  17. 17. DESIGN & GOOD ACOUSTICS Whether your project is an auditorium, hotel, university, office or music studio, architects and designers must consider every aspect of the acoustic environment they create. Good acoustics create comfortable spaces. Certain sounds need to be directionally steered while others are reduced or eliminated. It is therefore recommended to consult with an acoustician in order to achieve the required results. Woodfit can help in this process to create an aesthetically satisfying and acoustically adjusted environment. Sound absorption is attained by using perforated/ slotted panels or fabrics in combination with mineral wool and air space. Certain sounds need to be directionally steered Our various acoustic patterns are tested and documented to achieve known sound absorption while others are reduced or eliminated co-efficients for both walls and ceilings.

As an alternative to this type of surface treatment we can provide a range of other finishes. Although the results of these special surface treatments can be both exciting and appealing, colour consistency is imperative for successful results. Due to the nature of certain woods/veneers it can be very difficult to achieve the desired result and we therefore advise customers to confer with us on the suitability of finishes.
