Resonics was contacted by Sky to provide acoustic walling across five of their editing suites at its headquarters in Osterly, West London. The brief had to meet two fundamental criteria: a feature wall that provided aesthetic appeal, but which wasn’t too distracting for staff, and one which provided supreme sound absorption.
For Class A sound absorption in a seamless design integrated into a studio environment, our Fabric Wall solution is hands down the ideal solution. Coming in a 50mm depth of acoustic core, the system offers the highest level of sound absorption on the market – with over 90% absorptive capabilities.
An unobtrusive and seamless system it is perfect for high end studios such as Sky’s. The agreed solution included striped tones of Sky’s branding colours for the feature wall, and a subtle grey for the editing wall to match the predominant colours in the rest of the room.
The fabrics chosen for the walls were from a British manufacturer called Moon. Similar in make-up to Vescom Lani and Kvadrat Divina, Moon’s Melton II is an acoustically breathable 100% Wool fabric. Melton II was chosen for its quality and the fact that it matched the existing furniture in the room.
FabricWall’s project at BskyB is one of the largest and most striking projects we have undertaken. Within an incredibly short timescale, we were able to install a high quality and beautiful solution that provides optimal sound absorption in space where acoustic clarity is vital.
