Walls projects require a diversity of skills, from the designer who draws them, to the engineer who refines them, to the architect who specs them, to the contractor who installs them. The stages of the process are fluid and each step has its own checklist. That's why we believe our work is best when we're a part of the team.

    Customization is not a path outside our process – it is our process. Approximately 50 percent of our business is custom. Frequently, customized products migrate into our standard offering. This innovative and practical approach ensures that our product designs address the needs and wants of staff in today's workplace. We integrate design with engineering.

    Our Drive

    The inherent complexity of wall systems is what drives us to always find, and build, the right fit

    We're Proactive

    We know that every project is different, which is why we're proactive in finding the right solution

    We Collaborate

    We collaborate with our clients, as well as our in-house engineering and design experts to tackle specialized challenges from several perspectives

    Group Learning

    Being able to draw from the expertise of our sales staff across the continent means that every project benefits from our collective learning.

     

     

    The Teknion Team

    Rather than a broad, but inexperienced group, we maintain a nimble, dedicated team of experts that work together to serve the entire North American region.

    Our sales team works closely with our engineers and A&D group to always be on-top of new developments. Our tight sales team means that each new project benefits from the collective learning of the team.

    Our team members are ingrained in their markets, with deep knowledge of the unique policy limitations and office trends.

    Our Extended Network

    We partner with dealers across the continent to exclusively sell Teknion Wall Systems. We consider our dealer network an extension of our sales team, who operate independently, but supported businesses to match the needs of their local market.

    We maintain close relationships with top designers and architects. Our products represent the go-to wall systems for many, and repeat collaboration is frequent.

    For their modest facade, walls hold a lot of hidden innovation. Not just in their product design, but in how they're installed, and in their ability to transform a space. We believe in being at the leading edge of meaningful change, not only because it feeds our passion for design but because it leads to improvements that benefit everyone.

    Decades of R&D

    We're backed by decades of R&D, and a big part of that is collaborating with our partners

    Always Learning

    We see each project as an opportunity to learn and improve. Many product innovations are the result of real-world project challenges

    Proven Results

    This approach is how we’ve designed some of the best looking, acoustically-robust wall system out there

    Our Dedication

    We know the word ‘innovation’ has been exhausted by others, but it still holds meaning for us—that’s because we’re genuinely committed to building the future of our industry

     

    "I don't see too many other competitors focused on reinventing the wheel and trying to provide a better solution to walls as much as Teknion is."

    Walls are not made to stand out. But a wall's clean exterior hides the careful design decisions that are integral to its function. In many ways it's defined by the details. That's why we focus our attention on the careful moments that construct the final product.

    Glass Standard

    We produce our own glass and extensively test its acoustic performance, leading to some of the highest STC ratings on the market

    Owned Manufacturing

    We own our manufacturing to make sure construction is precise and reliable

    Integrated Teams

    We integrate our in-house design and engineering teams to materialize those clean lines and slim contours

    We rigorously test our walls for their acoustic capabilities, ensuring a premium product

    • Walls and glass are tested using a state-of-the-art acoustic facility, typically, used to asses material STC properties
    • Our product address both Sound Transmission and Noise Reduction, providing acoustic superiority to dry wall
    • Altos STC rating is 48 with insulation, able to mute loud speech
    • Our unique recycled cotton insulation is a standard offering

     

     

     

    At the forefront of acoustic performance, we've designed two new fascias that seamlessly integrate with our walls

    • Fabric fascia & metal microperf
    • New high performance acoustic and tack-able fascia is designed to absorb sound, avoiding harsh echoing environments
    • Available with select Architectural and Panel fabrics with a consistent fabric wrapped corner detail
    • Painted metal surface available in Teknion's standard painted offering
    • Large format: Up to 120" wide in Landscape orientation supports offset back-to-back planning
     

    Teknion owns 6 manufacturing facilities and 1 glass fabrication facility in North America

    • We ensure the quality and consistency from start to finish. Our manufacturing staff are a part of our team as everyone else.
    • We test and engineer new concepts using our existing production capabilities, considering feasibility and efficiency of build
    • Our plants are ISO 14001 and 9001 certified, the air quality is certified Greenguard for Children and Schools
    • Our materials and packaging use up to 18% recycled content and our packaging is reusable and recyclable
    • Our heavily-controlled glass production means that every panel meets our high acoustic standards
