AG offers solution to reverberation woes

  • 31 Aug 2018

AG are a company committed to pioneering top quality acoustic masonry products that meet architectural masonry specifications.

Amongst the the UK and Ireland’s most innovative suppliers of hard landscaping, building and structural precast products, AG’s Alphacrete® Acoustic is a cutting-edge sound-absorbing masonry block with outstanding room and building acoustic performance.

One of the first products of its kind, Alphacrete® Acoustic was expertly developed to offer higher levels of sound absorption than standard masonry blocks.

This means it effectively lowers airborne noises and excess reverberation. Additionally, the flutter echoes and standing waves produced by reflective parallel wall surfaces will be significantly reduced.

Alphacrete® Acoustic offers a solution to those who are tasked with dramatically improving speech intelligibility and acoustic performance in conventional constructions where reverberation causes problems.

It is also extremely strong and durable in comparison to competing acoustic panels on the market – overall, it is an excellent choice for controlling reverberation time in sports halls, church halls, leisure centres and many more examples.

As well as being incredibly durable, Alphacrete® Acoustic is non-combustible making it the obvious choice for maintaining fire and safety standards.

In addition to excellent performance, Alphacrete® Acoustic is good value financially. The blocks do not require plastering, painting or the addition of expensive sound absorbing wall panels typically required to achieve Part ‘E’ compliance with standard block or brick constructions, resulting in significant cost savings.

The block is available in two distinct finishes, Athena and Corinthian. The former is smooth and stronger in colour, whilst the latter has added texture and natural colour variances to give it more of a natural stone appearance.

Both finishes come in a market leading array of colours including optimum LRV (Light Reflectance value) shades and special detailing shapes to flexibly create projects with impressive visual impact.
