The prepwork for setting up an acoustic stretch fabric system for your studio

The first step is to assess the sonic environment of the room. To evaluate the state of the room, you need to look at the building’s acoustic insulation and acoustic absorption. To do this you have to look at the materials used in construction, the partitions in your building, the furniture, and the windows. This allows you to calculate the acoustic absorption coefficient, which is calculated from the number of sound waves coming into contact with a material. The highest this can be is 1.00, which means 100% sound absorption. You’re aiming to make an acoustic absorption coefficient of 0.75 or greater to maximize sound absorption and minimize reverberation. You don’t have to worry about doing this though, we will take care of this for you!
