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.
When combined with Guilford of Maine fabrics, the Spot Panel is fire rated and safe for institutional and commercial installations.
Spot Panels come in a selection of standard sizes and colors, but can be custom sized to fit any room. Contact us for a custom quote.
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.
