Executive Summary

Inkofoods, a dynamic food company with a chain of pizza places, faced an acoustic challenge in their large cafeteria space. Used for staff lunches and pizza degustation events, the space had significant echo issues due to its expansive size, high ceilings, and glossy floors. DECIBEL's engineer conducted on-site measurements, created an acoustic study, and tested reverberation times. The tailored solution involved nearly full ceiling coverage with non-standard, large-sized textile acoustic panels. Overcoming challenges posed by existing light fixtures, the installation ensured a seamless fit, significantly improving the acoustic environment for Inkofoods' bustling cafeteria.

Scope of Work

  • On-site visit and measurements by DECIBEL's engineer
  • Creation of an acoustic study and reverberation time testing
  • Design and production of non-standard, large-sized textile acoustic panels
  • Installation of panels with varying thicknesses in a chess orientation
  • Custom fitting around existing light fixtures

Challenge

The cafeteria's vast size, high ceilings, and glossy floors contributed to significant echo issues during events and staff lunches. The challenge was to create a bespoke acoustic solution that not only addressed these issues but also seamlessly integrated with the cafeteria's aesthetics. Working around existing light fixtures added an extra layer of complexity to the project.

Solution

DECIBEL's comprehensive solution involved:

  • Designing and producing non-standard, large-sized textile acoustic panels for almost full ceiling coverage
  • Utilising two thicknesses of panels in a chess orientation to effectively cover a broad frequency range
  • Collaborating with the interior designer to ensure the panels complemented the overall aesthetic
  • Custom-fitting panels around existing light fixtures, requiring meticulous installation and manual adjustments

Result

The final result was nothing short of spectacular. The custom textile panels not only addressed the echo issues but also enhanced the overall aesthetics of the cafeteria. Despite the challenges posed by the existing light fixtures, the installation achieved the desired acoustic effect. Inkofoods was thrilled with the outcome, and the improved acoustic environment allowed for the resumption of lively pizza parties and events.

This project showcases DECIBEL's expertise in creating tailored acoustic solutions for unique spaces. The successful integration of non-standard textile panels not only resolved acoustic challenges but also contributed to the overall ambience of Inkofoods' cafeteria.
