Acoustic Lighting Frequently Asked Questions
Does Light Absorb Sound?
It is a common misconception that light absorbs sound. Light does not alter sound waves, which means that a standard light fixture will not reduce the harshness of background noise. The only way to combat loud sounds and echoes is to invest in acoustic lighting.
What Is Acoustic Lighting?
Acoustic lights are made up of a lighting unit which is then surrounded by acoustic materials such as moulded felt. This innovative acoustic product range is ideal for its noise dampening qualities whilst providing an additional function of visually enhancing the environment they are installed. This make them great for shared workbenches and open plan offices.
Sound-absorbing lights are just one alternative to acoustic wall panels, which are far more well-known and widely used. To create this kind of furnishing, we take a light fixture and surround it in a casing. The casing is typically comprised of moulded felt that is upholstered in noise-dampening materials.
By switching your normal light fixture for a sound-absorbing light fixture, you can revolutionise quiet workspaces. Professionals and students find it much easier to get their work done when this multi-functional furnishing is absorbing unwanted sound waves above them.
Do You Sell Acoustic Baffle Lighting?
Yes! Abstracta Trumpet Acoustic Light is a good example of acoustic baffle lighting. Ceiling baffles are any panels that are suspended vertically from the ceiling. This kind of panel is designed to maximise the surface area of the sound-absorbent materials. They are especially useful in open-plan office spaces, which often have high ceilings. When there is lots of space between furnishings and the ceiling, sound waves have ample room to move through the air and cause chaos. Baffles absorb sound waves before they have the opportunity to bounce off walls and create distracting, unwanted noises.
Who Needs Sound-Absorbing Light Fixtures?
Sound-absorbing lights are perfect for anyone who wants to kill two birds with one stone. Our lights combat harsh soundscapes at the same time as they illuminate important areas. We recommend hanging acoustic baffle lighting above desks, study spaces, and workbenches. Our baffles are an essential part of shared spaces all over the UK. The high-quality, noise-dampening materials give staff and students the ability to focus on their projects and complete important deadlines.
