Rain Noise on Metal Roofs & Soundproofing Solution

The following report has been taken from the August 2012 issue of  The Construction Index

Recent heavy rain has revealed that the International Broadcasting and Media Centre, specially built for the London Olympics, needs soundproofing.

There’s a racket inside the media centre when it rains

In the kind of torrential downpours that much of the UK has been subject to recently, the building is too noisy to broadcast from.

The centre is to be home to thousands of journalists and hundreds of broadcasting organisations from around the world next month during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.Some 20,000 broadcasters, journalists and photographers are expected.

The Games organisers have called on soundproofing specialists to help suppress the unwelcome sound of rainfall on the metal roof.

They should have asked about our Tecsound T50 non-flammable Sound Damping material that is ideal for thin metal roofs and is the perfect solution to soundproof rain noise on metal roofs from affecting the rooms beneath.  More information on our T50 soundproofing mat along with our other soundproofing materials can be viewed on our web site www.soundservice.co.uk
