The concerns of the client

The client mentioned that meetings were difficult to hold due to echo in the room. Clients had a hard time understanding them on conference calls.

The solution

  • The client picked a fabric for the panels that helped the acoustic panels blend into the walls and ceiling
  • We were able to work during business hours with minimal disruption to the surrounding offices.
  • The panels we manufactured and installed were 1" thick, wrapped in acoustically transparent fabric.
  • Our acoustic panels have been tested and certified at the Riverbank Acoustic Laboratory have an NRC rating of .80
  • Our panels also have a fire rating of Class A

Post Installation Analysis

We ( reduced the reverb by 65% from 1.5 seconds to .66 second.
The echo was gone and the client was more than happy!
