Note™ is our lightweight and semi-rigid sound absorption panel that is the raw material to create our expansive Note™ range. Its characteristics allow it to be used to create a wide range of acoustic solutions, where design and aesthetics are vital. It is available in a wide range of colours and has solid colour throughout, Note™ also contains a minimum of 65% recycled Polyester materials.
If you assigned the task to revivify a visually bleak environment that requires its internal acoustics to be drastically improved, but you find there is a lack of inspiration - then take a look at all the possibilities in our selected case studies. Long gone are the days of having to place a white panel on the white wall with it hidden in the corner, the improved visual stimulus in a given space helps to harmonise or stand out against any colour scheme. Below are tasters of what is possible - there could be something you like but would like to alter slightly, or perhaps there is something you dislike or even 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!
Wanting to combine our Note™ designs with our other excellent options available in Note™, or want to create something new entirely from your ideas? We want to hear them and put them in to practice! 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 rendering) 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.
Note™ is suitable for a vast range of environments - and it’s wrapped options which help to hide exposure to ‘picked’ material for young children making it a brilliant choice for education environments that only have walls as available space. Other than this Note™ can be installed anywhere from large swimming pool surroundings, nightclubs that offer huge cavernous spaces and in workplace environments.
Each Note™ is precision cut to provide a stunning level of consistency, and for ease of fitting, it is flat packed as is with instructions for fitting - that is if you fancy yourself a DIY enthusiast, if not we have an installation team happy to help put these in place for you!

A straightforward explanation of reverberation is that it is the result of sound trapped in a room, and not the sound moving through a partition such as a wall, floor or ceiling. When this sound is 'trapped' without anything to absorb it, it will begin to bounce off reflective surfaces. Some examples of reflective surfaces are glass, wood, stone and even plasterboard. When a soundwave comes into contact with these surfaces, it reflects on to another surface, and then another until that sound disappears or falls below a certain sound level, one below the background noise level. It is this reflective sound energy that leads to misinterpreting or failing to hear speech in classrooms, sports halls and swimming pools, three typical examples of where reverberation is a negative effect. But, we need reverberation to help carry our voice or to carry musical performances such as in auditoriums or classical music halls, each one designed to have its own unique sound. Creating a completely absorbent environment will leave the sound very 'dry' and unnatural, and you will need to introduce further distribution of sound systems or public address systems to make up for this.
There is a 'sweet spot' for every environment, and you will need to factor in each type of event or purpose of your room so that we can together make the right decision in what levels are best suited for reverberation.
In these cavernous-like halls and in the petite critical-listening spaces, it is the introduction of soft materials that begin to introduce absorptive surfaces. It is the addition of these that turn sound energy into thermal energy when the sound wave makes contact, but don't worry, the heat generated from this is not noticeable, you will not feel the panel increasing in heat. These sound absorptive materials will often need even spacing through the open space on walls and ceilings, and careful placement of these to maximise performance as the sound 'bounces' around the room.
Reverberation is a complex issue to understand, especially if you are looking at the mathematical equations that predict the level of reverberation, or at estimations made from acoustic modelling, or even the results from acoustic testing and what they mean to you and your project. We briefly explain each of these points as just as possible, from what reverberation is and how it can affect us especially our communication and our concentration. We aim to update this as often as we can with new research and provide blogs on areas revolving around reverberation.
