Escalator Handrail Rubber

Postby tonymite » Thu Jul 10, 2008 12:12 pm

here's a response I just got from EHC Global re: Escalator Handrail Rubber :

Unfortunatley deflection is not something we measure in the industry - my engineers have suggested though that a 1/2" thickness x 2" wide strip of rubber with a 70 shore hardness would be best for your application.

Attatched is PDF of Regupol specs. including deflection - Even though it looks as thoughI'm NOT going to touch it ( will not be raising bearers onto any rubber ).

My issue now is the slight ' hollow ' sound I get when I stomp on the floor.

The floor is sturdy as the floor joists are 450 mm apart on concrete stumps.

The fact that it's raised approx 400 mm off the ground allows for a hollow type resonance - nothing major... but still there none the less.

Will this pose any problems?
Will this hollowness become part of my room sound?
Will it be acentuated and transmited to the mic via the mic stands on the floor ?
I don't think it''l be a problem other than drums.
Could it even add to the drum sound - like make it sound bigger ??
A drum riser could also be the go - no ?


I have been told to pack the sub-floor with insulation to minimise
" bass-bleed " which will apparently only amplify the resonance.

I thought about filling the subfloor with sand - maybe use a compressor as in sandblasting technique to push the sand through - but that's an awful lotta sand ( 300-400 mm ).

I also thought of floatong a floor ontop of the existing floor and filling it with sand / insulation but I'm not sure a 50-100 mm layer of sand will be heavy enough to stop the entire floor from resonating.

Any Comments ?

Hey guys,

here's a layout for Post Production room I've planned for upstairs bathroom.

Minimal structual changes - ie: working with what I've got.

( sorry- couch isnt displayed in opposite corner to 02R / desk / workstation ).


How would YOU do it?



Any comments/suggestions appreciated.

Peace !

Symmetry FAIL!

I'd prefer the rig be square to the room. is that a practical goal given the circumstances?

So would I - but how do you suggest I face the ISO/vocal booth?
Is it even important to have that line of site?

I can have the booth behind me - if it's in front, I'd be loosing even more space.


Keep 'em coming...

turn around and face the square end of the room [with appropriate treatments added]... and get a web cam for the booth.

would that work for you?

I too thought of the ' cam' approach but one of my 'anal' friends kept steering me away from it saying there's another soution there somewhere... I must be giving him too much credit haha:)
I'm just curious as to how important it is to have that physical' line of sight'. I'd much rather have the length of the room too and have the symetry. I'll have another go... feel free to add any comments/sketches :))

That looks like a pefectly reasonable way to use the room to me.

Hi people,

believe it or not... I'm still working on this thing and would just like to run it by you all for any suggestions.

CONTROL ROOM #2/MEDIUM TRACKING ROOM will be leased long term (by a friend who will give me access to all of his analog synth's, guitars, amps, pedals, time based mix effects such as spring/plate reverbs, phasers, flangers, delays etc.. ) but only used half of the week and will double up as a medium sized tracking room.

This way we don't double up on any equipment and it allows me to focus on my microphone collection etc...

I may even be able to add natural light in the center (LARGE TRACKING ROOM) if not in all rooms.

Also, do I really need high ceilings in ISO BOOTH at the cost of office space upstairs??


Any comments much appreciated.

Thanks.
