Acoustic & Soundproof Moveable Walls

Acoustic & Soundproof Moveable Walls


One of the issues arising from a having a multi-functional space is that when the area is to be divided into two separate rooms it is likely that you will not want sound to be travelling between the two. This would be the case in either an educational premises like a school or in an event space where two different functions would be taking place at the same time. In commercial buildings, an office for example, it may or may not be so important for the airborne sound to be diminished.

Therefore choosing the type of moveable wall or folding partition that will best suit the purpose of the room will need to be carefully considered. The materials used for the partition will affect the acoustic properties of the wall as some are more soundproof than others. Also if the partition is made up of different elements i.e. including doors and glazing, each having different sound reduction characteristics the overall level of reduction will be lower than if the divider had been made of just one material. The leakage of sound through the surround structure of the building must also be taken into consideration.
