In today’s world, many people are looking for ways to optimise the space they have in their homes. One way to do this is by using sound barrier sheets to create a designated space for different activities. These sheets can be used in any room, and they’re especially helpful in mixed-use spaces, which are becoming popular in today’s urban landscapes.
Understanding the concept of mixed-use spaces
What was once an exclusively industrial area, mixed-use spaces are now becoming increasingly popular for their unique combination of commercial and residential properties. While this offers many benefits to tenants and homeowners alike, it can also present some challenges when it comes to noise control.
Noise pollution generated from one space can easily travel to another, disrupting residents and clients. While this can be very annoying to deal with, a practical solution to this can be through the use of sound barrier sheets.
Mixed-use spaces can get various benefits from using sound barrier sheets. such as the following:
- Reduce the noise impact of machinery and equipment.
Sound barriers are a great way to ensure that your equipment isn’t too loud and can be used in any situation where you need some help with noise control. They work by muffling sound waves, so they’re perfect for covering anything from power generators to loudspeakers.
For instance, sound barrier sheets are installed in the activity areas of malls or shopping centres during events such as concerts and bazaars. These events can get noisy, especially since they are situated in enclosed spaces but are surrounded by other establishments. The noise they generate can affect other areas, such as restaurants or bookstores where people need a quiet environment in order to function effectively.
Sound barriers then contain the sounds within the area in which they are generated, and prevent them from going beyond the premises.
- Significantly reduce echo and reverb.
Two of the most discomforting attributes of soundwaves are echo and reverb. High-impact sounds such as construction drills, screeching cars, or those generated by machines are not always loud, but they can be heavy in terms of echo and reverb -and these linger in our body. Even after hearing the sound itself, we can still feel its impact for several minutes to as long as hours.
Sound barrier sheets usually cover the sources of noise pollution for a certain period of time, or until the activity in which these machines are used has already ended. Through this approach, the echo and reverb from these noises are absorbed by the sheets, thus making the overall noise less distracting to our senses.
- Create temporary partitions in common areas.
Sound barriers are used as a way of preventing noise pollution in common areas. They can be created with panels and curtains, or padding on walls and ceilings to absorb sounds from outside sources.
This works in areas wherein there are no concrete partitions for commercial establishments (kiosks, bazaars, etc.). Acting as dividers, sound barrier sheets create a temporary quiet and private space that is conducive for entertaining clients, doing business transactions, and other related tasks.
Temporary partitions are also common in offices wherein there are no compartments (collaborative setups). At times when employees need specific spaces to do their activities, sound barrier sheets can be installed to separate them from others who are doing other tasks.
