Horizon™ is suitable for most surfaces and is perfect in commercial settings such as offices, theatres, libraries, retail and hospitality sectors. Author Horizon™ can be suspended from any height, which means not only can it conceal the ceiling, it also doesn’t rely on a clear space.
Customising the Amount of Sound Absorption
Libraries, 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.
