SAS International provides a unique perforated metal ceiling for Manchester Airport’s Terminal 1 retail refurbishment

SAS International’s System 200 metal ceiling, featuring a bespoke perforated pattern, was specified at the recent Manchester Airport Terminal 1 retail refurbishment.

SAS International worked closely with Aedas Architects on this project. Dawn Wadsworth, Associate Director and lead architect on this scheme comments; “Together with Milligan Retail, Aedas designed a metal ceiling tile with a perforated lace work pattern. The design and specification of the tile was crucial to the overall effect. Each 900mm square tile has an identical pattern on it which was designed so that when laid next to each other they form a free flowing pattern that weaves across the ceiling. This pattern is further enhanced by being backlit with blue lighting.

“SAS International was able to assist with this unique specification, calculating the weight allowance and parameters required for the product. Taking our design aspiration they worked with the contractor to create a unique product that fully fulfilled our brief.”

A strict timeline had to be adhered to as the busy Manchester terminal was fully occupied and operational throughout the construction period, so the work had to be done in phases, and in short night-time slots.

Dawn Wadsworth continues; “SAS International facilitated the creation of this bespoke product with a unique effect. We would definitely recommend SAS International for future projects; the service they provided was extremely responsive to our requirements.”

Aedas Architects specified over 1,000 sqm of SAS International System 200 for the ceiling design. SAS System 200 is a hook-on metal ceiling tile system that provides a functional and durable solution for airports. The practical nature of its structure allows ease of construction and maintenance.

Supported from a concealed J-bar suspension rail, 900mm square tiles were specified for the project to meet the design brief.

System 200 can be designed to meet individual project requirements as tiles are available in square, rectangular and trapezoidal form.

The retail component for Terminal 1 at Manchester Airport provides a new restaurant and dining experience for travelling public. Overlooking the airfield, it offers a range of bars, cafes and restaurants and is one of the UK’s largest airside shopping complexes. The project is part of a wider development of Manchester Airport’s three terminals, where SAS metal ceilings are installed throughout.
