Ceilings are excellent places for sound absorbing materials as well as additional fire and thermal insulation. Because they are installed so high, the soft and absorbent stone wool slabs and lamellas are safe from mechanical damage and provide optimal acoustic performance. At the same time that you create a good sound environment, you increase the fire safety and energy efficiency of the structure.
People are spending more and more of their time indoors, which means that the quality of the indoor environment is becoming ever more important to our general well-being. An important aspect of the indoor environment is the acoustic environment. This affects people in many different ways, and studies show a clear link between exposure to noise and a variety of health effects.
Room acoustic design means making a room fit technically for how it will be used. Acoustic design divides sounds in the space into two types: preferred and disturbing. Preferred sounds include a teacher’s voice in a classroom and a music performance in concert hall. Disturbing sounds include noisiness and excessive echo. Acoustic design promotes the benefits of sound coverage and absorbs undesirable noise.
