Polyfon Mesh is a game changer in the refurbishment of existing grid and tile ceilings by providing a creative mask to the plenum which remains open to air circulation and backlighting options and is ideal for deconstructed corporate interiors, retail complexes, showrooms and large volume office spaces.
An excellent example of this is the newly refurbished Biz Dojo Ponsonby offices. Perched on the top floor of the Cider Building with sweeping views of the city through to the Waitakeres, Biz Dojo houses a community of collaboratively minded people growing great ideas and businesses. This large open collective space required an acoustic solution that could span different pitched ceiling heights, gave easy access to the plenum and could delineate different areas and zones whilst keeping the original grid to save on costs.
Polyfon Mesh in a diamond perforation pattern in both in white and in black was used extensively over the office and communal gathering areas following the pitched roofline and pulling the whole area together as a cohesive whole. A matching Sonaris diamond perforation pattern in 3mm compressed black polyester overlaid onto a Triton Duo 60 with a black facing was used in the meeting rooms to control rain attenuation noise and sound reverberation in this area.
The end result is a striking example of a bold and functional way to update a tired ceiling design and bring it into the 21st century.
