Some Technical stuff

NRC is an acronym for Noise Reduction Coefficient. This term describes how well an object or surface absorbs incoming sound. An NRC rating of .8 or better is ideal for room acoustic treatment

Sound reflection is the physical event of sound bouncing from surface to surface in a given area or room, causing echo or sound reverberation.

Sound reverberation is the technical measurement of sound reflections, measured with frequency, response times and decay.  

Soundproofing is the process of stopping sound from traveling from one area to another. Acoustic panels do not help with this.

White noise can be broadcast in an office environment, to help cover up distracting noises. Typically this noise is static and constant. Unfortunately White Noise will not  help reduce echo and reverb in an office or restaurant.

Sound Masking is similar to white noise, but is more dynamic and customizable to specific environments. Some sound masking systems are highly adaptable and learn on their own.

Acoustic Foam is commonly found in recording studios and is typically made from polyether or polyester, or melamine. It comes in different sizes and shapes and is easily cut.

What is acoustic treatment?: Much like window treatment refers to curtains and such, that affect the light passing through the window, acoustic treatment refers to products and fixtures that affect, the behaviour of sound in a given space.

The phrase: "room acoustics" is used to describe how sound behaves in a room, and is generally used by the music community. For a live music performance, a room with "good room acoustics", means the room will have a little, natural reverb. A room with poor "room acoustics" will have annoying echo and reverb.

Acoustic panels also known as acoustic sound panels, or just sound panels are typically made in sizes from 1'x1' to 4'x8' and ranging in thickness from 1" to 2".

The inside of the acoustic panel is made with acoustic media to convert sound to heat, There is usually an internal frame to provide the panel with clean lines and allow for installation. The panel is then wrapped with acoustically transparent fabric or vinyl.

Acoustic wall panels are simply acoustic panels that designed to be installed on walls as opposed to ceilings. They are cheaper to manufacture and install the ceiling panels. Read more here, for a comprehensive overview of Acoustic Wall Panels.

Acoustic baffles also known as acoustic sound baffles, or just Sound baffles  typically come in cylinder, rectangle and square shapes.

Baffles cannot be installed on a ceiling where there are sprinkler heads installed.

Acoustic baffles hang from the ceiling by wire. Baffles are effective, but because they are typically smaller than acoustic panels, more baffles are needed to cover the same space. Unfortunately, baffles will intrude on your line of sight, and have a tendency to lower the perceived height of the ceiling. For a comprehensive overview of acoustic baffles.. Read more

Aren't all Acoustic panels created equal  ?

acoustic-tiles-homemade

Our panels are not made in a basement or a garage at the back of a house.
Our Acoustic panels are manufactured in our Shop in Oakville.

sound-panel-fire-rating

Our panels are not made with wood. wood is flammable, holds moisture and is prone to mildew and mold.
Our panels are built with metal frames, to provide strength and clean lines.

acoustic-panel-structural-integrity

Our panels are not held together with glue.
Some panels are just acoustic media draped with fabric.
The fabric we use for our panels is tucked, and riveted to the frame.

sound-panels-pull-force

We don't use staples. 
Structural integrity is important when Acoustic panels are hanging above your customers. It will take over 45 pounds of force to forcibly remove our panel off the wall or ceiling, once it is secured.
