Timber Panels with in-built INFECTION CONTROL


BCL have recently launched a ground-breaking new ANTI-MICROBIAL coating for our acoustic wood panels, which when paired with our unique anti-viral fabric creates an acoustic timber panel system that provides lasting INFECTION CONTROL without any maintenance whatsoever! 

Silver ion technology is built into both our fabrics and now a unique timber coating, to provide wooden slat panels that fight bacteria and viruses on surface contact.

Not only ideal for Healthcare environments, but also any high use office or public buildings, where a level of lasting infection control will provide significant value to the building and its users. The BCL system allows you to deliver beautiful wooden slat walls and acoustic wood ceilings that will effectively fight bacterial and viral spread, limiting risk and elevating the value delivered to the end client.

Low level wall areas subject to regular contact or 'touch points' provide significant risk in high use buildings for infection and disease spread and in a post pandemic world, the consideration of infection control in building design will be ongoing and part of our future built environment.

BCL Timber Ceilings on-site at N2 in London


BCL have begun installation of the beautfiul acoustic wooden slatted ceiling at the N2 site in the heart of Victoria. Formerly known as Nova East, the N2 is the latest addition by LandSec to their mammoth Nova masterplan, which brings multi-use mixed development workspaces to the rejuvenated area of the West End.

The acoustic wood ceiling selected uses Seet Chestnut in a Class B acoustic configuration and makes use of BCL's unique 3-D BIM ready design dperatment, with its complex and interconnected mutli-plane geometry. 

The project is a great example of the unique design flexilibty of a BCL system over the vast array of 'off the shelf' panels on the market. The BCL acoustic timber panel system allows for the potential creation of many panel sizes, all prefabrictaed so there is no cutting or shaping of panels on site... this vastly reduces on site waste and installation time.

The wooden slat ceiling also falling under Approved Document B regulation was full systems fire tested at one of BCL's UKAS accredietd testing partners and acheived full classification of class B-s2,d0.
BCL have been partnering with Lucas fit-out to deliver this timber slat ceiling for Mace Construction on this prestigious project and are proud to have our acoustic wood panels as the system of choice once again.

BCL Start Installation of Timber Ceiling at 8 Bishopsgate


BCL have recently begun installation of the beautiful new acoustic timber slat ceiling system to the reception space at 8 Bishopsgate in London, on behalf of Brown & Carrol and working in partnership with Lendlease...

The project, designed by the renowned Wilkinson Eyre Architects and their largest in London, is set to be the UK's tallest structure to acheive a BREEAM 'Outstanding' Rating and uses and array of design principles to help reduce CO2 consumption and the building's overall footprint. The BCL acoustic timber slat ceiling system itself uses solid FSC® certified wood slat panels in Sweet Chestnut and delivers Class C acoustic performance and is full systems fire tested to EN13501-1, acheiving Euroclass B-s2,d0 classification. A key design requirement was to develop a grid detail for the acoustic wooden slatted ceilings that allowed for easy access to lighting terminals and sprinkler equipment, whilst also fitting into a very tight service void.
