SUPERPHON PROVIDES REVERBERATION CONTROL AT COVENTRY’S TWO FRIARGATE
CMS Danskin Acoustics’ SuperPhon panel is to contribute to reverberation control in the full height reception area of Coventry’s prestigious new, Grade A office address TWO FRIARGATE.
TWO FRIARGATE is part of Coventry’s first dedicated business district, Friargate, adjacent to Coventry Railway Station. When complete in the coming months, it will be the city’s most sustainable building and premier office address. TWO FRIARGATE has achieved BREEAM Excellent accreditation and is targeting A AirScore rating and EPC A.
The twelve-storey building is a joint public-private partnership development overseen by Coventry City Council, Cannon Kirk Group and West Midlands Combined Authority. The architects are Allies and Morrison and the main contractor is Bowmer+Kirkland.
Specified by the architects for the reception, which incorporates a business lounge, the SuperPhon panels have been installed by Bespoke Building & Joinery Projects.
SuperPhon is an acoustically absorbent ceiling and wall panel of composite construction for reducing sound reverberation, providing up to Class ‘A’ acoustic performance. Acoustic insulation experts CMS Danskin Acoustics provide a free reverberation calculation service along with technical and on-site support.
Manufactured by CMS Danskin Acoustics in Warrington, SuperPhon is designed for use in many applications, including recording/rehearsal studios, audiology rooms, cinemas and theatres, schools, call centres and conference rooms. The panel has been installed at the British Science Museum and at Jodrell Bank, for example.
The TWO FRIARGATE project involved a tight order-to-delivery timescale of just nine days and a number of different sized panels all with a Cara Glass finish.
Commenting Joe Bradder of Bespoke Building & Joinery Projects said,
“SuperPhon is a good product, easy to install and of good quality. We have used it in a number of projects now.”
SuperPhon is available in a range of standard sizes and thicknesses. Bespoke panels and absorbers size, thickness, shape or fabric facing and high impact performance options can be readily manufactured. A flexible solution, SuperPhon can provide complete or partial wall coverage. Its wide range of colour finishes, including 63 colours and others available on special order, provides aesthetically pleasing reverberation control.
