Ecophon’s Architectural S-Line Tile

  • Comment

Ashton Sixth Form College in Ashton-Under-Lyne is always striving to update its facilities. The building, designed by A-Cube Architects, includes a new learning centre and library.

A library is a silent or quiet area for study where students can attain their maximum concentration levels. Good acoustics in a library therefore means an environment which is highly sound absorbent.

Faheem Aftab (Architect) wanted to increase the architectural interest of the space by introducing some three-dimensional features to the ceiling, it was decided that the Focus S-line E tile offered an elegant way to add shape.

The S-line tile was used in conjunction with the matching flat Focus E tile, both tiles being manufactured from high density glass wool with a surface coating of Akutex T to provide excellent acoustic capabilities. The S-line tile, as the name suggests, is

S-shaped and results in a change of ceiling height.  Parallel lines of S-line tile were used across the width of the library with sections of the flat E tile in between creating an attractive wave-like effect. The library is now light and airy, and the ceiling has a stylish curvy wave-like effect, which is innovative and attractive.
