Acoustic panels come in many shapes, sizes, materials, thicknesses and densities; but they all have the same job- to absorb sound.
We offer guidance on all types of panels and offer unbiased advise to help you find the right product.
The main materials used in the manufacture of acoustic panels are:
– PET (Polyester) – High in recycled content, lightweight and fully customisable. Autex Cube is an example of a polyester acoustic panel. They come in a range of colours and can be cut into shapes, applied as a full wall covering, used as pinboards and so much more
– Glass wool – Another product with high percentage of recycled material used in their manufacture. Lightweight and durable, glass wool panels are either painted or wrapped in fabric (Ecophon have an excellent range of Glass wool wall panels, in many shapes and sizes)
All these panels can be fixed to the wall in a number of ways, all designed to suit the space in which are being installed. Ranging from peel-and-stick solutions, to wooden battens, spray adhesive and clips with channels, installation is our expertise and will be delighted to help you make an informed choice
The primary purpose of acoustic panels is sound absorption. This is very different to sound blocking which requires a very different solution. Put simply, the panels will improve the sound quality of the room they are in, but will not stop unwanted noise from exiting or entering the room, so they’re no good for you if you’re looking for information on how to block out noisy neighbours! If you looking for advice on either issue, please get in touch with our acoustics team
Choosing the right acoustic panel is not always easy, but we are always on hand to help – whether you are looking to improve the acoustics in your school hall, scout hut, open plan office, home cinema, meeting room or any other setting. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions at all
