Theatre, Event & Concert Halls

Our experience in this sector is demonstrated in our extensive library of case studies.

Important acoustic isolation considerations for the construction
of theatre, event and concert halls:

Sound transmission class (STC): The walls, ceilings, and floors of the hall should have a high STC rating, which measures the ability of the building’s envelope to reduce sound transmission. A higher STC rating means less sound transmission and better acoustic isolation.

Airborne sound: The hall’s construction should include measures to minimise the transfer of airborne sound, such as installing sound-absorbing materials, sealing all openings, and using double or triple glazing windows.

Impact sound: Impact sound can be a significant problem in multi-level halls. Measures to reduce impact sound include using a floating floor system, installing an acoustic underlayment or carpet, and isolating the walls with resilient channels.

HVAC noise: The hall’s air conditioning and ventilation systems can generate noise that can affect the sound quality. Careful attention should be paid to the HVAC system design and installation to minimise noise levels.

Room acoustics: The interior design of the hall, including its shape, materials, and layout, should be carefully considered to optimise the room acoustics for the sound system and the type of events that will be held in the hall.

Soundproofing doors: Doors are often overlooked as a significant source of sound transmission. Soundproofing doors should be installed with airtight seals and sound-dampening materials.

Internal acoustics: The internal acoustics of the hall, including the position of the speakers, microphones, and the sound-absorbing materials, should be optimised to reduce unwanted echoes and reflections.

Installation Services

Farrat Installation Services have supplied clients from a wide range of projects with the guarantee of complete isolation, overseen by our team of project managers and engineers with specialist experience in acoustic and vibration isolation.

If installation is not required from Farrat we will support project managers and contractors with onsite installation training.
