Armstrong Ceiling Solutions have supplied their Perla Tegular mineral tiles for Loudons restaurant in Edinburgh.
The ceilings are 100m2 of Perla Tegular mineral tiles which are set within Axiom Classic canopies, to visually separate the public dining area from the open kitchen area.
Perla tiles perform to Sound Absorption Class A and Clean Room classification of ISO 5 and are up to 85% light reflectant and 95% humidity resistant.
Peter, who acted as project manager and designer, said: “We knew that whenever you have a space with hard surfaces you need something to absorb sound so when we did the first Loudons we had to look at the best way of handling the acoustics within the constraints but with the appearance we wanted.”
“We used Armstrong ceilings there so when it came to the New Waverley venue I spoke to the company again and got some advice and the new ceilings have been a great success, both from a sound absorption and appearance point of view. We are very happy with it all, from the look of it and the way it works.”
He added: “We think noise levels need to be pitched to give ambience with comfortable bustle but not so noisy that you can’t have easy conversation.”
Co-founder and director Chris Loudon, said: “This expansion is an exciting chapter for our business. New Waverley is the next significant milestone in our mission to serve up brilliant food for all, without exception.”
The Armstrong ceilings were installed over a month by Edinburgh-based specialist sub-contractor AG McDougall and Partner.
