WAVE Design Room Divider
Sound absorbing PVC hard foam dividers
The room dividers allow a visual opening or covering of different areas, depending on their positioning and the viewer’s perspective. Purposeful lighting can be used to visually emphasize the WAVE-specific design which, as a result of the interaction of light and shadow, will assume three dimensional forms and offer fantastic optical impressions that are as changeable as the point of view from which they are perceived. Not only can the geometry of the lamellae be calibrated to serve acoustic purposes, but it can also be adjusted to achieve desired light effects or to avert unwanted incidence of light. Room dividers are meant to be objects of interior design with an advantageous influence on a room’s acoustics. Their scope of application ranges from office buildings to concert halls and other music rooms, lobbies, studios, schools and cafeterias all the way to private rooms. In addition to the tried and trusted soundabsorptive properties of our WAVE products, the room dividers effectively disperse sound and diffuse its reflection. Under normal circumstances, the room dividers will be installed within reach of persons. This makes a mechanically sturdy construction necessary. The material properties of the PVC hard foam used for this purpose meet these requirements. The scattering factor indicates to what extent sound waves are not being directly reflected back into the room, but dispersed in different directions. This results in a mixing of sounds into a blend in which especially piercing sounds like the clanging of tableware are drastically muted. If the room dividers are applied and positioned to serve these specific
purposes, the scattering, reflection and absorption of sounds can be influenced in any desired way.
