Acoustic Ceiling Rafts Frequently Asked Questions
What Is An Acoustic Raft?
The term acoustic refers to sound waves. When someone mentions room acoustics, they are referring to sound in spaces. This can be anything from the quality to the loudness of the sound. An acoustic raft is a horizontal or vertical panel that hangs from the ceiling. These panels contain sound-absorbing materials or are upholstered in noise-dampening fabrics.
Why Are Acoustic Rafts Better Than Other Acoustic Furnishings?
Acoustic ceiling rafts are just one of the options available to people who want to improve harsh soundscapes. When professionals realise that their soundscape is unmanageable, they can choose from a range of noise-reducing furnishings. Rafts do not necessarily have better sound-absorbing qualities than other furnishings but they are excellent for people who need to save space. Rafts are made for spaces that cannot accommodate wall panels or standing structures. They are particularly effective in spaces that have high ceilings. Sound waves can travel through the empty air above desks and tables with ease. Acoustic lighting rafts target those problem areas and illuminate workspaces at the same time.
