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. The different layers combined in the panel achieve much higher levels of sound insulation compared to the traditional materials such as glass, mineral, rock mineral wool or cork. The position of the highly elastic polyvinyl diaphragm (middle layer) works as soundproofing and sound absorbing membrane. The wavy shape of the porous material (front layer) is optimised geometry that increased sound absorption in the range 400-650 Hz, which are the most typical frequency of the human voice.VISTO 48 is patented product, result of two years elaboration, during which the actual parameters determining the acoustic properties were examined, such as: * Airway resistance’s strength* Viscous and thermal length of the pore* Porosity   Soundproofing panel VISTO 48 is suitable for: - Installation in plasterboard (as substitute for traditional mineral wadding) above suspended ceilings, under raised floors and as opened facing in studios and rehearsal. - For wall sound insulation. The panel must be installed between supporting profiles of plasterboard structure, where it can be tucked between profiles adhered to the same wall with glue VISTO BOND or attached to mounting elements VISTO FIX. - For raised floor soundproofing. VISTO 48 should be applied directly over an existing floor without gluing. More sound insulation for floors, see here. - For above suspended raster ceiling installation. VISTO 48 panel has to be applied directly on the raster structure, which should be reinforced with additional hangers to prevent sagging.42334234234
