We hear all the time how important acoustic treatment is for our studios, and rightly so. It helps us get the most out of our space, while greatly enhancing the recording and listening experience.
However, acoustic treatment is for much more than the studio, its effectiveness applies to any space, especially when the truest sound possible is of the utmost importance.
Service Sound was approached by Woodfield School in Kingsbury, a school they had worked with previously, having installed their PA systems. The project they had been given this time around presented a whole new challenge, it was in the gym.
For Woodfield, with a high intake of autistic students, suppressing the loud audio that quickly builds up in rooms with reflective, hard surfaces became a necessity.
In a room with a wall almost entirely consisting of a window, it was the domed ceiling that could only be fully treated realistically.
Service Sound used StudioPANEL Single Acoustic Panels 1200 x 600 x 25mm and Wall Clip / Impalers by Studiospares to get the job done. The lightweight design of the panels made them perfect for the situation and combined with the robustness of the impalers, they were comfortably attached to the ceiling.
It took two teams and one week to install, and not only did it look great from a visual standpoint, but the acoustic change it gave the room was a huge success. What was once a mean mid-band RT of 3.7 seconds, had been brought right down to a very impressive 2.3 seconds. For the students using this gym, it has made all the difference.
