A comprehensive list of Oscar Acoustics' UK Acoustic Installations
Oscar Acoustics has undertaken a wide variety of acoustic projects, listed below are just some of these projects.
The importance of getting the acoustics right in schools. A range of environmentally friendly acoustic decorative coatings to control noise reverberation.
Sports hall acoustics are typically reverberant due to a combination of large areas of hard block walls, corrugated steel ceilings and wood floors. To control a sports halls acoustics a large amount of acoustically absorptive material has to be applied around the hall. Clearly a spray-on material has a distinct advantage over acoustic panels in this situation.
BT Groups, 19th Century Faraday Building in the City of London received a major refurbishment in 2005. The main contractors were looking for a way in which they could refurbish the old existing concrete soffit whilst solving the office acoustic issues.
A visually beautiful restaurant may not be a pleasurable place to spend time due to poor restaurant acoustics. Hard flat surfaces such as wooden floors and plastered walls reflect sound thereby increasing and amplifying noise levels within the space.
The swimming pool acoustic design calculations demonstrated there would be a problem with speech audibility in the pool area due to high levels of noise reverberation. Instructors of swimming lessons would find teaching very difficult and the serious problem existed of misunderstanding the Public Address system announcements and instructions in the event of an emergency.
SonaSpray and SoundBlox are perfect for industrial noise control and soundproofing. Absorbing sound instead of reflecting it around the space, reducing reverberation times and therefore overall noise levels.
Space saving high performance Sound-proofing system for ceilings with as little as 6mm ceiling height loss; ideal for sound-proofing - London
Oscar Iso-Mount – the easy to install, space saving isolation hanger, ideal for soundproofing basement ceilings. Lose only a few millimetres ceiling height but with the high performance of far deeper systems.
Why thousands of properties worldwide could benefit from using the space saving Oscar Iso-Mount noise reduction ceiling. High performance isolated ceiling with as little as 6mm ceiling height loss.
Oscar Acoustics' flag ship super smooth acoustic plaster used on Grand Designs.
Meeting Room Acoustics are especially important to promote productivity and minimise stress levels. Acoustic plasters and panels to control sound and make speech & music clearer.
The House of Blues is the brainchild of Isaac Tigrett, an entrepreneur who launched his successful career with the opening of the first Hard Rock Café in London at the age of twenty two.
In many churches, poor church acoustics are an issue. With hard walls, stone or tiled floors and bare wooden seating, these are normally very reverberant spaces. All these coupled with high ceilings and strange shapes can make for terrible church acoustics.
SonaSpray is the ideal treatment for warehouse's solving acoustics, rain noise and thermal control in one application. For new build, Sound Blocks are also a great option.
Celbar environmentally friendly insulation is a blend of recycled specially prepared cellulose fibres, organic in nature and treated to make it fire retardant to Class 0 (top classification).
Acoustic enclosures made easily using acoustic masonry blocks.
Plantrooms, factories, roadways. A great alternative to traditional encloseures.
Contolling noise within factories doesn't have to be difficult. Installation of SonaSpray or SoundBlox is the easy way to control reverberation and reduce overall noise levels.
SonaSpray is manufactured from non-hazardous recycled material and is ideal for replacing asbestos to control acoustics or thermally insulate.
Stadium acoustics due to the sheer size of the acoustic installation require economical acoustic solutions. With more and more stadiums needing to host such events as music concerts and the like to increase revenue, the stadiums acoustics are very important.
The home of time itself. The Royal Observatory is one of the most important historic scientific sites in the world. Founded by Charles II in 1675 it is known throughout the world as being the official starting point for each new day, year and millennium.
During the recent refurbishment of The Windsor Hall at the Bournemouth International Centre, improved auditorium building acoustics was a major requirement.
To create the perfect night clubbing experience optimum club acoustics is paramount. Without correct club acoustics, even the most expensively furnished club may not be an enjoyable place to spend an evening.
State of the art sound proofing products for the reduction of noise transfer through walls and ceilings. Example given - Gillingham Football Stadium Bar/Club & Conference Suite
When BT Groups, 19th Century Faraday Building in the City of London received a major refurbishment the main contractor was looking for a decorative coating that would refurbish the old existing concrete soffit using a single coat.
Emlyn Hughes House is designed to provide drama both from the exterior and interior. The Gateway Project was intended to represent the history of the town by resembling a submarine, the towns primary industry.
The new building has been described as an architectural gem. Designed by the creators of the London Eye, Marks Barfield Architects, and featuring stunning materials and spaces, The Lightbox is intended to appeal to young and old alike.
Recording studio acoustics are critical to the quality of sound. Too much noise reverberation ie reflected noise can distort recorded or transmitted presentations as microphones may pick up a sound more than once with a delay in between.
The opening of the Gurdwara, Sikh Temple, was the culmination of many years of dedicated effort by the Sri Guru Singh Sabha community based in Southall, London.
Leicester Performing Arts Centre, a new theatre development in Leicester was awarded a £12m grant by Arts Council England.
The new centre, has replaced the city's Haymarket and Phoenix venues.
