Armstrong Ceilings is debuting its virtual reality (VR) ceiling installation in a classroom at the Education Buildings exhibition at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 21 and 22 November.

On the Armstrong stand (stand B9), users of the new VR experience will find themselves transported to a typical classroom setting which has not been acoustically treated. Amid the students, users will hear how typical classroom noise affects intelligibility and acoustic comfort before experiencing the acoustical transformation of the learning environment through the installation of a typical classroom ceiling system solution, using Ultima+ acoustic tiles, Blind Boxes, Axiom transitions and the Prelude 24 TLS suspension system.

The VR experience is designed to enable specifiers to experience how to create a better and more sustainable learning environment in new build or refurbishment projects. Armstrong will also demonstrate its online selector tool which advises specifiers on the wellbeing requirements for different school rooms, including auditoriums, classrooms, gyms, cafes and corridors.
