Auralex Enhances Dining Experience at English-Styled Restaurant and Pub in Indianapolis

Acoustic Problems Tackled From Floor to Ceiling

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, recently added better acoustics to the menu at Chatham Tap Restaurant & Pub. The English-styled restaurant and pub in Indianapolis, was recently retrofitted with Auralex ELiTE™ C44 ProPanels™. The ELiTE C44 ProPanels help absorb additional sound energy throughout the noisy pub, making speech intelligibility clearer and providing a memorable dining experience for all the senses.

Diners gave Chatham Tap Restaurant & Pub great reviews, but complained that the pub was so loud it was difficult to have a normal conversation without shouting to be heard. When the room was measured and examined for reverberation time, it was determined that hanging absorption panels from the ceiling and placing smaller custom panels underneath the chairs would make a significant impact on the noise level.

“We’ve seen an apparent change in how loud it is in our place,” says Jim Ailes, co-owner, Chatham Tap Restaurant & Pub. “I’ve been told on numerous occasions that the panels blend in with the ceiling, which is exactly what we were looking to do. We specifically selected a fabric color that wouldn’t stand out. Our guests don’t notice any difference to our decor, but they definitely hear a difference in the sound level right away.”

Alles, who is also a contractor, worked closely with Auralex on a plan to improve the acoustics of the space, which has plaster walls, a hardwood floor and some brick on the walls. Auralex absorption panels were used from the ceiling to the floor in the 70-seat, 1,200-square-foot room. “There are panels on the ceiling, but then we also have 1′x1′ foot squares that are glued to the underside of our chairs, so the echo from the floor is also deadened.”

Auralex’s ELiTE C44 ProPanel is a 4′x4′ absorption panel with a 2″ thickness, providing a cost-effective and professional broadband treatment option when a significant amount of coverage is needed. Its overall NRC of 1.05 makes it the perfect choice for controlling many common acoustical problems at a wide range of frequencies. C44 ProPanels are available in sandstone fabric and are typically available for immediate shipment.

Founded in 2007 with the intention of bringing a pub in the tradition of the English “local” to the Chatham-Arch neighborhood of Indianapolis, Chatham Tap Restaurant and Pub offers a wide-ranging menu and a dizzying array of draught and bottled beer. Also, serious soccer fans can catch all the English Premier League, Champions League, World Cup or European Championship events on the many big-screen televisions. The pub recently opened a second location in Indianapolis, where live rock bands perform. Alles also plans on installing Auralex acoustical treatments in the new location.
