Solutions to any acoustic requirements

Knauf Danoline acoustic materials enable you to create acoustic solutions that meet your specific reverberation requirements.

Depending on the construction of the ceiling and the perforation design, Knauf Danoline products can absorb up to 90% of the sound that hits the ceiling surface.

When calculating the amount of Knauf Danoline acoustic material required to meet a given reverberation time, it is important to consider:

  1. How the ceiling is constructed
  2. The shape of the room and position of acoustic materials
  3. The amount of furniture in the finished room
  4. The purpose of the room

1) CEILING CONSTRUCTION

Ceiling construction refers to the acoustic material used, as well as the ceiling system itself. The amount of sound absorbed depends on the installation depth of the ceiling and whether or not the cavity is filled with mineral wool.

2) SHAPE OF THE ROOM

The shape of the room defines the movement of sound waves within it. The position of acoustic materials should be determined by the way the sound moves in that particular room, to ensure optimal acoustic efficiency.

3) FURNITURE

Furniture is an acoustic material in itself. To avoid too much sound absorption, it is important to take into account the furnishing in the room.

4) PURPOSE OF THE ROOM

The purpose of the room is decisive when creating the right acoustic environment. In rooms intended for speech, such as classrooms and auditoriums, it is important to ensure a good level of sound spreading. In contrast, rooms for concentrated work require a high level of absorption.
