8 Products That Improve Restaurant Acoustics

No one can ignore the cacophony that defines the modern restaurant. Or if you are working on a new restaurant design, you’ll need to take acoustics into consideration. In this article, we will show you several options of PET Felt application to improve acoustics.


PET Felt acoustic panels

Go big or go home, that is the motto when you are working on acoustics. Large, reflective surfaces like floors, walls and ceilings have the biggest impact on reverberation time. Basically, sound needs to be absorbed, otherwise it will just keep bouncing  back and forth, a.k.a. reverberation. 
Our acoustic panels made from recycled PET Felt offer great sound-absorbing qualities. When used on walls and ceilings, these panels absorb and block soundwaves. When these panels are mounted with a gap or on top of other materials their acoustic values drastically improves. You can download the complete report from our download library.

Mute Flow PET Felt Acoustic Panel

The Mute Flow PET Felt panel is a ready-to-use solution for both acoustic and aesthetic purposes. Incorporate it in the design from the start and retrofit it later as you please. Due to the wool-like structure of PET Felt, Mute Flow offers a soft and warm look. Suitable for co-working spaces and public areas such as restaurants and hotels.

Mute Flow PET Felt panel is available in 11 appealing colours.

The Mute Fit panel is developed after the Mute Flow. We noticed that sometimes the Mute Flow couldn't make a nice corner or door opening. We made an algorithm with a special curtain-like pattern. The pattern ensures that any piece cut out of the panel could have flat edges. In this way, the pieces of any width can be seamlessly connected with the rest of the installation.

Apply Mute panels on the walls to reduce noise where it’s needed the most. A perfect solution for offices, open places and restaurants. Also great in combination as a base with our Mute Flow and Mute Fit panels, for even better noise reduction. 


Onde PET Felt Acoustic Panel

The Onde allows you to get creative without compromising on acoustics. It is a playful take on the traditional acoustic panel. Although it is mostly placed on walls, the Onde Panel can be attached to the ceiling or hung horizontally. In this way, you can create sound-dampening clouds wherever it is needed.

Onde PET Felt Acoustic Panel is available in 11 colours.

Breaking the room with acoustic room dividers

Room dividers are great because they are flexible and they allow you to create instant privacy in a larger space. We offer several acoustic PET Felt room dividers.

Creating privacy with workplace dividers 

People generate most of the hum. So stopping the sound at the source, before it becomes noise, is a big win in improving acoustics. That makes workplace dividers perfect for co-working spaces. With workplace dividers, you can create a sense of privacy and they’re ideal for dampening sound.   


AK 1 PET Felt Workplace Divider

With these flexible workplace dividers workers can experience the sensation of privacy without isolating themselves. Due to the PET Felt and the acoustic foam filling, it also has great sound-dampening properties.

Combine the AK 1 with the AK 2 and presto!  You have a private working space in an open space. Made from the same materials as the AK 1, so it also has great acoustic values.
