Barrenjoey High School Auditorium, Avalon, NSWDecorTrend
The key acoustic requirement for this Performing Arts facility was an NRC rating of 0.80. The space was to become a central part of the community as well as the school so had to perform well and look good, and also had to curve slightly to satisfy the design intent.
DecorTrend panels were an ideal solution for this decorative acoustic ceiling, calculated to minimise the high reverberation that is characteristic of auditorium facilities.
DecorTrend slotted panels with Austrian Forest Maple finish were selected for their acoustic performance and also the ability to curve the panels by cutting reliefs into the rear of the sheets. The DSB concealed fixing system provided a surface that permits for easy removal of panels for when required.
The end result is a great looking space with excellent acoustics for performing arts.
