Close to a thousand square metres of Tektalan boards, manufactured by Heraklith and supplied by Marmox UK, have been consumed in the conversion of former American Express premises into a major new media centre for the University of Brighton. The panels were specified to improve the thermal and acoustic performance, as well as the appearance of several soffit areas within the buildings. These included the underside of two structural concrete floors and an entrance canopy. Within these spaces they help cut reverberation and present a smart, textured surface. Tektalan represents a hybrid combination of Marmox Heraklith Woodwool boards with rock mineral wool, which enhances the product’s already impressive performance characteristics. The woodwool element provides the strength and rigidity together with the unique appearance and sound absorption.
