quality in a space, the areas function needs to be matched to the required acoustic performance. Once this essential design element and assessment is completed a decision can be made on the placements of the acoustic clouds, baffles, or panels. Acoustic treatments are available in a wide range of sound absorbing panels, fabric systems, acoustic ceiling clouds or noise baffles.
All these products absorb direct sound energy and, if placed properly, reduce direct and reflected sound bouncing off other hard surfaces. In general, soft and or porous materials are good sound absorbers which contribute to reducing the noise energy in a space. Dense, hard surfaces and materials reflect sound, causing echo and noise energy build up making conversations difficult to understand.
Using Acoustic baffles or acoustic clouds
Acoustic baffles and acoustic clouds come into their own when wall space is limited or when the area is large. Just like acoustic wall panels, they absorb both direct and (echo) reverberant sound.
As the name suggests acoustic clouds and baffles are usu
