Dan's Construction and Repair Blog

Hello! My name is Dan and this is my construction and repair blog. I don't work in the industry myself, I have recently used a lot of different contractors during the construction of my home. Construction contractors used machinery to dig and lay the foundations for my home before the walls and trusses where installed. A roofing company installed a metal roof and contractors installed plumbing and electrical utilities. I was very impressed with the results and I learnt lots of cool things during the completion of this project. This blog contains information which will be useful to other people who plan to work with construction contractors.

Understanding Acoustic Panelling

Acoustic panelling is mainly used to improve the quality of sound in a space, which is in contrast to what many people believe. Saying that acoustic panelling helps in soundproofing is wrong because the majority of soundproofing products have the terms 'insulation' or 'soundproofing' in their names. For example, you can come across soundproofing foam, acoustic wool insulation, soundproofing compound, soundproof drywall, etc. Soundproofing is the act of preventing outside noises from getting into an interior space or vice versa.

Acoustic panelling involves the installation of acoustic panels on walls or ceilings to help absorb sound within a space and improve its quality. Sound echoes or prolonged reverberations of sound can occur in halls, auditoriums, restaurants and music studios if acoustic panels are not installed. These are the aspects that make it hard to achieve sound clarity; they make it hard for you to hear someone talking to you in a noisy hall, restaurant or auditorium. The following includes important things you should know about acoustic panelling:

Aesthetic Aspects

Acoustic panels are, of course, made to effectively absorb sound by eliminating echoes and sound reverberations. Keeping this in mind, different spaces have different aesthetic needs, and that is why you can come across different material compositions, designs and patterns for acoustic panels.

Wood and fabric are the two main acoustic panelling materials you might come across. Choose the material you prefer, but if you have a hard time making a choice, acoustic panelling companies or acoustic panelling designers can help you choose the material that matches your aesthetics.

You can also come across different designs that include artistic patterns or images, multiple colours, single colours, 3D design, unique shapes, etches, perforations, cut-outs, grooves, slots, etc.

Acoustic Panelling Cost

This depends on various factors:

  • Simply put, the larger the space or room, the higher the number of acoustic panels required, hence the higher the installation cost.  
  • Complex designs mean more work to create them and therefore a higher price. Simpler designs are cheaper because they require less work.
  • Wooden acoustic panels might be more expensive than fabric acoustic panels. This is because wood is generally more expensive than fabric.

You can, therefore, determine what factors you can mix up and whether you can expect a higher or lower acoustic panelling cost. If you want to know the accurate acoustic panelling installation cost, you should contact an acoustic panelling company to inspect your space and listen to your design ideas or acoustic panelling needs.
