Utilising the results of our initial tests which were carried out using a sound absorption tube, we developed acoustic panels and baffles that we considered would be the most effective considering a balance of cost / aesthetics / performance.
Our acoustic panels were then measured for sound absorption by testing them at Sound Research Laboratories (UKAS Accredited) in accordance with BS EN ISO 354:2003. A comprehensive range of 6 types of acoustic panels and baffles were tested measuring the Absorption Coefficient of each of these systeems. As a result of this testing we are now able to offer a wide range of products offering varying Absorption Coefficients classified from B to E.
Acoustic Joinery tested two types of panels, perforated panels (panel type A and B test results below) and slotted panels (panel type C and D test results below).

Solid Timber Baffles Types
From an aesthetic point of view the solid timber baffles or battens provide a stunning finish to any building. We therefore researched, developed and tested solid timber baffles in tandem with acoustic absorption materials. Timber slats with equal spacing’s were then tested in tandem with acoustic absorption materials, the test results of which are outlined below.
