Restaurants, café, cafeterias and banquet halls.

Acoustic Challenges

  • Poor room acoustics makes dining a very noisy and stressful ordeal.
  • Speech intelligibility is particularly important for dinner meetings and interviews.
  • Hard surfaces increase echo, reverb time and noise, reducing speech intelligibility.
  • Restaurants often occupy small spaces, with limited wall area and reflective surfaces that increase echo, reverb time and noise.
  • Converted spaces such as retail spaces and industrial sites that are not originally constructed for restaurants pose particularly severe acoustic problems.
  • Rental or leased spaces have very strict noise and damage restrictions.
  • Large-scale construction and investment is not an option.
  • Allow flexibility in seating – various sized groups or individuals.
  • Provide a professional aesthetic look for your guests.
  • Install easily without damage to walls or ceilings.
