Actors Studio Soundproofing – Acoustic Sound Curtains
All Noise Control received a call from the owner of an acting studio in California. The studio was experiencing some noise control issues. The studio had a large room with lofty ceilings that had an immense amount of reverberation, also known as echoing. At the same time, they wanted to divide their room with a product that can block noise from the other side as well as look good doing it. We then offered our Acoustic Curtain for dividing the room in combination with our Acoustic Wall Panels for the rest of the walls.
Our Acoustic Curtain needed to block noise AND absorb noise at the same time. We have a simple solution. Our STC 17 liner in the middle of the curtain will block the noise. This made the curtain thick and heavy (what any great curtain consists of). To absorb the noise, we added more width to the curtain. Doing this gives the curtain noise absorption capability. For example, if we have an 11-foot-wide opening, we will create a curtain 13’ wide and squeeze it into our 11-foot track system. This will give the curtain soft folds while it is completely drawn and will absorb the sound waves hitting it. The Acting Studio couldn’t be happier with their new curtain divider.
The Wall Panels on either side of the room was the cherry on top! The curtain helped immensely with the reverberation, but the studio’s concrete walls were not helping. We constructed the perfect size wall panels for the room’s measurements. Bordering the room with wall panels finished the job and echo became a thing of the past. The show must go on!!
