Acoustic Solutions: Wall Panels VS Suspended Ceilings | That Sounds Better

Acoustic Solutions: Wall Panels VS Suspended Ceilings | That Sounds Better

How you control noise may not be something you think about every day; however the acoustics in your home, commercial or restaurant are vital in terms of the comfort and experience of a space. And if you are in a noisy room, you are certainly being affected by it, even if you are not thinking about it. There are a range of design choices which can contribute to the build-up of noise and excessive echo - such as your use of hard flooring, exposed ceilings, large glass elements and clear walls. However, there are simple ways to absorb the excess sound, without compromising on your room’s design.

If you’re looking to improve the sound in your space but you are not sure which one of our solutions to choose, then take a look the comparison of our wall and ceiling solution:

In terms of acoustic qualities, our eco-friendly sound solutions do vary depending on the size and shape you decide on. If you require more in-depth acoustic knowledge regarding each of the individual sizes and shapes – please visit our product data page: Solo Circle, Solo Square and Akusto One

Adding our sound treatment allows the sound that reaches them to be absorbed, minimising echo and reducing the noise level, as well as creating clear communication and reducing stress levels. We would recommend a combination of Solo and Akusto within your space, close to the point where the sound is created (the noisy humans). However, we know this isn’t always possible due to the space and design of your room. If you are using only one solution due to the design of your space, you would require additional panels in your chosen solution in order to increase the amount of absorption.

If you know the dimensions of your room, we can offer you a guideline acoustic performance calculation to see how many panels you need. All we need is accurate room measurements and some basic information about your space. Use our contact form to get in touch and we will send you the form to complete!

Alternatively, you can order few acoustic panels and see what effect they have. We offer free delivery, so you can always order more later on if you’d like to increase the impact.

Please note if you are looking for precise performance information we would recommend you contact a qualified acoustician.
