Single Wall Studio
Two single wall music practice rooms (MPRs) can be united to form a Live/Control studio. The noise reduction characteristics correspond to the attenuation of a single wall room. However, the attenuation of one room with regards to the other resembles the attenuation characteristics of a double wall. MPRs and Studios are equipped with a wide 762mm (30”) window as are the majority of our rooms. This offers a particular advantage when conducting live recording. Producers can see performers during recordings. Eckel studios are ideal for applications requiring strict acoustic control in both live and control environments.
Double Wall Live / Single Wall Control Studios
Top professional production companies insist on this studio. The double wall live room assures maximum artist output while the single wall control room permits live voice speech and interaction without any interference from outside noise. The control room has a single door and the live room has a double door system. Studios are available with or without a floor in the control room.
Wall & Ceiling Construction
Wall panels are 4” (100mm) and fabricated of galvanized solid steel outer surface and perforated steel inner surface. Ceiling panels include an integrated attenuated ventilation system and 6” (150mm) thick with galvanized solid steel outer surface and perforated steel inner surface. Acoustic insulation is dependent on panels and designed to provide independently tested transmission loss of selected panel system.
Isolated Floor Construction
Floor panels are available in 2”, 3” and 4” (51mm, 76mm, 102mm) thick fabricated from galvanized steel outer and inner (walking) surfaces. The floor panels are supplied with heavy duty framing members and inner surface to support consistent use and accommodation for performers requiring wheelchair accessibility. Acoustic insulation is consistent with that of the wall and ceiling panels. All floors are installed on isolation mounts to protect against structure borne noise sources. Overall step up height is approximately 7” (175mm) from outside.
Standard door clear openings. The doors are designed to provide similar acoustic performance as the walls and to sit flush when installed. Hardware consists of chrome plated hinges with a cam rise mechanism to ensure both proper seating of the door and ease of closing. A 1” (25mm) door pull handle is used, assuring ease of operation and ADA compliance. Door windows from small to full size are available as an option. Alternate door sizes and types can be accommodated.
Observation windows are provided, typical nominal size 24” (610mm) W x 30” (750mm) H, fabricated from two layers of laminated safety glass set in an extruded PVC window frame. Alternate sizes are available to suit specific needs.
Jack panels are installed on all rooms and suites both single and double wall. Standard jack panels are supplied with twelve .25” (6mm) phone jacks, two USB connections and one 1” (25mm) diameter pass-thru. Non-standard configurations are available to suit unique or specific jack requirements.
CSA Approved Electrical – C22.2 601.1
All rooms are supplied with CSA approved, pre-wired 120 volts recessed internal electrical, including internal and external facing recessed duplex receptacles. Power is supplied via a power cord connected to the customer’s 120 volts source or may be hard wired upon request. Country specific electric and cord configurations are available for international customers (240v option also available).
Ceiling Integrated Ventilation Systems
The integrated attenuated ventilation system consists of factory installed extract air fans and a passive intake air flow. The fans are quiet and use low power consumption. For customers wanting to connect to their existing HVAC system optional vent collars are available.
Standard finish is textured poly – urethane enamel in Eckel White, Luxury White, Beige or Warm Grey; other colours available on request.
