Rockfon strikes the right note at Bowlplex

May 2009

Bowlplex plc has recently invested over £2.9 million into a state-of-the-art leisure site in the new Atrium development in Camberley town centre. New facilities include a ten-pin bowling alley, amusements, American Pool, a bar and food outlets. Over 1750m2 of Rockfon ceilings were specified to complete the project, including Rockfon Alaska and Polar Black ceiling tiles.

Phil Mansbridge of Tekne Shopfitting was impressed with the performance of the improved Alaska range: “Rockfon ceiling tiles were used to deaden the sound impact of the Pinsetter machines at the rear of the new bowling alley. They provided the right acoustic and visual qualities needed for this project, at a very realistic price, and we’re delighted with the overall result.”

Alaska combines a smooth white surface with effective properties in the areas of acoustics, fire safety and humidity resistance. Now featuring Class A sound absorption properties, Alaska is also available in a dB option to provide enhanced acoustic performance. Originally available in a 12mm thickness, this has now been increased to 15mm, while the D-edge is 20mm. This makes Alaska even more robust and suitable for any environment. Offered in tile and plank formats, Alaska also includes a concealed edge option.

Laserline Ceilings & Partitions Ltd, Bridgend carried out the installation at the Camberley Bowlplex and have been using Rockfon products for many years. Commenting on this project, Mark Elford noted: “We found the new Alaska tiles to be very lightweight yet still robust, which made them exceptionally easy to handle and install. We will definitely be recommending them on future projects.”

Rockfon’s Polar Black ceiling tiles were installed in the American Pool room at the new centre to create the perfect atmosphere in this area. Polar Colour tiles are available in a range of ten standard colour options, with a wider palette available on special request. Combined with a smooth surface finish and high sound absorption properties, Polar Colour tiles are ideal for creating distinctive interior environments to suit any design scheme.

Laserline also carried out an installation at a second Bowlplex in Cwmbran. This was part of a refurbishment project that again included the installation of over 1500m2 of Rockfon products.
