Utilising the results of our initial tests which were carried out using an absorption tube, we developed acoustic panels and baffles that we considered would be the most effective considering a balance of cost / aesthetics / performance.
Our acoustic panels were then measured for absorption by testing them at Sound Research Laboratories (UKAS Accredited) in accordance with BS EN ISO 354:2003. A comprehensive range of 6 types of acoustic panels and baffles were tested measuring the Absorption Coefficient of each of these systeems. As a result of this testing we are now able to offer a wide range of products offering varying Absorption Coefficients classified from B to E.
The market appeared to require/prefer two types of panels, perforated panels (panel type A and B below) and slotted panels (panel type C and D below)

Solid Timber Baffles Types
From an aesthetic point of view the solid timber baffles or battens provide a stunning finish to any building. We therefore researched, developed and tested solid timber baffles in tandem with acoustic absorption materials.
