Sound and Noise Reduction Panels
Acoustic sound-absorbing panels for your walls and ceilings
Installing sound-absorbing panels on your walls and ceilings in your business achieves so much more than reducing noise in your workspace.
Acoustic panels will enhance the quality of sound in your office space by absorbing excess office noises, like fans clicking and printers beeping, and eliminating voices echoing throughout your office space.
How do you make acoustic sound-absorbing panels?
Sound is a form of kinetic energy, and acoustic sound-absorbing panels are compressed materials designed to trap this kinetic energy. Removing sound completely is not feasible, however sound absorbing-panels absorb soundwaves and reduce the amount of sound present in a space.
The average office space has noise levels that range from 60-80 decibels, which is well above the recommended level of 45-55 decibels. Acoustic panels help bring the noise levels below the recommended level to reduce employee distractions and increase productivity.
Acoustic panels can be constructed from a range of materials including polyester, naturally occurring minerals, timber and fabric. For those with a sustainable focus, many acoustic panels contain recycled materials and are recyclable.
What is the best material for sound absorption?
A wall is usually constructed from dense materials that will reflect noise and make it reverberate around the room, which is not ideal for a quiet work environment. Acoustic panels use softer, porous materials like foam and fabric which absorb this sound, reduce echoes and reverberation and effectively lower background noise.
Polyester is a commonly used sound-absorbing material. Polyester is very versatile and can be created into many different forms of absorptive products, including wall panels, ceiling panels and baffles. Most acoustic polyester products are made from partly recycled PET, making them an environmentally-friendly and sustainable option.
Acoustic mineral wool is a useful sound-reducing material, commonly used as an insulation behind a more decorative finish. For example behind fabric wrapped panels, or perforated timber boards.
