Soundproofing & Acoustic Panels

Acoustic Ceiling TilesAlmost 75% of restaurant customers say that they will not eat in a restaurant that they consider to be too loud. Noise has an effect on our level of comfort; at home, when we’re eating, when we’re working, even when we’re sleeping. Noise level can make a room comfortable when it’s adequate or unbearable when it’s boisterous. Sound is one of our key sensory receptors and we are extremely cognizant to this type of stimulus.

 

The good news is that enclosed spaces can be soundproofed and extraneous noise can be eliminated through the use of sound absorbing materials. Jackson's Corner in Bend, Oregon contracted Audio Visual Bend to put in acoustic ceiling ​panels. Acoustic ceiling​ panels made it possible to reduce echos and noise without aesthetically compromising the feel of the restaurant.

 

At Audio Visual Bend, we can help you transform any noisy space into an area with high-quality acoustics. Whether you’re hoping to get rid of an echo in your living room, or reduce noise in your company’s conference room, we’ve got the perfect soundproofing solution.

What You Need to Know About Soundproofing A Room

Acoustic PanelNoise is created by sound waves bouncing back and forth against hard surfaces. Rooms that require soundproofing need more mass in order to handle the amount of sound pressure, or amplitude, sound waves create in that space.


There are multiple types of soundproofing solutions, including acoustic panels, acoustic foam and isolation barriers. Each soundproofing technique will have a different effect on noise. It’s important to understand the principles of soundproofing so that you choose the correct technique for the type of noise reduction you are trying to achieve. Soundproofing processes include absorption and isolation.


Sound Absorption

Cotton Stack Acoustic PanelsMass and sound are directly related; the more dense an object is, the more sound it will absorb. Sound absorption methods include techniques that use materials to soak up sound waves. Materials that are used to absorb sound are softer and can be placed on the outside of walls or ceilings. Acoustic panels and acoustic foam are effective sound absorption methods.


Acoustic Panels and acoustic foam reduce noise in enclosed spaces. They accomplish this by decreasing echoes, reverberation time, and reflected sound. Acoustic panels and foam provide additional necessary mass in order to achieve echo elimination and reverberation.

 

You might hear acoustic panels referred to as soundproofing panels, acoustic wall panels, acoustic ceiling tiles, sound absorbing panels, acoustic tiles, sound panels or acoustic sound panels. Acoustic foam is also called soundproof foam and acoustic foam panels.


Do You Need Acoustic Panels?

Acoustic PanelsAreas that might benefit from sound absorption include gymnasiums, music studios, recording rooms, cinemas and theaters, living rooms with vaulted ceilings, classrooms, factories and warehouses, auto garages, mechanic shops, and hair salons. It’s even common to put acoustic panels in laundry rooms because of their noisy appliances.

Acoustic wall panels were placed in Summit High School's new computer lab. The computer lab was an acoustic nightmare; a square room with concrete floors. Echos in the computer were greatly reduced by the acoustic panels placed alongside the walls.

If a space in your residence or business is extremely noisy, your room might benefit from acoustic ceiling tiles. If you’re considering soundproofing an area, call us at 541.388.1732 or Email Us for a free acoustic treatment quote.

Acoustic curtains were extremely effective in eliminating resonance and noise reverberation in their conference room.
