A Guide to Acoustic Wall Materials08 September 2021
If you’re looking to create a quiet space in your home, commercial or educational environment then there are many acoustic solutions to choose from.
Improving acoustics involves controlling the way sound is reflected, absorbed and diffused by surfaces. This helps to improve the quality and feel of a space.
So, what are Acoustic wall materials?
Acoustic wall materials are purposefully designed to effectively reduce noise, reverberation and echo through absorbing sound.
Wall and window coverings reduce the amount of sound reflecting off window glass and hard wall surfaces. Heavy curtains and draperies that hang to the floor help to muffle sound, reducing echo and ambient noise.
As well as working to create a better sound experience, acoustic wall materials add to the aesthetics of your space.
What types of acoustic wall materials are available?
There are a wide variety of Acoustic wall materials to suit your space, interests and budget, including:
- Acoustic Panels
- Acoustic Tiles
- Fabric coverings
- Felt coverings
Acoustic wall materials can be visually dynamic, while providing a high-performing acoustic solution. Transform the look, feel and sound of your space in one hit.
Absorbing sound can also be achieved by using softer materials like curtains, plants, wall hangings, fabric-covered chairs, and carpet throughout your space. The types of furniture and decorative finishes in your space can also influence its acoustics.
Acoustics are a complex science, best left up to the professionals. If you are looking to improve your space, getting an acoustic appraisal is the perfect way to determine your space’s current acoustic performance and find a solution.
