Spa Renovation


A Cost effective, luxurious ceiling solution

The fabric of the building, particularly the roof space, was deteriorating due to the environment of the spa. The humidity and high temperatures combined with corrosive chemicals was attacking some of the materials used in the original construction and the challenge was to address this with a cost-effective, long lasting ceiling solution that would deliver a luxurious feel enhancing the Fitness & Leisure Club and the Hydrotherapy Spa offering.

We are extremely pleased with the amazing ceilings... such beautifully light spaces and we are so impressed with the flawless matt finish that will never need decorating. The ceilings have helped create the luxurious ambience we were striving for as well as providing the all important vapour barrier required. Your team who were really easy to work with took the time to understand our needs and the end result is great for which I thank you.

State-of-the-art Barrisol stretched ceiling

Clarke Infinity have extensive technical knowledge enabling them to design and implement state-of-the-art solutions choosing the right products to best fit the client’s needs. Clarke Infinity recommended a Barrisol stretched ceiling to address the issues created by the combination of humidity and chemicals used at the pool and spa.

The Barrisol ceiling solution eliminated the problem of the deteriorating building by creating a vapour barrier between the spa and the roof space. Clarke’s recommendation was based in the knowledge that the Barrisol ceiling would create a better aesthetic finish than could be achieved with other materials.

The stretched fabric was quick to install and was an excellent cost-effective option due to very low ongoing costs and as it is extremely durable with no decorating required. The finish is to an extremely high standard with some of the ceiling enhance by linear perimeter lighting delivering an ultimate clean and luxurious finish.
