Principles of good acoustics
Any soft, porous acoustical material absorbs sound waves to some degree, reducing reverberation time.
Sound is energy, and to prevent this energy from propagating further, acoustic panels convert this energy into heat through friction. The absorption quotient (NRC) of a product determines the level and quality of absorption. Typical examples of absorption products are panels to be fixed to walls or ceilings, such as RENE, MILETO or PAUL.
It consists of reducing sound transmission within a space.
To reduce the volume of sound transmitted in a space, typically vertical elements that act as a barrier are used, either hanging from the ceiling or directly placed on the floor. Such solutions can come in the form of hanging panels such as our PAUL, partition panels such as SAMOS or screen desks such as UMA.
Along with absorption, sound attenuation has a positive impact on speech intelligibility. There is no doubt that a quieter space improves concentration and, in general, offers a better experience for employees.
Through diffusion, sound waves that could not be absorbed by acoustic treatment are dissipated evenly throughout the space, producing a vivid and clear sound. This effect is achieved by using irregular shapes or by placing acoustic panels at different levels. Our PAUL and MILETO panels offer fixing systems at different wall or ceiling spacings to achieve this effect.
