SAS International

Aedas Architects specified over 1,000 sqm of SAS International’s System 200 metal ceiling, featuring a bespoke perforation pattern for the recent Manchester Airport Terminal 1 retail refurbishment.

SAS International worked closely with Aedas Architects on the project. A strict timeline had to be adhered to as the busy Manchester terminal was fully occupied and operational throughout the construction period, so the work had to be done in phases, and in short night-time slots.

Together with Milligan Retail, Aedas designed a metal ceiling tile with a perforated lace work pattern. The design and specification of the tile was crucial to the overall effect. Each 900mm square tile has an identical pattern on it which was designed so that when laid next to each other they form a free flowing pattern that weaves across the ceiling. This pattern is further enhanced by being backlit with blue lighting.

SAS International was able to assist with the unique specification, calculating the weight allowance and parameters required for the product.

SAS System 200 is a hook-on metal ceiling tile system that provides a functional and durable solution for airports. The practical nature of its structure allows ease of construction and maintenance.
