British Gypsum has responded to the growing demand for improved acoustics in residential and commercial buildings by setting up a specialist division to focus on its range of acoustic ceiling solutions.

Whilst recognising that there will always be a demand for basic functional ceilings, new Ceilings Sales Manager, Steve Wintle, believes that ‘intelligent’ ceilings – ceilings that actively control the internal acoustic environment of building spaces, will continue to grow in popularity as construction becomes more sophisticated and building standards rise.

“We already have a range of ceiling tiles developed specifically to help control speech intelligibility in school classrooms, conference centres and similar areas”, says Steve, “and the choice of perforation options available in our ceilings range enables the architect and acoustic consultant to engineer an appropriate acoustic solution for almost any space – from a large auditorium to retail spaces and common areas in modern residential developments.”

“The range of patterns available in tile, plank and large board format, also enables architects to create stunning ceiling designs which compliment and often provide a dominant eye-catching feature for the modern building interior.

Steve and his new team of acoustic ceilings Business Development Managers, Jef Hammond (South), Jenni Muston (Central), and Paul Stringer (North), with Product/Marketing Manager, Stephen Jeffries, will provide a UK-wide service for contractors and stockists, working closely alongside other British Gypsum sales and technical specialists to provide a complete specification and sales support service.
