How many acoustic panels do you need in your space?

Finding the right number of acoustic panels when designing your silence

Last week, the Avenue Interior Systems team discussed the effectiveness of acoustic panels; how they’re a versatile noise control solution that excels at absorbing sound within a room. This week, we’re going to delve deeper into another common question: How many panels do you need in your space?

As we know, unwanted noise can be a real nuisance in an office or classroom. Acoustic panels offer a simple yet effective solution to tackle this problem.

Here are some key points to consider when determining the number of acoustic panels required for your space.

1) Identify your room type

The type of room you’re treating will significantly affect the number of panels you need. Consider factors such as the room’s size, purpose, and layout. For instance, a cinema or multi-purpose hall may require more extensive treatment than a standard office or consult room.

2) Get professional advice

While general guidelines are available, consulting a professional – like the team at Avenue – is by far the best way to accurately assess your acoustic needs. A professional can consider various factors specific to your space and provide tailored recommendations.

3) Look at all factors

Several factors influence the number of panels installed, including the room’s objective, size, panel type, aesthetics, placement, and your budget. Understanding these factors will allow you to make informed decisions and achieve the best results.

4) Consider the size of the room

The room’s size also influences the number of panels you’ll need. Smaller rooms typically require fewer panels compared to larger spaces with higher ceilings.

6) Choose the right panel type

Different panel materials offer varying levels of sound absorption. Consider the type of panel that best suits your space and acoustic requirements.

7) Consider the aesthetics you’re looking for

Acoustic panels come in various styles and designs, allowing you to choose options that complement your space’s aesthetics.

8) Remember that panel placement is critical

Placement of the panels is so important for effective sound absorption. Explore different placement options to find the best solution for your room.
