What is Acoustic Lighting?

Acoustic Lighting combines a lighting source with sound-absorbing materials, to provide a luminaire that helps reduce unwanted noise in a space. More office environments are embracing not just flexible working areas with hot-desking and breakout spaces, but also the style of open ceilings and visible services. This can lead to hard surfaces throughout a workspace, which can give an unwanted reflection of sound and can make an environment noisier than it should be.

Material Details

Synergy Creativ is proud to use recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) in our acoustic lighting. PET is a form of polyester, which is usually used in plastic bottles for drinks, detergent, salad dressings and the like. 

Composition – 100% PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) with a 60% recycled content
Environmental – Acoustic material has a 60% recycled content, and is recyclable.
Standards – Fire specification – EN13501-1 Class B–s1,d0 and Acoustic performance – EN ISO 354:2003
Non-hazardous – no formaldehyde binders are used in the manufacturing process.
Lifetime – PET is not affected by moisture, mould or mildew and will not rot or deteriorate under normal conditions.

Frequencies of sound

There are two aspects to sound which dictate how well we can hear it, the first is the volume, or loudness, which is measured in decibels. The second is the frequency, or whether it is a low rumbling sound or a high pitched squeak. Humans can detect sounds in the range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz.

Examples of sounds and their frequencies:

  • Tuba ~ 32Hz
  • A truck driving past ~ 250Hz
  • Male baritone voice ~ 400Hz
  • Typical vocal range ~500-3000Hz

Noise Reduction Coefficient

Acoustics is quite a complex subject. In essence, the NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) is a rating in the range from 0 to 1. If a material has a rating of 0, then the material absorbs no sound, and all sound is reflected back into the space. If a material has a rating of 1 then the material absorbs all the sound, and so none is reflected back into the room.
