Roman Circle Ceiling Panels

Architectural ceiling panels that are approved for installation beneath fire sprinklers. Ceilume Thermoformed Ceiling Panels can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. This improves the appearance of a project by completely hiding the sprinklers, protects the sprinklers against discharge due to accidental impacts or tampering, and reduces the cost of construction by simplifying coordination of sprinkler and ceiling installation. When exposed to heat from a fire, the panels soften, sag, and drop out of the ceiling suspension system at a temperature less than that required to activate sprinklers; the sprinklers can then discharge and extinguish the fire. The panel are approved for drop-out use by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Factory Mutual... More

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore’s newest, brightest icon, is one of Asia’s leading destinations for leisure, entertainment and business. Even though the spectacular design is inspired by a house of cards, each building is strong and safe. The secret to that strength lies beneath the luxurious façade.

With the bar set so high, only the best would do when it came to specifying climate control, acoustic comfort and fire safety. And th... More
