Hunter Douglas, a global manufacturer of architectural products, has used its expertise in an ongoing £7 million refurbishment of Enfield Civic Centre. The company was commissioned by architectural consultancy Pellings LLP to create bespoke solid timber grill ceilings, totalling 480m2, in breakout areas over eight floors as part of a four-year programme to update the civic centre.
Using CAD drawings, it created an Ayous grill ceiling in 7-40-15-55 module. The timber was impregnated with Hunter Douglas’ standard fire treatment, which meets the European Fireclass B-s2-d0, and was complemented with an acoustic backing sprayed black to maintain a warm look.
“The use of Ayous offers designers the ideal solution because it is hard wearing and has a lovely grain to it, making it easy to stain in whichever finish the client requires,” said Kevin Taylor, Hunter Douglas Technical Sales Manager.
"The system design allows for easy access to services, such as the air conditioning units, and also looks aesthetically pleasing.”
