Knauf AMF Ceilings touch down at Bristol Airport

Knauf AMF Ceilings Ltd

An £8m administrative hub at Bristol Airport has a bespoke Knauf AMF ceiling system fitted throughout.

However, these two factors require careful acoustic consideration. The result is a series of randomly arranged, hexagonal suspended rafts that provide acoustic function, and a strong visual statement.”
