Suffolk One – All Quiet In The Library
A critical design factor of this striking oak pod college library was the need for a high performance acoustic barrier which could form its complex shape.
The internal structure built around a concrete suspended plinth and large scale steel girder frame, was lined with Acoustiblok’s thin and flexible membrane to ensure a quiet room for students.
TMJ Interiors of Suffolk responsible for the detail design and build of the pod wall at the Ipswich sixth form college, worked with Acoustiblok’s acousticians to produce a design (see illustration below) which, when tested as a flat section, achieved a first time Rw50dB rating above the required levels.
“We were so pleased with Acoustiblok, not just with the amazing product but with all the help and advice we received.
We would have absolutely no problem recommending it to any of our clients.”
