Choosing the right Acoustic solution

Choosing the right acoustic solution

If a space hasn’t been planned and designed properly, it can be highly unpleasant and distracting being there. Often the sound reverberation and noise makes it difficult to communicate, concentrate or interact effectively.
That’s why it’s so important that acoustic solutions are scoped with “real life”, day-to-day space usage in mind –
and with a clear understanding of the capabilities of the chosen product specification.

How much noise your acoustic ceiling and wall panels can actually absorb is entirely dependent on the depth and type of material used (behind the fabric facing).
Here’s a typical product absorption table using our 25mm or 50mm system:

Novawall gives you access to a vast fabric library

JBH-designed and manufactured in the UK, Versa-Tile is a multi-surface sound absorption panel which achieves up to Class A acoustic absorption. Living up to its name, Versa-Tile sound panels are incredibly versatile. They can be used on ceilings or walls, and designed either to be fixed or accessible. They also come in a huge range of fabrics so you can customise your space exactly.

Take your pick from a huge database of fabrics – all researched and installed in thousands of projects. You’ll find detailed information about the fabric content, backing types, acoustic transparency and any known installation issues. Even better? If a fabric’s not already included in our database, we’ll order a sample and test it for you.

The unique design of the Novawall extrusions allow for precise matching of repeats and designs at vertical, horizontal and diagonal seams. Therefore, the designer is not limited to selecting fabrics without patterns or repeats.
