A Study of Acoustics

ACOUSTICS MATTER

INSIGHT

When an area has poor acoustics, lingering reflections of 'unwanted sound' can mask and distort the direct 'wanted sound'.

When a room or space displays poor acoustics, it is often difficult to hear clearly. Mixed with music, it can contribute to an uncomfortable environment. We have all experienced straining to hear at an event or struggling to hear general conversation in a restaurant or gathering when the person is only inches away.

The acoustic properties or ‘reverberation time’ of a room or space can be measured; it is a science. Readings give very accurate data which help make decisions about what materials might be used to lead to a more comfortable acoustic atmosphere.

In the case of new build properties, a model can be generated using architectural plans. The results from this show accurately how the space will behave acoustically and whether there might be problems. Informed decisions can then be made at the planning stage to introduce acoustic treatments that would improve the overall reverberation times.

Acoustic issues also include noise containment. Retro fit solutions are often designed and installed to overcome existing and inherited acoustic problems.

Lamont can specify and supply noise reduction materials to create a barrier to prevent unwanted sound.

We are all affected by good and bad acoustics in our everyday lives. A positive, comfortable atmosphere is better than a stressed, edgy one.

Acoustics matter.

After a long career in audio visual, I am passionate about acoustics. I am on a mission to spread the importance of good quality sound and better acoustics in our home, hospitality and work environments.

CASE STUDY #08

Wilton Crescent

With door handles alone running into several thousand pounds, this was a project where the word compromise simply didn’t apply.

MICHELIN STARRED MUSIC

CASE STUDY #02

The Yorke Arms

Knowing how Lamont would approach this project was key to selecting them as an AV partner. We could absolutely trust them to fit in with our design parameters. The end result is invisible; totally in keeping with our exceptional standards..
