Kazbar Systems provides complete acoustic treatment solution for Quays Production and Podcasting studio in Greenwich, London.
In October 2020 Joseph from Quays Studios commissioned Kazbar Systems to provide a complete acoustic treatment solution for his new studio.
The Studio measures 6.4 m long x 3.2 m wide, with a ceiling height of circa 2.4m.
The client required an aesthetically timeless and vibrant design, whilst maintaining all the acoustic properties that are necessary for high quality podcast and music production.
Acoustic Solution for Production & Podcasting Studio
Dave Eccleston, Kazbar Systems Technical Manager, assisted with specification of bespoke high, mid and low frequency absorbers to reduce the RT (reverb time) of the Studio to approximately 0.4 seconds. The treatments achieved a uniform decay time across the frequency range, providing Joseph with an accurate environment for writing and production.
Each of the absorbers were wrapped in Joseph’s preferred colour of fabric and were mounted to the walls and ceilings using split battens, providing an invisible mounting solution.
A large serge drape was installed to reduce unwanted sonic reflections from the entrance door.
