The H3sixty Business Centre development for Kristal Holding Co WLL, Bahrain uses SAS130 metal ceiling solution to provide a sophisticated, design-led finish which encompasses high level acoustic performance qualities.

Situated in the prestigious Bahrain Financial Harbour development the H3sixty building provides a stylish and elegant commercial environment. Modern office design requires flexibility ensuring there is the correct balance of acoustic absorption and attenuation reducing background noise to increase concentration whilst enabling conversation. The SAS130 metal ceiling solution provides tenants with high levels of room to room acoustic privacy of up to 45dB.

The function and aesthetic look of the interior finish plays an integral part in presenting a corporate identity and providing a comfortable work environment. The SAS130 ceiling solution features Alugrid Q suspension which provides a unique partition head fixing facility which offers unrivalled flexibility for partition layout and space planning which is of paramount important for satisfying the need for future tenant demands.

An occupant’s use of commercial buildings is rarely static. Companies grow and contract in size and employ increasingly sophisticated communication and IT systems. Such changes can place different demands on the interior finishes in a working environment. Therefore a flexible solution which allows for partitioning to be moved with ease with a change of tenant is highly desirable especially in the fast moving financial world.

This metal ceiling solution from SAS has a minimum 25-year product life expectancy. Metal solutions are recyclable and can count towards LEED environmental credits or Estimada’s Pearl Rating System.
