Hunter Douglas Topline ceiling chosen for Southbank Place development

Latest News Fri, Apr 24, 2020 12:57 PM

A Hunter Douglas Architectural ceiling system that combines an attractive finish with superior acoustic comfort has been installed at a landmark London office and residential development.

Southbank Place, a joint project between Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group, is one of the capital’s most high profile developments and when it is completed will comprise more than 800 new homes, 48,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants and bars, and 530,000 sq ft of office space.

The leading global architectural products company has supplied 620m2 of Topline, a wood panel system, for the main foyer of Two Southbank, a 407,008 sq ft, 15-storey office building, which has been designed by global architectural practice Kohn Pedersen Fox.

The Hunter Douglas Architectural TLS 13/3 ceiling system comprises a core of MDF engineered solid wood (ESW) with a decorative finish of high quality real European oak veneer. A small oval opening is achieved through a staggered single groove pattern while the other side has a perforation design that enables sound energy to pass through, helping to achieve superior acoustic absorption.

For this project, Hunter Douglas Architectural supplied 128mm x 2730mm panels with 50mm Rockwool and 0.2mm Soundtex acoustic insulation, which results in 0.75 NRC. They were installed quickly and easily by Ruddy Joinery, thanks to the use of special clips that are designed to work with either a T-24 grid or to allow direct installation on to a framework.

Juliette Halliday, national sales manager at Hunter Douglas Architectural, said: “Topline is a premium quality ceiling system that was ideal for this prestigious office development because it provided the linear appearance that the architect was seeking. Its superior acoustic absorption is a big plus for specifiers and architects.

“Working with KPF, a globally recognised architect practice, illustrates the calibre of projects that Hunter Douglas, which has completed major complex schemes across the work, is capable of working on and adding value to."
