Project Information

The galleries are housed in the former Bankside Power Station, which was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and built in two stages between 1947 and 1963 which subsequently closed in 1981. The current gallery opened in 2000 and during a recent £45 million refurbishment works at this high profile location the SOUNDEX® C1/2 Performance Acoustic Curtains were suspended from scaffolding to attenuate noise created by a phase of Hydro Demolition. In this very demanding environment the water repellent properties of the SOUNDEX® acoustic screens ensured that their technical properties were not compromised in anyway preventing a potential loss in performance. ​
