Acoustic Panels: Cutting through the Product Noise

Choosing interior acoustic products that contain fewer hazardous materials will improve the overall interior environmental quality without compromising designs.

Controlling excessive interior sound is critical for creating a warm, welcoming space. This can be particularly important in low-embodied-carbon interiors that use structure as finish, such as polished concrete floors or exposed beams—materials that do not absorb sound well.  

There are a variety of strategies used to achieve this, but for this article we are going to look at acoustic panels—one of the most common acoustic products— and their health and environmental impacts.
