Old Keilor Hotel
Old Keilor Hotel appoached Sound Ceilings with noise creating an issue both inside and outside their venue. Inside they hoped to define a dining area from the more upbeat bar and dancefloor. Outside surrounding tennants had begun complaining about the sound escaping from the marquee which was being used as a function room.
As is the case with so many permanent and semi-permanent marquees used for this purpose, containing noise from polluting surrounding areas can prove extremely problematic. Usually the barrier between a marquees dancefloor and the outside is absolute minimal, the fact that in Old Keilor Hotel the marquee sides are raised ment that there was in fact only air between a high-volume dancefloor and paying hotel guests.
In order to combat both issues discussed the Sound Ceiling was designed to sit in the middle of their bar area. The 48 tile system was attched to a central pole providing 17.5m squared of dancefloor playing in excess of 98dB, yet with nothing in between sleeping guests were not disturbed.
