Sound quality down to a fine art

October Gallery, the cutting-edge contemporary art space in Bloomsbury London, recently appointed acoustic consultants, Sandy Brown Associates, to advise on improvements to the sound insulation and room acoustics. Once a Victorian school house, the October Gallery was suffering from a lot of reverberation noise due to the wooden flooring and sound travelling though the ceilings. Panarc Interior Solutions installed 150m2 of the Rockfon Mono Acoustic ceiling system using an MF framework, with 1 layer of 15mm soundbloc board; this provided additional sound insulation value to reduce noise transfer between the floors. The elegant seamless acoustic ceiling creates a modern look ideally suited for the contemporary art gallery. Since the installation of the new ceiling, the room acoustics in the gallery have been re-recorded and the reverberation times have reduced by 56 per cent in the 500Hz and 1KHz octave bands.
