Introduction to acoustics
Everywhere you look, new, modern spaces are coming to life and while these open-concept spaces promote communication and collaboration, they also increase one main challenge – noise. Now more than ever going beyond good acoustics is as important as the look, feel and function of a space. And it starts by choosing the right ceiling material to achieve the best level of sound absorption for your space. There’s a lot of noise out there. Take your acoustic design to the optimized level.
What is good acoustic design?
Good acoustics in buildings goes by many names; soundproofing, noise control, noise deadening, sound damping, noise reduction solutions, sound isolation, noise canceling, noise blocking and more. It can be confusing, but it is very important.
The Optimized Acoustics™ approach is simple and it is based on proven acoustical engineering practices.
- Select a ceiling system to optimize acoustic absorption.
- Where needed, use walls or plenum barriers to effectively optimize sound insulation or blocking between rooms.
- Ensure that the background sound level is within the desired range.
This approach results in more than just good acoustics. It provides Optimized Acoustics™ that comply with the standards and achieve the best sound experience at the best price.
