The EntX Entertainment Centre has quiet, warm cinemas thanks to Forman Building Systems’ custom wall solution.

For the walls between Hoyts cinemas in the EntXcomplex, Ignite Architects required a specialist acoustic-rated wall system. Forman Building Systems – a leading distributor of interior wall systems, including thermal, acoustic and fire protection – supplied the bespoke system required.

Business unit manager Richard Jelley says Forman provided a project-specific wall solution to meet the challenging performance requirements to the approval of Ignite, main contractor Calder Stewart and the University of Auckland’s rigorous acoustic testing system. As part of this, Forman took the short lead time procurement available to source the custom-made components in its stride.

“The one-off wall design uses Studco steel stud that easily carries the weight of the plasterboard, the heavy insulation, and the Resilmount sound insulation system,” says Jelley.
