About Your Noise

Cafeterias are notoriously loud. The rooms are built with hard reflective surfaces that make it easy to wipe down and keep clean, but do not lend themselves to noise control.  Concrete, brick, tile, glass, metal, and drywall combine to absorb on average less than 5% of the echoes in the room. As sound waves continue to reflect off these surfaces, the decibel levels in the room begin to spike. The people seated in the space then begin to raise their voices up and over the level of this background noise, which generates the noise you are currently experiencing.

Your Soundproofing Solution

To resolve your noise issues, the goal is to lower the level of ambient echo in your Cafeteria. A series of sound panels for walls can be wall or ceiling mounted inside the room that will combine to capture and convert the unwanted sound wave reflections. What remains after soundproofing a cafeteria is greater clarity to original sound and a more comfortable dining experience. As we tell our clients, we don’t make people less loud, we make the room less loud.

Featured Sound Panel Option

The most popular sound panel option designed for soundproofing a cafeteria is our cloth wrapped acoustic Fabric Panels.   These panels will combine to absorb the echoes in your cafeteria, collapsing your levels of background noise, and restoring the room to premium sound quality.   The panels are available in 60 color options, and can be flush mounted to perimeter walls or ceilings inside your room.   The key to the success of the treatment lies in our Room Analysis.  It is there that will will gather your room’s dimensions, and define the square footage totals you should be targeting for your project.

Related Product Options

We could upgrade the Fabric Panel and make it tackable for kids to tack seasonal projects up to the perimeter walls in the room. These are called FabricTack Panels.   We could also upgrade the Fabric Panel to a PicturePanel, which allows us to print school logos, graphics, artwork and photography onto the face of the panels.   For clients with exposed joist metal deck ceilings, we could also switch the product out for a set of VET Baffles.   These are sound baffles that hang vertically between the rows of joists, and combine to produce the same values back as the Fabric Panels will.   Any of these sound panel options will combine to produce the sound values you are seeking, so long as the quantities are accurate.   Use our Room Analysis tool below to determine your coverage amounts.

Why We Love The Fabric Panel

Fabric Panels are class A fire rated, decorative, durable, easy to self-install, available in 60 colors, and can be upgraded to double as bulletin boards or have graphics printed on to them. They can be placed as you wish around the room’s perimeter, wall or ceiling mounted, evenly dispersed with nice even site lines.   This is the most popular sound panel product that we sell, and have been at it for over 25 years.
