Hunter Douglas, the global architectural products manufacturer, has published its latest comprehensive guide to ceilings and walls, covering its entire metal, wood and felt ranges. The hardback, 394-page Commercial Ceilings & Walls Product Guide 2018/2019 is aimed at architects, designers and specifiers, and provides technical data, colour finishes, material characteristics, applications and acoustic performance data in easy-to-read form. Colourful photographs of the systems in-situ show how they have been implemented on schemes across the world.

Divided into chapters, the guide details the Hunter Douglas range of interior, exterior and sports ceilings, and wall systems. It includes its newest product, the Heartfelt felt ceiling and wall system, which has incredible acoustic performance and stunning aesthetic appearance. Heartfelt scooped the Red Dot award 2017, a prestigious international design prize for product design, and has since introduced a new earth tones colour palette to complement the five greys, black and white.

Highlighting its wood collection, the manufacturer showcases its wide selection of solid wood, veneered wood and natural-looking wood prints in linear, grill, tiles, topline and panel form, while the 191 pages of the guide dedicated to Hunter Douglas’s full choice of metal ceilings demonstrate their sheer versatility in multiple applications and settings.

The guide also highlights the exterior range, which have been specified on prominent developments across the globe, including Gdansk Lech Wałesa Airport, Poland; Philips High Tech Campus, Eindhoven, the Netherlands; and the Reebok World Headquarters, Canton, Massachusetts, USA.  Most of the interior products have a solid wood, veneered wood or metal version adapted for exterior use, which are capable of withstanding wind loads and humidity. It means that architects and designers are able to continue the interior ceiling design on the outside of the building.

A resources section focuses on BIM, perforation patterns, acoustic test results and sustainability.

David Harris, general manager at Hunter Douglas said: 'This new guide is our most comprehensive yet and we hope it will inspire architects, designers and specifiers to see how our huge range of products can help them to achieve the aesthetic they are seeking with world-class products, backed up by our team’s knowledge and expertise.'
