More Information

Beat 1

Add an extra Beat to your step by including our absorptive baffle range, one that is available in three in-house stocked designs: Waved, Straight and Grooved – each modern, practical and helps to create an appealing visual aesthetic to your environment while treating problematic soundscapes that excessive reverberation creates. Its suspension improves the available surface area to reduce the reflection of soundwaves in both large, open spaces and for fine-tuning the acoustics in small rooms that places its acoustic performance of Noise Reduction Coefficient category of Class A.

  • Styles Available: Straight, Curved and Grooved
  • Suspended from the ceiling

  • A durable structure providing long-lasting stability

We want to inspire you with our case studies – these show our sound absorption in lots of different designs, colour schemes and layouts – there will be something you like, something you don’t like – or the perfect design but all you want is a different colour!

Have your own idea?

You have your own idea, but you don’t quite know how to put it together? Well, we want to hear it and help bring it to life for you – our in-house design team can help to look at the structuring and how it is put together, to work with you in how it will be placed in a particular space showing you visualisations of the product and its placement. We then send it off to our precision cutting team to be cut and finally sent to you or our installation team to be crafted and installed.

We offer a bespoke product tailoring for our Beat Baffle Range with our in-house designer to help cater to your requirements

Is it suitable for my space?

3D Note™ Beat is suitable for a vast range of environments, whether you are looking to specify our baffles in swimming pools, small cafés with only a ceiling space available or to improve the acoustics in a large workspace environment – Beat is applicable for them all and more. The only recommendation we do have is selecting the right colour for settings where there is cooking, steam or smoke – a brilliant white shade may not fair well over time.

  • Offices and Workplace
  • Environments
  • Home
  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Nightclubs
  • Cafés
  • Retail

Each Beat is precision cut to provide visual consistency and ease of fitting, and is flat packed with suspension wires and instructions for assembly if you fancy yourself a DIY enthusiast or not we have an installation team happy to help put these in place for you!

There are no two rooms alike for each space will have a different volumetric size, a different geometry and will have different surfaces of both hard and soft finishes – each of these shape the soundscape. You will also want to have your proposed activities for given space or spaces and what estimated level of participants you could expect for both of these are essential for knowing what level of reverberation found in each will have an effect on them. For instance, if you plan to hold teleconference calls in a glass partition room with hard floors, you will often find that the sound reverberates to levels found to be problematic and disruptive – you don’t want to ask a potentially vital client to keep repeating themselves. There is no immediate answer to these particular questions without knowing the following:

The room size.

Geometry, for instance, pitched roof with an octagon shape would have a completely different trajectory of sound than a simple rectangle room with a flat roof.

What each surface has as a building material, for instance, a polished wooden floor with exposed breezeblock walls and a wood panel ceiling.

We would then look at the events/activities you are wanting to conduct in here and look at the best available options to you by breaking them down into various tiers. If required we will also factor in budgeting, and what performance you are likely to expect with each of them, we then look at your visual requirements in how you would like each Note™ to be arranged.

Beat would not yield any acoustic performance advantages for the reduction of airborne and impact noise, the reason for this is that sound transmission, which is sound propagating through partitions – walls, floors and ceilings, requires high mass materials such as our MuteClip or MuteBoard Systems to reduce both of those noise properties. Our 3D Note™ Beat is a very lightweight and open, fibrous material – it is not intended for coverage of a whole surface, and this is because it’s finned design is helping to capture reflected sound waves between the exposed fins for the reduction of reverberation.

3D Note™ Beat is made of 100% Polyester Fibres which makes it safe for almost any internal applications for there are not exposed irritants or loose fibres. Of this 65% comes from Post Consumer Recycled Content with 35% from Pre Consumer Recycled PET fibres.

Fire Rating is measured under EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009: B – s1, d0.

Note™ is perfect for the use in restaurants and cafés that contain problematic levels of reverb, to where we have used this range in our project The Man Behind The Curtain with great success. Areas with significant vapour or smoke where ventilation may not be sufficient – we would advise using darker colour schemes in those areas to prevent staining.
Instructions are provided with every supply of 3D Note™ Beat for them to be installed successfully, fixings are also provided for a robust fitting.
3D Note™ Beat is completely customisable beyond its stock options, we can take any idea you have a look to solve any practical difficulties if there are any, help to visualise it on your existing and proposed space – and finally give guidance to its fitting.
