The new ACG Gymnasium complex is being used for a variety of functions in its early years everything from assemblies, to performance art and, of course, sporting events are held in the modern facility. And with so many uses came the need for precise acoustic solutions that would reflect sound in some areas and absorb it in others.

ACG selected Woodtex acoustic panels for the ceilings as they had performed well as fencingaround plant outside the school's utilities building, says Charlotte Saunders, project architect for Babbage Consultants.

There were three reasons for the school's choice. The first is that Woodtex acoustic panels effectively absorb sound and help reduce reverberation vital given the gym's many hard surfaces and varied roles.

The New Zealand-made, environmentally friendly panels are composed of cement bonded woodwool, forming building sheets that are lightweight and at the same time durable and structurally strong. In a heavy-use sporting environment where high-flying balls could hit the panels, these properties were the products' two other major advantages.
