Soundproofing, Insulation & Room Acoustics | UK
Acara Concepts Ltd is a leading UK distributor of high quality and natural soundproofing materials, wood fibre thermal insulation products and room acoustics panels to the UK sustainable building industry. We believe there is a growing demand for high quality, ecological and natural insulation materials as architects and home owners realise that these products work much more effectively with building physics and with our climate, rather than working against it.
Wood Fibre Insulation in UK
We only supply insulation made from natural materials such as Pavatex wood fibre insulation as we believe there are many health benefits associated with using ecological and natural materials. These include the ability of trees to sequester carbon dioxide while they are growing, so our insulation materials will significantly reduce carbon emissions both in terms of the raw materials used and the significant reduction of heat loss from buildings. Pavatex wood fibre insulation is vapour-open or breathable, meaning that water, both in vapour and liquid forms, can easily pass through the building fabric where it can evaporate to the outside. The level of moisture must be controlled within the fabric of buildings and if it is allowed to build up it will cause mould growth which leads to wet rot, dry rot and health problems for the occupants. Pavatex wood fibre thermal insulation creates healthy buildings and to learn more about the benefits of using wood fibre sustainable insulation in UK, please visit our insulation page.
Acoustic Insulation in UK
Soundproofing walls, floors and ceilings is very effective when using PhoneStar sound insulation board; an adaptable, slim and easy to use acoustic insulation product. The high performance PhoneStar soundproofing board (previously known as Phonewell) surpasses the Building Regulations for Resistance to the Passage of Sound in the UK, when used as part of simple structures. Again, produced with eco-friendly, breathable and natural materials, the soundproof board provides excellent results for both airborne sound reduction (e.g. television, music and traffic noise) and impact sound reduction (e.g. footstep noise heard overhead). Please see our detailed information on soundproofing insulation in UK on www.acaraconcepts.ie/soundproofing.
Room Acoustics in UK
Room acoustics are greatly enhanced with Lignotrend acoustic timber panels which create a quieter and more ambient environment by reducing reverberation and echo within a room. These contemporary room acoustics panels for walls and ceilings are very beneficial in large open-plan buildings such as schools, sports halls, restaurants and recording studios, as they make speech significantly clearer and greatly reduce background noise. The high quality LIGNO room acoustic panels are made with non-toxic materials – softwood timber slats with a wood fibre absorption backing – providing a sustainable and healthy ceiling or wall covering. For more information on our room acoustic panels in the UK, please visit www.acaraconcepts.ie/room-acoustics.
