Kings Weald Community Centre

Kings Weald Community Centre is located at the former Keymer Brick & Tile site to the east of Burgess Hill. The centre has a large area of public open space, a playground, a multi-use games area, and a mini soccer pitch. We were asked to specify and install an acoustic solution within the hall which was noisy when hosting everything from hobby or fitness classes to children’s parties.

And now for the technical bit: As sound hits a hard surface, typically it will reflect back out into the room. This is reverberation. Without controlling this, sound will continue to reflect around the room. With several sound sources producing noise, this can cause a problem by disrupting people. By specifying Eden tiles on walls, hanging from ceilings or as baffles this unwanted sound can be absorbed. With more sound being absorbed and less reflecting, the reverberation times are cut shorter, and the overall noise in the room will appear to decrease, resulting in fewer interruptions.

 Eden tiles are constructed from 12mm medium density fibreboard (MDF) adhered (using water based adhesive) to 50mm sound absorbing foam. The sound absorbing foam is tested to BSEN ISO 354 and has a noise reduction co-efficient (NRC) of 0.90 for 50mm thick. Technical report ref no: C/23213/T01.

 A typical sized room (2m high x 4m wide x 3m deep) without any Eden sound absorbing tiles will have a reverberation time of 1.0 second (the reverberation time is defined as the length of time required for sound to decay 60 decibels from its initial level). Our aim by using Eden tiles is to reduce the reverberation time in the room, resulting in less unwanted noise. For example if you covered 60% of the walls in Eden 64mm thick tiles (which have a NRC of 0.90) the reverberation time would be reduced to 0.3 seconds. This equates to a 70% decrease in reverberation time.

For Kings Weald Community Centre we installed 144sqm of Eden 64mm tiles which created a coverage of 40%.
