FabricWall Project – Editing Suites – BSkyB

The Brief BSkyB contacted FabricWall to provide acoustic design and installation services for a large project at their headquarters in Osterly, West London. As part of a larger renovation project of their editing facilities, the brief was to replace the existing acoustic panels across 5 audio editing suites.  Good acoustics in sound editing suites is imperative – so a key component of the brief was to provide a system that afforded the best sound absorption available.

FabricWall Project: Healthcare Acoustics – Custom Printed FabricWall

The Problem Working with the Penine Care Foundation Trust in Ashton-Under-Lyne, this latest project saw us design and install a custom printed FabricWall solution for an extremely noisy and echoey dining hall situated off a busy hospital day ward for the elderly. The room itself suffered from a high reverberation time due to the number of hard, non-absorptive surfaces in the room. Users of the room noted that even the drop of a fork on the floor would cause a loud uncomfortable echo. The Brief The brief for this project was to design and install an acoustic solution that substantially [...]

Cinema Spaces – Why Room Acoustics Matter

There are many types of cinema spaces, but the general rules of room acoustics remain the same whether it’s a home cinema, a new-build multiplex or a renovated theatre. The priority with any of these spaces is to create an environment where the right amount of sound is absorbed to stop disturbances from the crowd and equipment but not too much sound is absorbed that it deadens the effect of the music and voices. For many movies, the soundtrack and the spoken voice are just as important as the picture, which is why a room must be optimised to create [...]

Restaurant Acoustics – Why Noisy Restaurants are Putting us off our Food

“Nice restaurant, but too noisy”. Read any restaurant review and this is a line you wouldn’t be surprised to see. Many restaurants seem to be missing a trick when designing their dining spaces – everything else seems to be considered apart from one very important factor – noise. The modern day restaurant has become the epitome of minimalist living. Out are the carpets, curtains, tablecloths and plush cushions; in are brick walls, bare tables, stripped floors and metal counters. However unfashionable the textile-laden style of restaurant now seems, all the fabrics and soft furnishings were great for absorbing sound. The [...]
