Acoustic Fabric Screen

  • Project: School Acoustics, Sparsholt College
  • Description: Acoustic Fabric Screen
  • Client: Sparsholt College
  • Location: Sparsholt
  • Applications: Screen Divider Acoustic
  • Fabric: Digital Canvas
  • Frame: Aluminium extrusion
  • Ref: 1538

This interior double curved screen was commissioned to acoustically divide the main library area from a quiet study area.

The original material was to be a PVC coated glass. However, after some development, the more forgiving qualities of Digital Canvas proved to be a better solution. Aluminum extrusion was used both to the top and the bottom to provide a flat but curved profile in order to follow the roof's curved shape.

This is a great example of how a single layer of fabric can provide an effective acoustic barrier within a space.
