The more soft surfaces you have, the more sound you can absorb. Acoustic baffles are filled with sound-absorbing material to interrupt the flow of sound waves and minimize echo.
Exactly how many you need depends on the space and the type of sound.
Low-frequency sounds, often caused by generators and manufacturing equipment, are the most difficult to absorb. You’ll need more baffles to get the job done. We also recommend the 4” thick absorption material for industrial settings. It gives you double the absorption material of the standard product.
If your budget doesn’t allow you to hang baffles from every beam, start with a few and then test the noise levels to measure the effect. With just two anchor points, free-hanging sound baffles are easy to install wherever you need them.
The objective is to prevent the sound to hit hard surfaces to give the sound soft materials to absorb in to.
