New build small size high isolation project

Well, we have a fairly smooth winch towards the intended placement... we actually ended up using our feet to encourage it in when we could get behind it... bracing off the concrete beams above. We nudged it almost into position but left it on 25mm square steel section to lift it for rubber placement...

New build small size high isolation project

Hi All, Geeze finally finished a box today! Tricky tight fits as some of the timber wasn’t cut accurately enough... lump hammer required for persuading. The new layout will give me a lot more flexibility for storage so I’m well happy with that! Gladly we know the silencer placement for sure...just n...

Cheers, Jennifer Thanks! Yea, I did umm and ahh about it...I wondered if they might cause some turbulen...

New build small size high isolation project

Well it’s been a weird week. I thought we’d have the duct liner on Wednesday am but it didn't make an appearance until Thursday, by which time we were busy on other bits so today was the day for duct lining. It is tricky to get it all in as singular section as possible. You don’t want longitude join...

849 Don't worry too much about that. We can make use of the extra in other places in your studio. Save all of your scrap insulation, of all types, as it can be probably be used for fill, in unexpected places... - Stuart - Ah ok great! I have had another thought about the AHU location and silencer l...

The actually manufacture insulation for Knauf etc, they’re not a retailer so don’t expect any of that sort of service... I’m having to over order... how many m2 do you reckon you’ll need?

Re: New build small size high isolation project

The render went on pretty well and I got the plinth base coated with high moisture resistant basecoat suitable for below dpc and ground contact conditions as the outside level will be raised a bit. 7A17FA48-EFD4-41BC-8978-EC244DEFB2D9.jpeg 377ADDD3-5358-4CF6-B377-DC3064EB59A6.jpeg 826894CA-E4BB-4D86...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

Hi All, The duct liner is planned for delivery Wednesday am next week so we did what we could easily on the silencer then turned our attention outside as the weather has been dry this week! Got the MLV stuck to the MDF, that stuff is so hard to measure accurately! It stretches and compresses so your...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

Hooray! Finally got to a position where we can start building the silencers! We welded a metal frame to support the silencer while it is built, lifted and persuaded into position. It sits on a Genie lift which will winch up and down. We’re having to build the silencers in the corridor, which has lim...

Re: In-Duct Air Velocity?

From my super limited knowledge and soon to be moderately limited experience, I think I can say it is not necessary outside the inner leaf... where are your ‘inner leaf silencers’? If they’re outside the inner room then just the duct/sleeve from the inner room silencers would need liner... I’m sure ...
