Whitepaper gazes upward: ceilings, an underrated means of realising excellent acoustics

The importance of good acoustics is often underestimated and it can be difficult to establish a direct, data-based relation between acoustics and labour productivity.

Hunter Douglas has placed this topic on the agenda with a new whitepaper. The document presents ceilings as an ideal means of realising optimal acoustics. The whitepaper looks at four key areas.

In healthcare, for instance, good acoustics contribute to better recovery of patients, while in schools they improve students’ learning performance. In office spaces, good acoustics improve labour productivity. In public spaces, such as restaurants, noise absorption is also vital.
