Audio Acoustic panels

The importance of good acoustics is often overlooked when designing spaces such as meeting rooms, classrooms, theatres, restaurants and other places where people come together. This can be a costly mistake, however. Imagine trying to hold a confidential meeting when what’s being discussed can be heard outside the room, or trying to have a comfortable conversation in a loud, resonant open plan restaurant.

In both these situations, and many more, acoustic treatments such as acoustic panels and sound absorption can be the answer. Acoustic panels are absorption products designed to control noise and reverberation while eliminating echo, with the ultimate aim of improving sound quality.

Acoustic panels come in a variety of options and different price points making it possible to find a solution for every interior and budget. And remember, the intention is to create a comfortable room, not kill all reverberation so less can be more in this area.

When deciding on the acoustic treatment that works best for your space, factors such as the materials used to construct walls, floor and ceiling, room size, windows and furniture in the space should all be considered.

Ecler’s Points of View range was created for residential and commercial spaces, such as restaurants, offices, hotels, sports centres or classrooms, with a focus on aesthetics as well as acoustics. Designed to solve a range of acoustic problems, the panels will ensure a significant reduction of reverberation time in a room and can be quickly and easily installed for immediate impact.

Atmosphere acoustic panels from Quadra can be a great choice where budgets are tight as they can be designed into the fabric of a space. The panels can be used as wall coverings, screens and dividers, artwork and desk dividers as wall and ceiling panels and acoustic baffles. Available in a wide range of colours and easy to clean, this hardwearing panel is a truly versatile solution.

 

Classroom Case Study

Grange Park Primary School

 

Features of the site include state-of-the-art classrooms, more welcoming communal and reception areas, along with outside areas including a field, forest and allotment.  The entire planning, design and build project took around 10 years, with construction lasting around 18 months.

The intention was to move students out of the old Calcott site, which was in a state of disrepair, and into a new space that featured larger classrooms, more outside space and new teaching equipment.

This included an AV upgrade which was funded through the Building Schools for the Future programme at Telford & Wrekin Council, which saw interactive screens installed in all 17 classrooms.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most asked Questions about Classrooms

There are no hard and fast rules here as it depends very much on the style of learning being employed, however we would suggest considering interactive whiteboards, LED displays projectors and screen, videoconferencing tools and perhaps even an audio system. CDEC’s experts are always on hand to provide more specific details depending on your needs, so get in touch now.
There are two key ways to encourage user uptake: speak to teachers before starting any project to make sure you understand how spaces are used, any pain points or concerns, and what outcomes they’d like to achieve; and ensure users are comfortable and confident using any new technology. CDEC will undertake comprehensive user training to achieve this and to make sure teachers are clear on the benefits of any new tech.
Certainly. We are experienced in projects of all shapes and sizes and will work with you to achieve the desired outcomes whatever you needs.
This is all about understanding how spaces will be used now and in the future and, fortunately, the experts at CDEC understand the very latest technology and how it can best be implemented. For example, we’ll be able to advise on scalable technology that will make it easier to add components as needed. Similarly, software-based devices are a sensible option here as new features and updates can be automatically pushed out. Perhaps most important when it comes to the longevity of any AV installation is having a maintenance plan in place, so speak to your CDEC representative about the options available here.
This can be a huge benefit to both users and tech teams. When it comes to users it means they can go into any classroom and immediately recognise the technology within it; there’s no learning curve and no time wasted at the start of lessons trying to figure out how a specific device works. For AV/IT teams it is much easier to troubleshoot and manage a smaller range of devices, relieving pressure on what can be overstretched teams.
