Clark Door provides custom door solutions for Bloomsbury Theatre

Clark Door Limited as Acoustic & Fire Rated Sliding Door and Acoustic & Fire Rated Hinged Doors

 The Bloomsbury Theatre first opened in 1968 and showcases the best of comedy, dance, music and theatre.

 

As part of the Transforming UCL programme, in 2019, a major renovation project updated the magnificent main auditorium to have more than 500 comfortable seats, as well as the intimate Bloomsbury Studio. Nicholas Hare Architects were appointed as lead consultant to undertake the refurbishment with the Main Contractor Overbury and Charcoalblue as the Acoustic Consultant.

 

 Clark Door Limited were awarded the contract to supply and install the Rw50dB and 60-minute Fire Rated Single Leaf Horizontal Sliding Stage Door. The doors were installed according to the client’s requirements and the Site Manager has said: “The fire and acoustic sliding door allows us to seal off the workshop at the side of the stage from the main stage area. This is required for two reasons – first, it allows us to use the workshop whilst a performance is going on without fear of making noise but more importantly it allows us to comply with the regulations relating to theatres in terms of fire hazard and mitigation. It really is an elegant solution which achieves both.”

 

Clark Door also provided Single and Double Leaf Steel Hinged Doors on the site. These doors had a 60-minute Fire Rating and were acoustically rated up to Rw50dB.
