Room acoustics

Sense of space and reverberation time

Acoustics is a central aspect for a pleasant sense of space. If the reverberation time of spoken words or sounds is too long, you quickly feel uncomfortable. The causes of this unpleasant effect are generally hard and smooth surfaces that are not sufficiently sound absorbent. The reverberation time is regarded as the essential characteristic for the assessment of the acoustical quality of a room. It specifies the amount of time a sound level drops by 60 dB after the end of the sound. Speech intelligibility is another room acoustic parameter. In different rooms with the same reverberation time, speech intelligibility can also differ. Basically you can say: The shorter the reverberation time, the better the speech intelligibility.

Area of application

Wherever spatial acoustics are to be improved with creative aspiration, our Fibro-Kustik wood-wool acoustic boards come into play.

Schools and kindergartens

Schools and kindergartens

As our above-mentioned practical example of a child-care center ceiling refurbishment indicates, Fibro-Kustik boards are optimal for the reduction of disturbing reverberation times and thus for the improvement of room acoustics.

Shooting ranges

Shooting ranges

Due to their excellent sound absorption values, Fibro-Kustik boards are particularly suitable for the sound insulation of sports and area shooting ranges. As far as safety is concerned, the boards have excellent rebound- and recoil-retardant properties. A corresponding expert report on the audit concerning the inhibitory sound recoil properties with Fibro-Kustik boards with respect to compliance with the shooting directive is available.
