For art galleries to be a public success it is essential that you consider the acoustics during the design process.  Art gallery acoustics can often be poor if left untreated due to the hard wooden floors, and minimal furnishings within the large open spaces.  When big groups, including loud school excursions gather together, the noise will reverberate off every hard surface, making it an uncomfortable place in which to spend time. 

We have the perfect acoustic solutions with our SonaSpray range ensuring that the acoustic treatment within your gallery does not look out of place and detract any attention from the main attraction - the exhibits. 

We have architectural acoustic finishes suitable for any projects from textured to the smoothest acoustic plaster available to ensure that you can have perfect gallery acoustics without design compromise.

We were specified to acoustically treat the boat exhibition halls and museum cafeteria area of this stunning museum to ensure that the acoustic ambience was fitting with the calming and beautiful surrounding views and would not steal any focus from the interior design or exhibitions on display. 

Colchester Visual Arts Centre

Colchester Visual Arts Centre

A large space like this project in the Colchester Visual Arts Centre would normally be extremely reverberant and noisy with its timber floor & minimal walls; but instead the feeling is more of a grand open space that is lined with plush carpets and soft furnishings after being treated with our SonaSpray fcx recycled, architectural, acoustic spray finish.
