Acoustic properties

Sound absorbing coating
The sound absorption characteristics of acoustic materials are based also on the size of the air gap between the type of paneling being considered and the ceiling or the wall.
Figure 1 shows the absorption curves of the Alfakel B 202 elements, as function of the frequency, for various distances of the elements from walls or ceiling.

Fig.1 – Impact of the size of the air gap.


The power of absorption of the Alfakel B 202 elements can be further enhanced by inserting in the air gap a layer of sound absorbing porous material such as Alfakel M.
The thicker is the layer of Alfakel M the higher is the absorption coefficient.
Figure 2 shows the various curves in relation to the thickness of the porous layer inserted for a distance of d=100 mm.

Double Absorbing Baffles

To create a double absorbing surface, 2 Alfakel B 202 panels can be bonded together. They are called “Baffles B 202/2” and they are used for practical reasons (for example, in consideration of the existing lighting system) or to meet particular acoustic requirements. In fact, the hanging Baffles B 202/2 for the same surface of absorption, yield same or higher values of absorption for the surface treated. The Baffles B 202/2 can be hung individually or assembled in banners or grids.
Figure 3 shows the Baffles B 202/2’s absorption curve as function of the frequency.

The Alfakel B 202 elements, as sound absorbing paneling for walls or ceilings, can be installed with traditional methods, such as profile frames either lengthwise or vertically, nailed on wooden strips or directly onto the walls. Installed with the correct frame, the panels can be mounted to attain the appropriate air gap desired.
The Baffles Alfakel B 202 can be hung from the ceiling on hooks, metal bars, etc. and anchored onto existing structures.
