Good room acoustics guarantee better work productivity, quicker recovery time, more effective learning outcomes and more satisfied customers. To ensure acoustic comfort, architects and designers would be well advised to direct their attention upwards before anything else – such thinking has resulted in our whitepaper titled 'The Ceiling as an Acoustic Tool'. In this paper, we delve deeper into the added value provided by good acoustics in various business segments and we present the ceiling as the leading tool for achieving acoustic comfort.
For the Katreinetoren renovation project in Utrecht, NL Architects selected a HunterDouglas® slat ceiling due to its acoustic and aesthetic properties. The ceiling had to have a calm and comfortable, yet simple appearance – this requirement was certainly fulfilled by the current design. The slat ceiling looks sleek and attractive, with the technical components and lighting system having been concealed in the ceiling. In combination with the air conditioning system, the ceiling makes certain that thermal comfort is ensured as well.
Linear panels have the right look for every style: sleek, clean lines or a combination of various dimensions. Whatever you require for your project, our linear ceiling components give you all the freedom you need to let your imagination run wild.
