“Sky Rink Studios has plans to establish a cutting-edge television and film studio within the Carlton Centre district. This will be further boosted by the creation of a conference venue with the capacity to host up to 500 delegates and a post-production facility to encourage engagement from the film industry, both locally and abroad. The facility will have the latest equipment, highly trained employees and specialised, high-tech services in media and sound production.” (Advertorial posted 15 April 2016 – https://mg.co.za/article/2016-04-15-00-johannesburgs-inner-city-opportunity-knocks)
Aluglass Bautech is excited to have been a part of this cutting-edge project, from designing, manufacturing to installing state of the art ACOUSTIC TREATMENT SOLUTIONS for Sky Rink Studios.
For spaces that are critical for acoustic treatment, Variflex Mobile Acoustic Partition System and Varikust Acoustic Doors were installed. The Variflex system allows a room to be subdivided so that two or more areas can be used simultaneously, allowing for optimal shooting times or to allow a number of conferences to take place.
2 Variflex mobile acoustic partition systems (operable walls) VX110 with a length of 24 meters and a height of 4 meters, have individual elements that are sturdy and once locked and sealed into place, have a sound insulation of 51dB. Absorption panels were integrated into the finish of the elements to optimise the sound absorption. When the full-sized room is required, the top-hung elements are easily moved on an overhead track and positioned neatly to one side – requiring no floor tracks.
12 HUGE VK105EH Varikust Acoustic Doors ( 8 off 2500mm x 3500mm and 4 off 2900mm x 3500mm) plus another 2 VK105 (1800mm x 2200mm) finished in black Melawood were installed, complementing the desired environment in conjunction to the sound solution. In addition, 32 smaller VK62 Varikust doors were installed.
