International food company Danish Crown’s new headquarters has just been completed in Randers. The 13,000 square metre complex comprises offices, meeting rooms, fitness centre, show kitchen, canteen and break-out areas. As part of the scheme for materials in natural tones and hard surfaces, Troldtekt acoustic panels were also specified for all the ceilings to ensure good acoustics and a comfortable sound environment for the many employees throughout the building.
Designed by CEBRA Architecture, the interior maximises natural daylight and focuses on a healthy indoor climate and healthy materials.
There are different variants of Troldtekt acoustic panels throughout the building. The award-winning ‘Troldtekt® line’ from the design solutions range, in a natural finish, blends harmoniously with the brickwork in the many open areas, walkways and offices.
Mikkel Frost, architect and partner at CEBRA Architecture, comments: “Troldtekt line was a perfect match for the broken bond brickwork, while at the same time creating a good acoustic environment. The natural colour also matches the brick, so it was a bit of a no-brainer for us.”
Troldtekt acoustic panels are available in a variety of different structures and colours and combine superior sound absorption with an award-winning design. The Troldtekt range has a minimum expected life cycle of 50 years coupled with excellent resistance to humidity and tested to meet ball impact standards. The range is available in various sizes and structures and can be supplied as natural wood or finished in almost any RAL or NCS colour.
Depending on the panel specified, reaction to fire is classed in accordance with EN 13501 as B-s1,d0 or A2-s1,d0 respectively. Cradle to Cradle Certified® at Gold level, Troldtekt wood wool acoustic panels are manufactured using wood from certified forests (PEFC™ and FSC®C115450) and can contribute positively to a building’s BREEAM, WELL or LEED points.
