Legislation needs to be a
‘quiet’ business

Acoustics for parliament, legislative
assemblies and council halls

Anutone Inspiration Series

 

Legislation is the epitome of democracy and legislative halls the temples. The spoken word of the speaker, ruling party and opposition needs to be heard loud and clear by those in the hall and remote audiences via television, radio or internet.

Anutone’s design team works closely with clients, consultants and contractors to channelize their creativity into viable 3D models for acoustical vistas such that interior spaces are a delight to stakeholders especially end users.

  • The Lower House is the most important hall of elected representatives that passes legislation to make laws that govern a country and its citizens
  • Acoustics in terms of both noise isolation and sound absorption is very important to maintain the décor and decorum of the august house.
  • Moreover, in modern age of electronic live transmission, acoustics needs to be precise and suitable for sensitive microphone pickups without feedback or echo.
  • Enter Anutone with custom solutions for such temples of democracy
  • Ceiling – Stretch SLS Bone with Strand and SynthPF backer contoured with airgap for desired NRC and RT of the hall
  • Panelling – a combination of Slats Surco in Teak Teca (with Sonator blanks) and Stretch SLS Bone, both with SynthPF backer and airgap to achieve desired NRC and hence RT of the hall
