For people to be as creative and effective as possible, a good sound environment is crucial. Good acoustics benefit communication as well as concentration and providing a good sound environment is one of the most rewarding investments that can be made in a building. Several different measures can be taken to improve the acoustic environment of a room, one of the most effective being the installation of a sound-absorbing ceiling. From a strictly acoustical point of view, the best solution is a suspended acoustic ceiling.

Ecophon’s range of products covers the full spectrum of acoustic applications from commodity demountable ceilings to concealed edge profiles, floating baffles and bespoke raft ceilings and wall panels.

You can be as creative as you want whilst contributing to the internal acoustics in any workspace or recreational environment.
