When sound strikes a surface or a wall, some of it is reflected (reverberation), some of it is absorbed and some of it is transmitted to the other side. The nature of the obstacle determines how much sound is reflected, absorbed and transmitted.
A measure of a material’s performance is the absorption coefficient α:
α = 0 if totally reflective
α = 1 if totally absorptive and/or transmissive
Different surfaces have different sound-absorbing properties. Porous matter, such as carpeting, wood and the material used for SoftZone, are very effective at absorbing sound. In comparison, hard and smooth surfaces, such as concrete, plate glass and metal, reflect acoustic energy and create reverberation that SoftZone panels help to absorb.
SoftZone improves acoustics by enhancing speech clarity where needed and by preventing people’s conversations from disturbing other people. SoftZone features a modular approach that lets you vary the quantity of panels required to achieve the desired level of sound attenuation.
