Shackerley clads Consett LC

Shackerley has supplied over 900sq m of SureClad® ceramic granite ventilated façade cladding for Consett Leisure Centre and the adjoining Consett Academy, adding premium quality external finishes for both parts of the £44m development.

Seymour Harris, architects to main contractor Carillion, specified ceramic granite in a light stone colourway for the leisure centre and multi-format black panels for the academy frontage. “Shackerley’s ceramic granite gave us everything we were looking for - excellent clean lines, stunning appearance of quality, robustness with long term low maintenance and confidence that it would perform on all counts,” said Tim Johnson, Seymour Harris director. Bespoke art deco carpet

In another partnership with Pullmantur, the Spanish division of RCCL, the world’s largest cruise ship company, Lano has installed 600sq m of Axminster carpet on the Empress.

Three bespoke designs were employed explains Pullmantur’s Riccardo Tonini: “The three designs were to offer a bold outlook, something to get guests talking. An art deco style was soon agreed upon, creating a feel of sophistication through a fan design that would cascade into a smaller all over feature. A bespoke bordered runner was placed on the main stairway to the upper restaurant, complementing the gold and grey broadloom designs found on both levels.”

Accessible loos boost visitors

Venues can increase their share of a multi- million pound market by making toilets more accessible says new research, reinforcing a theory presented by specialists in toilet assistive technology at home and away, Clos-o-Mat.

The research, by Disabled Access Day and Euans Guide, highlighted that having an accessible toilet was the second highest influencing factor for respondents, with 80 per cent of them listing it as important. “We go to the toilet on average eight times a day, so the chances are if you’re visiting somewhere away from home you will need to make use of washroom facilities,” explains Clos-o-Mat’s Robin Tuffley.

Optima Baffles Curves

Armstrong Ceilings has stolen an industry first with the launch of Optima Baffles Curves to enhance its existing range of rectangular ones.

The mineral Optima curved baffles feature all the benefits of the traditional rectangular ones but with the added twist of a unique waveform edge which allows designers to create a fresh aesthetic without compromising acoustic performance. The new curved mineral range features pre- fitted and re-positionable spiral anchors for easy alignment and installation, saving sub- contractors time on site. They are available in two sizes and painted white on all edges for high light reflectance of 87 per cent.
