Acoustic panelling is a practical and aesthetic solution for reducing and controlling noise in building interiors. Acoustic panels absorb sound waves rather than reflecting them, decreasing the intensity of sound in the process. Acoustic panels attempt to “soak up” as much sound as possible.

What is the Difference Between Acoustic Panels and Soundproofing?

Whereas acoustic panels reduce, mitigate and control sound travelling through a room, soundproofing aims to prevent any sound getting inside a room from the outside and escaping it. Similar to waterproofing which makes a container “water-tight”, soundproofing aims to make a room “sound-tight” so to speak. Complete soundproofing is technically difficult and expensive process. The goal of acoustic panels is to provide a cost effective and practical option for controlling sound levels within a space.
