Dali controlled System 600 Acoustic Lighting Rafts were installed at Carlisle’s divisional police headquarters. Working with Taylor Young Architects and DSSR, Building Services Consulting Engineers, SAS International supplied the flat design rafts to provide acoustic absorption to this BREEAM excellent building.

SAS International’s System 600 Acoustic Lighting Rafts were installed on the ground, first and second floors of Carlisle’s divisional police headquarters. Working with Taylor Young Architects and DSSR, Building Services Consulting Engineers, SAS International supplied the flat design rafts to provide acoustic absorption in the building, as well as lighting provision.

The building achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating helped by the thermal mass of exposed concrete coffer soffits. The suspended rafts below the coffers are fitted with both up and down lighting and acoustic absorption pads to provide a high quality working environment.

The lighting design utilised High Frequency T5 Lamp Technology together with Dali Lighting Controls with the lighting rafts incorporating occupancy and daylight sensors.

Featuring recessed luminaires, the rafts are centred and suspended within barrel coffers, leaving large areas of the concrete soffit exposed. This enables free air movement to the structural slab for natural thermal mass cooling.
