Specialist Acoustic Panels & Sound Absorption to reduce the noise, stress and improve worker efficiency

3D Note™ Phono is an acoustic hood that provides an invaluable space to take phone calls in loud and busy environments. The design of 3D Note™ Phono utilises the structural integrity of our Note™ material to create a wall mounted space, inspired by the common phone box that we are all familiar with. It offers superb sound quality to allow users to have a private discussion within a busy working environment. 3D Note™ Phono provides the users with a sense of privacy (both visually and acoustically) as well an improved soundscape in which to converse. One of the main issues with open plan offices is the lack of privacy, but it is 3D Note™ Phono that provides the much-needed sanctuary to escape.


Information

  • Noise Reduction Coefficient of 1.00 (average of 100% across all frequencies)
  • Made from 100% polyester fibres
  • A durable structure providing long-lasting stability
  • Available in 11 different colours which can be alternated within designs


Inspiration

Don’t let the creative block cloud shaping your ideas, whether you want your designs to seep into the mould unseen or break it, we have a select few of our case studies to show you just a glimpse of what is possible. Maybe there is something you like but would like to change, perhaps there is something you dislike or the perfect design, but all you want is a different colour - whatever it is, we can help you narrow your options and discuss them with you.


Have your own idea?

Whether you are an interior designer quietly pondering for the best way to bring your designs to life in a space that helps to improves both the internal acoustics and its visual aesthetics. Or would like to put together a sketch of using our 3D Note™ Phono design in your space or found something in our inspiration section above but want to put a twist on something you’ve seen - our in-house design team can help you every step of the way of bringing them to the physical world!

We will review how each idea is best structured and how it will fit together, we will then look to create visualisations of each space (both existing and new spaces alongside your architect's visualisation) to see how it will look in placement. We then send this off to our cutting team who have the most state-of-the-art precision cutting tools - and finally, we send these flat packed to your installation team, or our installation team if you’re looking for the whole package.

We offer a bespoke product tailoring for our 3D Note Range with our in-house designer to help cater to your requirements - do contact us to discuss.


Is it suitable for my space?

Any environment whether is in the workplace, a gymnasium or music venue that has high ceilings, exposed and full of hard surfaces that feature long and winding corridors carry reverberation over great distances and contain excessive levels to which creates an adverse effect on speech and listening, these are just a few examples of where 3D Note™ Phono is applicable. Whenever you find the issue of reverb affecting your workforce’s output through complaining of the noise issues, or to when your music venue cannot have the playing of drums without clashing of sounds unless you’re Avante-Garde composer - you’ll need some sound absorption. The only recommendation we do have is selecting the right internal colour schemes such as where there is cooking, steam or smoke, or a generally dirty environment - a brilliant white shade may not fair well over time.

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

Each 3D Note™ Phono is precision cut to provide a stunning level of consistency and ease of fitting, and it is flat packed with suspension wires and instructions for assembly if you fancy yourself a DIY enthusiast, or if not we have an installation team happy to help put these in place for you!

How do we calculate how much sound absorption we need in our space for the reverberation to be reduced to a suitable level?

There is no one stock solution for treating reverberation across multiple spaces - each space should be taken with all their acoustic attributes in their own rights for there are numerous room design features that can affect how sound reverberates. One physical property is the volumetric size, another is the geometry of the room, how the walls are places and whether it is rectangle, octagon - to a flat or pitched roof and the other is it’s surface materials and what else is featured in the room. Sports halls, for example, are large in comparison to say office spaces and will often be constructed of hard, reflective surfaces that reflect sound energy from one surface to another with ease - and if there is no soft furnishing, which there rarely are or no sound absorption - communicating in space like these, as you’ll know, is challenging. 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

After creating an estimated acoustic modelling of the room or carrying out an Acoustic Test, we then we look at required levels against different levels of budgeting to introduce 3D Note™ Riff to your space and then discussing visual requirements to how you would like each Note™ to look in terms of colour scheme and their arrangement.


Can I use 3D Note™ Riff to reduce airborne noise issues such a conversation between spaces?

3D Note™ Riff cannot be used for the reduction of airborne noise between spaces, what would be required here to reduce the noise of for say conversation being overheard in the workplace environment from room to room is our MuteRange materials, our MuteClip systems, for example, are usually best sought after for maintaining satisfactory levels of acoustic privacy. But, it is not unheard of and is in fact, good acoustic practice to see both soundproofing and sound absorption implemented to gain maximum sound control.


Is 3D Note™ Riff friendly for the environment?

3D Note™ Riff is made of 100% Polyester Fibres which makes it safe for almost any internal application 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.


We have a restaurant/café that requires acoustic treatment, is 3D Note™ Riff appropriate to install in a cooking environment?

3D Note™ Riff is encouraged for use to treat reverberation in restaurants and cafés - especially those that adopt a hard finished environment, exposed ceilings and open-plan style kitchen areas: we agree, the open kitchen style is beautiful - for both creating a live setting and allowing the chef staff to maintain visual interaction with their customers. But, what this does create is a loud environment which would often interfere with the communication between the customers themselves which would require a level of internal sound control to reduce the sound energy in the room.

We would only suggest that the use of darker colour schemes are used in areas where vapour and smoke are expected to avoid any staining appearing over time.


Are there any instructions provided with 3D Note™ Riff for a successful install?

Since 3D Note™ Riff is an entirely custom product, we visualise and cut out each individual piece, and each piece is fitted separately. Instructions will be provided from the visualisation and fixings recommended before the point of order.


Can I create my own design?

3D Note™ Riff is a part of our sound absorption range that is custom from the start - we let your creativity steer the course (or drive our ever helpful design team and us), as we create visualisations to see if they fit your criteria and design. We enjoy a challenge no matter how difficult it may seem.
