Latest Case Study

The wall that divides the main foyer and the auditorium is designed to resemble a stage curtain. The wall is curved in plan and also in elevation.

Horbury Building Systems specified Lafarge contour board, which bends onto the frame, and used its own joinery shop to develop the fins that bolt on to give the final billowing effect.

The Horbury group of companies constructed partitions, suspended ceilings including SAS metal tiles, feature work to the auditorium and a Feature Wall measuring 24m wide x12m high curved on plan and in section as featured in this datasheet.
