Soundproof marquee roofs with acoustic linings

Designed to provide control over sound sources getting in and out of your marquee, our acoustic lining range provides sound absorption up to Rw32db.

A marquee is a fantastic option for many venues throughout the UK and Europe thanks to their large span and portability however due to the lightweight nature, any sound generated, from people or music systems, emits out of the structure. This issue presents a number of problems for venues, especially those located within close proximity to residential dwellings.

To circumvent problems associated with this, venues are recognising the benefits of treating their structures by utilising acoustic linings manufactured in our Sussex HQ, resulting in the ability to gain planning permission, increased operational hours and the reduction in disturbance to neighbours.

Designed to control entertainment noise, our system is successfully used in a variety of different venues through the UK and Europe, including:

how does the acoustic lining work?

Employing composite materials our Marquee Acoustic Linings achieve the two key functions of soundproofing, attenuation and absorption.

By adding mass we’re able to increase attenuation, this means we remove energy from the sound and lessen how much passes in or out of the marquee.

We use absorbing materials, lowering the reflected noise and thus improving both the quality and level of sound inside the marquee.

Combining these composites we’ve created the most effective way to decrease the impact of noise for a marquee.

what is sound attenuation?

Sound attenuation, also often referred to as acoustic attenuation, is a reduction in sound experienced when something has caused a barrier that diminishes the energy of the soundwaves and therefore the volume of the sound.


Sound attenuation can be as a result of utilising acoustic linings and soundproofing insulation within otherwise non-soundproof structures.

What our clients say

“The background ambient noise levels in Shilstone’s surrounding Devon countryside are exceptionally low and presented some real challenges which DAS were able to address with real efficiency. Their whole package from Assessment to after sales/servicing is brilliant; and to cap it, through following advice from DAS regarding use of the Zone Array Shilstone did not receive one music related noise complaint during 2018!”
