Properties of the sound absorbing panel:
Inside our panels we place 90kg/m3 acoustic wool into a sturdy wood construction.
The acoustic wool is developed especially for this purpose thus it is non-toxic.
The surface of the panel is covered with acoustic velvet which also protects against dust emission.
sound absorbing panels is needed in those places where the reverberation time (echo) is higher than the reference level.
Colours of our panels:
In 16 different colours.
Wipe it with slightly wet cloth.
What is it good for and where to place it?
In which area the Sound absorbing panel betters other products?
We tried to create such an acoustic panel by which we can treat the entire bandwidth without over damping the higher frequencies.
Since it destroys the unwanted bass from 40Hz we will hear more detailed and controlled bass while higher frequencies will remain airier and more spacious.
The sound absorbing properties of the Classic broadband panel:
It dampens the unwanted sound waves from 40Hz to 20,000Hz.
All of our products are continuously measured and tested.
Composition of the sound absorbing panel:
The sound absorbing panels are a series of acoustic panels covered by high density acoustic velvet developed for applications where excellent acoustic performance is necessary and the too long reverberation is a huge problem.
The broadband acoustic panels made of high-density acoustic wool of 90kg/m3 have a density up to 8 times the density of typical foam panels in order to ensure the most balanced sound absorption in the audio listening frequencies.
We insert the acoustic wool into a 2cm thick wooden frame. That is why they can be installed very stable. Each acoustic panel is wrapped in a microparticulate acoustic velvet which is available in 16 different colours.
The installation of sound absorbing panel is very easy.
The great trick of the acoustics is that if we leave some space behind the broadband acoustic panel we will increase the absorption of the bass.
We can hang the broadband panels as easily as a picture frame.
We use the most practical one from the various ways of installation, which is easy to install even without expertise. We provide each of our acoustic panels with pre-drilled holes in which you can easily screw the hook bolts that you have received with the sound absorption panel.
Then you must drill a hole into the wall in which you screw a bolt which is also a hook bolt but not round shaped but a 90-degree bolt. Then you can easily hang the acoustic panel that you have purchased on this hook.
If it is possible leave gap between the wall and the sound absorbing panel. For example, if we leave 10cm between the wall and a 10cm thick broadband acoustic panel the absorption of sounds below 200Hz will double. You should not waste this absorption of bass. You can manage the same by hanging it from the ceiling. The only difference is that the gap there is not as disturbing as on the wall.
We cannot provide wall-plug, chain or bolt with the product as the wall structures are different everywhere and need completely different fixation.
Types of sound absorbing panel:
We offer broadband panels in 5 different sizes and 2 different thickness. The thickness of 6 cm enables the designers to defeat the fluttering echo, which significantly shortens the ability to concentrate in a workplace, cheaper and not too strikingly e.g. in offices or switchboard rooms.
We advise the thickness of 11cm or even thicker (e.g. Cube bass trap) acoustic panels for musical installations, theatres, cinemas, or studios where the sound must be absorbed in higher volume and in full bandwidth.
Placement of the sound absorbing panel:
Actually, the placement of the panels is an application issue. For example, the bigger absorption can make benefit from the advantages of a studio while the lobby or the restaurant of a hotel functions well with a minimal treatment.
As you may have certainly noticed most people do not often cover the rooms – even the studios – from floor to ceiling. Most people like listening to music among relatively vital and natural circumstances. That ensures for us – for the people – the relaxing and natural spaciousness. If the rooms are too much treated such as an anechoic chamber we will lose the spaciousness and feel it dull.
Also, the positioning of the panels will change depending on the room. For example, simply mounting the panels on the wall in a restaurant or office will improve the conversation and the sound of computers. In such cases the positioning is usually based on practice, for example where wall surfaces are available. In certain cases, people prefer the smoother or more balanced approach by distributing the absorption panels in order to ensure the same calm environment for everyone. A good example of that is conference rooms.
People prefer placing the more developed panels in the most sophisticated critical listening positions. The most frequent configuration is known as dead end or live end where one end of the room has higher absorption percent than the other one. In a studio rather the source end can be treated while in bigger rooms such as theatres rather the back of the room can be treated.
There are numerous acoustic tricks available to make the acoustic installation simpler and more efficient:
Mounting the sound absorbing panel at ear level
The first simple trick is to mount the broadband acoustic panels at ear level. This is efficient especially if they are in smaller rooms such as home theatres, classrooms, conference rooms or studios. The advantage is that they are kept away from the chairs and the people walking along the chairs which may damage the panels by accident.
Treatment of parallel surfaces
Another trick is related to parallel wall surfaces. Most of the rooms are rectangular shape. That means that the huge rooms have two parallel walls. The sound is very directional – especially in high frequencies – which makes it to be diffused upstairs as a flashlight. Two parallel wall surfaces are needed to maintain the fluttering echo. If it treats only one the echo will be reflected quickly.
Leaving a space between the panels.
As the sound is able to penetrate the side ends of the panels the space left between them usually increases the absorption. Therefore, unless you try to cover a room completely, you can save money by leaving a free space between the panels.
Use the advantages of corners
As the sound spreads sphere-like, while it goes away from the source the panels can easily trap it by “capturing” it before it returns to the room. If you treat a wall or a wall surface in a corner between the wall and the ceiling, you can actually make benefit twice from the performance.
Use of the ceiling in case of occupied walls.
If there are no walls available the ceiling can be a good alternative for sound absorption. For example, in a restaurant or a hotel lobby with big windows the wall surface can be occupied. The sound absorbing panel can be hanged from the ceiling above the noisy areas. ?
Those who want to add a decorative element to the room can use the 3D acoustic panel. If they chose these rounded, semi-circular panels which can be combined with rectangles and squares, they will create acoustic windows and art forms while they manage the sound as well.
The next, most important set of questions can be summarised mechanically:
In other words, how easy to handle it and to mount it on the wall? What about durability? Service-life? What about removal and cleaning up?
If you have ever tried to remove the glue caused by a foam from you walls you may know how challenging it is. If not, you will be surprised. Repairing the damage caused by glues is usually more expensive than the cost of the panels.
In other words, how easy to handle it and to mount it on the wall?
On the back of each of our sound absorbing panel installation including membranes there are pre-drilled holes.
In which you can easily screw your wooden screw-hooks packed with the acoustic panel, without any effort. You must hang the other hook (not included in our product) that is drilled and bolted in the wall onto this hook. You have to simply hang any of our sound absorption panels onto it.
If you want to hang it from the ceiling it will not be a complicated task, it works the same way as with hanging on the wall the only difference is that it is advisable to buy a tiny and thin chain, fishing line or plaited wire. In this case there is no problem even if the distances between the holes do not match as the wire is able to be adapted to the hook on the sound absorbing panel.
What about durability?
If you prevent our acoustic panels from physical impacts: blows, drops, etc. it will function forever because thanks to the hard, wooden structure our sound absorbing panels cannot be deformed. The acoustic silk coating, leather coating or the printed acoustic silk do not fade and do not lose their colour. Of course, you have to protect it from the sunshine as in case of all textile fabrics.
If anybody has ever tried to restore the wall after affixing “acoustic” foam on it he/she will know that repairing the two tiny holes left from our acoustic panels is a piece of cake. If we consider only that issue the result of the foam or styrofoam thought to be very cheap will be significantly more expensive than our sound absorption panels. The glue used for the foams is usually more expensive than the foam itself. Not to mention the complete wall renovation and painting of the room left behind.
Cleaning of the sound absorbing panel:
You can wipe any of our products with slightly wet cloth.
Before choosing the acoustic panel and the colour it is advisable to take into account the “fastidiousness” of the colour of the material. Unfortunately, the light colours (only textile) will get dirty sooner, thus they can become very ugly due to circumstances beyond our control, the spot will not disappear even if it is washed off. It is advisable to choose a darker acoustic silk in the dusty rooms.
