Acoustic Panels: An Overview 

Acoustic panels are tiles or panels that are made of or contain sound-absorbing material. They are installed on walls, ceilings, and doors to effectively manage a space’s noise, vibrations, and sound. They come in various shapes, forms, and sizes.

Acoustic panels are typically simple to install, requiring little to no tool assistance, and can be completed relatively quickly.

How Do Acoustic Panels Work? 

Acoustic panels are made to soak up noise. Acoustic panels absorb sound in a two-step process. They absorb the sound waves first, then internally diffuse and convert them to heat energy.

When sound waves strike the acoustic panels, they absorb sound waves by slowing the sound energy as it passes through them and then diffusing the remaining sound waves. 

The absorbed sound energy is then transformed into heat and stored in acoustic panels for thermal conditioning of your space. Temperature fluctuation indoors is minimized with ample acoustic panels in your offices or conference room, allowing for better management, especially during cold weather.

What is the Main Purpose of Acoustic Panels? 

Architectural  acoustic panels soften hard surfaces such as walls, ceilings, and floors. By installing acoustic panels in any indoor space, you can reduce the noise created in addition to the original noise in that space. Hard surfaces such as walls, ceilings, and floors reflect sound, which causes echoes and reverberations.

Echoes and reverberations reflect noise to create different versions of sound that hit your eardrums at different times and make any noise louder by repeating the sound waves. Acoustic panels reduce the secondary reflected sound waves that create noise. 

Different types of Acoustic panels 

Acoustic foam 

This is made of melamine and is extremely porous. We typically do not recommend purchasing such acoustic foam for reducing noise since it is made of the same material as packing foam and is very porous. Unless you have problems with very high-frequency ambient noises, you may want to use something other than acoustic foam as an acoustic solution in your space.

Fabric-wrapped Acoustic Panels 

Architectural acoustic panels are typically rectangular panels with wooden frames and wool inserts wrapped in fabric. Mineral Wool, Rock Wool, and Fiberglass Wool are wool inserts used inside. Acoustic panels made of foam, fibreglass, mineral wool, or cotton fibres are frequently constructed by stuffing the fibres of wool into a wooden frame and wrapping it in fabric. 

Some people dislike the materials because they are not sold as a finished product and may irritate the skin and eyes when in direct contact with them. The materials are also more flammable than other materials.

Wood Wool Acoustic Panels 

These acoustic panels are made of wood wool and are available in various shapes and sizes. Hexagonal, rectangular, and square tiles with designs are common shapes.

Polyester Acoustic Panels 

These are the most recent products on the market. They are made from recycled plastic bottles, which would otherwise end up in landfills and oceans.
