-supporting structure in painted aluminum profiles, paneling in transparent extra-clear double-glazed structural safety glass with insulating cavity, swing doors with the same characteristics, and a sound-insulated roof built with boxed slats in natural-finish micro- perforated anodized aluminum, equipped with forced ventilation and incorporated LED lighting. Free of vertical supporting elements, the structure is completed at the top by a series of truss beams, in painted steel, which support the roof panels. The profiles along the bottom are concealed within the raised flooring, while on the inside of the space they are hidden along the top within the ceiling. In this way, the glazed partition is perceived with a sensation of extreme lightness.
