The clean, open appearance of Navy Island’s micro-perforated acoustic wood baffles give little evidence to how remarkably effective they are at absorbing sound.
Traditional wood baffles act as sound diffusers; reflecting and dispersing sound waves to reduce harsh reverberation.
Navy Island’s acoustic wood baffles are better— in addition to diffusing sound waves, they are the first wood baffles to provide substantial levels of sound absorption.
Navy Island’s acoustic wood baffles perform so well, they’re capable of more sound absorption than nearly all other types of acoustic ceiling systems—including drop ceilings.*
*To achieve maximum absorption effectiveness, additional consideration must be given to baffle spacing, span direction and room dimensions.
