With a clearer understanding of what acoustic panels consist of, we can go on to the next question: when should acoustic panels be installed?

As mentioned earlier, vertical and horizontal panels can be identified by different characteristics regarding their acoustic performance. However, we can specify this even more precisely.

In general, vertical panels help to reduce the sound transfer in a space by helping to prevent sound from propagating from one end of the room to the other. Vertical panels can also contribute to reducing background noise to an appropriate level.

For example, in many open-space modern offices, noise levels range from 60 to 80 decibels, while the recommended level is 45 to 55 decibels. As a result, if the goal is to reduce background noise and reverberation time, vertical acoustic panels solutions can be a great idea.

The types of novawall acoustic panels that can be a solution:

  • Wall panels and ceiling panels
  • Digital printing on textiles panels
  • Acoustic screens
  • Acoustic baffles

Horizontal acoustic panels, on the other hand, are mostly used for direct absorption. To prevent sound waves from spreading, absorbent acoustic panels must be used to convert sound waves into heat by friction. Made with sound-absorbing materials or flexible acoustic foam, all our horizontal acoustic panels perform well in terms of sound absorption.
