Post lockdown and in the challenging times of a pandemic, Anutone along with its channel partners, Acoutec, was able to successfully complete a landmark project for the North East – Executive Officers’ Club, Assam Petro-chemicals Ltd (APL), Namrup near Dibrugarh and Tinsukia in Assam.

Needs Assessment

Needs assessment for the project by the design team at Anutone included

  • Space usage – multipurpose activities like
    • cultural activities of music dance and drama
    • formal speeches at community events
    • indoor sports
    • club socials
  • Roof – A trussless roof with only purlins and load considerations for a lightweight acoustical ceiling support. Metal roof with inadequate underdeck of softfibre insulation only.
  • Weather – Temperature 10~30oC. Monthly rainfall 30~530mm totaling almost 3000mm annually. High humidity RH95.

Products used

Keeping in mind the special requirements, post the needs assessment, following was the product-based specific but total solution from Anutone, executed flawlessly by channel partners, Acoutec.

  • Ceiling – Pixel 0308 with suspension at 400mm instead of the usual 600mm for high RH considerations with an overlay of SynthPF for thermo-acoustical insulation
  • Paneling – Stretch Hush in a two-colour combination that embodies the colours of Kamakhya, the divine entity of the region
  • Columns – cleverly camouflaged with Soak Plane that ensures not only acoustics but abuse-resistance to audience touch being fabric-faced rigid core acoustical panels
  • Stage – Strand Ebony that offers not just sound absorption but light absorption too ensuring great videography of performances in the glare of floodlights and photography with flashbulbs.
