  • Function Room Divider Acoustic Curtains

    Sauderfoot Regency Hall Function Room

    The Regency Hall, Saundersfoot.  It is one of Saundersfoot’s most imposing and distinctive buildings.  Built-in 2013 following the demolition of the old hall on the same site, it occupies a central village location alongside a large car park with free parking between 5pm and 9am and all day from November to March.

    Direct Fabrics were approached to manufacture and install extra large curtains to go across the back of the function room to absorb sound and improve the acoustics of the room. The large drops of 450cm were an issue for companies with smaller working tables. But as direct fabrics has a large workroom it was straight forward to manufacture the curtains.

    The width of the wall is 14m and the clients wanted to be able to pull by hand the curtains across the space.

     

    The client chose our textured dimout fabric lined with our blackout fleece lining that adds a beautiful fullness to the curtains makes them look incredible.

    Introduction to the Client

    A beautiful village hall that is at the heart of the community in the village where Direct Fabrics are located. Direct Fabrics were approached to supply and install flame retardant curtains for the village hall stage. The original stage curtains were old and ripped on an old metal track.  The hall was built in 1910 and the present curtains must be at least 30 years plus old.

    Process

    After presenting the trustees with a range of samples it was decided to use the acoustic absorption material as the open-plan space was vast and any acoustic benefit would be greatly beneficial to reduce the reverberation around the space.

    Also, a new track was chosen that could be installed into the wooden frame around the top of the stage. This allowed for a strong fixing to hold the weight of the lined acoustic curtains.

    The pelmet boards were manufactured with a lightweight essex board and velcro attached to the top of the stage to allow for easy attaching of the upholstered pelmet.

     

    Conclusion

    A stunning pair of the curtain in a decadent teal colour. The finished article looks great and improves the acoustic performance of the space.

    "Backwell Parish Hall would like to express our thanks for the installation of the lovely curtains and track. They look splendid and we are very pleased indeed with the overall design and the choice of colour"
