Room acoustics and well-being

You’ve likely experienced it before: Saturday evening, in a good mood, you are out with friends and everything is set up for a wonderful evening. However, for some reason, you simply don’t feel comfortable. Is this down to your exhausting work week? Are you coming down with a cold? Or is the music too loud? This may, but needn’t, be possible. Poor room acoustics are often to blame for discomfort.  Sound absorption and well-being Not all noise is the same – for many, concerts in sold-out halls can be unforgettable highlights, even if the music is far louder than in a bar, for example. The difference is that in a small, cosy bar, the room acoustics must meet very different requirements than those in a massive concert hall. This is because the noise generates sound waves – and there are many of these in a busy restaurant – which cause considerable reverberation without the appropriate sound absorption. Not only is this annoying and irritating, it also causes us to raise our voices, leading to even louder background noise. It’s a vicious cycle that often leads to headaches, tiredness and discomfort.  Our individual solutions Our innovative MAKUSTIK system offers a wide range of solutions for the room acoustics of many types of spaces which meet the highest standards with regard to aesthetics and fire protection.

Reverberation time and room acoustics

With the unique MAKUSTIK system, we offer innovative solutions for even the most demanding requirements for room acoustics. With our products FeinMikro |FM, Perfo | PE and Linea | LI, we can flexibly meet a wealth of acoustics-related needs. Our acoustics technologies will vastly improve the reverberation time in your premises. What was that about reverberation time?  How reverberation time arises Sounds move in sound waves – whether it’s the clang of dishes, loud music, construction noises or a whisper. As soon as the sound waves reach our ears, they cause our eardrums to vibrate. This then leads to impulses that are processed as sound in our brain. Our ear absorbs and processes the sound waves, so these absorbed sound waves don’t cause reverberation. It’s different for the sound waves that don’t find their way into the ear, however: if the room is not equipped with an acoustic solution, we can hear a restless sort of sound that subsides only slowly.  The perfect reverberation time for your room acoustics The period of time between the silencing of a sound source, i.e. the origin of the sound waves, to the reduction of the reverberation to a defined fraction of the initial value is known as the reverberation time. In a nutshell, a reverberation time of four seconds means that the sound can still be perceived for four seconds. Depending on the room and requirements, these four seconds may feel annoying. It should be noted that the requirements for the room acoustics, i.e. relating to the reverberation time, may be very different depending on the purpose of the room. An airport hall has different requirements to a music school or a library, which is exactly where our MAKUSTIK panels come into play. Thanks to our in-house planning and production of the panels, we offer tailored absorption values for the most demanding requirements.  Experience room acoustics like never before We know exactly which absorption values meet the different requirements for room acoustics. Our innovative MAKUSTIK system offers solutions for all room sizes and takes special material and aesthetic requirements into account.

Ceiling sails with MAKUSTIK FeinMikro

MAKUSTIK FeinMikro in the living area
Room acoustics to feel good combined with light and shapes In addition to the performance of a sound absorber in terms of sound absorption, the focus is also on the arguments of design, structure and application possibilities are in the center of attention. The aim of good room acoustics is to design the room in such a way that it meets the requirements and thus the intended use. Rooms need atmosphere. Room acoustics is a very important part of this, but must not limit the other factors. MAKUSTIK FeinMikro elements, in addition to highly efficient sound absorption, also fulfill the flexibility in the area of application. The non-directional and invisible perforation allows unlimited freedom in form and design.  Lighting design and execution:
