Trapeze approached Hush after an environmental health officer (EHO) had conducted a test during a typical evening in Trapeze and had deemed that the club noise was too loud and in turn warned if the noise continued a abatement order would be made a force the closure of the premises to ensure there was no further disruption to the adjacent apartments.
After conducting some tests of our own and investigating further we had come to the conclusion that the main areas on the ground floor and basement had two shared walls with the apartments and also there were multiple fire escape doorways that also shared a flight of stairs with the apartments.
The team then set out by applying our soundproofing services via independent wall systems in the basement, ground floor and fire escape stairway along with treating weak points in sections of ceilings doors and floors also. The walls were 3 times thicker than our traditional soundproof walls as the sound being emitted from the speakers was up to 120DB, the equivalent of a fighter jet taking off!
Upon completion of the project we had successfully soundproofed the weak points in the walls, doors and certain sections of the flooring and ceiling areas up to 80% which far exceeds the criteria of Document E of the soundproofing regulations. A test was conducted by the EHO once the project was completed and they had deemed the sound transference “next to non-existent” and allowed the club to operate at maximum volume.
