Knauf AMF creates exceptional school interiors with Class A acoustics  

Education Wed, Feb 7, 2018 8:59 AM

Alyth Primary in Perthshire has undergone an £8.9 million transformation to unite the nursery, primary and community areas and create a protected external learning space.

The principle of ‘shared learning’ is at the heart of the project and this is realised using open-plan classrooms, break-out areas and a terrace which extends from the first-floor library to overlook the central courtyard.

To ensure this ambitious layout works acoustically, Heradesign and Thermatex ceilings from Knauf AMF are installed throughout to achieve the standards required by BB93 Acoustic Design of Schools.

The natural materials used in the interior design combine with high levels of light to create a healthy atmosphere which helps motivate the pupils and aid concentration.

Heradesign plays a key role in creating this positive ambience and are installed in the classrooms, gym hall and corridors.

Heradesign is a range of high-performance acoustic ceilings and wall

absorbers manufactured from sustainable wood-wool from PEFC and FSC certified sources. The visible wood fibres give Heradesign its distinctive, woven surface which can be produced in any colour.
