absorption panels

Project: EWC College Tembisa Campus

Product specified:

82 off 1200mm wide x 600mm high laser cut White Beech wood veneer acoustic absorption panels covering approximately 18 meters x 3.3 meters wall

“Ekurhuleni West TVET College is situated in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality in Gauteng Province in South Africa. EWC operates within a broad band and diverse communities and comprises of the following six (6) campuses: Alberton, Boksburg, Germiston, Kathorus, (in Katlehong/ Vosloorus/ Thokoza), Kempton (in Kempton Park) and Tembisa.” (http://www.ewc.edu.za/)

Aluglass Bautech is proud to have designed, supplied and installed White Beech wood veneer acoustic absorption panels covering approximately 18 meters x 3.3 meters wall at the EWC College – Tembisa Campus.

82 individual laser cut white beech veneer panels were manufactured in order to reduce the reverberated sound is this large area, especially necessary when there are a large number of people present. Acoustical panels and baffles or acoustic absorption panels can successfully address the issues of reverberated sound and high frequency reverberation times.

What is sound?

Sound is produced by an object vibrating, which changes the air pressure, and this causes the air to create waves. Like water, sound waves will find the easiest path to penetrate any gap (also known as flanking path). The behaviour of sound depends on materials, temperature, and air humidity. In an enclosed space sound waves can then either be reflected, absorbed, or transmitted. Learn more about ‘Reflection, Absorption and Transmission of sound…what is the difference?’ here.

In summary – Absorption Panels
  • reduce unwanted reflections and echos,
  • have a noise reduction coefficient (NRC’s) range from 0.5 to 0.85,
  • acoustic panels can be fitted to either walls or ceilings and
  • complements our range of acoustic products.

Acoustics are not only important in very large areas as seen in this project, but acoustics are also essential in any auditorium, meeting room, classroom, hospital, hotel, and restaurant.
