Comment créer un bon environnement acoustique

How to create a good acoustic environment

Reverberation is measured in time and not in decibels (as one might think).

So when you measure reverberation in a room, you are measuring the time it takes for sound to die out in a room. Not how loud the sound is.

The sooner the sound turns off, the less reverberation there is in the room.

In other words; we need to shorten the reverberation time.

So how to go about it?

In general, sound-absorbing materials should be installed where sound waves are reflected.

It will generally be hard surfaces (walls and ceilings) that are the problem, as sound waves bounce off these surfaces.

There are several sound-absorbing materials that you can use for this purpose, and of course our acoustic panels are one of them. They have a Class A acoustic rating, when you insert mineral wool behind the panels, meaning they are very effective at dampening noise.

The sound rating – Class A – is the highest rating available.

How Acoupanneaux® works:

Acoustic felt (which by the way is made from recycled plastic) absorbs sound waves as they hit the panels. This means that the sound will not be reflected into the room, but will be absorbed by the panel.

This in itself is very effective, but in addition to this, the Acoupanneau will also attenuate sound in other ways. The slats (or battens) attached to the acoustic felt also attenuate the sound by breaking up the sound waves.

Technically, this is called diffusion.

The panels split the sound waves when they hit an uneven surface (because of the slats) and therefore the sound waves will lose energy, as they are split into smaller sound waves.

This helps to attenuate the sound even more.

But where is the best place to install the panels to get the maximum effect from the panels?

The answer is in this article:
