David Gresham Records is one of South Africa’s leading independent record companies. The record company has produced and published many local & international artists over the last 43 years including the likes of Nickelback, Aaliyah, Kylie Minogue, Prime Circle, Depeche Mode, Janet Jackson & Jesse Clegg to name only a select few.

The management of the studio approached DECIBEL AFRICA for acoustic treatment of their two editing suites and the recording area. After preparing preliminary simulations and the design for the project, DECIBEL AFRICA was appointed as the project management company with the task to provide a comprehensive upgrade of the facility, in order to improve the Acoustic environment and Aesthetics.

Various elements involved in the project included:

  • Replacing existing ceiling with acoustic ceiling panels
  • Replacing existing curtains with acoustic curtains
  • Treating the walls with textile and wooden perforated acoustic panels
  • Installing laminated wood flooring and a double studio door for the vocal booth with soundproofing membrane

There were two main objectives: effective Acoustic transformation and minimizing the disruption of the workflow. We had to eliminate room modes, smooth the reverberation curve and achieve a clean and dry environment, where the full spectrum of frequencies is audible.

The different elements of the installation were combined together to ensure that all surfaces are acoustically treated, allowing the producers and musicians to work in a more pleasant and efficient environment.

We used a combination of fabric and wooden Acoustic wall panels to complement each other, due to the variable absorption rate of mid to high range frequencies.

We are proud to announce that this project has now been successfully completed and the customer has expressed gratification with a reference letter.

VISTO 48 elastic soundproofing panel

VISTO 48 is a high-tech soundproofing and sound-absorbing elastic panel for walls and ceilings. Different layers combined in the panel achieve much higher levels of sound insulation compared to the traditional materials such as glass fibre, Rockwool or cork. The position of this highly elastic polyvinyl diaphragm (middle layer) works as a soundproofing and sound-absorbing membrane. The wavy shape of the porous material (front layer) has an optimised geometry that increased sound absorption in the 400-650 Hz range, significantly these are the most typical frequency of the human voice. VISTO 48 is a patented product and is the result of two years of development, during which the full parameters determining its’ acoustic properties were examined, such as: * Airflow resistance* Viscous and thermal length of the pores within the material* Porosity Soundproofing panel VISTO 48 is suitable for: - Installation in plasterboard (as a substitute for traditional mineral wool), above suspended ceilings, under raised floors and as a finished surface in studios, voice-over booths, music practise rooms etc. - For sound insulation on walls, it is recommended that these panels are installed within a recess formed from plasterboard (or similar structure) – Visto 48 can be glued to the wall surface using VISTO BOND or VISTO Fix. The advantage of mounting within a recess helps avoid damage to the panel edges in areas of high traffic. - For suspended floor soundproofing. VISTO 48 can be applied directly over an existing sub-floor without any glue. - When used above suspended ceilings, VISTO 48 panels should be applied directly to the gridwork suspension system. It is recommended to reinforce the suspended grid with additional hangers to prevent sagging.42334234234
