CineTIMBER LITE is one of the most innovative and lightweight stadia seating isolation systems in the market. It takes advantage of high-deflection acoustic washers that pre-compress the load bearing isolation strips to achieve very low natural frequencies with almost no dead load.

This pre-compression means that an evenly distributed load is presented to the CineTIMBER LITE isolation strips, allowing the same strips to be used for all load cases.

Key Features

ƒn @Operating Load:  10 Hz                Isolator Thickness: 25 mm

ƒn @Dead Load:  14 Hz                        Isolator Type: Standard Strip

Max Pressure: 0.05 kN/mm2                 Warranty: up to 10 Years

Max Live Load:  4x 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.
