How many acoustic panels do I need to noticeably improve room acoustics?
The number of ceiling or wall panels required differs from room to room. To determine how many acoustic elements you need for your room, a calculation of the acoustic situation is necessary. The acoustic app can give a first impression of the sound situation. Probably the most accurate room acoustics app available, it measures sound and noise for all relevant frequency ranges.
In any case, we offer you a professional calculation of the need for room acoustic optimisation by our acoustics professionals. We will send you the calculation based on pictures and the room parameters such as the dimensions, furnishings, etc. with explanations, pictures and our offer including installation. In some cases, a personal consultation makes more sense than a pure calculation. If you have any questions regarding the calculation of room acoustics, please contact us.
How do the sound absorbers work?
In room acoustics, sound propagates as an airborne sound wave and encounters surfaces on the walls, ceiling and floor that either reflect, transmit or absorb the sound. The objectiv AluFrame Smart sound absorbers are made of a specially compacted, highly absorbent PET fleece which, due to its nature, increases the absorbent surface of the room many times over. Through friction of the air molecules, the sound energy is converted into heat in the absorber. This process is called dissipation.
Why are optimised room acoustics important?
Good room acoustics offer many advantages. The regulated noise level increases physical and mental well-being. Stress caused by noise is decreased, the ability to perform and concentrate is increased. The duration of the noise exposure and the strength of the noise level are decisive. Noise affects the nervous system and is thus often linked to exhaustion, sleep disorders and heart problems.
In a commercial context, improved room acoustics noticeably increase the ability to concentrate and the health of employees. Thus, the reduction of noise levels and the improvement of speech intelligibility contribute significantly to the perception of a professional environment.
