Acoustic Baffles, Düsseldorf
Improved room acoustic
The PPS. Group’s acoustic solutions – combining room acoustics and design into one product!
The Niggemeyer Bildproduktion fabricated 611 3000x400x50 mm sized acoustic baffles for the Stadtwerke Düsseldorf. Not only is the 100% polyester fleece material able to achieve extremely high sound absorption values (class A absorber), but it is also certified as B1 flame retardant in accordance with DIN 4102.
Due to the way the individual office spaces were designed, high volume levels arose in the open-plan office during certain peak personnel times; these hindered the employees’ concentration during their communications. Since the offices are open towards the top, sound practically “jumped” over the cubicle walls. Instead of installing horizontal ceiling sails, it was decided in meetings with Niggemeyer, the customer BOS Raum3 GmbH and acoustics engineer to use vertical sail installations as a solution, to accommodate a larger sound absorbing mass in the design.
The result turned out very gratifying with regard to looks and especially sound.
