What do Acoustical Wall Panels do?
Large, open rooms like churches, auditoriums, and concert halls often have sound issues, with reverberations and echoes lessening the sound quality. It can create a noisy, unpleasant experience and make it difficult to hear, especially if the room is full of different sounds. To manage the sounds in these spaces, we find it advantageous to install acoustic wall panels.
Acoustic wall panels are designed to help control and improve sound quality. They do not act as soundproofing; instead, they help to mitigate background noise, reducing the reverberations and echoes in a room. These panels can absorb or diffuse a room’s sound depending on how they get installed. While they can range in size, shape, and design, all acoustic panels have a similar construction, constructed of a porous material that allows the sound frequencies to enter much like a labyrinth.
Acoustical wall panels have many benefits besides improving the acoustics of a room.
1. Increased Productivity
Sound management is critical for office productivity. Without acoustic sound panels in place, workers can struggle to focus on important phone calls, meetings would lack speech comprehension and understanding which can lead to distraction, misinterpretation, irritation and lack of focus making simple tasks and communication more difficult. Installing panels will help eliminate those issues, therefore increasing employee productivity.
2. Create A More Comfortable Environment
Too much noise in an office or restaurant can be grating and turn people away. By installing acoustic panels, you can significantly cut down on the amount of noise, creating a more comfortable and welcoming environment for guests. They will be able to have conversations without feeling like they need to shout, staff will hear customers more easily, and everyone will have an overall more pleasant experience. Ensuring guests’ comfort means they will stay longer and be willing to return, which can result in more revenue for the business.
3. Create a Safer Environment
In many industrial applications we know that specific machinery can be uncomfortably loud which poses a risk of hearing damage for those operating the machines. Even when hearing damage isn’t at risk, loud noises can create dangerous situations where the employees miss critical instructions or warnings and may lead to an increased likelihood of accidents. Installing acoustic wall panels helps to control sound levels, creating a safer environment for workers with clearer communication and reducing the potential for danger.
These are just three of the additional benefits of acoustic wall panels. They can make a significant difference wherever they get installed, improving much more than just the space’s acoustics.
