Sept. 2013 supplement

In this dedicated supplement, FC&A rounds up the latest solutions available on the market ranging from exterior surfacing solutions to acoustic ceiling panels. Unlike interior floorcoverings, outdoor surfaces are exposed to the elements all year round, meaning the product must be able to withstand a variety of conditions.

In public areas especially, slip resistance and maintenance are top priorities. Dura Composites, for example, demonstrates how it is seeing a growing demand for composite decking thanks to its exceptional performance, longevity and ability to retain colour.

Meanwhile, ceilings can offer high sound absorption and add individuality, enhancing the quality of a room’s finish. An example of the end result can be seen on pg 14 where Armstrong Ceilings was specified for the refurbishment of a private members lounge at Liverpool Football Club.
