Specify Your Sound Needs With Frasch Acoustic Panels

Specifying acoustics to create a beautiful space that people enjoy being in just as much as they admire the design is a feat every architect strives to accomplish.

Depending on the size of the space and the commercial construction materials used, you may need additional sound-absorption products. This is because reflective surfaces create echoes that travel across the room.

In the wrong application, these bouncing soundwaves create uncomfortable areas where people don’t enjoy being. All in all, the more the echo, the more distracting and bothersome it can be.

But you don’t have to choose between design and comfort. With Frasch specifying acoustics panels, you can create a comforting environment in which visitors will enjoy the aesthetics without reverberating sound that sends people away to find relief.

Find The Right Acoustics For Your Space’s Specifications

Whether you’re building a restaurant, school, or convention center, the sound matters. Keep the space you are designing beautiful, welcoming, and comfortable for all who live, work, and play there with Frasch acoustical products.

1. Large Open Spaces Call For Sound Absorption

The dimensions of a room can have a massive impact on the way sound moves across the space. For instance, a small enclosed room will bounce the soundwaves of a regular speaking voice in a short amount of time. Meaning, you will hear what someone says without a hit of reverb.

However, larger spaces, without acoustical treatments, will elongate these soundwaves. This can result in even faint whispers traveling through the space. Music and louder conversations quickly become bothersome and irritating.

Whether you want to incorporate sleek wood grain or attractive felt panels, Frasch has acoustical products for any aesthetic and vibe. Especially in large rooms, acoustical ceilings  are incredibly helpful. In addition to the absorbing acoustic core, the ceiling-installed baffles block soundwaves from traveling the full distance of your large, beautiful room.

When soundwaves are interrupted with our baffle systems, they scramble and reduce their impact. Plus, these baffles are especially functional when integrating lights that help to illuminate the space to showcase your exceptional design.

2. The Floors, Wall, & Ceiling Materials May Amplify Sounds & Reflections

Consider a room with beautiful marble floors and plaster walls. From looks alone, you can likely imagine the space in a magazine. In fact, maybe you’ve previously seen the space in a design publication.

What you don’t sense from these awe-inspiring images is that those materials, as gorgeous as they may be, are highly reflective. This means soundwaves are longer and more noticeable as they bounce between surfaces.

However, a larger room made of solid non-porous surfaces will reflect even the smallest of sounds. This creates an echo that bounces from the floor, walls, and ceilings. Most people have experienced this in a loud restaurant when it’s difficult to hear the person next to them.

To achieve your desired acoustics without straying from your design, you can include the PIXL acoustic system by Frasch. PIXL is a modern take on acoustic wall tiles. Each sheet is as visually appealing with its elevated puffs as it is effective in sound absorption.

PIXL is available in two shapes, Square or Round and can be used on acoustics on walls and ceilings. You can opt for a White Poof with a Light Gray backer or a Light Gray Poof with a Dark Gray backer. Alternatively, for a pixelated and contemporary appearance, you may choose custom printing.

3. Noise Absorption Creates More Functional Spaces

Acoustics are an art form that when done right, amplify the right sounds throughout a space. For instance, many churches are designed to amplify the voices originating from the altar and choir/band section. This allows for sermons and music to reach every pew throughout the space.

However, these types of designs also prevent sound from the congregation from traveling across the room. One of the ways this unique acoustical design is achieved is through properly-placed, sound-absorbing ceiling and wall panels.

The FAZR acoustic system can provide the classic look of wood panels without the added reverb caused by solid wood. Mimicking the look of linear metal ceilings but with all the benefits of acoustical PET felt FAZR creates an acoustically ambient space that people enjoy.

4. People Complain Of Bad Sound But Don’t Notice Good Acoustics

Unless they have a specialty in acoustics or are sensory sensitive, most people don’t notice good acoustics when they visit a room or building. However, most people will notice and complain about a bad acoustic design.

As mentioned above, this is highly relatable in restaurant settings. But other types of spaces also require acoustic treatments to meet the functionality requirements. For example, people with autism typically have hyperacusis. This is a heightened sensitivity to sounds. The noises that trigger their sensitivities may include school bells, radios, TVs, and even the regular sounds that occur inside a single classroom.

Because of this, learning environments can either be a conducive place to learn or the reason for a terrible experience for certain people. Classrooms in particular are excellent spaces for Frasch acoustic wood panels. However, you can add more colors and fun into its design with the Frasch panels.

These panels can be custom printed and acts as art with sound-absorbing properties. Or you can include baffle applications to the ceilings for a colorful design that eliminates reverberations.
