Walnut, oak, wood: In order to create a pleasant atmosphere, the shopping mall Ruhr-Park in Bochum scores with the charisma of natural material for the central entrance area and the lounge areas on the last floor. The entrance areas as well as the cinema center itself are furnished in a wood look.
Both areas have to withstand strong mechanical load due to the expected high visitor frequencies. The internal cinema area as escape route also has to comply with the classification A2-s1, d0 according to DIN EN 13501-1. Thus, only non-combustible materials are suitable for the wall and ceiling linings.
Therefore, the builder MFI Immobilien Marketing GmbH chose DESIGNBOARD 230 LAMINATE with oak decor for all coverings of stairs, escalators, and staircases including handrails. Knauf Design also produced the paneling of the cinema box office out of non-combustible composite elements.
In the entrance area, MFI used DESIGNBOARD 230 WOOD with walnut veneer. The processors fixed the decorative panels with the help of split battens. The ceiling was installed using the DESIGNBOARD FIX system.
Thus, the wall as well as the archway above the entrance were lined with non-combustible decorative boards combining the robust surface classified A2-S1, d0 with soft wood decor so that guests and moviegoers feel at home right away in every aspect.
