Showcasing two of the world’s most prestigious and admired car brands demands enormous attention to detail. Over a many number of years, Saint-Gobain Ecophon has created acoustic suspended ceilings within countless Jaguar Land Rover dealerships throughout the UK.
The architect, SDA Design in Leeds, specifies Ecophon’s Focus Ds or Dg ceiling system for both its aesthetic and acoustic performance.
The concealed grid systems help to achieve the clean, crisp style of the interior’s look and feel, reflecting both the sleek lines of the vehicles and the sophistication of the brand.
The visible surface of the ceiling tiles has an Akutex™ FT coating which generates minimal light reflectance – another important consideration when creating the ideal lighting scheme that will show the vehicles to perfection, without the spotlights themselves being reflected in the gleaming paintwork.
Shiny cars, tiled floors and walls of glass combine to create a potentially difficult acoustic environment with high levels of reverberation, auditory strength and sound propagation, which makes the acoustic properties of the Focus Ds ceiling system so important.
