The Acoustic FWC™ Philosophy
The Acoustic FWC™ philosophy looks at every surface as an opportunity for noise minimisation.
Noise is one of the great problems of the modern world. Large cities are becoming more densely populated. People are now living in closer proximity to one another, with the activities of some often disturbing the rest-time of others. Where shared spaces for work and study have been designed to promote creativity and collaboration, too often these result in noise fatigue and lower productivity.
So, how do we go about Making Quiet?
Fundamentally, a room is a box. Noise made inside the box reflects and reverberates off every hard surface. This reflected sound adds to the source of the noise, and amplifies it as the noise bounces around the room. In this way, a room is like a resonance chamber or the sound box on a guitar.
Making Quiet™ is all about inhibiting sound from being reflected. Instead, this sound can be absorbed. The emphasis here is that every surface that contributes to the problem can also be harnessed to help solve the problem.
Acoufelt has a simple philosophy that is as brilliant in its simplicity as it is effective. We call it the Acoustic FWC™ philosophy and it drives innovative Acoustic FWC™ solutions from Acoufelt. The Acoustic FWC™ philosophy looks at every surface as an opportunity for noise minimisation.
A box – or cube – has six sides. Six internal surfaces that contribute to either reflecting noise or Making Quiet. These surfaces are: one floor, four walls and one ceiling. Acoufelt acoustic carpet tiles featuring QuietBack™ can be used to absorb noise reflected from the floors, and walls and ceilings can be treated with acoustic panels featuring QuietPrint™ – a holistic solution.
The Acoustic FWC™ philosophy drives our commitment to thought-leadership, resulting in innovations that are complete – acoustic solutions that consider every face of the box.
