Commercial spaces often present acoustic challenges – with noise reverberating and echoing off the hard surfaces, vast foyers or intimate spaces.
Natural light, oversized windows, high ceilings, glass boxes, open plan spaces are all aesthetically pleasing design choices loved by modern architects and interior designers. However, these beautiful spaces often present acoustic challenges, as noise reverberates, echoes and amplifies off these hard surfaces.
Noise can be unwanted sound and we are besieged with accidental and unpleasant sounds on a daily basis. Considering this, sound that is not managed, is interfering with complex task performance, speech intelligibility, behaviour, and is a potential stress inducer. This is therefore contradicting the experiences we want people to have, whether it be in the work place, relaxing in a hotel, recovering in hospital or enjoying your later years in an aged care facility.
With the aim to tackle the reflected sound within these commercial spaces, Materialised offer a variety of Acoustic Solutions, for a harmonious balance of acoustics and aesthetics.
Our Acoustic Art & Pin, Hush Acoustics – Sheer Drapery & Blind Fabric and Hush Acoustics – Light Reduction/Opaque Drapery Fabric all have impressive NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) ratings and are flame retardant to Australian/New Zealand standards.
Our transparent range of Hush Acoustics – Sheer Drapery & Blind Fabric are suitable for any space where the sound of the room, as well as lighting design are the focus.
The Hush Acoustics – Light Reduction/Opaque Drapery Fabric range is available as a plain option or printed with the iconic Materialised print range. The designs and colour choices are endless and would suit any interior space.
Materialised Acoustic Art & Pin are additional innovative noise reduction systems that are complemented by the Materialised print range, plus the extensive Materialised Image Library to choose from.
