Opened by Olympic Gold medallist, Adam Peaty, Holly Hill Leisure Centre, Southampton has a 25m swimming pool, learner pool, gymnasium, exercise rooms and dance studio. Knauf AMF provided acoustic solutions to help create a facility fit for future Olympic athletes.
Philip Lyons at Space & Place architects specified Heradesign wall absorbers for the swimming pool hall to reduce and manage the noise level, creating a comfortable sound environment.
Heradesign is fitted along the upper portion of the main wall in the pool hall to provide maximum sound absorption (Class A). Heradesign controls the ambient sound level, reduces reverberation and improves speech intelligibility.
Heradesign is 90% humidity resistant which ensures the acoustic panels remain dimensionally stable making it ideal for wet areas. For additional protection from mould and bacteria, Heradesign is manufactured with a specialist resistant coating.
Heradesign provides a visual contrast to the pool’s many hard surfaces thanks to its organic, textured appearance. Manufactured from sustainable wood-wool, Heradesign adds a tactile quality to the finished interior. Heradesign can be ordered in any colour and fitted as wall absorbers, ceilings, baffles or rafts.
