Next generation absorbent acoustic treatments.
Traditionally, the acoustic absorbent needs in premises intended for professional uses related to sound, television, offices, conference centres, etc., were based on fixed absorbent acoustic treatments. This meant that the absorbent acoustic materials went on to form part of the surfaces where they were installed and could not be easily modified or changed.
This has changed completely thanks to the acoustic treatments with modular panels, which can be placed and removed as required without having to compromise the acoustic treatment of your premises on the very long term.
All interior designers, at some point, need to incorporate, as part of their finishing materials, acoustic products that help them control the reverberation times of the premises that they design. Thanks to the new manufacturing techniques of acoustic object-type products it is possible to add ad-hoc and with a customised design, all the products that we need, without having to compromise on the aesthetics of our premises, and jointly achieve the design objectives.
Acústica Integral has been developing acoustic products for years to cover for its customers' needs, striving to meet their design requirements with customised products with finishes that allow them to achieve their decorative expectations, without compromising on the construction standards regarding fire, hygiene, etc. The Changes we have undergone in the past years with the incorporation of the BUILDING TECHNICAL CODE (CTE), particularly regarding noise with its BASIC DOCUMENT REGARDING NOISE PROTECTION (DB-HR), have made for the designers of architectural spaces to consider acoustic parameters, as these were often overlooked in the interior design of buildings. Now, specific minimum requirements must be met and reached regarding the acoustic features of buildings, mainly with the wellbeing of the users in mind, regarding the acoustic of spaces.
The great demand for acoustic products of the past years has been due to the fact that designers needed acoustic products that they could incorporate into their designs, without the complex architectural design being altered. Products such as those of the Acustiart family, in all its proposals, make it easier for the designer to achieve the design objectives mentioned above. Standard products, customised, standard finishes or chosen by the customer, variety of shapes, etc. The customer can decide whether he wants acoustic elements that stand out in the design, or that otherwise, go unnoticed. The possibility of creating absorbent acoustic objects with printed fabric, such as Acustiart Digital, extend the range of options with regard to providing infinite finishes, achieving an infinite degree of integration regarding the decoration of premises. The possibility of incorporating special shaped such as is the case of Acustiart Shape (Acustiart-S), or having available different finishes for each of the sides of the material as in the case of Acustiart DUO. Round finishes like those of Acustiart-C, or absorbent products with lighting forming part of the acoustic object as in the case of Acustiart-L.
As we can see, things have changed and continue to change. Companies like Acústica Integral, which is committed to the development of new products, enable for the acoustic treatments inside premises to have an important role regarding design, as this is an important parameter currently considered by designers when providing their facilities with the appropriate acoustic conditions.
It is essential to consider the acoustic design as part of the creation process of spaces, as if otherwise, factors such as excessive reverberation times, high background noises, noise from installations, vibrations, noise from electronic equipment, etc., will become a problem that will be difficult and costly to solve, if these have not been considered when designing the projects.
