Helping with sound and sight in a new teaching block

A mixture of metal and mineral fibre systems from Armstrong were specified for a new teaching block.

Some 2,000m² of D-H 700 microperforated metal Hook-On canopies, Axiom Knife Edge canopies with Ultima+ tiles and MicroLook 8 wood-effect metal tiles were specified by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council for the £12.5 million new secondary teaching block at Ystalyfera Welsh Medium Comprehensive School in South Wales. The two to three-storey steel-frame building replaces a 1970s CLASP-type teaching block and was designed to BREEAM “Excellent” and BIM Level 2 standards.
