01 product description
The Bellahoj swimming Stadium has proved to be an architectural inspiration which links the whole Bellahoj district and provides a valuable social benefit for the inhabitants. Arkitema architects have positioned the main entrance at the top of rising terraces, creating a meeting place and tranquil oasis near the dense city area. On entering, visitors experience a wonderful sense of transparency and lightness from the large glass walls which drop away to a view of the open air pools and park beyond.
Like all swimming pools, one problem can be the noise reflected off the hard surfaces and the water. Here, the architects have solved the problem by installing white Troldtekt ceiling panels to create comfortable acoustics for both swimmers and spectators. This design theme is continued in the changing-rooms, with their coloured clothes lockers and tiled surfaces, again featuring white Troldtekt ceilings to reduce noise.
Troldtekt panels are made from 100% natural materials; wood from Danish forests and cement produced by Aalborg Portland, Denmark. The structure of Troldtekt panels provides a basis for excellent sound absorption, and using Troldtekt ceilings will, therefore, reduce noise and provide optimal room acoustics. Troldtekt is available in a high number of combinations that vary according to surface structure, edge, installation system, colour, dimension and thickness.
