- Solutions for Mall Ceilings


Walking around the mall space in clockwise fashion from the left of the entrance we first encounter some shops.

Custom is standard at Anutone! Ceiling systems as visualised by the architect including radial, trapezoidal, curves or other seemingly impossible designs are delivered in lab-certified, factory-finished state by Anutone enabling a top-quality install with near-zero snag list and hence quick project turnaround. The walkthrough below shows how to achieve the best of ceilings for your mall.

Shops
Though the interiors of shops are usually done by the tenants where the developer is expected to provide warm shell, Subtex texture ceilings in grid format are a great draw. In standard, large, plank and float formats Subtex ceilings offer a smooth, white surface finish which provides serene, sublime looks and act as a light diffuser when up-luminaires are focussed on it.

Walkthrough Entrance
The entrance lobby provides the first impression for the shopper and Stretch SLS fabric ceilings, with a smooth, seamless surface for diffused uplighting, create the right mood.

Food Court
Serge metal ceilings are the right choice for the F&B areas due to the hygiene factor. Serge ceilings fulfil cleanroom conditions for food serving; are easy to clean and maintain; are rugged and durable for longlasting use in such an environment. Serge Aquila are unperf metal and Serge Auriga are microperf metal ceilings. Kitchens are better served with the cleaner Matvin Stella vinyl ceilings in grid format. For the sit-out area for F&B, Spots MP3 wood ceilings are a good contrast.

Corridors
The corridors around the atrium have Designpanel Pixel microperf in combination with Tufbloc ceilings in span format for a true seamless finish. Areas that need plenum access, for service equipment located around the columns, sport the matching Belgravia Pixel microperf plaster ceiling in grid format with Skelet U15.

Atrium
The atrium roof features Wave KLH baffles suspended vertically. This allows the skylight to come right through and yet provide a colourful ambience to the atrium void. The baffles can be draped with corporate branding for additional revenue generation.

Health Club
Shopper activity spaces like the health club and gym feature Subtle Texture in dynamic shapes like Hexagon for Celebration Clouds which is together in short known as Shapes ST Clouds. Clouds are a smart to impart

volume to a space and yet provide the necessary visual breaks, light reflection and acoustic islands.

The boxoffice needs a low-cost functional ceiling and Sisoli Safari mineral fibre tiles on Skelet T15 are best suited. Meanwhile more shops means more Subtex Texture ceilings though Sisoli Safari is also an option for the budget conscious.

Lounge Bar
The lounge bar and nightclub features a primary ceiling of Septum or MAT BSB which keeps the noise and vibration within the space and a secondary ceiling of Stretch SLS Ebony the black surface of which provides the dark background for discoheque lights as well as absorption for the high-decibel noise.

Kids Zone
Last, we encounter the Children Entertainment Zone which can have Slats wood ceilings in primary colours for a truly awesome look that keeps both parents and children entertained

Utilities
The washrooms and mechanical rooms that include the airconditioning plant feature the every popular Serge Layin metal ceilings for easy access and durability.

Install
Anutone provides project support and assigns its engineers to site at regular intervals to handhold the main contractor and ceiling contractor in execution of the ceiling solution and ensure high fidelity between design intent and project reality.

Multiplex Cinema
The interiors of cinema are usually done by the operator but where the builder is expected to provide a warm shell on wet lease, Subtex Ebony black texture ceilings on Skelet T15 Ebony in grid format with a perimeter of Slate Ebony are a great draw. Towards the screen side to prevent any reflection of screenlight on the t-grid and to offer a uniform black surface, Stretch SLS Ebony works just great! It is most matte surface ever for near-100% light absorption.

CONCLUSION
Anutone works as a true friend of the architect for ceilings in mall projects. This frees up valuable bandwidth and time of the architect and allows them to focus on other areas of concern. Anutone thus adds value to the architects practice and ensures the ecosystem feels good about mall ceilings!

Entrance

- Solutions for School Ceilings

Walkthrough
The entrance is the first impression for the student, the parent and the teacher. It sets the tone for the experience to come and is a combination of Serge Platz ACP and Serge Platz AHP in large-format span-type metal ceiling.

Admin
To the left and right of the entrance are the admin rooms which sport Belgravia Pixel on Skelet Omni in grid format. The principals room exudes warmth and immediately puts nervous visitors at ease with Salon Spots MP3 microperf wood ceilings. On the opposite side the Record room is well served with Strand natural ceilings.

Staffroom
Teachers need a serene, sublime ceiling that keeps them relaxed. Also of help would be high light reflectance and here it is Subtex Nubby in Skelet Trelis that fulfils the needs.

Special Rooms Atrium/Assembly


Atrium cum assembly area has hard reflective surfaces that are so easy to maintain but results in a cacophony when energetic students get noisy. Soft Wave KLH hanging baffles is the answer. In bright colours the Wave baffles brighten up the space, allow skylighting through for daylight views to all spaces including classrooms and absorb noise. Art and craft activities have special needs. The Music Room needs sounds emanating from instruments to be preserved and not absorbed. Enriching the sound are Scat Pyramidal diffusers in a 3D format that evokes the emotion. The Dance Room needs dynamism and the feeling of more space. While mirrors do the trick on the walls, for the ceiling an open plenum with Carnival Floats helps. Subtex Pebble texture ceiling with Skelet Trelis in the Carnival Floats works best. The Art Room is a creative space and needs a matching creative ceiling. What better than Shapes ST, a discrete type ceiling in a cloud format. Washrooms on either side for girls and boys have the very functional, very rugged Serge Astral Aquila. Narrow passageways have the Serge Planx. A widespan single panel with access, exactly what corridors need! Then we come to the central core of the building.

Atrium Corridors
The atrium corridors need a smooth, seamless, uncluttered look. A combination of Designpanel Pixel microperf gypsum and Tufbloc does the trick. If plenum access is desired then Belgravia Pixel and Belgravia Regula matches the seamless gypsum. We now walk around the school premises in clockwise fashion.

Classrooms
The classroom need high-hygiene, naturally-breathing ceilings and nothing fits the bill better than MatSolo natural ceilings in Skelet Uno.

Library & Labs


The library is where scholars retire for solitude and quietitude! For serious reading that requires adequate diffused lighting and reveberation-free environment, deliverance comes from Stretch SLS fabric ceilings which is span type and provides a seamless, plaster look. On the contrary the labs require a functional ceiling that is rugged, cleanroom compliant and not affected by steam or chemical fumes. Such a rare combination of features is endowed in Matvin Shingle vinyl ceilings. Returning to our clockwise tour we encounter a number of multidiscipline activity spaces.

Mechanical Rooms
All rooms that house mechanical equipment like AHUs, gensets, pumps etc need a durable surface that can take abuse yet reflect light and absorb high-decibel noise. It cannot get better than Serge Astral Nebula in grid format with access to the plenum for servicing etc.

possible from Anutone, the current international trend is to go for Slats wood ceilings in a span format. The advantage of Slats is that it offers many variants in melamine and veneer apart from slat widths from 16mm to 64mm. What is more it offers variable acoustics with Slats Diffuse diffusing and partially reflecting whereas as Slats and Slats Serate absorbing sound with the latter acting as a diffuser as well. The stage ceiling sports the evergreen Mat Ebony on Skelet Trelis.

Sports Hall
Enthusiatic and energetic students like to play a lot.in ball sports the ball gets thrown around and impacts the surfaces. The ceiling needs volume too so an open plenum look with Wave GLD+ Clouds works very well.

Dispensary & Canteen


The dispensary features the utility of Serge Astral Aquila whereas the attached dormitory has the Strand natural ceilings. Canteens can get very noisy yet need to impart a feeling of voluminous space. Options that work well are Strand Ebony natural ceilings against the roof slab as a primary ceiling and a secondary ceiling of Serge Cubix opencell metal ceiling. Downlights are installed between the Strand Ebony and the Serge Cubix.

Install
Anutone provides project support and assigns its engineers to site at regular intervals to handhold the main contractor and ceiling contractor in execution of the ceiling solution and ensure high fidelity between design intent and reality.

Walkthrough - Front Of House Entrance


The entrance lobby provides the first impression for the guest and needs to be visually striking to set the tone for the rest of the journey. A two-level ceiling works very well with the primary ceiling consisting of Subtex Ebony on Skelet Ebony in grid format to create a neutral but contrasting background to what is to follow. The secondary ceiling consists of Shapes ST Clouds in dazzling white, suspended discretely. Each Cloud also acts as an energysaving, giant lighting reflector. The reception area features Stretch SLS fabric ceilings, with a smooth, seamless surface for diffused uplighting, to add to the welcoming mood. Behind the reception is the cloakroom which features the very functional Strand natural ceilings in grid format on Skelet T24 suspension.

Health Club
Multi-activity spaces for guests like the health club and gym feature a maintenance-free and warm ambience wood-based ceiling as in Spots MP3 with downlighting focussed on the equipment.

Guestrooms
The most important space in a hotel are the guestrooms. Ceilings need to be smooth, seamless and feature-less for guests to feel serene when they lie down and look up after the hard day of work. Anutones wonder choice is Stretch SLS, a dry ceiling installed in a jiffy with entire floor of rooms completed in over a night! The room vestibule can feature Slats wood ceiling.

Business Centre
Just behind the reception is the backoffice and also the business centre. A small space is given more volume with an open plenum and Subtex Carnival Floats grid/discrete ceiling. Subtex provides a brilliant white surface to aid daylight views and also as a diffusive reflector for uplighting.

helps to remove any such dread! The ceilings are cleanroomstandard, hence completely healthy, light reflective as the doctors on duty need all possible light to deal with the emergencies and provide easy accessibility to the plenum above for servicing the utilities.

Walkthrough

The entrance makes the first impression on the patient, the doctor, and the visitor. It sets a welcoming tone for the experience to come and is a combination of Platz ACP and Platz AHP in large-format span-type metal ceiling. With a very low density of neat, straight joint lines due to the large-format, and a dust/water-repellant polished surface finish, Platz is the way to go for entrances!

Atrium
Then comes the grand showpiece of any planned hospital building - the atrium. Atrium usually has hard reflective surfaces that look good on the eyes and are so easy to maintain but can result in a cacophony when things get noisy. Wave KLH hanging baffles is the answer. In bright colours the Wave baffles brighten up the space, allow skylighting through for energysaving daylight views to all spaces including wards and absorb noise. All in all such a bright, colourful atrium would spread positive energy and evoke a feeling of wellness, just what a hospital is supposed to do.

Reception
The reception is the first point of interaction and made sublime with the use of Stretch SLS that puts anxious patients and their minders immediately at ease. It helps that such a ceiling functions as a diffuse light reflector spreading an even and warm glow all around! Between the entrance and the reception is the lobby the ceiling of which is cladded with Slats Beech wood ceiling. This unique ceiling exudes warmth and is again designed to bring relief to the nerves of the space user!

Atrium Corridors
The atrium corridors need a smooth, seamless, uncluttered look. A combination of Belgravia Pixel microperf gypsum in Trelis or Uno grids and Slate plain gypsum does the trick. Plenum access is via the Belgravia Pixel and matches the seamless gypsum very well. We now walk around the hospital premises in clockwise fashion.

Cash / Dispensary
Next to the reception is the cash counter and the chemist for small medicine dispensation. These functional spaces feature Subtex Nubby texture ceilings. The tinkling of money is quickly absorbed by this high performance ceiling!

Intensive Care Unit Waiting Lobby


To the right of the reception is the waiting area. The designers of Anutones Sleuth programme know that waiting can be a very boring pastime that visitors would rather avoid. What better than have an open plenum ceiling with Wave GLD hanging baffles. These can be in bright, vibrant colours to make an otherwise dull atmosphere very cheerful. What is more, the colours can be matched or contrasted to the colours of the sofa and chairs. The ICU is a mission critical space and hence similar to the Emergency Ward in its ceiling application. Here too Astral Aquila metal ceilings perform in terms of aesthetic sensibilities and functional capabilities.

Medical Labs
A number of functional spaces like ECG & echogram, X-ray, MRI scans and reports centre need a uniform treatment of the ceiling and here again Matvin Shingle of OPD fame comes into play! By providing similar ceilings for same-function rooms results in simplicity of install and economies of scale.

OPD
Adjoining the Waiting Lobby is the Out Patient Department which is a constant activity space with daycare or firstaid patients coming and going quickly. What better ceiling than Matvin Shingle vinyl tiles that are antiseptic, wet-wipable, light reflecting and sound absorbing. Matvin Shingle offers a neutral background to the hive of activity below and hence perfectly suits such spaces!

Operation Theatre
No prizes for guessing this one. It is obviously as critical a space as the Emergency (also known as Casualty or Trauma Centre) Ward and the ICU. Astral Aquila does duty with aplomb! There could be a difference though! Surgeons may prefer an aluminium high-gloss mirror finish or pure stainless-steel for imparting a sense of volume and spaciousness apart from high light reflectivity.

Emergency
To the left of the reception is the emergency ward, a dreaded area! However, the languidity of Astral Aquila metal ceilings

Applications Guide

Wards
The wards for men and women are areas of post-trauma recuperation and rest. The patient is most times staring at the ceiling and hence they must not be boring. Helping the patient recover are Subtex Pebble texture ceilings. With a subtle play of white and black, the ceilings are three-dimensional in their texture and also offer the functionalities of light reflectance and sound absorption. A variant can be the all-new Subtex Pebble Plus where the black is replaced with light tones of pink.

sound absorption and also to project a floating look, the tiles can be ensconced in Skelet Infinity perimeter trims.

Utility Rooms
All rooms that house mechanical equipment like AHUs, gensets, pumps etc need a durable surface that can take abuse yet reflect light and absorb high-decibel noise. It cannot get better than Astral Nebula metal ceiling in grid format with access to the plenum for servicing etc. On the other hand, the washrooms do feature the same metal ceilings but in the unperf variant - Astral Aquila.

Maternity Section
The maternity section features a combination of Matvin Shingle and Astral Aquila. The highlighting feature of the newborn room - neonatology - is that the ceiling can be delivered in in a unique pattern of skyblue colour and white clouds to give the feeling of sunny outdoors. For those that have just come into the world Anutone has a welcome gift - bluesky ceilings!

Cafetaria
The cafetaria space can get very noisy yet it needs to impart a feeling of voluminous space. Options that work well are Strand Ebony natural ceilings against the roof slab as a primary ceiling and a secondary ceiling of Serge Cubix open-cell metal ceiling. Downlights are installed between the Strand Ebony and the Cubix resulting in a very interesting building element. Since Strand Ebony is naturally black, Cubix can be either white or in any bright colour like bright red, golden yellow, lime green etc. Thus making the space very dynamic yet relaxing!

Staff Room
The staff room is very utilitarian yet it needs to have a calming effect on the occupants that face the stress of being the intermediaries between demanding patients, inquisitive visitors and sometimes eccentric doctors! At the same time the management would not spend a fortune on such a space hence Sisoli Safari does duty in the staff room. Simple, functional, economical - a win-win for everybody! Adjoining the staff room the meeting room that handle simple to complex AV-conferencing - where doctors from across the world can come together and discuss a medical procedure. Hence this room needs a high performance ceiling and gets it in the form of Subtex Nubby. To take advantages of dual side

Special Rooms
Rooms like the VIP suites and blood bank are again special and similar to the spaces that use Astral Aquila metal ceilings.

Pathology
The path labs are accorded one of the highest status in terms of cleanroom ratings and hence the best option is to stick to the tried, tested, proven - Astral Aquila!

Gym
Both for cardio-analysis and patients on the mend, the gym has now become another important space in a modern hospital. The ceiling needs volume so an open plenum look with Wave GLD+ Clouds works very well.

OTHER SPACES
Other spaces not shown in our centrespread drawing but which are gradually becoming an integral part of any modern hospital are:

Auditorium
The auditorium usually is the pride of any hospital. It is a space of focal activity where the entire hospital staff comes together on special occasions. Though many options are possible from Anutone, the current international trend is to go for Slats wood ceilings in a span format. The advantage of Slats is that it offers many variants in melamine and veneer apart from slat widths from 16mm to 128mm. What is more, it offers variable acoustics with Slats Diffuse diffusing and partially reflecting whereas Slats and Slats Serate absorb sound with the latter acting as a diffuser as well. The stage ceiling sports the evergreen Mat Ebony on Trelis Ebony.

Install
Anutone provides project support and assigns its engineers to site at regular intervals to handhold the main contractor and ceiling contractor in execution of the ceiling solution and ensure high fidelity between design intent and reality.

CONCLUSION
Anutone works as a true friend of the architect for ceilings in hospital projects. This frees up valuable bandwidth and time of the architect and allows her to focus on other areas of concern. Anutone thus adds value to the architects practice and ensures the ecosystem feels good about hospital ceilings!

Carnival Floats

Architectural spaces are there to be designed. The ideas belong to the designer. Anutone can enable the designer capture their ideas and turn them from concept to reality. Think islands in the sky and Carnival Floats is the reality. Yes! Whether it is for initial design or an afterthought, Carnival Floats with Skelet Infinity is for all seasons. Creating light coves, ceiling clouds, floating islands, projected transitions and design accents with modular tiles suspended on Skelet O15 / U15 / T15 or a seamless finish with gypsum-based Snazz is now so easy and simple thanks to the innovation of Carnival Floats with Skelet Infinity. What is more, with the special Primary Carrier, Carnival Floats can now be assembled on the floor and hoisted up - quick and easy! Game-change
Not only are Carnival Floats with modular tiles or seamless panels possible but also the quick and easy answer to site-installed gypsum assemblies that are traditionally used to create similar effect. The traditional method which is timeconsuming, expensive, imperfect and non-acoustics is now rendered primitive and avoidable.

Applications
Carnival Floats is ideally suited for all new-age commercial buildings offices auditoriums malls hotels hospitals education And all other interior spaces that have adopted the futuristic concepts of open plenum with floats as the norm.

Benefits
Open plenums wall-to-wall ceilings are pass and Carnival Floats enables bucking the trend by allowing the designer to open up the plenum Designer ceilings the options are unlimited and designers can unleash their creativity in any which way they want Carnival provides engineered solutions to your imagination. See Design Options on later pages. Economical as the entire ceiling area is not covered with the grid and panels, there are obvious savings in costs Faster project turnaround Carnival Floats eliminates the need for time-consuming and laborious site work

Features Carnival

Please refer Skelet brochure for more details.

Acoustical Performance
Carnival Floats provide greater sound absorption than a continuous ceiling of the same surface area because the soundwaves are absorbed from both surfaces of the float the exposed bottom surface and the non-exposed top surface. Factors to be considered for acoustical performance include Size of the float Number of floats for a given enclosed space Plenum depth of the float from the soffit Ceiling tile or panel selection Acoustical overlay (if any) on the ceiling tile or panel

Design Considerations
Only Skelet Infinity Square Edge can sport rounded corners. Steppe & Knife Edge cannot feature rounded corners. The colour matching of Skelet Infinity and Skelet T15 / O15 / U15 to a coloured ceiling tile will achieve 75-95% results as it represents two very different materials. Floats can only be installed in a horizontal plane. It cannot be sloped or curved along its horizontal axis. Floats like any other architectural elements located in the plenum may interfere with fire detection and suppression systems. Life safety system must be installed in the open plenum areas or penetrated through the ceiling floats. In seismic zones additional lateral supports may become necessary. These are not included in original kits. Floats is not for outdoor use.

Wave

Applications Guide

67

Wave
Wave is a unique design option where the panels are suspended vertically from the ceiling enhancing the look of the whole space dramatically. In addition to their acoustic properties, the excellent aesthetics makes them a designers delight!

68

Applications Guide

Wave are hanging baffles that are used to add to the ambience and reduce overall noise levels in high-ceiling commercial, industrial, recreational and other noisy areas. Wave baffles are suspended from the roof or ceiling above or from the structure near the noise source. Being lightweight and modular, Wave baffles do not add to the structural weight and lend themselves to flexibility in aesthetic and acoustic design. Added advantage is that Wave baffles being vertically installed, allow skylighting and visibility to beautiful roof structures. Being available in a range of finishes and bright colours, Wave baffles can brighten up dreary interiors and dramatically alter the looks of a place. Actual room noise reduction can be up to 10 dBA depending on the configuration of the space and the absorption present before installing the Wave baffles. Three types are available in Anutones soft series Wave GLD Wave KLH Wave ST

Wave KLH are vinyl-wrapped baffles available in 108 colours.

Wave ST baffles are designed for areas requiring excellent acoustical absorption with a drywall look. Use in conference rooms, auditoriums, churches, corridors, lobbies, hallways and other areas requiring both sound absorption and a high quality custom painted finish. Wave ST baffles come factory-finished white. Custom colours are also offered to precisely match any interior design palette.

Wave GLD are fabric-wrapped baffles. Fabrics are available in a riot of bright colours for all types of architectural spaces and interior decors.
