Pantone Peach Fuzz 13-1023 acoustic panels and other decorative elements with the Colour of the Year 2024

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments

Yes, our next decorative project could include interior cladding and acoustic panels in Pantone Peach Fuzz 13-1023, the Colour of the Year in 2024. But also, Viva Magenta 18-1750, which was the Colour of the Year in 2023, Very Peri 17-3938 (2022) or Very Peri 17-3938 + Illuminating 13-0647 (both 2021). We can lacquer our wood solutions from the Spigogroup catalogues in any reference from the RAL, PANTONE and NCS colour charts. This means we can always be up to date and that we can offer any colour that suits a project, whether for corporate indications or simply, out of creative impulse. These are some of the Spigogroup decorative and architectural acoustic elements that we can customize with the color we want, also with Pantone Peach Fuzz 13-1023, Color of the Year 2024, or its equivalents in the RAL or NCS color charts.   Acoustic panels and wood cladding  with sound-absorbing capacity from the Spigotec and Spigoacustic families. Perfect for keeping reverberation at bay and achieving the acoustic comfort we need.   Sports furniture from the Spigocompac family. The phenolic panel with which we manufacture benches, dividers, lockers and phenolic cabins can also be customized with the color we want.   Spigoline solid wood slat cladding, both on ceilings and walls, where we can choose the color that we like the most, in this case from the RAL chart.   Spigodoor wood doors, and not only the simplest entry doors, but also technical doors such as acoustic doors or fire doors that can have finishes with any PANTONE, RAL or NCS reference.               If you liked this post about Pantone Peach Fuzz 13-1023 acoustic panels, you may also be interested in:   - 21 Articles on acoustic conditioning and insulation with wood - Ecological panels with SPIGOLINE PET slats: Solid slats or MDF slats? - Restaurant décor: the 3 mistakes you can’t make in 2024 - The importance of acoustics in coliving or cohousing

Definition of acoustic conditioning and soundproofing, what is the difference?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction No Comments

The definition of acoustic conditioning and the definition of soundproofing explain the great difference between the two terms, which are often confused. Acoustic conditioning is the set of actions that we carry out in a room to control the annoying sound imbalances produced by reverberation that hinder proper musical hearing and the intelligibility of messages, speeches and conversations. 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. Soundproofing, on the other hand, is an action by which we sound insulate a space from its surroundings, thereby preventing external noises (traffic, machinery, environment, etc.) from reaching the interior and also preventing the sound produced in the interior from reaching adjoining spaces or the exterior of the building. Thus, while acoustic conditioning only affects and relates to the interior of a room and the quality of sound it provides, soundproofing is more concerned with the relationship of the room to the outside and the level of noise and sound transmitted between the exterior and interior (and vice versa). To undertake acoustic conditioning, acoustic panels, like those offered by Spigogroup, which correct the effects of reverberation, are used. Soundproofing, on the other hand, requires sound insulating materials that prevent sound transmission between rooms and the outside.       If you liked this post about definition of acoustic conditioning, you may also be interested in:   - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - Interior design of hotels: the importance of acoustics in hotel reception areas - 24 articles on wood acoustic panels and the projects where they are used - Wood slat acoustic panels for increased acoustic comfort

Artificial intelligence, acoustics and architecture

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, News No Comments

AI is here to stay and the concepts of Artificial Intelligence, Acoustics and Architecture are unavoidably going to go hand in hand from now on. The integration of artificial intelligence in the field of architecture and design opens up a world of new opportunities to improve the acoustic quality and efficiency of built spaces. The way sound propagates and is perceived can affect the comfort and functionality of building and, with the help of AI, architects can better understand and control their acoustics. Using deep learning algorithms, machines can analyse and predict the behaviour of sound in a given environment. This allows designers to adjust the configuration of spaces and the layout of architectural elements to achieve higher acoustic quality. For example, AI can help to determine the degree of absorption and optimal placement of acoustic panels used for reverberation control in acoustic conditioning work. In addition, AI can be used to simulate and evaluate the acoustic performance of spaces prior to their construction. This reduces the need for costly physical prototypes and allows designers to test different configurations virtually. By accurately predicting how sound will behave in a given environment, more informed decisions can be made to improve acoustics from the earliest stages of design. The application of AI in architectural acoustics not only helps designers. End users of spaces can also benefit. From offices and educational facilities to auditoriums and homes, the integration of AI into acoustic design contributes to the creation of more pleasant and functional environments.           If you liked this post about Artificial Intelligence, acoustics and architecture, you may also be interested in:   - Acoustic panels for exhibition halls, museums and galleries - How wood panels help to achieve VERDE certification - Flexible wood slat cladding: so acoustics does not limit creativity - Customised acoustic panels made to measure according to the requirements of each project

International Noise Awareness Day

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments

Today, the last Wednesday in April, is a very special day for those of us who are devoted to improving acoustics in rooms, spaces and buildings: International Noise Awareness Day. Numerous studies regularly carried out by companies and institutions reveal that the high level of noise produced by traffic and human activity causes serious health complications for millions of people: damage to the cardiovascular system, sleep disorders, anxiety, memory loss, respiratory and endocrine system alterations, and so on. Poor acoustics also causes learning difficulties for children and increases stress in office settings. On this day we want to raise awareness of the importance of protecting ourselves from noise and noise pollution and ensuring healthy spaces where we can enjoy the necessary acoustic comfort that we all desire. Carrying out acoustic conditioning with acoustic panels, such as those manufactured by Spigogroup, controls reverberation, thereby avoiding the need to raise the volume of conversations due to intelligibility issues and helping to maintain optimum sound levels for health. Protection against noise pollution is based on three pillars: good soundproofing, to protect us from external noise, proper acoustic conditioning, to assure acoustic comfort indoors; and regulations limiting noise emissions. Let us remember that managing noise is an investment, not an expense, as it will cut health care bills and increase productivity in classrooms and workplaces.         If you liked this post about improving acoustics, you may also be interested in:   - Acoustic conditioning of classrooms: calculation of reverberation time and recommendations - What are micro-perforated acoustic panels?
