The Challenge

Luxembourg Based Fineline Design, headed up by Founder Denise Ryan contacted Vogl Ceilings to offer design assistance.

Vogl were commissioned to create Denise’s design for a ceiling that would allow for efficiency and comfort, while forming a harmonious atmospheric environment.

Our Solution

As a key partner of SDG, Vogl contacted us for supply support. As the project was operating on a very tight deadline, we we’re able to work our logistics and deliver the specified products on time. This allowed the Paramud project team to deliver the entire acoustics element within a two-week window.

Preformed elements from Vogl were selected to offer labour savings on site, and to allow for the fast-tracked program. The contractor was impressed by the quality and speed of install offered by the Vogl Falt Fix system. The Falt Fix elements are preformed corner connections, made from precision milled gypsum board. The secure connection is formed with the factory mounted doubled sided adhesive tape.

The Results

Vogl Falt Fix Advantages:

  • Space saving and cost-effective transport due to flat packaging
  • Offers incredible cost reductions when compared to forming stepped moulded components on site
  • The Falt Fix adhesive tapes adhere and develop maximum adhesion immediately
  • Precision milled for maximum reliability, no need for costly finishing work
