As all who work in a small office, or perhaps more importantly from home, know, noise is one of the biggest contributors to stress and non-productivity.
And we don’t mean the radio that you want to hear, but rather the unwanted, background noise generated by others.
A little physics tells us that noise travels in waves, and that the most important factor in sustaining and amplifying noise in a room is reverberation and reflection from walls.
Ergo, stop the reverberation and reflection and you reduce the background noise and so your stress and so you can get a lot more done.
This fairly basic principle is the idea behind acousticpearls.
Only, and as with all really good industrial design, the crowning glory is the step from raw physics to design: which in the case of acousticpearls is the outer covering in pure new wool coverings from Danish producer kvadrat.
But back to the science.
The acoustic pearl panels are 4,5 cm thick, filled with a highly effective, shock resistant acoustic material and are certified according to ISO 354-2003 Acoustics — Measurement of sound absorption in a reverberation room.
Which on a practical level means they are effective at increasing sound absorption and reducing reverberation in a room. And so at reducing the background noise level.
The number of acousticpearl panels required in a given space is dependent on both the “volume” of the room and the room usage/level of expected background noise.
However, hanging several panels shouldn’t pose too many problems.
For, thanks to the decision to cover the acousticpearls panels in kvadrat wool you have a wonderful range of design, layout and colour options all in high quality pure new wool – meaning that regardless of the intended use, or number of panels required, acousticpearls can provide an attractive, stylish solution.
The acousticpearls panels come in the three different variations; MONO DUO 1 and DUO 2.
MONO is, as it’s name should suggest, MONOtone.
DUO 1 and DUO 2 are both two-toned: DUO 1 horizontally and DUO 2 vertically separated. In both cases the ratio of the two colours is 2:1
The possibly combinations are only limited by your imagination and colour schemes.
Finally, the back of the acousticpearls panels come with inbuilt fixtures for mounting and a complete wall mounting kit is included with each panel.
acousticpearls are ideal for not only reducing the background noise and reverberation in office environments, but also in, for example, reception areas, dining rooms/canteens or a large conference room.
They can, however, also be used in the home to help create a pleasant acoustic aesthetic.
