Soundlag used in the Largest Emirates Resort
Madinat Jumeirah Hotel is a new 5 star Hotel built in Dubai with a total of 440 rooms. Located next to the iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel is set to be the largest resort the Emirates region has ever seen.
Soundlag 4525C is to be installed throughout the Hotel. The unique construction of Soundlag pipe lagging gives the dual benefits of a noise barrier and a noise absorber. The highly dense and flexible mass layer provides excellent sound reduction properties, whilst the decoupling layer breaks the vibration path between the substrate and the mass barrier, thus allowing the vinyl external wrap to remain flexible and thereby optimise its performance. The external foil facing offers a fire resistant covering and an excellent surface to join adjacent sheets
The project is still under construction and as yet no testing has been completed. With no specific acoustic parameters given from the MEP consultant (CKR Consulting Engineers), Soundlag 4525C was chosen specifically due to the maximum insertion loss amongst its competition. The flexibility of the barrier was what impressed the consultants as it makes the product easy to install.
In total 10,120 sqm will be installed throughout the hotel. The completion date is set to be June 2016 with phase 4 development under way. See here for new case study.
