Absorption products such as acoustic panels are utilized to control noise, eliminate slap echo and control comb filtering in a room. The objective is to enhance the properties of sound by improving sound quality. Often used in recording studios, home theaters and listening rooms, the purpose of acoustic panels is to reduce, but not entirely eliminate, resonance within the room. Acoustic panels deal more with the mid and high frequencies in a room. Sound absorption is different than soundproofing, which is typically used to keep sound from escaping a room.
GIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every acoustic panel by hand. Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics crafts acoustic panels and bass traps with quality insulation material, fabrics, and hardwood plywoods. We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics – not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship’s engine room. We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods – not cheap imports – to construct our frames. The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability.
