Vox Cinemas, Oman

Majid Al Futtaim Ventures owned VOX Cinemas' 10-screen cinema in Muscat City Centre (MCC) is the largest in Oman and was developed in tandem with Qurum City Centre's (QCC) 7-screen. Both venues opened in 2014.

The following Gyproc systems were specified and used in the project:

  • GypWall AUDIO comprising a twin frame of Gypframe 150 I 90 with 3 x 15mm FireStop boards plus 1 x 15mm DuraLine board to each side of the framing having a total thickness of only 450mm.
  • 70mm Jack-Point screws were also specifically developed for this project.
  • Special Glasroc boards were used in the deflection head design at the corrugated roof to maintain fire and structural performance.
  • Gyproc training sessions and weekly site visits by the Gyproc team ensured a successful build that met all the clients requirements.

Challenges

  • Meeting the demanding acoustic performance requirement of Rw 76dB.
  • Designing partitions to reach heights of up to 12.5 meters.
  • Achieving a secure, 120 minute fire rated deflection head to the underside of the corrugated.

Outcome

With this cost effective and high performance solution, the Gyproc Technical Team were able to provide both warranties and test reports for the 120 minutes fire rated partition, giving complete peace of mind to the client.
