Rockfon displays its acoustic solutions in new Peugeot showroom

June 23, 2016

Underwoods Motor Group is the largest independent dealership in Essex and Suffolk. The group is celebrating the opening of its impressive Peugeot new car showroom in Sudbury, which has been fitted with Rockfon acoustic ceiling tiles to help create a stylish interior design to show the cars to best effect whilst also creating a comfortable, welcoming environment for customers.


Superior functionality and durability

Underwoods wanted an interior design that would achieve superior functionality and outstanding customer experience. The showroom is fitted with full-height glazing so the ability for the ceiling to contribute toward controlling solar glare was an important requirement.

Mike Strain, MD of motor trade architectural consultants Scaramanga Design, emphasised the importance of colour and durability within the specification. "Having worked with Rockfon before, I had confidence their products would deliver. We worked with their team and chose Rockfon Color-all in the 'Concrete' surface colour as this dark tone helped control light reflecting off the polished cars, enabling customers to view the vehicles in their best light whilst creating the right mood."

Suspension grid in matching colour

The ceilings in Underwood’s showroom are fitted with an exposed Chicago Metallic® T24 Click 2890 grid in a matching Concrete colour to create an almost continuous appearance. Color-all ceiling tiles are available in exposed, semi-concealed or concealed edges in a large variety of dimensions giving architects and interior designers total design freedom.

Light and spacious offices

The offices in the dealership are fitted with Rockfon® Artic™ to give a light, spacious feel to these rooms. Rockfon Artic is an affordable range of 15mm thick, smooth, white tiles in semi-concealed and visible grid options. The smooth white surface is ideal for reflecting light back into the room, helping to reduce energy bills. The tiles are cost-effective and offer good functionality for a variety of areas requiring minimum Class C sound absorption.

I was looking for an alternative to a white ceiling and I like the dark grey of the Rockfon tiles; I knew they would fit the modern design we were looking for.
