Acoustic panel coverage needed to overcome the noise reverberation problem in a room?
Some basic needs to consider:
• size of the room
• type of noise that needs to be absorbed and the Hz frequency to provide clarity and quality of sound, reduce noise transfer and reverberation.
The thicker the panel = more noise absorbed especially the lower frequency (bass or industrial noise) and less coverage is needed.
Average NRC guide (the average % of noise absorbed overall) on materials supplied by The Silencer which are Australian made and tested, information can be found in the data sheets section of the web site.
7mm = 30%
12mm = 35%
25mm = 80%
50mm = 100%
100mm = 100% (+)
Air gaps will improve the NRC.
Thinner material for ceiling and wall coverings or made into larger feature panels, and some materials printable.
25mm is ideal for ceiling and wall panels of any type including fabric wrapped, framed images, stretched canvas,
50mm is ideal for halls and large rooms with lots of noise and where low frequencies are an issue (bass traps also help) like bands playing, loud music or industrial equipment.
100mm is ideal for wall infill, behind perforated panels
As a guide only for general applications aim for 30 to 70% coverage. Please seek the advice of an acoustic consultant if an acoustic evaluation is required.
