In 2014 One Hyde Park was highly commended by the judges at the ANC Acoustic Awards due to the complex acoustic challenges faced and the sound insulation solutions provided in this extremely high profile project.

The challenge

This most prestigious London development demanded performance levels that not only met, but exceeded the criteria demanded by Building Regulations ‘Approved Document E’. The project required that the final choice in material solution had to be as thin as possible for both practical and ascetic reasons. Independent UKAS accredited laboratory data was required before the product could be finally approved.

Our solution

SIDERISE FIP high performance acoustic panel was offered, which comprises of four primary layers in composite form, offering a combination of stiffness and
damping within a high mass panel with a nominal thickness of only 31mm.

The SIDERISE FIP high performance acoustic panel was tested at Sound Research Laboratories in April 2011 and the test results far exceeded expectations for a thin, single homogenous panel, normally limited to 30-35dB, it achieved 46dB Rw proving that the FIP panel was in a class of its own.

This simple effective solution is now being considered for use in a large number of projects, for office and residential fit-outs in both the UK and overseas.

Third Octave data is available on request.

"We set out to achieve a performance greater than 40dB Rw, a challenge for such a thin, single panel which would normally be limited to around 30-35dB. The result of 46dB Rw for the SIDERISE FIP High Performance Acoustic Panel doesn’t quite defy the laws of physics, but it’s a very impressive outcome, and a very useful product." - Ed Clarke Clarke Saunders Associates, Noise Consultants

Winner of the "Most Stylish Entertainment Venue" at the 2013 Scottish Style Awards, the SSE Hydro has proved to be one of Glasgow’s most prestigious entertainment venues since opening its doors September 2013. The Hydro Arena was designed by Foster and Partners as part of the Queen’s Dock redevelopment project.

In 2014 Roskel Contracts were given a AISfpdc gold award in the Judges Award category and additionally won Project of the Year.

The challenge

An acoustic performance upgrade was required to suit the complex geometry of the arena’s bespoke British Gypsum sloping fire rated boarded plenum ceilings. As the ceilings’ design offered restricted access, an exclusively boarded solution would prove unsuitable. SIDERISE was approached by Roskel Contracts for its technical expertise in acoustics to find a bespoke solution that would meet the acoustic performance criteria requirements.

Our solution

SIDERISE used its acoustic barrier/damping mat solution SIDERISE BM/P5/BOAK and BM/P10/BOAK. Overlapping sheets were fitted from below through the structural framework. The SIDERISE Boak sheets were fixed and sealed to provide a continuous membrane which could be shaped and installed to suit the services and structural elements. The result was a fully compliant system.

SIDERISE Boak BM P5 and P10 sheets are thin polymeric sound barriers that provide exceptional flexibility and offer optimum sound reduction and dampening performance.  They were originally designed to improve the acoustic insulation performance of metal, wood and plastic being particularly effective at reducing the effect of coincidence dip resonance in these materials.

They are commonly used in construction applications including high performance wall and partition constructions; external cladding to ducts/pipes; component in built up metal roof and cladding systems. They can also be used in sandwich constructions between boards or as an internal membrane in built up composites where final flexibility is required.

"We came to Siderise on the Hydro Arena as we had concerns that a buildable solution, which met the acoustic performance criteria, could not practically be achieved with an exclusively boarded solution. Having worked with them previously we were confident that they had the range of products and the technical expertise to assist us in developing a practical solution and liaising with both the Architect and Acoustic Consultant. From concept, through mock-ups and the final site installation they provided us with good advice and back up on this extremely complex and challenging project." - Roskel Contracts

The challenge

When the London 2012 design team wanted a third party accredited ‘firestop’ with ‘tested’ high acoustic performance to close the movement cavity between the rear of the facade and the partitions and floor slabs, Siderise was their only choice.

This most prestigious event in London, the 2012 Olympic Games, demanded performance levels that not only met, but exceeded the criteria demanded by Building Regulations ‘Approved Document E’

The project required that the final choice in material solution had to be a third party accredited Fire Stop, and able to provide proven / tested levels of acoustic performance to achieve the criteria which was set at 5dB above current Building Regulations.

Independent UKAS accredited laboratory data was required before the product could be finally approved.

Our solution

We provided SIDERISE CW-FS Curtain Wall Fire stop System with acoustic upgrades.

For the horizontal application CW-FS120, a two hour perimeter barrier firestop was used with a mass barrier overlay of the BM/P5/BOAK/SA and two layers of acoustic composite SIDERISE Acoustic Void Barriers for Suspended Ceilings - CVB/C10 below.

For the vertical application SR/MF160/BOAK was used in conjunction with two lines of both SIDERISE Linear Gap Seal and SIDERISE Acoustic Void Closures - AVC/10’s.

A sound result! The project demanded a rigorous program of Pre Completion Testing. The SIDERISE solutions met and exceeded the performance criteria.

“Since using these Siderise materials, we received no acoustic failures whatsoever” - Sharps Redmore.

SIDERISE mullion/transom acoustic inserts are market leading acoustic solutions designed to reduce vertical and horizontal sound transmission in curtain wall buildings.

The SIDERISE V baffle - MI5 is used at floor level to all mullions central to the room, providing acoustic treatment for vertical sound transmission.

The SIDERISE HB insert - MI6 is used to fill full height at sides of room where partitions abut, to provide acoustic treatment for both horizontal and vertical sound transmission.

SIDERISE has supplied both MI5 and MI6 to construction projects throughout the UK including:

  • One St Peters Square, Manchester
  • Silverstone UTC, Silverstone
  • Shepherds Bush Pavilion, London
  • De Montford University, Leicester
  • The Gateway Conference Centre, Aylesbury
  • Twickenham Academy 6th Form, Twickenham

Our client was looking to achieve a NR35 level in the target room and therefore needed a 15dB LwA improvement.

Through consultation, prototyping and calculation we were able to hit the target level whilst maintaining the necessary airflow and turbulence requirements.

Our solution incorporated both acoustically absorbent linings and a splitter attenuation system.

This enabled the manufacturer to go to market with industry leading noise levels for the most demanding projects.

Typically with diesel gensets the low frequency sound power is all controlling, usually 125-500Hz. These frequencies, due to their long wavelength (1.47-2.72m), are extremely challenging to treat.

Our approach is to treat the canopy holistically, giving consideration to multiple noise paths and their comparative levels and frequencies, thereby allowing us to hone our treatment to best effect.

The client following the revised design was able to take their product to market and remain in accordance with environmental noise legislation.

One St. Peter’s Square in Manchester provides 268,000 sq ft of office space in the heart of the central business district. The building has been designed to meet the extremely exacting demands of a BREEAM Excellent 'Grade A’ compliance.

The challenge

In order to achieve the required acoustic performance both horizontally and vertically, any potential weak points had to be investigated and it has been necessary to upgrade the curtain wall mullions. A hollow mullion is an ideal conduit for flanking sound transmission and even if all other elements, such as the floor slab, partitions or ceilings perform well acoustically, an untreated mullion can drag the overall DnFw performance of the façade below its required specification.

Our solution

Working with the main contractor, Carillion and Red Architectural, the façade installers, SIDERISE supplied products from the mullion and transom range for the project: SIDERISE V baffle - MI5 & SIDERISE HB insert - MI6 mullion inserts. These inserts are available for any profile and are cut to the exact internal dimensions of the mullion or transom. The range of inserts have been shown by test to be capable of improving performance by up to 9dB. A video showing how the mullion insert works in conjunction with our FIP acoustic barrier can be found on our Gallery page.
