Noise is an unwanted sound. Restaurants, conference rooms, transportation lobbies, and sports complexes (to name a few) all suffer from background noise, making it difficult to hear or understand people speaking.
The introduction of any mesh fabric into the space will improve acoustics. However, if the primary objective is to impact the acoustics dramatically, we recommend specially engineered acoustic fabrics, foams, and liners – all designed to reduce background noise with qualitative results.
In addition to acoustics, fabric has the added bonus of improving the appearance of any internal space.
The penetration of the acoustic wave creates sound absorption into the material which thus, by the dissipative effect of the air rubbing inside the cavities of the material or the fibers, creates dissipation and, thus, conversion of acoustic energy into heat.
As for each acoustic phenomenon, absorption depends on the incidental wavelength; it is also a function of the material’s thickness.
Acoustic fabrics are suited for many applications – all with the goal of meeting acoustic needs in architecture.
A few applications include absorbent acoustic sunscreens that can be rolled up, acoustic absorbing wall linings, acoustic ceilings, and velums – perfect for large spaces with glass or large volumes.
Examples of acoustic fabric system:
Sports halls, swimming pools, music spaces, classrooms, auditoriums, conference rooms, restaurants, and office spaces – to name a few.
From ceilings to partitions to sculptural 3-dimensional structures, the fabric can take many shapes creating beautiful solutions that dramatically improve the acoustic performance of any space.
