Last week I went to have my hearing tested at my local ‘Specsavers’ who, if you didn’t already know, also have in-house audiology experts providing hearing tests. I was met by a lovely lady called Sue, who began by asking me some questions which she filled out in a form. The main question being – “what is the reason for your visit, do you have reason to believe you are having a problem with your hearing?”. My honest answer was this… “my wife [...]

2020 will surely be one to remember. From the Australian bushfire crisis to Harry and Meghan stepping back from their royal duties. From the Trump impeachment drama to the growing escalation between Iran and the US. It was also in early 2020 when many of us first heard of the word ‘Coronavirus’. COVID-19 more commonly referred to as coronavirus (the virus that causes it) which, is a new illness that can affect the lungs and airways. Although some of the earlier cases date [...]

As acoustic solutions become commonplace in commercial spaces, so has the demand to create unique and innovative sound absorbing products that serve not just a functional purpose, but which strike the eye. In recent years there has been an explosion of new acoustic products on the market that could only have been dreamed of in times past. These products blur the lines [...]

Metamaterials: Soundproofing The Future

By |2018-09-27T09:50:22+00:00October 30th, 2015|Sustainability, Sound Proofing|

Noisy neighbours, deafening air conditioning units, those disconcerting aeroplane creaks and whirs. These are all noisy nuisances that we think of as part and parcel of our day to day lives. Until now. It turns out some smart people in the worlds of science and engineering have been busy exploiting new discoveries made in metamaterials to develop new mediums that could effectively mute everyday objects and mechanisms. Metamaterials are artificially created materials, often down to individual cell units. By exploiting the theories of negative indexing [...]

By |2020-01-09T12:19:47+00:00August 5th, 2014|Acoustic Panels, Sound Absorption, Sound Masking, Office Acoustics, Restaurant Acoustics|

You may have heard of sound masking and even looked into it as a possible solution for your room acoustic issues. There's no denying that it is an practical fix in some cases and it certainly has its advantages. But how does it compete with sound absorption - which is often perceived as the most effective way of creating a comfortable acoustic environment? Here is our take on working with two very different solutions. What is sound absorption? Sound absorption refers to the [...]

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation – and 5 minutes to ruin it” Business magnate Warren Buffet’s quote couldn’t be truer than it is today. Apart from word-of-mouth recommendation, online opinions are considered the most trustworthy source of information today, so businesses can’t afford to ignore the fact that a bad review can leave their reputation hanging in the balance. Restaurants in particular are at the forefront of business sectors where online reputation can be a decider as to whether they [...]

The Use of Acoustic Panels as Notice Boards – Ecophon’s Safety Assurance

By |2017-08-11T11:13:18+00:00May 2nd, 2014|Office Acoustics, School Acoustics|

Notice Boards are often at the heart of offices, schools and other working environments creating hubs for notices, work and other important documents. Whilst acoustic panels are, practically speaking, ideal for use as notice boards little has been researched into the safety of using sound absorbers as display panels. When pins are used on acoustic panels, a tiny amount of glass wool can potentially be omitted into the surrounding atmosphere – too much of this could be dangerous to room users. Particular concern [...]
