Bandshell floor

Postby niedersteiner » Tue Jul 20, 2004 5:59 pm

I have been asked to help with a design of a bandshell to be built locally. The stage is inteded to be a concrete slab, 3ft high. For musician comfort I suggested incorperating a wood overlay, using pressure treated 2X4 "joists" and 1X6 planknig with 1/4" spaces betweeen. The joists would float on a non degradable "foam", about 1/2'" thick.

My questions are; what is a good foam to use for this? It must be water and light resistant. Are there any acoustic detractions which outweigh the comfort benefits? (I am aware of the helmholtz absorption produced but havn't calculated the frequency yet.) It is intended as a multi use facility; choirs, bluegrass and amplified musicians.

Many thanks,

A coat of this stuff might answer for foot fatigue relief for much less cost that a decking system... and its non-slip as a bonus.

They will send you samples if you contact em via their web site.
