FIBREfon Pontypridd School Rejuvination


The Pontypridd Rejuvination Project

The development saw the much needed rejuvenation of a building into twenty-two contemporary apartments with concierge, gym, bike shed and parking. The building avoided full demolition due to some sections having listed status, developers also managed to retain many of the schools beautiful features such as the original windows and stairways.

FIBREfon & HEXATHERM Sound and Thermal Solution Specified


2500m2 of FIBREfon 28C and 800m2 of HEXATHERM XFLOOR were specified and installed on the project to meet the demand for a high compressive strength acoustic and thermal solution for the concrete floors.



Both boards are highly regarded for their ability to withstand imposed loads, this is of significant value in domestic environments that are required to withstand high levels of footfall and heavy household appliances. FIBREfon 28c boards consist of a chipboard with a high performance wood fibre resilient layer to deliver excellent acoustic properties, ensuring optimum working and living conditions for current and future occupants.
