The refurbishment of Cannon Street Station in London features SAS International’s Tubeline ceiling system. This was specified throughout the public concourse area, stretching onto the beginning of the platforms to provide a robust solution for this demanding environment.

Public concourse areas are semi-external spaces in which ceilings are exposed to an accumulation of dust and high levels of humidity. The chosen ceiling had to be a low maintenance system that retained its appearance over time.

SAS International’s Tubeline system was specified primarily because of its durability and its ability not to show dirt or dust. The Tubeline ceiling system provides an open area to allow air to pass through the ceiling plane, fulfilling the requirement for smoke and fire handling within the station.

Aluminium trays separate tubular panels with integrated luminaries and speakers. The nature of the ceiling allows for sign and CCTV camera poles to protrude between the tubes and to be fixed to the structural soffit without any direct interface with the ceiling.
