Charlotte Street Blues Club

Selectaglaze prevents an outbreak of the blues

Client:      Live Acts Entertainment

“Charlotte Street Blues”acquired a reputation as the capital’s finest acoustic blues venue. The three-storey Georgian property was converted from a wine bar into a live music venue by, Live Acts Entertainment Ltd. They were well aware of potential noise containment problems particularly as the rear courtyard was incorporated into the main building, backing on to a residential mews. LAE’s MD Alan Lorimer says: “The courtyard is covered by a polycarbonate doomed roof which originally had no sound insulation so, we decided to build an acoustic brick wall between the courtyard and our neighbours; we also commissioned Selectaglaze to design and install secondary glazing inside the domed polycarbonate ceiling. This has eradicated noise breakout and enhanced the internal acoustics. The end result is that our neighbours continue to enjoy peace and quiet and enhanced internal sound quality”. Selectaglaze provided a total of 28 units all fitted with 6.4mm laminated safety glass.
