Why do we need a acoustical panels?
Broadband acoustic elements are needed when the reverberation time (echo) is higher than the reference level in a certain room. In most cases we use this acoustic element since it can be applied in a wide variety of situations: It dampens the unwanted frequencies from 40Hz to 20,000Hz.
What is NOT a broadband panel in reality?
The small density materials – like foam, styrofoam, acoustic foam – or absorbing materials which don’t absorb sound waves evenly because of their small density are not suitable to function as a panel. These materials generally have an impact on higher frequencies only. When using such materials, we create a non-linear (uneven) acoustic environment: high frequencies become too dull, low frequencies won’t change.
What sort of materials are our broadband Sound absorbers made of?
The maximum stability of our broadband panels is provided by the sturdy wood frame in which we fill controlled quality, non-toxic, 90kg/m3 density, special quality acoustic wool. We cover it with dust emission inhibitor and finally with acoustic velvet.
Broadband acoustic absorbers as home furnishing?
Acoustic elements can be drilled on the wall, however if we don’t like to do so or it is hard to achieve due to the structure of the wall, they can also stand stable on their own feet thanks to their precise design. The easy to clean elastic acoustic velvet which can be ordered in different colours renders a unique, aesthetic look to our panels.
What sort of effects can you expect with our acoustic panels?
At home theatres, when listening to music:
– reduced echo and reverberation,
– strong distortion of buzzing bass eliminated
– bass becoming more detailed and dynamic
In offices, flats, auditoriums:
– improved speech intelligibility
– lower crosstalk to neighbouring rooms
– more relaxed sound environment
The use of premium quality acoustic elements is essential for optimal acoustics. Sound waves flow unobstructed along empty, flat and hard surfaces such as walls and ceilings, creating unwanted standing waves, disturbing echoes. Reflected sounds and increased reverberation time can degrade audio quality. When designing buildings, very rarely, and in the case of older types of real estate, attention is almost never paid to acoustic treatment and construction. Everyday building materials, such as concrete or brick, do not have sound-absorbing properties. Drywall cladding, plaster and wallpaper improve this situation somewhat, but to get the perfect result, we need special equipment developed for acoustic purposes. Even glass or tile surfaces can only reflect high tones. In most cases, post-acoustic repair can only achieve the ideal sound.
High tones are easy to dim
In rooms, offices, studios, almost all everyday objects, furniture and textiles act as sound absorbers, but while they cope easily with high tones, absorbing deeper ranges is a much bigger challenge! Bass sounds that accumulate in excessive amounts significantly reduce the enjoyment of music or movies. The most problematic points in this regard are the corners, as they gather the most deep sounds. Bass-absorbing membranes, bass traps, broadband panels, and corner elements successfully overcome the problems caused by excessive amounts of bass sounds. However, without bass sounds, the sound is not real. If we just focus on damping, we can throw out the baby with the bath water! After all, as a result of over-attenuation, we can only experience a deterioration of the sound experience again.
Why do you need diffusers?
It is for this purpose that acoustic diffusers must be obtained, which not only have a sound-absorbing ability but are also capable of evenly scattering the sounds coming to their surface. Due to their irregular, different depths and mathematically accurate surface, the energy of the sounds is radiated back into smaller parts, in full bandwidth, in a larger space, so we can hear a clearer, more spacious, more understandable and more harmonious sound. Properly selected acoustic elements can, in addition to improving surround sound, also perform a noise-reducing function if necessary. It is also important to talk about the material of the acoustic elements. Many materials, due to their structure, are not suitable for absorbing or scattering sounds evenly. We use high specific gravity and density wood, health-friendly acoustic cotton and anti-dusting acoustic silk to produce these elements.
If the sound-absorbing elements are placed on a wall or ceiling, they can be easily fixed with hangers. Higher weight bass traps with legs can be placed on the floor. Forget the cheap and shoddy materials! Plastic sponges, styrofoam boards and egg boxes are completely unsuitable for improving acoustics.
Without membranes, there is no clear deep sound!
Sound-absorbing membranes begin to vibrate under the influence of sounds passing through their surface, thus slowing down the movement of sounds. The uneven surface of the diffusers is able to reflect sounds at all angles. Broadband panels play a significant role in reducing reverberation time.
Entrust the experts, ask for help!
By online or on-site acoustic measurements, we can determine exactly what and how many acoustic elements a particular room requires, and where it is recommended to place them.
The most important aspect is high quality!
Our acoustic elements are made by hand, we check them regularly. We use only premium quality raw materials to produce our products. Our panels made of laminated furniture board or real wood can be ordered in a wide range of colors and types, we also undertake the creation of individual sizes and designs. Perfect Acoustic products are distinguished and unique in the market by their efficiency and decorative appearance.
