Back to CineTIMBER


When designing an auditorium, it is essential that the acoustic performance of the cinema screen is not compromised by rigid connection to any surrounding structures. Our CineTIMBER systems ensure that the most vital secondary structure of 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 stops unwanted noise intrusion.


The most innovative lightweight stadia seating isolation system in the market, CineTIMBER LITE uses high-compression acoustic washers to pre-compress the load bearing isolation strips achieving very low natural frequencies with almost no dead load.

CineTIMBER LITE acoustic washers deflect by over 10 mm during installation, forcing deflection in the CineTIMBER LITE isolation strips. This unlocks low frequency isolation performance while at the same time keeping live load deflection under control and reducing ‘bounce’, in common to lightweight isolated structures.

As the loading is balanced between the washer and isolation strip, the entire load range can be accommodated within the same detail, 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.
