Acoustic Sports Wall
The Dynamik Acoustic Sports Wall can ensure you meet current design requirements as set out by Building Regulations (within Building Bulletin 93) and current Sport England guidance with regard to sound absorption. It can be combined with matching solid wall boards in a range of colours that complement the sports floor to give you a complete solution for the internal finishes of the sports hall and create an environment that is aesthetically pleasing.
For more information on the latest regulations and the benefits of installing acoustic walling then please read our guidance page here.
Principle Benefits of Acoustic Sports Wall
Acoustic properties which create an environment that is more comfortable for the users of the hall by reducing the mid-frequency reverberation times. Research confirms that poor acoustic design has a detrimental effect upon pupil’s academic performance and teacher’s vocal health.
The aesthetics of the sports hall will be improved through the use of attractive solid and perforated panels installed in your choice of size.
Potential savings in both construction time and cost can be achieved since the panels are an integral part of the hall’s construction and combine acoustic qualities.
Features of Dynamik Acoustic Sports Wall
Assist in Meeting Building Regulation Requirements
Building Bulletin 93 sets out the acoustic requirements for various sports areas which should now be complied with. Sport England and the Department of Education – Education Funding Authority (EFA) expect full compliance.
Acoustic Absorption Coefficient
Panels are a Class C sound absorber which is above the Class D level typically specified.
The system is quick and easy to install with hidden clips that provide a 7mm regular gap between adjoining boards.
Shock Absorbing and Indentation Resistant
Panels are constructed from 15mm birch plywood, providing a high degree of shock absorption and indentation resistance, including that imposed by cricket and hockey balls.
Panels are factory finished and include a surface that is resistant to scratching and are totally maintenance free.
To European Class D (National Class 3) as standard but can be rated to European Class C (National Class 1) for a premium to satisfy the fire regulation requirements for a particular area.
Choice of Colours
Panels are available in a choice of 19 standard colours but can be manufactured in any RAL colour for a small premium.
Eliminates the need for block work or other wet finishes – provides for a fast and efficient installation.
The technical specification of the Dynamik Acoustic Sports Wall is described below. These can be combined with matching solid panels of similar dimensions.
Standard Panel Sizes
2,450mm length by 600mm height and 15mm depth. Alternative Panel Sizes – available in a lengths of 1,225mm and heights of 1,200mm, 400mm or 300mm.
11.3 kg/m2 – Non-perforated panel / 9.5 kg/m2 – Perforated panel.
Acoustic Panel Perforations
Precision cut 8mm perforations with a 16mm aligned spacing.
Each panel has pre-routed edges to allow for hidden fixings with a 7mm gap. A special bracket is supplied for this purpose. The panels can be fitted to vertical beams either timber or metal at 491mm centres below 2.2m and at 614mm centres above 2.2m.
A black acoustic textile is fitted in front of the vertical beams, this effectively hides the gap between the panels and makes the black metal brackets appear to be ‘invisible’.
To achieve the sound absorption a mineral wool may need to be installed between the vertical beams this will be recommended by an acoustician.
The Acoustic & Sports Wall panels can be finished in any RAL colour or a range of wood effect finishes including:
French Smoked Oak
