Customising the Amount of Sound Absorption
For indoor spaces, it’s important to consider the noise level that will be experienced at any given time. The larger space, it’s more important it is to control the noise level. Buildings in Australia are generally built with acoustic insulation in the walls. Often for large space with many people, the wall insulation is not enough. That’s where Autex’s range of acoustic solutions comes in. Available in any colour shape and style, Autex has the perfect solution to customise the sounds reverberation in any setting.
Libraries or theatres, for example, should be as quiet as possible, so a larger proportion of surfaces is lined with acoustic panels. Total sound absorption in restaurants, on the other hand, is not at all desirable. Customers do want to be able to hold a decent conversation at their table without straining to hear what their friends and family are saying over a whole lot of other noise. But some background noise is essential to facilitate a live atmosphere; this is the “buzz” that is often associated with a popular café or restaurant. This also gives customers the freedom to talk without being overheard by other diners or waiting staff.
Sound Waves and Reverberation
Sound waves travel through the air in a straight line. When they hit different materials, some of them are reflected, some is absorbed and some are transmitted through the material. What happens to the sound waves depends on the properties of the material. As a general rule, soft and dense materials tend to absorb sound, thin materials transmit sound and hard surfaces reflect sound. If then, you are in a room which is lined with hard surfaces, a noise that is produced will literally “bounce” around the room until it eventually dissipates. Having several sources of sound in this room, for example, several conversations going at once combined with a few chairs scraping the floor creates what can be described as nothing less than acoustic chaos.
