Armourcoat showcase innovative surface design at SDS
Decorative specialists Armourcoat exhibited at The Surface Design Show last week, a must-visit event for architects, designers and specifiers looking for material inspiration from the UK and around the world, with a theme of ‘Close to Home’.
The Surface Design Show, held at Islington’s Business Design Centre, is the trade show to source products, gain new insights and connect with innovative and exciting materials such as Armourcoat’s Acoustic Plaster System.
From restaurants, theatres, offices, classrooms, hotel receptions and private residences the use of hard sound reflective surfaces such as glass, wood and stone can cause excessive sound reverberation, which leads to unpleasant noise levels. The correct control of sound can create a calmer and more pleasant environment. Designed to optimise the acoustics of interior spaces, Armourcoat Acoustic comprises of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer, presenting an elegant marble-based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface.
Armourcoat recreated the hugely successful ‘quiet zone’ on their stand at the show to highlight the benefits of their acoustic system, recently granted the Quiet Mark Award – the international mark of approval from the Noise Abatement Society Charitable Foundation. Through its pioneering acoustic tests, Quiet Mark awards its distinctive Purple Q Mark to products and services that show excellence in low-noise and high-performance.
Quiet Mark launched its Acoustics Academy at the Surface Design Show this year with an opening Master Class Lunch Event featuring world-class architects and designers sharing unique technical insights for pioneering best-practice noise reduction solutions and sound-design including architectural triumph case studies using Armourcoat Acoustic.
