Following the launch of Armstrong Ceiling‘s new education brochure, the leading UK manufacturer will be exhibiting a new virtual reality ceiling installation at various education shows this term.

The VR experience will transport users to a typical classroom setting which has not been acoustically treated. Users will have the opportunity to experience first hand what they would hear in terms of typical classroom noise and clatter effects and how they affect the ability to learn and general acoustic comfort. 

In addition, the VR will enable the user to experience the acoustical transformation of the learning environment through the installation of a ceiling system solution.

Armstrong is expected to exhibit at Education Estates exhibition at Manchester Central from October 16th to 17th (stand G11) and at the Education Buildings exhibition at Edinburgh International Conference Centre from November 21st to 22nd (stand B9).

The VR makes it easy to understand the importance of good acoustics in education environments. The presentation also demonstrates how a high light-reflecting ceiling can also help with eye strain and fatigue.

The new education brochure will also be available at the Armstrong stand, as well as demonstrations of Armstrong’s online selector tool. This advises specifiers on the well-being requirements for a variety of school rooms including auditoriums, classrooms, gyms, cafes, lobbies and corridors.

Case studies on the use of Armstrong solutions at UK schools including Ystalyfera Welsh Medium Comprehensive School in South Wales, Royal Holloway University of London and Parsons Tower at Newcastle College, will also be featured.
