Excess noise can be a problem in many places. Offices are the obvious example, but it can be an issue in restaurants, shops, auditoriums, libraries and other places too. One of the ways of combating this is with the use of sound absorption panels.
The acoustic panels have a core made of a material like foam or mineral wool so that they absorb sound waves and act as a means of reverberation control in enclosed areas. When sound waves strike one of these acoustic panels, they quickly dissipate, killing the noise. The outer surface of Varitone absorption panels is made of perforated steel, making them tough and easy to maintain so they can be used in many different applications.
Installing sound absorption panels can offers a number of advantages for both employees and customers that will ultimately benefit your business. Let’s have a look at some of the key benefits.
By deadening unwanted sound using absorption panels, you can make other sounds much clearer. This leads to improved intelligibility of speech in lecture rooms or performance venues. It can also help in retail and dining environments, (so time isn't wasted trying to catch what people are saying.)
Cutting out unwanted noise can help to reduce stress levels too. If people can clearly hear what's being said, they're less likely to become irritated and frustrated by their inability to understand what's going on.
If you walk into an office or restaurant and are hit by a wall of noise, it can be off-putting to say the least. Cutting noise makes for a more welcoming and pleasant environment. Staff will be able to hear customer requests clearly, and customers will be able to carry on conversations at comfortable levels. This can have benefits in that customers are likely to stay for longer and in consequence spend more money.
In offices, a space without excess noise can make for greater productivity. It can be easier for staff to hear customers on the phone and make conference rooms places that can be used without worries about confidential information leaking out.
In spaces where there's a lot of noisy equipment, such as workshops or even computer server rooms, cutting noise can enhance workplace safety too. It makes it easy for employees to communicate clearly and helps to eliminate distractions that can lead to accidents.
If you're worried about the look of your office or business, sound absorption panels can be specified in a range of decorative finishes that can be mounted on walls and ceilings. They're also easy to clean, so they can be used in factories and food preparation areas where hygiene is essential.
