Ceiling systems from Armstrong were specified for a new Pre-Operative Assessment Department and Surgical Admissions Suite at Bristol Royal Infirmary for their sustainability credentials. Armstrong’s CoolZone passive energy-saving tiles were used alongside the manufacturer’s Ultima+ range, which is the world’s first complete ceiling range to win Cradle to Cradle certification, with a Tegular edge detail on a 24mm suspension grid throughout the £2million replacement Surgical Admissions Suite (SAS) and Pre-Operative Assessment Department (POD).
Some 300m2 of the metal CoolZone tiles incorporating Phase Change Material (PCM) which absorbs heat during the day and releases it at night to reduce a building’s reliance on air conditioning, feature alongside 300m2 of Ultima+ mineral tiles.
Rich Shore, from specialist sub-contractors Pegasus, said "The CoolZone tiles were easy to use and install and they give a great effect due to their metal finish. They complemented the Ultima+ tiles very nicely. "The whole project went smoothly, with all parties in the supply chain cooperating well and the technical support from Armstrong was exceptional.”
