Last year this international hub served more than 46 million passengers and reported £37.5m income from catering. These lucrative possibilities mean that the competition between various catering points is fierce, so they need to constantly up their game by updating their services and interiors.

This led a well-established operator of VIP and Club Lounges to provide similar services to economy passengers in a new lounge emitting the laid-back ambience of a New York Loft, blending a warm, welcoming and informal look with cleverly defined functional zoning.

Split to accommodate a TV, snug and game areas, the central open space assists unobstructed access to the outside terrace overlooking the runways. With so many different functions, it was imperative to provide acoustic absorption for aural comfort.

Supaslat Panels with Acoustic backing provided a perfect solution. Solid Ash slats create a warm, elegant look that works superbly with the lighting in the overall design.

Summary

Product Used: Solid Ash with Tinted Class O Lacquer Finish; Supaslat 3 with Black Acoustic Backing to Rear; Slat Size: Nominal 42mm(w) x 32mm(t) @ 100mm centres; Approx panel size generally: 2.13 m x 0.6m wide

HOW DID OUR SUPASLAT PANELS HELP THIS PROJECT?

  • Designed to interface easily with other elements, the panels were precisely assembled in modules that integrate into the ceiling grid.
  • Panels incorporated acoustic fabric plus cut-outs to integrate lighting and services - no cutting or assembling on site!
  • Our unique Lift and Shift system minimises installation time, also ensuring easy access to the ceiling void for future maintenance work.

The design team commented appreciatively:

“The ceiling looks great and they (the client) are finding the demount ability of it very useful.”
