An acoustic attenuation system from Sto has been installed in the diving and main pools at the £18.2m Aberdeen Sports Village Aquatic Centre as part of the latest development phase.

The StoSilent acoustic ceiling solution chosen is based on a StoSilent suspended grid made from steel, which was specially coated to protect against corrosion. This was covered with StoSilent Panel A-Tec Alu acoustic boards.

Made from blown glass granulate, these boards are impervious to moisture and also feature a factory-applied backing laminate which allows the boards to attenuate sound waves and prevent air from flowing through them and causing marking or staining on the completed ceiling.

The boards were then coated with StoSilent Decor M – a sound-permeable silicate acoustic coating which creates a seamless, clean and attractive appearance.
