Hunter Douglas breathes new life into Leicester market area

Hunter Douglas breathes new life into Leicester market area

A ceiling created and installed by world-leading architectural products manufacturer Hunter Douglas has helped to transform the historic market area in Leicester. Commissioned by architects Greig and Stephenson, Hunter Douglas supplied and installed a 470m2 solid wood linear open ceiling in fire-treated FSC Siberian larch for the technically complex £7 million glass and timber pavilion.

The system was installed between specially engineered glulam beams and to achieve the desired reverberation time of 2-2.5 seconds, which provides the "buzz" of a market environment, the Hunter Douglas solid wood system was specified with 92mm wide Siberian Larch slats with 19mm gaps which were closed off with an acoustic felt strip.
