Acoustically treating a restaurant
Thinking about acoustically treating your restaurant? There are many positive benefits to treating a restaurant. One of the worst experiences diners can have is shouting across their table to be heard by the people in their party. This is caused by excess reverberations bouncing off of the walls, ceilings and floors. Installing acoustical panels will decrease excess transmission of scattered voices, music and sound waves and create a much more inviting environment for guest. and greatly enhance the acoustical properties of the restaurant. Another added benefit is increased conversational privacy. Since acoustical panels absorb sound, peoples voices won't travel as they would in an untreated room. Installing acoustical panels allows guest to hear each other more clear, decreases total volume of voices of , When it comes to eating at any high end comfortable restaurant the acoustical properties are always an important aspect to consider.

Note: Remember that you need to account for the ceiling height when determining your rooms requirements. The previous equation is for room's that have an 8ft-10ft ceilings. So for every extra 8ft increase in height, your treatment requirements double. If you have a 16ft ceiling multiply the final number by (2). If you have a 24ft ceiling multiply your final number by (3). This will ensure that your room is getting adequate coverage.
