Advanced Equipment Corporation was established at Bellevue, Washington in 1957 as a Designer, Manufacturer, and Installer of Operable Walls. The company was incorporated in the State of Washington in 1958 and moved to California shortly thereafter. AEC was established to manufacture operable walls and has been a designer and fabricator of that product since its founding.

Today, AEC continues in the quest for greater efficiency and better value for our customers. Our premier ALPHA® operable walls offer superior, field tested sound stopping ability, resistance to earthquakes, are incombustible, and have demonstrable ease of operation and durability. ALPHA® panels are furnished with 10 and 20-year warranties. AEC also offers several tracks with 5 and 10-year warranties that do not require a service contract and do not exclude normal wear.

AEC makes extensive use of electronic technology to assist our customers with preliminary design assistance, as well as improve product design and manufacturing. DWspec will produce error free specifications and drawings in DXF format. Drawings are dynamically created based upon customer input without the need for downloads. The customer needs only a browser to properly configure and specify an AEC operable wall.

Acoustic Performance

ADVANCED EQUIPMENT CORPORATION offers operable walls in a wide range of panel constructions. Each type of panel has been sound tested for STC value by a licensed acoustical engineer in an independent acoustical laboratory. AEC has established minimum NIC values which one can expect to achieve for each type of panel should the operable walls be field sound tested and providing that the surrounding building construction is compatible with the specified rating.

Field Sound Testing - NIC Values by Panel Type

NIC values are based on ASTM E336-97.
