From Knauf AMF Ceilings make the Grade
Acoustic ceiling solutions from Knauf AMF Ceilings have been chosen for eight schools as part of the London Borough of Newham primary school expansion programme. Almost £17 million is being invested in improving facilities and providing extra school places in the borough. One of the first schools to undergo successful expansion work is Roman Road Primary in East Ham. Approximately 1,500m² of Thermatex Alpha, Silence and Antaris ceilings were installed throughout its new buildings.
Specialist ceiling contactor AJ Hills specified Knauf AMF Ceilings for the schools and explains why: “We’ve worked with Knauf AMF Ceilings on previous education projects and we have a good relationship with them. Their technical support throughout this build was invaluable. Their products meet the required acoustic and fire performance specifications for the schools and are cost effective.”
Creating a healthy learning environment where children and teachers can hear each other clearly was an essential requirement for the school’s teaching areas. Thermatex Silence ceilings are installed in the lower floor classrooms to provide the necessary impact sound insulation to ensure lessons are not disturbed by sounds generated from the rooms above. Silence is a fleece coated ceiling made from two mineral boards bonded together. This construction provides the highest Class A sound absorption and outstanding sound attenuation.
