Workpod technical information
Cocoon Workpods comprise curved and straight aluminium frame sections 50 x 46mm with a patented jointing system. The frame is wrapped with a digitally-printed tensioned polyester fabric panel to each side, retained by a silicone bead sewn to the fabric and pushed home into a slot in the frame.
The silver anodized aluminium frames are lightweight, fast to assemble, durable (our anodizing is 15-17microns which is exterior grade), ecofriendly and infinitely reusable. The only tools required are Allen keys.
Fabric panels can be unprinted (white), printed in a solid RAL or Pantone colour, or incorporating photography, illustrations, text or combinations. We print at 1440dpi thus achieving very high resolution with sharp lines and accurate colour rendition.
Panels are cut to fit the frames within a tolerance of 5% and a silicone bead is sewn around all 4 edges; the fabric panels are then very simply installed by pushing the silicone bead home into a slot in the frame.
No tools are required for this process and the installation technique is quickly acquired.
The fabric is ultra-tough and unaffected by impact and humidity; it will not crack, chip, dent or tear. Fabric panels can be replaced in minutes for cleaning or replacement. The inks used in the printing process are water-based with no VOCs and the fabric itself is 100% recyclable.
As an extra cost option, acoustic performance can be upgraded by bonding a composite interior panel of corrugated polypropylene and acoustic foam to the inside of the frame. Please note that the acoustic upgrade does limit scope for dismantling and reconfiguring. External visual appearance is unchanged.
Cocoon Workpods can be specified with solid dry wipe infills utilising either a high gloss white GRP or Wall Talker vinyl. Cocoon straight panels can also be specified with back-painted glass which can be to any RAL colour.
Glazed panels can be incorporated in Cocoon straight panels but not Cocoon pods.
A complete range of accessories including support feet, castors, desk-up fixings and wall/panel connectors can be supplied from our standard range. Wire management fittings for power and data distribution are available as specials, including concealed support for plasma screens.
