Acoustics is a silent determinant of how much we enjoy spending time in a room, particularly in the case of a hotel room. So how can we leverage acoustics to ensure that we design pleasant spaces.
The quality of a room’s acoustics is increasingly considered in the interior design process, and for good reason. Not only do great acoustics increase wellness, productivity, and concentration, but they also contribute to an optimal hotel experience.
Acoustics is a great determinant of the overall success for a business – be it a shop, a restaurant, a hotel or a conference center. Because of this, interior designers and interior architects are increasingly asked to design with acoustics as well as aesthetics in mind.
CurtainWave SQ by Acoustica is the easy and simple way to block out sound using existing curtains and window décor. A high performance noise barrier and vibration damping material, CurtainWave SQ is effective at absorbing noise even in heavily-glazed rooms. Combining acoustics and aesthetics, CuratinWave SQ maximises noise energy reduction by absorption, improving acoustics in rooms and enclosed spaces while providing strong visual qualities to suit any decor.
CuratinWave SQ is ;
- an easy sound solution that fits in with existing décor
- a solution that can be attached to any window hanging material
- a solution for blocking light and is therefore energy-saving
- able to keep rooms insulated, lowering energy costs
- a patented lightweight material
- able to give the same acoustic performance as material twice its weight
CurtainWave® SQ is a flexible noise barrier and vibration damping material. CurtainWave® SQ was designed for backing curtains to increase the noise attenuation given by glass. It is like installing a double glazing system with the advantage to also blocking sunlight. CurtainWave® can be directly sewn onto the curtain material or attached to a separate fabric or ‘block-out’ material. Due to it’s patented micro-cellular composition, CurtainWave SQ achieves the same acoustic rating as a mass loaded flexible nose barrier 2 x heavier, ie. 4.5kg/m2. CurtainWave is only 2.3kg/m2 (nominal) CurtainWave has a tested* acoustic rating of Rw 27.
