Understanding Acoustics

Whilst acoustics is a science and requires complex maths and models it can also be broken down into a few basic elements:

absorption. the use of materials to absorb sound energy and reduce reflection

blocking. the use of sound barriers to prevent sound travelling in straight paths 

cover. ensuring sufficient background sound levels to promote concentration and speech privacy

Acoustics by Design are experienced in identifying the acoustic issues and applying a combination of ABC solutions to solve them. Over the years we have developed a number of products and solutions to help prevent or solve the issues.
