Claro ceiling at grand atrium entrance to Ford Hall inside Rogers Place

From a crushing cross check into the boards to an electrifying guitar solo, sports fans and concert-goers alike are reveling in the newly built Rogers Place in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. Inside the facility, Decoustics® Claro® Ceilencio® ceiling system is the highlight of the Ford Hall grand atrium entrance. Close to 1,200 pre-curved panels of varying shapes and sizes were custom engineered and manufactured to add a dynamic finishing effect to this complex project covering almost 33,000 square feet. Constructed from absorptive material with high quality and precision, Decoustics® Claro® panels enhance the acoustics inside the crowded concourse, while the fluid shape of the curved and sloping ceiling, along with the incorporation of over 300 light fixtures of varying diameters will leave a lasting impression on the visitors of this spectacular space.
