Restaurant Noise Control Sound Absorbing Panels for Restaurant

Looking to solve your noisy restaurant problems?

Background noise in restaurants, cafés and bars can often be so loud it is impossible to hold a conversation and is even enough to put you off your dinner. Hard surfaces such as concrete and glass bounce sound around rooms so it cannot ‘escape’ from the space. As this builds up, we have to talk even louder to be heard by people we may only be sitting opposite, this kind of environment can also be stressful and difficult for staff.

That's where we come in, That Sounds Better offers Ecophon acoustic wall and ceiling panels that are both easy to install and do not require a specialist. These sound-absorbing panels are great at absorbing unwanted noise thanks to their glass wool core, so you’ll no longer need to worry about noise complaints.

Sustainable materials used

Glass wool core made with up to 70% recycled glass

Fire safety approved

All products are tested to fire standard EN 13501-1 and classed A2-s1,d0.

Large range of colours available

A variety of colours to choose from in both ceiling and wall panels

Noise doesn’t create the atmosphere in a restaurant, it's a combination of lighting, service and music, therefore, noise reduction doesn’t mean killing the vibe but absorbing enough of the chatter to appreciate your time there.

Adding appropriate acoustic absorbers to the ceiling, walls or both will absorb excess noise, in turn, increasing your sense of comfort and making the restaurant a more pleasant place to be. Investing in sound absorption panels could be exactly what you need to improve your customer experience. If you want to read more about how acoustic panels will benefit your restaurant click here.

"We chose the Solo Square 1200mm for our Clapham restaurant and have found that they made a huge difference reducing echo which has benefited both customers and staff."- Amy Harris, Head of Marketing at Megan's Restaurant

"We are really happy with the Solo Squares that we installed in our restaurant. They have made a big impact reducing the echo in our small space plus we've had positive feedback from customers now the noise is under more control." -New Coast Kitchen


This depends on the size of your space and the furnishings you have as hard surfaces such as glass, concrete and wood make sound bounce around the space. As a general rule we would suggest between 20-40% of wall space is covered with Akusto™ One on adjacent walls, if you are looking for Solo™ ceiling panels place them above high volume areas, such as tables and bar areas.

Yes, we offer a variety of colours in both our Akusto™ and Solo™ ranges.

Acoustic panels, help reduce reverberation time and absorb excess noise, improving the atmosphere for customers and staff.
