We had a little over 9 weeks to install around 4500m2 of Rockfon Suspended Ceiling for Doncaster UTC including Rockfon Artic A24 600×600, Rockfon Hygienic A24 600x600mm tiles, 721no Rockfon Contour Baffles 1200x300x50mm and 24no Rockfon Eclipse Islands 1160x1160x40mm over 5 floors
We faced many challenges and interesting details over the course of this project. We had to overcome issues with the services on the soffit, some of which we too large to allow the fixing of hangers as would be standard installation for this product. We, therefore, installed subframes which gave us suitable hanging points
There was also a window detail which we had to get over, basically our trim on the window had to be fixed directly into the frame, but because the margin for error was around 15mm we decided to glue the shadow batten to the face rather than installing a mechanical fixing and running the risk of puncturing the internal membrane which would have caused the window to leak, we then installed the trim to the batten using a mechanical fix, but in order to also support and reduce the amount of weight through the batten we installed additional hangers close to the window and fixed the runners directly to the trim to mean that even if a failure was to occur the batten wouldn’t be able to drop and the ceiling would maintain it’s level and strength.
