Standing Note Sound Absorption Partition

Visually and physically dividing up the space of an office or workplace, Standing Note™ is a free-standing partition that offers superb absorptive qualities improving the sound quality of a space, as well as blocking the ambient sound of an open plan office. Standing Note™ free standing acoustic panel can be easily moved around a space to create new dynamic working environments, these spaces offer a superior soundscape thus improving speech intelligibility. These acoustic partitions come in a range of different colours with the option of laminating two alternative shades together to create a visually appealing aesthetic, there are also other customisable options available such as having logos or patterns either waterjet cut or grooved into the Note™ material.

Inspiration

If you find yourself amid a creative block, or only just wanting to spark a little inspiration for your interior design project - look no further than our select case studies to give you a taste 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.

We offer a bespoke product tailoring for our Standing Note™ with our in-house designer to help cater to your requirements


Have your own idea?

If you are an interior designer working closely on intricate and expressive designs, or you are an individual bursting with beautiful ideas for your new environment, we can help those ideas or basic sketches, mental or visual - come to life!

Our in-house design team can help you every step of the way by bringing them to the physical world as we look at how each idea is best structured and how it will fit together,

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


Is it suitable for my space?

Your space could be one that adopts the full range of a wall to wall space to create a particular feeling of openness, it could be a gymnasium of significant size that finds weights being dropped are reverberated through an entire area. Or it could be a classroom to where the pupils or students are pressed to hear anything clearly and thus losing attention, concentration and missing relevant information. In any of these scenarios, our Standing Note™ can be used to create free-standing partitions without the creation of a wall.

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

Each Standing Note™ is precision cut to provide a stunning level of consistency and ease of fitting, it is a flat packed free-standing acoustic panel with instructions for assembly.

Is there a specific level of sound absorption we need for our space, there is a lot of reverberation and echo that needs to be solved?

Solutions for reverberation are treated on a room to room basis, there is no set amount required for a certain size, or for specific shapes for there are multiple structural properties that can shape the soundscape. The volume of the room by size is a significant factor, but there is also the geometry of the room and how it creates different reflections, and there is the material make-up of the space, whether it is breeze block walls or full glass partitions - each reacts to sound differently. It is easy to recognise when reverberation is an issue for anyone struggling to communicate will make it evident even if not direct, hard reflective spaces like sports halls are an excellent example of where excessive reverb is problematic - mainly when it is used for assemblies of pupils or used as lecture and event talks. In short, 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

First we aim to create an estimated acoustic modelling of the room or look to carry out an Acoustic Test, we then we look at required levels alongside your budget in mind for introducing Suspended Note™ to your space and discussing visual requirements to how you would like each Note™ to appear in terms of colour scheme and their arrangement.


Can Suspended Note™ be used to block airborne and impact noise issues between rooms?

Suspended Note™ is for the reduction of reverberation and not for sound transmission, the difference is whether the noise is created and heard as problematic internally - reverb, or from another room to where it travels through walls, floors or ceilings, sound transmission. Reverb requires sound absorption like our Suspended Note™ or the rest featured in our Note™, and sound transmission needs sound proofing like those featured in our MuteRange. For effective sound control across almost any environment is a combination of both of these to assure the best acoustic quality possible across spaces and internally.


Is Suspended Note™ environmentally friendly and safe to install?

Suspended Note™ 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 Suspended Note™ appropriate for installation in a cooking environment?

We talk a lot of workspaces focusing on office environments creating an open-plan arrangement - but the culinary space is too, exposed ceilings, minimal internal designs with hard finished surfaces and with an open style kitchen area which creates a visually stunning environment that aims to encourage interaction and a display of theatre to the cooking process. But this comes with the noise that the kitchen creates and if this often loud environment itis reverberated around the dining area this would lead to intolerance of interaction between customers potentially damaging the experience. Suspended Note™ works as a beautifully sophisticated and sleek design that works well against restaurant and café installations, our only recommendation to start is to use darker colour schemes in areas where vapour and smoke are expected to avoid any staining appearing over time.


Are there any instructions provided with Suspended Note™ for a successful install?

Suspended Note™ is relatively straightforward to install as there is no assembly required, suspension wires are provided in their recommended quantity with each size of panel fitted.


Can I create my own design with Suspended Note™?

Multiple shapes can be cut out of our Suspended Note™, so whether you want Pentagons, Heptagons or Dodecahedrons - we can cut them as part of the customisation process, they can all be done in a range of colours in a single space or just a unique colour scheme throughout - it is your choice!
