Acoustical control is a critical factor in virtually every type of environment therefore selection of the appropriate operable partition is critical. Its important when choosing an operable wall system to not only consider the space/configuration of your application and how the wall operates, but to also examine the walls acoustical performance. The right wall system, in conjunction with complementing architectural elements, can help produce excellent acoustical control. When selecting a wall system several questions need to be asked relative to the room-to-room noise reduction. Also to be addressed is the need for the operable partition to provide a sound absorbing surface in the rooms formed by the partitions. What degree of acoustical control will you need? What does it take to attain it? Which wall system is better for your needs?
