Acoustic Sound Absorbing Panels Minimise Reverberationby Gerald Hynes Sontext Business owner
Acoustic Panels contain a core of sound absorbing Insulation material designed to reduce reflected sound waves, like reverberation. This helps control background noise in interior spaces. The objective behind the use of these sound insulating panels is to enhance speech and communication quality, so that occupants of the space are not subject to uncomfortable noise levels or distorted performance or speech.
Acoustic panels can be made to order, with finishes and dimensions that will accommodate existing wall or ceiling areas, around fittings such as power and air conditioning, and blend seamlessly into the decor of a given space.
How Is Sound Absorbed?
Acoustic panels are manufactured with a facing that is porous to sound waves. Sontext Serenity Acoustic Panels, for example, are faced with open-weave fabrics that allow these sound waves to pass through and be absorbed by the insulation underneath. Sontext Murano Acoustic Timber Panels are supplied with the wood facing perforated with slots, holes or grooves to allow absorption. Without these perforations, timber panels would reflect sound, rather that absorb it.
The Sontext range of acoustic panels comes in a variety of colours, designs and finishes that not only add elegance to allow a room but improve sound quality as well. With professional assistance from Sontext specialists, the area, dimensions, and type of panel can be established to achieve optimum results.
Acoustic panels are effective in controlling noise and absorbing sound that is generated within the premises. When installed, acoustical panels enable the audience to capture clear and understandable speech, presentations, music and amplified sounds.
Variety and Sizes Available
Acoustic panels are available in a large range of sizes and shapes depending on requirements. While standard sizes result in minimal raw material wastage, custom sizes can be tailored and made on order. The thickness of acoustic panels is particularly important, because it affects the sound frequency range absorbed. 25mm thick panels will satisfy requirements for most reverberation problems, but for critical projects, like recording studios and concert halls, thicker panels may be required to absorb low frequency sound. For this reason, Sontext provide test performance data on all their products, which is available on the Sontext website. For assistance contact Sontext specialists.
