My university built a classroom in a basement and the acoustics are terrible. The room is ~30′ wide x 30′ long x 10′ high. The floor is tile, the walls are sheetrock and the ceiling is a drop ceiling. The room is just for presentations with minimal if any real music. Does this room need absorbers and diffusers or just absorbers? If so, which ones, how many and how big?
T, If the drop ceiling can accept ceiling tile at 24″ x 24″ you can use our ceiling tile/foam product. You will need to cover the entire ceiling. Here is link: https://www.acousticfields.com…..foam-tile/ Give me a total unit count and a ship to address and I will get you a cost. Send to email@example.com
Thanks, the grid is 24″ x 24″. Just a dumb question. Is there a problem with mounting the tiles upside down. Although if you glue the foam to the white side this will not work. The gray foam will cause a reduction in room lighting. Could we purchase sheets of foam and simply install it above the existing ceiling tiles ourselves. We’ll need about 150 tiles, or 600 sq. ft. We could purchase six of the 37″ x 54″ x 2″ sheets of four, and cut each sheet into six pieces for a total of 144 pieces. This would cost ~$4200 plus shipping.
T, The grey foam does not reduce lighting. We have installed this technique in many office and classrooms. You can purchase our full sheets which are 55″ x 75″ and cut to fit. Each full sheet is 300.00 USD plus shipping.
