Heraklith® Wood Wool chosen for prestigious Dubai Entertainment venue
Rixos Premium Dubai describes itself as the most stylish urban hotspot located in the heart of Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Residence. It is a trendy lifestyle hotel where iconic design meets contemporary luxury, providing a stage for exclusive and glamorous lifestyle experiences.
The award-winning Lock Stock & Barrel is one of the main venues in the hotel and is a party bar complex that focuses on live music and sporting events. It incorporates a casual dining concept on the second floor, with an urban carnival feel inspired by food trucks and street food from around the world.
Providing more than 800 square metres of entertainment space, it is two and a half times bigger than the original Lock, Stock & Barrel in Barsha Heights. It includes a stage, 11 screens, pool tables and a veranda overlooking the beach.
The challenge was to provide long-lasting materials with pleasing aesthetics that would complement the futuristic look and feel of the venue. They also need to combine good acoustics with good insulation.
The solution was to use Heraklith® Wood Wool insulation panels which provide a high quality and attractive finish at the same time as having good sound absorption and insulation properties.
It was also extremely important to provide a solution that provides an A2 fire classification and high fire resistance properties in such an entertainment venue.
The open surface structure of the Heraklith® panels ensure excellent acoustic properties and because they are manufactured from natural and sustainable materials, they provide a particularly eco-friendly solution. All the panels were made from certified wood.
It is this combination of features that make Heraklith® Wood Wool insulation an outstanding choice for the insulation of bars and restaurants
The boards are available in a wide array of colours and finishes and are resistant to the physical damage that can result from day-to-day use.
