Armstrong Ceilings shows head for heights with United Airlines

Armstrong Ceilings has been specified for the complex ceiling design for the 2,000m2 United Global First Lounge - the new Queen's Terminal (Terminal 2) at Heathrow airport. When global architects 3DReid were looking for a UK ceiling tile manufacturer, which was "critical" for the costing and timescale of their project, there was really only one option - Armstrong Ceilings.

Some 800m2 of Armstrong's Axiom Knife Edge 9290mm x 1200mm canopies with a mixture of perforated metal MicroLook 8 tiles in a pearl beige finish with fleece and the bespoke RH-225 hook-on ceiling system were used for the scheme. As well as this, the Microperforated 600mm x 600mm S-Clip F swing-down tiles with fleece installed on the System 3000 concealed grid in signal white were used to compliment the design.

Felicity Hurling from project architects 3DReid, said "The ceiling layout is particularly complex, utilizing a number of ceiling finish levels and interfacing with joinery products. Additionally there are a number of access requirements from the ceiling due to the quantity of services and the final outcome achieved full void access without reducing the integrity of the aesthetic". The added benefit of Armstrong being able to deliver samples and advise their clients directly had provided reassurance and a cohesive working environment.
