FORM AT WOOD Wooden Acoustic Panel
The materials chosen for acoustic panels play a pivotal role in sound absorption and aesthetics. The most common materials used for acoustic panels include synthetic foams, fiberglass, wood, fabric, and metal. While some panels might be made from one single material, many panels have a foam layer and rigid core covered with fabric or another material. The combination of materials you choose can impact the level of sound absorbency and reflectiveness.
Acoustic foams such as polyurethane or melamine are economical but tend to be more fragile and less effective at absorbing lower frequencies than denser materials. This is why acoustic foams are often combined with other materials in acoustic panels.
Fiberglass has a high level of sound absorption and heat resistance but is difficult to recycle.
Mineral wool often contains a high percentage of recycled material and also has a high level of sound absorption. It is also moisture resistant and has a higher fire and heat resistance than fiberglass.
Fabric acoustic panels are available in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes, which can help decorate or add interest to spaces.
Metal acoustic panels are often available in perforated patterned designs for better sound absorption.
Wooden acoustic panels are available in slatted, perforated, engraved, and 3D designs ranging from individual panels to complete partition walls and drop ceilings. Wood wool acoustic panels have an open fiber structure, which improves sound absorption.
