Acoustic partition systems are a relatively new technology that is slowly but surely becoming more popular. We’ve been told all our lives that acoustic panels are ugly and need to be replaced every few years, but with acoustic partitions the opposite is true. By placing acoustic panels in strategic locations throughout your home they will hide all of the ugly details and allow you to enjoy the great architecture of your modern home.
There are a few different types of acoustic partition systems available. You can choose from a full insulated or semi-insulated partition system. Many people like the fact that they are fully insulated, but if you’re looking for a little bit more warmth you might want to look into the semi-insulated type. They tend to not insulate well enough to be completely comfortable, but they do help to keep it a little warmer in the summer and a little cooler in the winter.
The next big difference between the two types of acoustic partitions is the insulation that is used in the construction of the panels. Full insulated acoustic partitions are insulated using fiberglass or a similar material. These types of partitions are quite expensive and difficult to install because they have to be installed over several years.
A semi-insulated acoustic partition is much cheaper and easier to install. A semi-insulated acoustic partition will use a combination of materials like crushed stone and fiberglass. Both materials can be installed on the same premises, to provide the same level of insulation. The difference between the two is that semi-insulated acoustic partitions provide a great level of insulation, but at a lower price.
You’ll also find acoustic partitions available that don’t use any type of insulation at all. These types of acoustic partitions are very useful, but because of their lack of insulation they won’t be as effective as a full insulated acoustic partition. For example they will allow a much higher sound level than a fullinsulated acoustic partition would.
In order to keep your existing sound control intact and your new acoustic partition from being able to filter out the sound of your music, you’ll have to install some sort of full insulation. The best way to accomplish this is to install a half insulation to a full insulation. You should have no trouble installing either of these acoustic partitions.
As far as sound control goes, the two types of acoustic partitions are very similar. The only real difference between the two is that with the semi-insulated acoustic partition you can increase the size of the panels and so increase the level of insulation. However, with the full insulated acoustic partition you will be limited to the number of panels that you can afford.
Regardless, of which type of acoustic partition you choose, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the beautiful architecture of your modern home without having to worry about the details of your acoustic partitions or about how loud your music is going to be. When you’re ready to move into your new home you’ll be able to hear it all perfectly and not miss a single note.
