Alpha Panels to be fitted at Highgate Junior School

We are pleased to announce that our acoustic panels will be incorporated into the new build of Highgate Junior School in London.

We’ve worked with Architype and Wates, who are the architect and contractor of the project, to ensure that the most appropriate and effective timber panels would be used.

BCL’s panels have been installed in the school’s Main Hall using our multi-width European Oak slatted timber panel system fitted into the school’s high level soffit, to create a modern and clean look.

To continue this modern theme throughout the school BCL’s Siberian Larch “Alpha” panel system has been fitted by ourselves into classrooms as well as circulation areas.

The timber panels are Class A sound absorption, to reduce ambient sounds throughout the school. A lacquer coating has been applied to provide a Euro Class B SSF (surface spread of flame) and to protect the timber against general weathering.

There will be integrated lighting within the panels, fully demountable system and concealed fixings, creating a nice clean finish to a beautifully minimalistic design. The changes will cost £600,000 to build and will be completed April this year.
