Swimming Pool Acoustics
The £28 million redevelopment of Moberly Sports Centre features the first newly built swimming pool in Westminster since the Queen Mother Sports Centre opened in 1981.
The new state-of-the-art leisure facilities include a six-lane, 25m swimming pool with a dedicated learner pool, spa-suana, gym, dance studio and multi-use sports hall.
As a key feature for the swimming pool development, Barrisol Welch installed an acoustic ceiling system to enhance the sound quality within the pool hall whilst also creating a bright and open space.
Acoustic Ceiling System
The project brief and reason for this installation was simple. Our client wanted the performance benefits of a Barrisol Acoustic Ceiling for the large pool hall environment.
Acoustics in swimming pool environments can be a real design challenge, thanks to their size and the noise reverberation from tiled surfaces.
Introducing a Barrisol Stretch Ceiling with acoustic properties, into large acoustically challenging spaces such as a swimming pool, will provide outstanding audible results without having to compromise on the final aesthetics of the space.
We installed the Barrisol Star Track Profile BS350/01 for the perimeter of the stretch ceilings and used the BS350/16 separator profile to join the ceilings together. We started by fixing these aluminium tracks with suitable bracing to the clients exisiting ceiling structure.
Next we installed 400m2 of Barrisol A15 Nanoperf Acoustic in the Blanc Extramat 01050 finish, along with PVC reinforcing rings so that the client could pass suspension rods through the ceiling, for the ventilation air socks.
