Nevill Long has helped to supply a hospital extension in Trinidad, West Indies with 12,000m2 of ceiling tiles for a contract that has proved to be one of their most ambitious projects to date.

AMF’s mineral wool tiles have been used throughout the 18-storey extension to the San Fernando Teaching Hospital. Thermatex Aquatec tiles were specially produced to the imperial-size specification of 610mm x 610mm for the project. The tiles are moisture resistant up to 100% RH so even with permanently high humidity and temperatures between 0 and 40°C the acoustic panel is inherently stable at all times. Those used at San Fernando were also specially treated with AMF’s anti-microbial Hygena finish to resist bacteria and fungi.

Nevill Long managing director Dave Bonner said: “The team is now working on another project of a similar size in the south of the islands.”
