In large public areas, whether for shopping, social gathering or other activities, the noise created by people’s activity often reaches high levels over a long period of time. In these environments there is a need for more quiet areas where people can rest and recover.
Shopping centres, arrival/departure halls and other public areas normally include cafés and restaurants. By using free-hanging units, these spaces for recovery can be made acoustically comfortable and calm, giving people a chance to rest their ears as well as their legs. Many shops use indoor environment parameters to attract and retain customers; well- designed free-hanging units can make the environment attractive for the customer’s eye as well as his ear.
Social gatherings are, by definition, communicative occasions. Thus it is natural that acoustics are a vital element in any premises where such events take place. free-hanging units can then be used as a complement to a Class A ceiling in order to create areas within the premises that are clearly defined both visually and acoustically.
