Akupanel Woodpanel. What is this?
Improved speech comprehension
"Can you say that one more time, please?" will be a sentence of the past. In rooms with low reverberation it is easier to hear what people are saying.
Improve your wellbeing and reduce stress levels.
Being in an environment with poor acoustics can have negative affects on your health and general wellbeing. Removing reverberation has significant health benefits.
The Akupanel measures 2400 x 600 mm, and is made from lamellae 11 mm and 27 mm deep, with a distance of 13 mm in between. The slats are mounted on a base of acoustic felt. The specially developed acoustic felt is made from recycled material and is 9 mm thick. The panel is 22 mm thick in total including the slats and the felt.
Sound Class A – the best possible rating.
In an official soundtest our Akupanel reached the highest rating possible – Sound Class A. In order to reach Sound Class A, you have to install mineral wool behind the panels (check out our installation guide). However, you can also install the panels directly on your wall, and by doing so the panels will reach Sound Class D, which is also very effective when it comes to dampening the sound.
As you can see on the graph the panels are most effective at frequencies between 300 Hz and 2000 Hz, which are the common noice levels that most people are experiencing. In reality this means that the panels will dampen both high and deep sounds. The graph above is based on acoustic panels mounted on a 45 mm. batten with mineral wool behind the panels.
