Common Acoustic Problems
Acoustic issues in the workplace can be hidden and costly. Terms like "decibel" and "echo" might sound familiar, but what about your wall's Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC)? If ambient noise doesn't get absorbed or dampened by your walls, it might be time to look into installing surfaces with a higher NRC. From the materials that make up your floor to your sound-absorbing décor, it's the little acoustic details that matter. Want your walls to make a statement? Consider making it a quiet statement with Acoustic Wall Panels.
*Note: Reverberation Time - The amount of time it takes for reverb to fade away in a closed space. RT60 is the time it takes for the sound pressure level to reduce 60 dB, and is the standard measurement used in acoustic calculations.
Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) - A numeric representation of the level of sound absorption of a surface. The scale ranges from 0 (perfect reflection) to 1 (perfect absorption).
