Acoustic absorption panels: How Do They Work

Employers looking to reduce noise usually turn to movable walls or sliding folding partitions. These walls act as excellent soundproofing strategies to create a quieter environment or workspace, however come at a large cost. Acoustic panels on the other hand are a cheaper alternative that can reduce noise pollution and are more accessible to most people’s budgets.

What Are Acoustic Panel Best Suited For?


If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to reducing sounds and noise, acoustic panels may be your best bet. Soundproof panels work well within reducing mid to high-level frequency sound waves due to their moderate mass. They do not block noise entirely due to their weaker capabilities within insulating low-frequency sound waves that have longer wavelengths. Upon choosing an acoustic product, you should evaluate what sort of noises you want to be reduced or eliminated, acoustic panels are primarily suited for acoustic sounds and not intense noise reduction. 


How Do Acoustic Panels Work To Reduce Sound?


Acoustic panels work by dampening and deadening soundwaves, helping to eliminate any back noise and echoes by their ability to control reverberation. Reverberations are the soundwaves that bounce off walls or structures. The acoustic panels should be purchased based upon what sort of noise or external noise you want to reduce, if you want to eliminate the sounds of people talking near your office or workspace a standard panel should work fine. In most cases however, louder sounds such as cars or trucks moving would require a more heavy-duty panel.
