The Benefits Of Acoustic Wall Panels

When it comes to controlling and refining sound quality in rooms, acoustic wall panels provide unbeatable results. The right panels can slash reverberation by 90% and cut out problem frequencies to improve room dynamics.

But what are the real benefits of acoustic wall panels? This article explores the eight main benefits. Let’s jump in!

  1. Enhanced acoustic quality

You can combine different acoustic wall panels to absorb different frequencies, giving you ultimate control over the sound profile of your space. For example, you can reduce medium frequency sounds without impacting the high frequency.

  1. Eliminate reverberation

In large, open spaces, reverberation – where sounds bounce off surfaces – is your biggest problem when controlling sound. Acoustic wall panels absorb 90-100% of the sound that hits them, slashing reverberation and cutting noise levels.

  1. Improved user experience

People using your room will appreciate the enhanced acoustic qualities provided by wall panels, especially if the space is used for social events, shows, gigs and concerts – which is why theatres and concert halls always use them.

  1. Easy to install

Acoustic wall panels can be installed directly on walls with screws or adhesive or mounted on brackets and slotted into place. Some panels also work with steel panels and magnets, giving you many ways to install them.

  1. Suitable for any room

Acoustic wall panels are available in any size and shape to suit any room. Plus, there’s an abundance of finishes (including printed upholstery), so they blend in with décor and don’t look out of place in public settings.

  1. Improved productivity

In offices, schools and similar environments, acoustic wall panels help cancel out distracting frequencies. Panels strategically placed prevent sounds from travelling from one end of the room to the other, creating acoustic isolation.

  1. Durable and long-lasting

Acoustic wall panels will last the lifetime of your building, providing that they are not damaged and exposed to the elements. You can also get impact-resistant wall panels like the TVS ABSorb Sport Panel for sports centres.

  1. Affordable

Acoustic wall panels cost £10 to £15 per square foot for specialised panels designed to cut out certain frequencies. For generic panels, the cost is as low as £7 per square foot, although you pay for what you get in terms of quality.
