Especially in open-plan offices
or call centers, recording studios, at home or at work, good acoustics
are important. If the noise level is too high,
the work and quality of work suffer. The use of acoustic panels can reduce the noise level and improve the acoustics in a room. Acoustic panels
are offered with various materials that have an absorbing effect. When the sound hits the acoustic panels, it is largely converted into heat by
the porous surface. So only a part of the sound comes back into the room, which leads to a significant reduction of the noise.
Possible applications of acoustic panels
Acoustic panels can act on a room in different ways. Among other things, the use of wall or ceiling panels is very common. These are attached, for example,
in the form of a ceiling sail directly below the actual ceiling. For this purpose, acoustic panels are still used in various other ways, such as the active
furniture front of cabinets or shelves. This way, the furniture can also be converted into sound absorbers. The big advantage of this is that acoustic
panels can also be retrofitted without any special construction effort. To improve the sound in recording studios or concert halls, acoustic panels are also used here.
Absorber classes of acoustic panels
Acoustic panels are divided into an absorber class between A and E. For classification, a codified procedure is used, which is specified in DIN EN 11654.
The absorber class is based on the respectively determined absorption level. Which class is recommended for a room always depends on the
requirements made of the acoustic panels. Depending on the materials used, the sound absorption already present in a room can be
supplemented in a frequency-dependent manner. However, since balanced acoustics depend not only on the degree of absorption
but also on the degree of reflection, it is also possible to buy acoustic panels which are not assigned to any absorption class.
Classes A and B are highly absorbent, with a rated absorbance of between 0.90 and 1.00 for Class A and 0.80 to 0.85 for
Class B absorption. C-type acoustic panels are still highly absorbent and have one Absorbency between 0.60 and 0.75.
The sound insulation classes D and E then offer only lower values with a sound absorption coefficient of 0.30 to 0.55 or 0.15 to 0.25.
