Acoustic panels are typically designed with a combination of fabric and foam, and they can be shaped and sized to custom-fit any space where improvements in sound quality is desired. Their primary purpose is to absorb and remove any residual and distracting sounds while localizing and containing any noises that are intended to be heard.
In areas where people are in close proximity attempting to communicate, such as call centers or busy offices separated by partitions, acoustic panels can absorb or diffuse sounds quickly from the primary point of reflection, which is optimal for concert halls and large auditoriums. When properly placed, acoustic wall panels can alter the acoustical conditions of most any space or outdoor environment to achieve the outcome desired.
You don’t necessarily need a lot of space to solve noise complaints, and our experts at Rampart can assist in identifying any points of reflection, explain the best places to use panels and discuss sizing options. Some clients who seek out acoustic panel solutions include:
There are many ways that acoustic panels can be installed, and what determines the best option involves establishing their purpose, the size of the space and the frequencies and sound desired. From wall panels—some that are decorative and almost invisible—to ceiling and suspended acoustic panels, Rampart can help you find the right solution.
Vertical acoustic panels are excellent for mitigating sound transfer between sides of a room. They lower background noise to acceptable levels. Horizontally placed acoustic panels are primarily used to directly absorb sound waves. By converting sound energy into heat through friction, they prevent sound waves from spreading.
If wall space is minimal, consider ceiling panels or suspended ceiling panels. These work with what is known as the proximity effect, in which the panels can be adjusted to varying heights to specifically target certain frequencies. These are very versatile and take up space that is often unused.
Rampart specializes in wall, ceiling and suspended acoustic baffles and diffusers crafted from the most resilient wood slats or perforated metals and materials. Rampart's moodacoustic series features the most efficient sound-absorbing acoustic panels on the market.
We use eco-friendly fiberglass, recycled PET and mineral wool in our products that have STC values between 27 and 45, depending on the composition of glass used. Our designers can even craft panels with natural elements for modern offices seeking discreet sound solutions.
