The benefits of free-hanging acoustic baffles
When designing a new build or renovating many factors have to be considered such as aesthetics of the design, functionality of the solutions, ease of installation and much more. Uniting all this can be a challenging and time-consuming task.
For the acoustic ceiling, there are many options and solution types to consider, from suspended ceilings to islands and baffles, each of them with its own advantages in relation to the needs of the specific build.
One of the increasingly popular acoustic solutions are baffles. Baffles are great for certain type of installations and can come with several benefits such as:
- Baffles represent the perfect solution when wanting daylight to enter unhindered, for example via windows located in the roof space.
- The alignment and spacing of individual baffles can be determined by the designer, and thus allows for a wide range of design expressions and aesthetics within each ceiling.
- Baffles are suspended vertically and so do not block the ceiling soffit, thereby allowing the soffit to be sufficiently exposed if required to act as a thermal mass for heating/cooling the building
- Baffles are an ideal solution when needing to design or renovate a noisy interior space, where frequent or unhindered access to services located in the ceiling soffit needs to be maintained.
Baffles can be installed with minimal disruption and therefore represent a very fast and efficient means to correctly accommodate a room’s acoustic properties. With our installation videos and step-wise guidance, you can install baffles perfectly in your next installation and exploit the benefits above. Watch the video below to see how.
