Providing the right conditions in schools is critical in providing the best education for children, in particular, the right acoustic and environmental conditions.
This is why over recent years some of the main areas of focus in school design have been on improving the acoustic and listening conditions within schools and ensuring healthy environments through sustainable design.
With the current review of Building Bulletin 93, acoustics within schools is set to remain a key element in the design of schools and in the consideration of building materials and products. Sustainability is of course something that we cannot afford to ignore, however, it is critical to ensure that acoustics, sustainability and all other aspects of school design work together rather than setting conflicting agendas.
The new Armstrong Ceiling Solutions for Education brochure outlines many of the key acoustic and environmental considerations and the role that suspended ceilings can have in achieving the correct performance in both of these important areas.
It includes not only Armstrongs A.B.L.E. (A Better Learning Environment) philosophy for providing the optimum conditions for learning, but also acoustic solutions for designs utilising the thermal mass of concrete for passive cooling, a product selector and project testimonials installed by Omega contractors.
The Education brochure also contains a product selector guide, helping you to choose the correct Armstrong product to meet the acoustic challenges of your space.
However, Armstrong products are not just functional, and their commitment to acoustics does not compromise their commitment to design and aesthetics They offer a full design portfolio of products, in a number of materials and styles, from mineral to metal and canopies.
