CASE STUDY 1: CONLAY MRT STATION, KUALA LUMPURModern Ceiling Aesthetics for an Urban Vibe
Mass transit concourses and train stations are hubs of activity with high traffic. Ceiling design and material choice significantly impact the passengers’ acoustic experience and their overall travel experience. The underground Conlay MRT station on Klang Valley’s newly operational Putrajaya Line needed ceiling solutions that are functional, clean, easy to maintain, and durable while exuding a bright and welcoming ambiance at the same time.
Our product consultants utilised a strategic blend of KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Metalworks Box Plank and KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Fine Fissured ceiling tiles in the lobby and toilets of Conlay MRT station. These solutions feature high light reflective properties, good sound reduction, and are demountable. The concealed KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Prelude XL 32 Suspension Grid system gives a sleek, monolithic look to the ceilings.
The linear profile creates a modern, discontinuous look to welcome commuters to the lobby. These metal ceiling tiles are easy to clean and maintain, and offer 100% accessibility to lighting, ventilation and sprinklers systems. The bright colours leave a distinct lasting impression at the station. Armstrong Fine Fissured mineral ceiling tiles used at the station toilets area provide a cost-effective solution for Class C sound absorption, providing enhanced comfort and privacy.
CASE STUDY 2: CHAN SOW LIN MRT STATION, KUALA LUMPURBetter Acoustic Performance for Increased Passenger Comfort
Chan Sow Lin MRT Station is a busy interchange station that welcomes thousands of tourists and locals on a daily basis. Functioning as one of the core platforms that facilitate high foot traffic on both weekdays and weekends, the station needed ceiling solutions that elevate acoustic comfort while appearing sleek and modern.
For the station lobby, KNAUF Ceiling Solutions Armstrong Metalworks Clip-in ceiling tiles were used at the lobby areas. These tiles installed on a concealed suspension offer a sleek, monolithic appearance and 100% downward accessibility.
With NRC 0.70 sound absorption, the bright orange Armstrong Metalworks Clip-in ceiling tiles are great for busy train stations such as this one, making the space sound as good as it looks.
