  14. 14. Sustainability BREEAM Partitioning - Green guide A or A+ LEED Manufacturing / materials location Ska Partitioning - Reused / Re-locatable ISO 14001 accredited factories EPD or ISO 14025 standard Environmental Product Declarations Ceilings - 15 EPDs cover 145 grid and tile options
  16. 16. Acoustic overview Acoustic / Occupant Comfort A large percentage of a buildings cost is directly related to its occupation Essential for productivity in the workplace Poor acoustic environment significantly affects performance Sound is a series of waves or pressure fluctuations. Measured in Hz Humans can hear between 20Hz – 20,000Hz Pressure is measured in Decibels (dB)
  17. 17. Acoustic Performance - Absorption Acoustic absorption Ability of a surface to absorb sound, minimising the reflection of sound energy back into a space The room characteristic that defines this feature is “reverberation time” the length of time (in seconds) that it takes for a sound source to decay by 60 dB. Measured Sound Absorption Rating (αω) Sound Absorption Class (Class A to E) Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC)
  18. 18. Acoustic Performance - Attenuation Acoustic attenuation Sound attenuation is used to describe the reduction in sound between two spaces separated by a dividing element, with two basic sound transmission paths. Direct sound transmission is the level of sound passing through the dividing element I.e. – Relocatable Partitioning Flanking sound transmission is the level of sound passing through surrounding structures I.e. – Suspended Ceilings Results measured in dB and presented as a single figure
  19. 19. Acoustic Performance – Ceilings Buildings need to achieve a balance and mix of sound absorption and attenuation products to achieve the correct results Absorption Acoustic fleece - 0.65αω / Class C Acoustic pad - 0.90αω / Class A Acoustic pad and steel backing plate - 0.70αω / Class C Acoustic pad and plasterboard backing - 0.65αω / Class C Attenuation Plain tile - 43dB Acoustic fleece - 13dB Acoustic pad - 30dB Acoustic pad and steel backing plate - 48dB Acoustic pad and plasterboard backing - 49dB
  20. 20. The acoustic performance of partitioning can vary subject to the specified build Glass can provide between 32 and 49 dB subject to Build configuration Glass type Cavity size Types of door installed Acoustic Performance – Partitioning
  22. 22. Fire Performance - Ceilings Requirements for fire performance Building Regulations, Part B (Fire Safety) Metal ceiling tiles tested and certified in accordance with: BS 476-23 (also known as Class 0) EN13501-1 European equivalent for Class O B-s3,d2 B = Fire behaviour s3 = Smoke production (no limit) D2 = droplets debris (no limit) Metal tiles have a European Class performance of: A2-s1,d0
  23. 23. Fire Performance - Partitioning Fire resistant partitions provide a means of escape or compartmentalise a building Approved Document B BB 100 – Design for fire safety in schools HTM 56 – Partitions BS476 Part 20:1987 – Method for determination of the fire resistance of elements of construction (Test Methods) BS476 Part 22:1987 – Methods for determination of the fire resistance of elements of non-load bearing elements of construction Partitioning is designed to provide vertical fire separation when exposed to fire from one side The Image to the left shows a fire test after 7 minutes
  24. 24. Fire Performance - Partitioning Fire test procedures measures: Integrity – The time for the partition to remain intact Insulation – The time for the temperature to rise by 180°C on the non fire side of the partition Results are given in time: 30/0 - 30 mins integrity 30/30 - 30 mins integrity, 30 mins insulation 60/0 - 60 mins integrity 60/30 - 60 mins integrity, 30 mins insulation 60/60 - 60 mins integrity, 60 mins insulation The Image to the left shows the same fire test after 73 minutes
  26. 26. Structural performance - Partitioning Categories of Duty relating to stiffness and robustness of solid partitioning is defined by BS5234-2: 1992 Annexes A to G BS5234 is dedicated to internal partitioning Atrium glazing is specified to BS6180 (Code of Practice for protective barriers) and must be applied due to higher line loading requirements
  27. 27. Structural performance - Partitioning Testing Procedures Annex A – Stiffness Annex B – Small hard body impact test (surface damage) Annex C – Resistance to damage by impact from a large soft body Annex D – Perforation by small hard impact Annex E – Resistance to structural damage by impact from a large soft body Annex F – Door slamming Annex G – Crowd pressure
  28. 28. Ceiling Suspension Association of Interior Specialists Guide to selection and installation of top fixings for suspended ceilings. Top 4 reasons for ceiling collapse Incorrect selection of fixing Incorrect installation of fixing Additional load applied Insufficient number of fixings Guide downloadable from AIS Website and a 15 minute CPD is also available
  29. 29. Suspension Grid and Hangers Metal ceilings are suspended by rigid hangers Pre punched, avoids snipping and punching angle or using threaded rod Reduces installation time Majority of systems use primary suspension grids Improve installed accuracy to meet building module Reduces site installation time Can provide support for additional loads
  30. 30. Service integration - Ceilings Suspended ceilings need to provide service integration and accessibility. Integrated M&E products include: Luminaires Speakers Fire detection and control Grills / diffusers Chilled ceiling / chilled beams Apertures: Formed during manufacturing Reduces site waste Improves site efficiencies
  31. 31. Partitioning Deflection Essential when designing and installing partitioning systems to allow for suitable building slab deflection Dead and live loads can cause significant movement in some long- span floor systems A live load will almost certainly cause some degree of movement which impacts on the space between he floor and ceiling slab
  32. 32. Partitioning Deflection Range of deflection options ±25mm two part head track ±15mm one part head track Bespoke deflection option where greater than ± 25mm is specified Glass and Drywall integration Sharing single piece continuous deflection head across glass and solid elements Re-locatable
  33. 33. Partitioning - Drywall integration Seamless integration from glass into solid Recessed junctions provide clean joint Varying widths of drywall and glass Performance glass can be specified
  34. 34. Partitioning to Ceilings integration Integration with Metal ceilings No installation damage No long-term costs Feature Glass to Trim junctions Plasterboard ceilings Recessed head channel Range of deflection allowances Integration into Timber, etc
