Benefield Wheatsheaf

Sound Ceilings UK installed a 30 module Sound Ceiling at Benfield Wheatsheaf, a country hotel and restaurant, and popular wedding venue. The installation of a Sound Ceiling in their marquee was an instant success resolving a noise problem that had been going on for over a year by reducing noise escaping the venue by over 30db.

A compressor limiter was installed with the Sound Ceiling to stop any external sources from increasing the 96 db limit agreed by the venue. Once it was installed, our Acoustic Engineers went to the closest residential property some 60 meters away. We played the sound system at 90 db, turning it up at 5 db increments until we could hear the music. However when we reached 110 db on the dance floor and we still couldn’t hear the music at the point of usual annoyance, it was decided by all involved that the test was complete as the venue only required 96 db on the dance floor.

Following the removal of the venue’s marquee, Soundceilings UK were recently called to move the Sound Ceiling into the restaurant and function room at the venue.
