1st Baldock Scouts hut gets an acoustic makeover.
We supplied our Melaflex Evo panels to the 1st Baldock Scouts group as they had contacted us with issues in their scout hut which also doubles as an event hire venue.
The space is a rectangular room with a flat plasterboard ceiling. This combined with the concrete walls and vinyl floor meant that the acoustics were not conducive for speech transmission and intelligibility. Leading to a working environment that was unpleasant for scout instructors and not conducive for events.
We used the room dimensions, layout and building materials to simulate the quantity and placement of acoustic treatment panels that would give the room an RT60 value less than 1s. This target RT60 time being a figure which allowed improvement of the acoustics in the room whilst remaining affordable. Mounting and placement instructions were provided to ensure that the panels provided maximum absorption and delivered the results that were expected.
Delivery was arranged to meet the clients time and space availability.
“The fitting was completed by three teams using individual towers in approximately 4 hours in total, and I will comment the panels were very easy to attach, and there have been no problems with the adhesive, which worked very well.
I have attached some images of the hall, before and after. I hope these will be of some use to you.
The Scouts have now returned to the hall, and the comments from the leaders are very positive. The sound levels have been noticeably reduced, and the echo is well dampened. General conversation is much easier, and the hall is generally a much more pleasant environment to work in.”
