ASC’s CeilingPanel will diffuse and absorb horizontal reflective ceiling bounce, thus balancing sound waves and quieting the space. Directional noise is best defined as horizontally projected sound that bounces off large flat surfaces like ceilings. This in turn creates the noise buildup typical in large spaces with lots of people.
Large rooms such as restaurants, malls, food courts and office lobbies are excellent echo chambers. As long as there is only one or two people present, this is OK. If there’s more than a few people, noise will quickly build up as each person struggles to be heard.
WHY ACOUSTIC CEILINGS WORK
The acoustic ceiling dampens the noise and absorbs a part of the sound through the hole pattern and acoustic fleece. More precisely, it reduces the reverberation in the room.
Acoustic ceilings reduce reverberation and prevent it from disturbing conversations. The person for whom an information is intended should be able to hear it loud and clearly.
In large rooms with little furniture, the reverberation can be heard for a long time. This is because the sound is not absorbed but instead reverberates back and forth between the walls like a ping pong ball. This is where acoustic ceilings help. The larger the acoustic surface, the lower the reverberation time, which makes the room and working environment all the more pleasant.
