Riccarton Road is the busiest bus corridor in Christchurch with more than 2,800 passengers boarding bus stops between Matipo Street and Kauri Street each day. This super stop is important for Environment Canterbury's new hub and spokes public transport network and it's a big step forward for commuters.
Christchurch City Council's Technical Services and Design Department selected Asona's Pyramid 3D hard deflector panels to go into the new Riccarton Bus Lounge to provide a dramatic ceiling feature. The additional value of the product's sound diffusion properties which enhance music tone quality and speech intelligibility, were perfect for the bus lounge application where information may be given over the announcement system.
Manufactured from high density alpha plaster reinforced with glass fibres, Pyramid 3D comes in a natural plaster finish or painted standard white / black (other colours to order) and is designed to fit into a standard suspended ceiling grid or can be fixed to walls with brackets.
The other Asona product selected for use in the lounge ceilings is Au.diLux, a round-holed perforated fibre cement lining panel which is easily incorporated into a wide variety of wall and ceiling systems. When supplied with Asona's optional integrated acoustic backing (IAB), Au.diLux provides a tough, durable lining with excellent acoustic properties.
Due to its versatile fibre cement substrate, Au.diLux will not burn, rot or warp, making it ideal for high humidity or moisture laden environments.
