While our primary instinct may be to judge interior architecture purely in visual terms, what is equally important in how we perceive a space is the aural landscape. Effective acoustic management will make a space feel calmer and more relaxing. From large theatre halls to offices, classrooms, hotel receptions and private residences the use of hard sound reflective surfaces such as glass, wood and stone can cause excessive sound reverberation which leads to unpleasant noise levels. The correct control of sound can create a calmer and more pleasant environment.

The new acoustic plaster system from manufacturer Armourcoat offers a clean and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces.

Comprised of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer, the Armourcoat acoustic plaster system offers an elegant marble based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface. The zero VOC system, which consists of 80% recycled material, achieves class 0 fire rating and a class A Noise Reduction Coefficient rating.

An array of global projects for an impressive list of international blue chip clients in the residential, hospitality and boutique retail sectors have established Armourcoat as a leading supplier of high quality surface finishes. All products in the range are designed, manufactured and installed by Armourcoat.

The natural mineral system of Armourcoat acoustic plaster contains no VOCs and is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew. It comprises mineral wood panels with 75% post-consumer recycled content.

The factory prepared base panels are manufactured ready for immediate installation and can provide up to 200m2 in a continuous surface without joints, all with a seamless finish and exceptional acoustic performance. They achieve a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) rating A-C and Fire rating Class 0 BS 476 part 6&7.Test guidelines for type A mounting, NRC ratings range from 0.8, class C (30mm system) to 0.9, class A (50mm system). The Armourcoat acoustic plaster system has been tested by the University of Southampton (SVR Consulting) following BS EN 354:2003 Airbourne sound absorption measured in a reverberation chamber.
