Clarke Infinity has been shortlisted as a finalist within the EMEA Home Cinema category of the 2020 CEDIA Awards for its unique El Padrino home cinema installation, featuring a Barrisol Clim stretch ceiling – a first for the UK. The Essex-based outfit designed the bespoke cinema room to include a one-of-a-kind stretch ceiling to deliver perfect acoustics and provide a sumptuous, luxurious finish.
The specialist perforated stretched fabric evenly distributes the air, ensuring the ceiling becomes a diffuser for any sound coming from the air conditioning – as well as keeping any unsightly equipment out of view. The Barrisol Clim ceiling ensures you cannot see or feel the HVAC; you cannot feel it because the velocity in the occupied area is around 0.2m/s (and human beings cannot feel the air movement when the velocity is less than 0.3m/s) and you cannot hear it due to the unique design – yet it delivers an aesthetically pleasing finish and allows the air conditioning to keep the room at the perfect temperature.
Simon Clarke, Owner and Founder of Clarke Infinity, said: “The CEDIA Awards spotlight the best the industry has to offer, and it is exciting to be part of it. The awards are a great way for us to showcase big projects and the great things that Clarke can achieve with their clients’ needs in mind. We’re delighted to have been shortlisted, especially with a project as unique as the El Padrino cinema.”
The winner will be announced at the 2020 CEDIA awards ceremony this October.
