Acoustic ceiling tiles
Capco is the sole stockist and distributor of Daiken mineral-fibre acoustic ceiling tiles. This product offers diverse and attractive surface patterns, such as the timeless non-directional fissured pattern.
One of the notable projects where Daiken mineral-fibre acoustic ceiling tiles were installed was the King Shaka International Airport in Durban. The Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA) and Bambanani Joint Venture specified these products due to their quality and durability.
Barry Gould, managing director of Capco, also emphasized that the products were specified due to their ease of use and flexibility. “Although the ceiling systems were developed to satisfy the requirements of the designer, the systems also cater for the practical on-site problems faced by the installer. Another reason why these products were specified was the fact that Daiken mineral-fibre acoustic tiles have a 99% relative humidity resistance at 50°C and carry a 10-year guarantee against sagging. This also means they can be used in non-air-conditioned areas,” said Gould.
Capco’s team was able to create unique curved designs as well as “island” designs where independent islands appear to float from the ceiling.
