Timber Frame Isolation System – Farrat CineTIMBER PRO

  • Commercial cinemas.
  • Lecture theatres.
  • Home cinemas.
  • Existing structures.


Timber frame acoustic isolation system, designed for lightweight commercial multiplex cinema stadia seating frames.

Features and benefits:

  • Based on composite stadia decking made from plywood, dense plasterboard and in some cases cement particle board.
  • Able to achieve very high levels of sound insulation without using concrete.
  • Designed to achieve similar levels of sound insulation and vibration isolation as typical concrete tiered seating structures by inducing additional mass.
  • Mass can be induced by hanging undercroft ceilings from the structure and/ or pre-compressing the CineTIMBER PRO isolators.
  • Although CineTIMBER PRO is based on a timber frame, it does not require one and is used regularly as a lightweight steel frame/ timber stadia hybrid.
  • Warranty: Up to 10-years.


  • Commercial cinemas.
  • Lecture theatres.
  • Home cinemas.
  • Existing structures.
