The Total Area of stretch ceilings came up to 2050 square meters (80 stretch ceiling covers - squares, rectangles, triangles, trapezoids, ceilings with arches). DPS stretch ceilings have been installed at 2.20 to 2.95 meters above the floor. We have used the sealed materials with a mirror like reflection (L 5040 Magnetite) and satine (S 8009 Dallia), and the supporting structure was made with several houndred aluminum profiles (LS0044, LU41, LU01) - foil strip width 2,00 linear meter), a high reflection surface with mirror imitating effect (LU01 - 450,00 linear meters, LU041 - 540,00 l.m., LU04 - 825,00 l.m., LS044 - 300,00 l.m., AXL1  -165,00 l.m.).


The stretch ceilings have been installed on several different levels joined together with almost 600 lightings points as well as sound speakers, smoke detectors, cameras and ventilation strips. Further more we have installed around 80 revision points allowing constant access to the fire system and ventilation pipes (sizes 60x60 cm and 30x30 cm).
