Décortech Acoustic Perforations Enhance Office Fit-Out

Décortech specialises in fire-resistant, acoustic wall and ceiling panels, working with architects and specifiers from the design stage of a project to ensure all the fire and acoustic requirements are met without compromising the design intent.

Décortech panels have been specially engineered for excellent acoustic performance. Their standard range of Holes, Slots & Multigroove perforations have been tested to ISO11654 by the University of Auckland in conjunction with Marshall Day Acoustics.

For this recently completed fit-out for Avanti Finance, Décortech worked with David Muir from Muir Design Solutions to find the right acoustic solution to fit in with David’s vision for the project.

“After our first briefing meeting, with Avanti Finance, we went to visit the site. At this stage, it was a construction zone, with concrete structure, but no windows, services or ceilings," says David. "Immediately we wanted to retain the large footprint, raw structure and services and worked with our client to develop their space requirements. Fortunately, they were in agreement, but with over 200 staff in open-plan workspaces, we needed to address any acoustic issues."

"The solution to creating quiet zones, for open meetings, private work stations and reception areas, was to introduce areas of lowered acoustic ceilings, using Décortech panels," explains David. "The timber-finished, patterned tiles added a warm natural look to the work environment, achieved excellent results in absorbing sounds throughout, and provided very dramatic areas throughout the levels, in contrast to the concrete structure and exposed services."

"The overall results are excellent, both in looks and acoustic absorbance achieved, resulting in a very happy client,” says David.
