Hotel guests can relax under a Hunter Douglas ceiling

A new £4.5 million hotel spa features a dramatic £60,000 timber roof ceiling, manufactured by leading architectural products manufacturer Hunter Douglas.

The state-of-the-art Clubspa and Evergreen Spa at Kenwick Park Hotel in Louth, Lincolnshire, opened in July 2016, replacing a facility that had been destroyed by fire.

The building features a 20-metre indoor swimming pool complete with 600m2 Hunter Douglas 111m linear open solid wood ceiling system that was specified by Nottingham-based Franklin Ellis Architects, which undertook the interior design.

Specified in African Ayous on a corrosion-resistant suspension system, the exterior grade multi-faceted ceiling, which was specified with a 19mm gap, was complex in design and installation due to the shape of the triangular openings that were formed by the roof structure, into which the solid wood ceiling had to be installed.

The wood panels are finished on all sides with a water-based varnish, and they are impregnated with Magma Firestop, which achieves Class ‘0’ BS476 fire rating. They also have Hunter Douglas’s standard non-woven acoustic fleece bonded to the back.
