Reduce Noise in Cafeteria – Sontext Panels

Murano Acoustic Panels with a dark walnut veneer have been  installed in the suspended ceiling grid of a cafeteria, as shown in the picture. The panels were supplied with a 3mm round hole perforation pattern, resulting in a stylish ceiling area that also provides the required amount of sound absorption.

Sontext Marketing Manager Geoff Coghlan said “ARTAS Architects chose this product and finish. This is an ideal application for Murano Acoustic Panels, with this particular perforation pattern – as the space is intended to be used as a cafeteria. The 3mm holes are barely visible from floor level, so it doesn’t look like a typical perforated panel. Also, this perforation pattern has a tested Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.65 in a suspended ceiling application. This will provide sufficient sound absorption to minimise reverberation in the space, without deadening the “buzz”, which is desirable for social meeting space like this.  If the application was a library, or similar quiet area, we’d recommend Murano or Serenity Acoustic Panels with a much higher NRC.”

As the picture shows, services such as airconditioning diffusers, lighting, etc., were also easily incorporated into the ceiling panels.
