The answer to this question is very simple. If you're looking for acoustics solutions online, chances are, the noise problem you are facing in your commercial venue is significant enough that acoustic panels are worth the investment. It might be best to brainstorm how much of an issue you perceive the noise to be, and allocate a budget for what you are willing to spend to alleviate that issue. If the noise issue you are facing is substantial it could be causing:
If the consequences of the noise issue are minimal, then it may not be worth investing in high quality acoustic solutions. However, if you suspect you are losing revenue, employee focus, or increasing stress (just to name a few potential issues) then acoustic panels are likely a good investment.
Put simply, yes! Our acoustic panels are exceedingly effective at reducing noise, reverberation, echo, and other noise producing problems you may face in your space. An acoustic panels' effective varies significantly between brands and product ranges. It is always good to check the noise reduction coefficient (NRC) in the data or specification sheet of each acoustic panel you are interested in. At Acoustics by Specfurn, all of our acoustic panels have highly rated noise reduction properties. Be sure to check the data sheet of each product to determine its noise control potential:
Acoustic panels are designed to diffuse, absorb, or reflect noise in a room.
There are various ways an acoustic panel works, but generally they work based on the absorption of sound. When sound waves bounce off the hard surfaces in a room and create an echo. This is because a hard surface does little to reduce or diffuse the speed of the soundwave, meaning the full soundwave is reflected back into the room. This is what makes it difficult to hear someone speaking if there are hard surfaces everywhere, like in a tiled bathroom. The acoustic panel soaks up these sound waves so they don't keep bouncing around the room, making it easier to hear conversations and reducing discomfort.
The three main types of acoustic panels are:
Absorptive panels – these are usually made from a soft material such as cotton or polyester and are designed to absorb sound waves. They operate by allowing the sound energy to pass through the soft material, where the sound interacts with the absorbing material, effectively converting sound into a very low amount of heat energy. Absorptive panels are often used in offices and classrooms to reduce echo and reverberation.
Diffusive panels – these are usually made from unusually shaped designs that, rather than absorbing the noise, defuse or scatter the sound waves in different directions. The reason this reduces sound is because the sound energy is continually diminished the more surfaces it is reflected from, thus diminishing as it passes through air and interacts with multiple reflective surfaces. Absorbing panels can be used in conjunction with diffusive panels for a doubly effective result.
Reflective panels – these are usually made from a hard material such as metal or glass and are designed to reflect sound waves away from the surface. Reflective panels are often used in recording studios, performance venues, and other places where complete soundproofing is necessary. These are the least commonly used (and least effective) acoustic panels for commercial venues.
Acoustic panels can be easily mounted on the roof or walls. Depending on which product you choose, some acoustic panels are specifically designed to absorb & diffuse noise from a ceiling mounted position. Generally, we recommend purchasing enough acoustic material to allow for wall and ceiling acoustic treatment, but should you only be able to choose one, ceiling acoustics are very effective for most rooms and venues.
A common combination is to use architectural 3D acoustic tiles on the walls, and hanging acoustic baffles on the roof - but the sky really is the limit when it comes to our acoustics range.
Acoustic panels for walls work superbly well in most commercial spaces. If you have a room with hardwood floors, concrete walls, or lots of windows, acoustic panels will help to reduce the amount of echo and reverberation in the space. Acoustic panels are also ideal for commercial office spaces, conference rooms, and reception areas. If you have a room that is specifically designed for music listening or recording, acoustic panels can help to improve the quality of sound in the space.
How Many Panels Do I Need?
The number of acoustic panels you will need will depend on the size of the room and the amount of noise you would like to reduce. In general, you will need one panel for every 4-5 square feet of wall space. If you are trying to reduce a considerable amount of noise, you may need more panels. Our team can help you determine how many panels you will need for your specific space and needs. Acoustic panels also exist for ceilings. Ceiling acoustic panels are a great way to reduce noise in a room with a high ceiling. If you have a room with a lot of echo, such as a gymnasium or an auditorium, acoustic panels can help to reduce the amount of reverberation in the space.
