CineSTEEL NEO raked seating isolation systems can be used without precise design calculations. Made from 100% recycled/recyclable rubber, CineSTEEL NEO sheets can be cut to size and drilled on site, facilitating very fast delivery and installation.

High levels of both sound insulation and load bearing capacity can be achieved thanks to the engineered cork filler of the CineSTEEL NEO isolation material, however there are compromises in isolation performance at the lowest frequencies.

Max Live Load:  2x Dead Load

CineSTEEL NEO is based on a hot-rolled steel frame supporting up to 150 mm concrete stadia, however unlike higher-performing grades, does not require load specific calculations and multiple isolator specifications due to the variable stiffness response provided from the cork-filled elastomer.

The higher overall stiffness does result in isolation performance compromises at the very lowest frequencies, however there are still many applications for CineSTEEL NEO within commercial cinemas.

Ordering from Farrat

CineSTEEL NEO Acoustic Isolators

  • Product Code: 2CS-N-01
  • Measure: Isolation Sheets are 1000 x 1000 x 20 mm.
    • Sheets should be cut to size ≥ baseplate area.


CineSTEEL NEO Acoustic Bush

  • Product Code: 2CS-N-16/20/24
  • Measure: Acoustic Bushes are available for M16, M20 and M24 fixings.
    • All fixings through isolators should incorporate an acoustic bush.
    • Only one side of the fixing requires acoustic bushes (one bush per bolt).
    • Fixings to S.E. Spec (typically ×4 per connection).
    • Hole for acoustic bush = bolt diameter + 7 mm.
