SupaExpance solves thermal and acoustic problems for Berry house
The owners of a home in Berry NSW struggled with thermal and acoustic problems in their large open plan living area.
The problems faced were significant and complex:
- The roof structure had a corrugated skin which caused sound to reverberate, an acoustic issue exacerbated by the large windows and timber floor.
- The roof also did not provide adequate insulation making the temperature within this space very hard and expensive to manage.
- The roof construction and spans were unable to bear significant additional weight.
- The owners did not want to have to vacate the house during the installation.
A solution that combined acoustic absorption, thermal insulation, was lightweight and had a low intrusion installation process, was required.
After much research, they turned to Supawood who proposed a SupaExpance taut ceiling, a system which met their needs perfectly.
The new ceiling enclosed a space that would contain a specially selected insulation material. This enabled the owners to maintain a comfortable temperature as well as dampening the noise reverberation. During the installation process the residents were able to continue living in the house.
The end look is a clean smooth ceiling expanse, optimised acoustic performance and greatly reduced heating cost.
This project is evidence of how a SupaExpance ceiling by Supawood can radically improve both the thermal and acoustic properties of any space, with a dust free and quick installation process that causes a minimal disturbance to the occupants.
Supawood supplies pre-finished panel lining systems for interior walls and ceilings, including acoustic, fire retardant and wet-sealed versions.Learn more
