When it is time to unwind and enjoy social and entertainment activities, it is important that the environment around you is acoustically controlled. Whether it is sitting down to a meal or catching up with friends, being able to relax and enjoy a conversation is paramount.Operable walls can provide different options at different times for the same venue, through effective space separation and controlling reverberation levels.
Bildspec Operable Walls have an important part to play in improving the acoustic environment. They are often used to divide areas in clubs or community spaces needing to maximise their patronage at certain times in the day, as well as provide privacy when needed. Bildspec have installed our operable walls into many locations e.g. Katoomba RSL, Brisbane Slavic Church, Kangaroo St Community Centre, St Andrews Church, St Claire Recreation and Leisure Centre, St Aiden’s Anglican Church, Catalina’s Club at Batemans bay, and many more.
Our Operable walls:
• are adaptable to allow the space to accommodate small or large groups;
• provide the opportunity to create multiple function rooms at a single venue;
• are designed to reduce sound transmission at various frequencies to create an area that meets the end user’s needs;
• can enhance the aesthetic of the space through careful selection of attractive finishes;
• are very robust and stand the test of time in high usage areas.
Furthermore, various face finishes used on the surface of each operable wall can improve the NRC (the measure of sound absorption or Noise Reduction Coefficient)/reverberation acoustic quality of the space through sound absorption. Careful consideration should be given to choosing face finishes which assist in absorbing the frequencies of speech, referred to as articulate speech frequencies. This can be discussed with your acoustic consultant on the project, to get the desired acoustic outcome.
Larger format operable walls, walls meeting at 90 degrees, or walls stacking a long distance away from where they need to be setup, are all common requirements of leisure-based venue spaces – our operable walls accommodate all these needs with ease. Furthermore, many of our walls have to satisfy strict building code requirements for egress and disability codes, as deemed necessary by the building certifier. From the simple to the complex, Bildspec are here to help you get the outcome you are looking for.
Bildspec have transformed many leisure and community spaces to give these venues the option to maximise their functionality, appeal and therefore their profitability. We look forward to helping you with your next project, from consultation on the initial design stage, through to hand over and training with the end-user floor staff.
