When designing an auditorium, it is critical that the acoustic performance of the cinema screen is not compromised by rigid connection to any surrounding structures.
Most important secondary structure in a cinema
Our CineSTEEL systems ensure that the most important secondary structure in a cinema, the raked seating, is kept totally independent of the main structure, the structural floor slab and any adjacent screens. This keeps cinema sound where it belongs and prevents unwanted noise intrusion.
CineSTEEL is primarily intended for use with concrete stadia. It is widely compatible with a variety of steel frame type and baseplate/bolt combinations and will keep sound constrained to its source in auditoriums of all shapes and sizes.
Our 100% recycled CineSTEEL NEO raked seating isolation system can be used without precise acoustic performance calculations. The sheets can be cut to size and drilled on site, facilitating very fast delivery and installation.
Designed for lightweight cold-rolled and SFS structures which impose line loading, CineSTEEL LITE utilises high-strain expanded polyeurethane strips to extract maximum isolation performance despite low dynamic mass in the structure.
Our most frequently specified grade of raked seating isolation suffers no compromises from low mass or high stiffness isolators to achieve the highest ratio of acoustic isolation performance vs. price in the CineSTEEL range.
Designed specifically for 4DX auditoria, CineSTEEL MAX incorporates high damping isolators to control and constrain vibration while still providing exceptionally high sound insulation.
We offer performance warranties up to 15 years demonstrating both expertise and confidence.
The longest in the industry.
All CineSTEEL grades use acoustic isolators that are manufactured under an ISO 9001:2021 accredited quality management system. Our performance test data is supplied from our in-house laboratory, which is regularly checked and referenced with UKAS accredited, independent laboratories.
Special care has also been taken to consider buildability, reliability and robustness in each design to ensure that both the installers and the operator’s key interests are upheld – such as acoustic performance, longevity and lifecycle cost. We work regularly with the most respected cinema brands and project teams currently leading the market, including Cineworld, VOX, VUE, REEL, Odeon and Empire.
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.
