To ensure that the acoustic performance of the cinema screen is not compromised, it is essential to ensure that the raked seating is totally independent of the main structure, the floor slab and any adjacent screens.

TVS Steelwork Isolation Pads, manufactured from the high performance Sylomer and Sylodyn polyurethane materials, provide high levels of isolation either underneath column base-plates or at steel to steel connections. Each bespoke pad is sized and produced to match these connection details, whilst the grade of Sylomer or Sylodyn will be selected in accordance with the loading information provided for each connection. 

This ensures that the acoustic consultants natural frequency requirements can be met at each location under all load cases.

TVS Resilient Washers ensure that the TVS Steel-work Isolation Pads are not ‘short-circuited’ by the bolts that connect the steel-work or anchor in to the slab.
