Forman Ceiling + Wall System Delivers for Waihi College

These are key ingredients for any product or systems to survive a tough school environment.

The architect brief from Opus Hamilton for Waihi College was clear and decisive; “a high performance ceiling and wall panel system complementing each other which is ensured to deliver a quality interior environment with minimal noise disruption”. Forman Building Systems Ltd had the ideal package of products to meet the design brief, choosing to use Eurocoustic Acoustichoc® ceiling tiles and Echopanel acoustic panels.

Eurocoustic Acoustichoc is a high density thermo-acoustic ceiling panel, manufactured from stone wool and faced with white reinforced glass tissue. This combination provides a high level of impact resistance, while a proprietary grid clip system eliminates any concern of tiles dislodging from the grid.

It was important to create a natural flow between the ceiling and the wall panels; choosing Echopanel 500 (off white) allowed a seamless and continuous design on the walls, while providing superior acoustic performance. Installed with a 50mm air gap between the primary substrate, Echopanel delivers an NRC of 0.7.

Made from 100% recycled and recyclable PET foam, Echopanel offers a decorative sustainable solution for a variety of ceiling and wall applications, while providing an easy to clean surface, meaning stress free maintenance.
