Acoustic materials should always be top of mind when designing, constructing, or remodeling an Auditorium, Concert Venue, Band Hall, Recording Studio, Listening Room, or Home Theater. These spaces will all have varying degrees of acoustical challenges that need to be taken into consideration.
Auditoriums and Band Halls are typically large open spaces used for theater, plays, concerts, or speaking engagements. If acoustical considerations in the space have not been well thought out, there may be reverberation (echo) present that creates speech intelligibility issues. High ceilings, bare side walls, and hard floors are reflective surfaces and will cause reverberant noise problems. Noise Control Specialist would typically perform simple calculations as to how much material is needed then recommend introducing acoustic materials such as Acoustic Wall Panels, Stretch Wall Systems, Acoustic Clouds, Acoustic Baffles, Acoustic Banners, or Diffusers into the space to correct acoustical performance characteristics.
Concert venues usually present a lot of the same characteristics as auditoriums and band halls. High ceilings, bare side walls, and concrete floors are the norm and will cause reverberation (echo) throughout the venue. Since concert venues can be indoor or outdoor the acoustic materials used within these spaces can vary. The fact that architecture and aesthetics are not the main focus in concert venues, we can typically use acoustical materials such as our EcoLine Wall Panels, Ceiling Baffles or Ceiling Banners to control reverberant noise levels and keep cost to a minimum. We do however offer many other types of materials that would work in these spaces. It's really more about budget than performance concerns at this point.
