All-Weather Acoustic Panels Absorb Sound and Resist the Elements
Why do you need all-weather acoustic panels?
MBI Weather Resistant Exterior Acoustic Panels reduce echoes within outdoor applications such as amphitheaters, pavilions, amusement facilities, noise enclosures, and transportation noise barriers.
Outdoor acoustic panels absorb sound and resist the elements
Sound traveling at its normal 768 miles per hour reflects off of hard surfaces, producing excessive reverberation within the space. Extensive testing shows that MBI Weather Resistant Exterior Panels reduce reverberation times by one-half second to five seconds and sound intensity levels by two to twelve decibels. This reduction makes a drastic difference in how tolerable the noise is.
All Weather Acoustic Panels Case Study: Sweetwater Performance Pavilion
In its early stages, Sweetwater Performance Pavilion experienced some detrimental reverberation times and lacked the acoustical clarity required for a great live music experience. The fast-moving sound was producing excessive echo within the space. Fortunately, a remedy exists for this problem. READ MORE
Made with durable Cypress exterior fabric, these water and mildew-resistant panels can withstand the elements and the effects of excessive temperature changes. Available in 19 colors, this pigmented and acrylic top-coated material is easy to maintain. Each outdoor acoustic panel is two to four inches thick and custom-sized in widths up to four feet and lengths up to 20 feet, with either solid or perforated fabric.
HVAC application for all-weather acoustic panels
All-weather acoustic panels deliver great-sounding concerts and limit residential noise concerns at amphitheaters
Many outdoor venues were originally built in areas that did not have any residential or commercial buildings nearby. Over time these wide-open spaces were overtaken by real estate development. Noise complaints from nearby residents became an ongoing problem, even resulting in lawsuits.
So what is the solution? Treating the space with custom acoustic panels decreases the reverberation times, improving the venue’s sound quality. When you improve the sound quality, you can lower the volume or decibels coming out of the sound system, and the fans can hear and understand the music much better. When the decibels are lowered, the sound doesn't travel as far or with as much energy, and often the neighbors’ noise complaints go away. READ MORE
