Arcadia proudly designed, manufactured and installed over 880m2 of high performance acoustic & mechanical wall louvres to maximise natural ventilation whilst ensuring correct levels of sound attenuation. Arcadia’s Hush® Acoustic Wall Louvres enable air flow and ventilation as a key part of the building design while ensuring noise does not escape from the building.

To ensure correct levels of Sound attenuation, the Hush® 300 and Hush® 600 series louvres were used. These are the highest performing acoustic louvres within the range and are Laboratory tested for Noise reduction and pressure drop. The system is manufactured from extruded aluminium in anodise finish which provides a high grade coating for longevity and a smooth architectural finish to the louvres. The Arcadia Hush® Acoustic Louvres and Spur® Fixed Louvres were fabricated in panel form. This allowed for a quick installation and minimised time onsite thus reducing costs.
