The new Arnold Clark car dealership in Stafford features an interesting finish to the ceiling, thanks to the specification of a Hunter Douglas architectural products division Luxalon ceiling system.
The showroom features a gull wing design to the roof structure and client Architects Opfer Logan chose specialist contractor Brian Laurence Ceilings to match a ceiling system for the roof void. The project encompassed a roof space of some 4,300m2 and with the help of Hunter Douglas Architectural Projects technical division the contractor installed a series of V200 aluminium blades across the expanse of the roof plenum. Each 6m length floating blade was then fitted to a suspended curved T grid using pivot clips that enabled the angle of the blades to be varied according to the requirement of the designer.
The Luxalon V200 screen ceiling system is lightweight and extremely flexible and is available in a wide range of finishes and colourways. These vertically hung blades can create a unique variety of visual patterns and are ideal for defining walkways, corners, meeting areas, in expansive environments such as airports, exhibition halls and large showrooms.
