Robert Palmer



Albany Primary School recently completed an exciting building project which included a new administration block and staff room. Project Manager, Robert Palmer (EBS) chose Autex Quietspace® Ceiling Tiles due to their superior sound absorption properties and high ‘green building’ credentials. 

Quieter, more peaceful environments for staff

School staff rooms and administration offices can be high-frequency noise environments. To ensure comfortable and quiet places for administration staff to work and teaching staff to relax, Quietspace® ceiling tiles were chosen for their superior performance, aesthetic appeal and ease of installation. The 25mm square edge ceiling tiles are especially well suited to open-plan areas, such as staff rooms. They are also highly durable providing long-term stability and performance.

Overcoming challenges

When it comes to installing ceiling tiles, keeping them clean is one of the biggest challenges installers face. Autex Ceiling tiles have been specially engineered with a fine polyester spunbond protective finish which can be easily peeled off after installation, ensuring a superb,  clean finish without finger prints or marks on the tiles.

Eco-friendly approach.

Albany Primary School has an Eco-friendly approach to everything they do. Quietspace® Ceiling Tiles were the obvious choice for the project. Quietspace® Ceiling Tiles are made from only 100% safe and friendly polyester fibres with a minimum 60% recycled content from used and recycled PET plastics. The polyester fibres are thermally bonded then thermally moulded to form a rigid and incredibly durable tile. This unique method ensures a clean and simple manufacturing process that eliminates the need for chemical binders and carcinogens commonly found in mineral fibre and fibreglass tiles. Quietspace® Ceiling Tiles are therefore completely safe at all stages of the building fit-out and pose no on-going health risk to staff and students.

Looking ahead.

In any education environment, durability is an important requirement of any building material or product. Quietspace® Ceiling Tiles are resistant to chipping, cracking and edge damage reducing breakage and wastage . Long term stability and performance mean Albany Primary’s administration buildings retain a modern appearance for years to come.
