The GIK Acoustics Spot Panel is an excellent option for environments such as offices, restaurants and schools for controlling ambient noise.

There are tremendous benefits for treating a room acoustically. Sound expert Julian Treasure explains, “Because of poor acoustics, students in classrooms miss 50 percent of what their teachers say and patients in hospitals have trouble sleeping because they continually feel stressed.”  The average noise level in classrooms is 65dB.  By installing acoustic treatments, that level can be brought down to a healthier threshold.

The tests were carried out in the large reverberation room at the University of Salford (Manchester England). The room has been designed with hard surfaces and non-parallel walls to give long empty room reverberation times with uniform decays. It has the shape of a truncated wedge. In addition, 11 panels, each 1.22m x 2.44m, were hung in the room to improve the diffusivity of the sound field. The test sample was placed in the centre of the floor. The excitation signal comprised wide band random noise played into the room via a loudspeaker system mounted in a cabinet facing a corner. The sound was monitored at each of 5 microphone positions. The room is 7.4m long x ~6.6m wide x 4.5m high.

Because of poor acoustics, students in classrooms miss 50 percent of what their teachers say and patients in hospitals have trouble sleeping because they continually feel stressed. Julian Treasure sounds a call to action for designers to pay attention to the “invisible architecture” of sound.

There's a difference between a GIK Acoustics product and all others on the market.  We separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.

QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:

GIK Acoustics Bright White and Off White sqGIK 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 panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system. Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted 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.  Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won't shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber.  To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics - from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics. Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products.  The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.

VALUE:

The GIK DifferenceDollar for dollar, GIK Acoustics' products absorb more sabins (sound) than any other product on the market. We provide our customers the most cost effective solution to make every space sound it's best. GIK Acoustics Panels are tested and certified by the Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories (RAL) to provide the most accurate information on the results you can expect when you purchase our products. Our exceptional cost-to-benefit ratio means our customers do not over-buy or over-treat a room to get results.

INFORMATIVE:

Bass Traps & Low FrequenciesWhen it comes to improving the sound quality in a room, many find the science to be overwhelming and the task of DIY'ing acoustic treatments to be daunting. As part of our commitment to our customers, GIK Acoustics provides Educational Articles and Videos to demystify room acoustics. It's long been our goal to help customers truly understand how sound behaves in a space and the importance and benefits of proper room treatment.

INNOVATIVE:
