ASC SoundPlank can take a noisy office and tame the sound without
overly deadening it. If an office has large areas of solid surfaces
such as windows, sheetrock ceilings or hardwood floors, it very
likely suffers from a noise problem. The SoundPlank tames this noise
by creating sonic “speed bumps”, slowing down the velocity
of reflected sound. They can be installed on any flat surface on
2-3 foot centers, with 15% coverage per wall being the ideal. If
one wall is unsuitable for SoundPlanks, as in the case of windows,
the opposite wall can have 30% coverage to compensate the difference.
SoundPlanks are standard sized at 6 or 8 inches wide by 60 inches
long, and can be ordered custom sized to fit any application.
standard SoundPlank measures 6” or 8” by 60” in
length by 2” thick. There is much more than a simple fabric
covered fiberglass block here, our SoundPlanks are fully encapsulated
by an acoustically transparent membrane to prevent glass fibers
from entering your room. Each Plank also comes with our patented
diffuser strip built-in and special end hardening to improve durability.
Finally, we cover each Plank with acoustically transparent Guilford
fabric. ASC’s own fabrication technicians will hand build
and meticulously assemble each Plank to a quality standard only
available from ASC. SoundPlanks are available covered with 5 in-stock
Guilford of Maine 701 fabrics, or choose from many special order
colors to match your specific needs. Custom sizes and thicknesses
are also available.
SoundPlanks Stop Office Noise In typical offices with ceiling tile and carpet,
vertical sound propagation is well controlled, while horizontal
sound is free to bounce off walls and ceiling tiles. As long as
there is only one person in the office, this is OK. If there’s
more than one person, noise will quickly build up as each person
struggles to be heard. Adding SoundPlanks will slow horizontal reflective
bounce, thus balancing sound waves and quieting the office.
