Back to CineSTEEL


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.

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 LITE

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.

The CineSTEEL LITE wide load range allows it to be used in a variety of lightweight structures, supporting plywood and plasterboard stadia without the requirement for precise load capacity/isolation performance balancing calculations.

The same acoustic isolation strip type can be used throughout the whole raked seating structure, enabling delivery from stock and simple installation.

We offer performance warranties up to 10 years demonstrating both expertise and confidence.

The longest in the industry.
