Acoustic wall panels make a splash at school pool

Oulder Hill Community School and Language College have benefited from major refurbishment works and the addition of a new building for Special Educational Needs.  

The improvements were designed by Aedas, currently the fourth largest architectural practice in the world, who specified Ecophon wall panels to provide acoustic amelioration in the swimming pool.

Ecophon’s Texona wall panels were chosen because they matched the performance criteria for acoustics and moisture resistance.

Texona wall panels are manufactured from high-density glass wool with a surface layer of glass-fibre fabric called Texona, which is available in a wide range of colours for design flexibility, including the striking turquoise used at Oulder Hill.  The panels were installed by trained Ecophon contractor Sound Interiors on a concealed grid.  As the panel edges are bevelled, a narrow groove is just visible where they meet.  At the outer edge of the field of panels a profile is used to secure the installation, fixing them in place like a picture frame. These profiles, manufactured by Ecophon as part of their modular fitting system, mean contractors don’t need to be concerned about fixing compatibility, but can progress quickly and easily with installation. At Oulder Hill this aluminium trim was colour-coated white.
