The installation of acoustic panels for churches is highly recommended and an increasingly popular solution. Why?

Regardless of the confession or type of religious services offered inside, all churches and temples have a common link:

  • They are spaces which hold large numbers and there are times when they are at full capacity.
  • An area from which a speaker or speakers talk to the listening public.
  • Sounds and messages, in both directions, in the form of lecture, sermon, dissertation, speech, prayer and, sometimes, also music and song.

With these conditions, it is common to suffer a typical sound effect of church acoustics called reverberation. Reverberation is the permanence of sound beyond the time required to properly hear and understand a message. Explained in a more technical manner, “reverberation time” is the time it takes for the sound to decay by 60 dB as received stood the sound emission source stops. In short, it is an annoying acoustic effect, even more so in rooms intended for listening to music or speeches: theatres, meeting rooms, auditoriums, halls, recording studios, offices, etc.

Inside the acoustic solutions for churches the most common material used for reverb control are acoustic panels for churches. Panels with high sound absorption capacity but, at the same time, presenting a top quality wood look and finish. They are normally used in newly constructed churches or in older temples when they are renovated or refurbished.

A good example of what these acoustic panels for churches can look like can be seen in our participation in the construction in 2015 of the new City Gates Church, in the heart of London. This Christian Church ensured good acoustics with the installation of 250 m² of acoustic panels Spigoacustic model 42-16-16 finished in veneered fire-retardant birch and machined for tongue and groove installation.
