Hear every cheer

To make sure no one misses a moment of the action in the London Olympic stadium, we helped a roof to retain sound

In any stadium, acoustic performance is critical to the experience of athletes and spectators. And in an urban context, it’s also essential to making sure audiences can enjoy themselves without disturbing the peace of the neighbourhood. In the high-profile renovation of the UK Olympic Park Stadium, stone wool provided the perfect answer.

It helped the new roof retain sound within the stadium to create an unforgettable experience for athletes and spectators – without affecting the surrounding environment. As well as improving acoustic performance, stone wool is naturally fire-resistant, helping to keep many thousands of visitors safe every year.
