Soundproofing community halls and places of worship such as churches is vital, as anyone who's delivered a speech or sermon, or sung in one, will tell you. Community halls, churches and other places of worship tend to be large, open areas with hard, acoustically reflective surfaces. This can result in speech and song being subject to lots of echo and reverberation.
It can spoil performances and seriously effect the intelligibility of speech in meetings, mass, prayer and fetes, among other events.
Soundproofing in places of worship and community halls is affected by the type of building, as they all have their own requirements. Sometimes, it may be necessary to ‘tune’ the room, depending on how it's used. Recommended for soundproofing churches, community halls and places of worship is the Sonata range of products.
Sonata are versatile and high-performance products. Allied with the experience and knowledge of the qualified acoustic technical team at Sound Reduction Systems Ltd (SRS), they can be a major help when soundproofing places of worship and community halls.
Sonata acoustic panels for community halls and churches
When soundproofing community halls, churches or other places of worship, Sonata Aurio offers an excellent application for walls and ceilings. It can be installed cleanly and quickly with our recommended adhesive. Sonata Aurio comprises a technical acoustic foam with either a factory-applied fabric finish or a factory-applied PVC paint finish that's applied to the face, edges and back return.
Another alternative method of soundproofing community halls, churches or other places of worship, is Sonata Vario, an absorber that comprises technical acoustic foam bonded to a rear metal support frame pre-finished with precision laser-cut fixing apertures. Sonata Vario absorbers are installed onto walls, using proprietary brackets, or ceilings, using a suspension pack. They can be fitted in either portrait or landscape orientation.
Soundproofing churches and community halls with acoustic absorbers
For soundproofing in community halls, churches and place of worship, Sonata Acoustics absorbers are also a good option. They come with high acoustic performance, are easy to install, are free from mineral fibre and glass wool, and are aesthetically pleasing.
For soundproofing between rooms in community halls, churches and place of worship, SRS has a range of high-performance soundproofing materials for walls, floors and ceilings, too.
Maxiboard is a good option for soundproofing community halls, churches and other places of worship. Maxiboard can be fixed to resilient bars attached to the wall or ceiling, to create a ‘floating’ wall with minimal loss of space. At SRS, we also supply acoustic mastics and sealants for a full service.
Soundproofing for community halls and churches
Acoustilay can also be used for soundproofing community halls, churches and other places of worship. Maxideck can also be used: this is high-density, 28mm composite acoustic flooring overlay board. It can be laid on top of floorboards, beneath the finished floor surface in halls, churches and other places of worship.
Another soundproofing device for community halls and places of worship is SubPrimo, an acoustic underlay for laminate and timber flooring. SubPrimo is loose-laid onto the floor before the laminate or timber floor goes down. It can be used with Maxi 60 Ceiling as part of the Total Party Floor Solution.
