Sound Absorbent Panels – What Are They?
Panels can be used to improve the quality of sound in any room in your home or business by absorbing sound vibrations before they reach your listening area. Sound Absorbent Panels work by absorbing sound before they reach the listener. They do this by creating an acoustic ceiling, creating an effect similar to a solid wall. The majority of these Panels are made of Styrofoam and a plastic frame is attached to the top edge. Most sound absorbent panel systems are not effective in sound proofing a home or business.
Panels work well in reducing outside noise from the front of a house but do not work as effectively on sound bouncing back from the ceiling. Panels that have multiple layers can effectively increase the effectiveness of a soundproof system. Panels are typically installed in areas where the source of noise is very loud such as a recording studio or home theater. Panels are available in several different sizes that will depend on the amount of sound absorption needed in the area. It is important to ensure that you purchase the correct size panels for the purpose of your installation.
