HOW DO ACOUSTIC PANELS WORK?
By adding acoustic absorber panels to the walls and ceilings of your offices, meeting rooms or other business premises, it will dramatically reduce the reverberation time and make your space sound more coherent to work in. Plasterboard and glass surfaces are naturally reverberant - i.e. sound just bounces off them, so by adding some absorption to the surfaces, sound is absorbed more effectively. Typically, we try to achieve a 50% improvement, so if your space has a two-second reverb time, following an AgileAcoustics install it should drop to just one second – and this will make a significant difference.
CAN THE PRINT FACE BE EASILY CHANGED?
Yes, it can! We designed AgileART panels to ensure the printed face is separate to the acoustic panel and frame. So, when you want to freshen up the design all we have to change is the printed fabric face! We dye sublimate print onto acoustic fabrics, so the print quality is always excellent. Most of our clients supply their own imagery, either created by them or supplied from image libraries, such as iStock, 123rf.com or Adobe Stock.
WHAT ARE ACOUSTIC PANELS MADE FROM?
Agile panels are made from recycled polyester (rPET), which is derived from fibres recycled from plastic bottles etc. Our standard wall panel contains the equivalent of about 70, 50cl size bottles. As a business we don’t use glass fibre or foam-based acoustic panels - and you will be pleased to learn they are made right here in our manufacturing facility in Yorkshire!
DO YOU SHIP OVERSEAS?
We do! AgileART panels travel very well - and we can pack circa 14 wall panels onto a single pallet. They are easy to install, too, which means they make a perfect supply-only, quick-install acoustic system.
DO YOU MAKE SOUNDPROOFING PANELS?
Our panels are sound-absorbing, as they reduce echo/reverb within a space. Soundproofing products are generally focused on sound leakage - i.e. sound leaking from one space into another, and more often than not, soundproofing solutions are added at the construction stage. That said, we have had some clients report that our sound absorber panels have improved sound leakage.
WHERE DO YOU WORK?
We work for clients across the UK, typically in the corporate, education and hospitality sectors. We are in London most weeks, installing acoustic panels for clients. Site surveys can be useful but not always essential; let us know if you have a problem space and we can supply mock-ups and costings in the first instance, if required.
ARE THEY EASY TO INSTALL?
Yes, they are – very easy! We can take care of installation if you prefer, or we can simply send you a template and fitting guidance for easy self-installation.
