New hospital uses Hunter Douglas linear wood ceiling in atrium

Health Tue, Nov 13, 2018 2:23 PM

Hunter Douglas Architectural’s linear wood ceiling has been installed at a new £40 million hospital in London.

Architect BDP specified the Siberian larch for the atrium at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in Stanmore, and the leading global architectural products company supplied 278m2 in random-length panels from 900mm to 2500mm, in 111mm module width.

The Class O treated larch had UV-resistant varnish and it was fitted with an acoustic fleece to the open joint. MPG Contracts installed the panels, which are designed with a pre-fixed clip system to ensure faster installation, onto a Hunter Douglas Architectural metal suspension rail.

The clips for the linear system allows for the panels to be provided as 50% demountable.

Juliette Halliday, national sales manager at Hunter Douglas Architectural, said its solid wood linear ceiling and wall systems are developed to maximise efficiency and is a popular choice for specifiers and architects because of the unique manufacture and fitting system.

“The addition of the solid wood ceiling is a lovely contrast to glass, the clean white stairwells and grey metal panels, because it creates a sense of warmth as well as providing acoustic comfort. It’s a very impressive space,” she added.
