Next Stop: Detroit

Posted by Flyhouse on May 12, 2017 9:14:14 AM

The Motor City. Birthplace of Motown. Home to the only floating Post Office in the U.S. Call it what you want, but Flyhouse is setting up shop for a few months in Detroit for a new arena project.

The Little Caesar’s Arena, scheduled to open September 2017, will serve as the new home of the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons, and other entertainment events.

By the time the puck drops for the Red Wings, Flyhouse will have installed over 100,000 square feet of horizontal and vertical acoustical lapendary panels along with the upper masking, half-house, and blackout curtains for the entire arena.

[Project Recap] St. Viator High School Acoustical Drapes

Posted by Flyhouse on Aug 8, 2016 8:30:00 AM

Tucked away in the suburbs of Chicago, Saint Viator High School is a Catholic secondary school with approximately 1,000 students. The building, originally established in 1961, remained virtually untouched over the years until the 1990s when a series of building upgrades took place.

In recent years, another round of upgrades took place. As part of the upgrade, Saint Viator High School wanted to improve the acoustics of both their choir and band room. While the rooms were functional and provided the needed resources for the choir and band, the sound quality needed a slight adjustment.

In order to accomplish this, Flyhouse installed three manual acoustical drapes on the walls of the rooms. Also as part of the acoustic assistance, a manual bi-part, 25oz thick Charisma Rose Brand acoustical curtain was installed. The curtains hang roughly 10’ above the finished floor and had to be adjusted during installation due to an already installed HVAC system in the room.

While Flyhouse wasn’t around for the first rehearsal after the installation, we are certain the sound quality was impressive.
