Soundroll acoustic roller shutters at Ice Arena Wales
SAFE-door Industries Ltd have recently completed the installation of three Soundroll 31 acoustic roller shutters at the new home of the Cardiff Devils ice hockey team, Ice Arena Wales – part of the Cardiff International Sports Village in Cardiff, Wales. The main contractor on the £17m project was Kier Construction and the architect was Scott Brownrigg.
Ice Arena Wales houses two ice rinks and seats more than 3,000 spectators. The three Soundroll 31 acoustic roller shutters are located around the shared ice resurfacer (Zamboni) garage, and they isolate the ice rinks from each other and from the rest of the building.
The Kier Construction Project Manager commented that SAFE-door Industries Ltd were “very proactive and helpful” and described the completed project as “a very successful installation.”
Following commissioning, the General Manager of Ice Arena Wales stated that “Since the doors have been installed they have had no problems. There have been no issues with sound levels throughout the building, even when a hockey game is on, and that is when the arenas are at their loudest.”
The Soundroll range of acoustic roller shutters from SAFE-door Industries Ltd are manufactured at the company’s factory in Brampton, Cumbria and have a number of useful features. With tested acoustic performance of Rw30dB, Rw31dB and Rw53dB, the three models in Soundroll range operate quickly at an average speed of up to 150mm/sec. Soundroll 31 and Soundroll 53 can also be specified with fire resistance properties up to 60 minutes to EN 1634-1.
All three Soundroll models feature a wind end locked curtain to ensure a wind load category of Class 5 (1250Pa). All Soundroll models are available in a natural galvanised steel finish, or in a wide range of polyester powder coat RAL colours to suit the application.
