Client: Excel Laminating
Contractor: K D Systems
Type of works: supply of ceiling and wall panels from Rey Solutions.
Excel Laminating, exclusive distributors of Polyreys Rey Solutions partitions and ceilings, decided to put the product through its paces by converting their 160 sqm open plan office. This brand new product incorporates all the advantages of a high-quality plasterboard core and Polyreys melamine-surface technology to offer an economical, environmentally friendly, acoustic, fire retardant and recyclable decorative panel that in comparative testing offers superior surface resistance over PVC & vinyl. The panels conform to Euroclass B-s1,dO and are tested to BS476 Class 0. This innovation also has a low calorific value which guarantees they meet or exceed current fire legislations and makes them suitable for all interior applications, including public environments.
Demonstrating the products ease of installation and flexibility, the open plan office was converted by Leeds-based contractors K D Systems within just 48 hours into a boardroom for six people, a private office for the MD, a large sales/administration office as well as a small reception area. The wall panels measuring 3,000 x 1,200 x 12.5mm come in a choice of 12 designs from which Excel chose C047 Wenge, 156 Cream, B057 Dark Grey, D024 Damask Porcelaine and E009 Erable Blanc, which complemented each other to form an attractive modern interior.
600 x 600mm White ceiling panels topped off the look chosen from the 6-strong palette of plains, designs and woodgrains that are available in perforated or non-perforated format, for added acoustic performance.
Nick Hopper, Rey Solutions Manager at Excel, said: Being compatible with any modular system on the market and offering complimentarity with other Polyrey product ranges, Rey Solutions is incredibly flexible and easy to install providing a durable and beautifully decorative finish. Exceptional acoustics and fire retardancy complete this single panel specification. We are all delighted with the end result and the difference this installation has made to our working environment.
Rey Solutions has been tested and approved for recycling as an alternative to landfill disposal via the Lafarge Wasteline programme. This programme allows the gypsum core to be extracted and recycled back into the manufacture of plasterboard, with the paper and melamine face re-used elsewhere.
