How do diffusers work?
The surface layer in the room’s walls, floor and ceiling highly affect how we perceive sounds. Hard surfaces create a sound image which may be perceived as disturbing to the human ear.
A sound wave bounces off hard surfaces in the same way light is reflected in a mirror. On the way from "transmitter" to "receiver", the wave is reflected with the same incoming and outgoing angle, which indirectly gives rise to a delay and an experience that the sound image becomes messy.
The sound image can be improved by absorbers in surrounding walls, ceilings and floors. An alternative method is to, with help from diffusers, break the sound waves and spread them in different directions.
The pyramids improve both design and sound environment
Our modern Pangaia Pyramid Diffusers have been well received by both architects and sound managers in the public environment.
Correctly positioned, they contribute to an effective diffusion of the sound waves and overall better acoustics in the premises.
Attractive shape, wide range of colours and great opportunities of a varied mounting pattern also make Pyramid Diffusers an exciting addition to the building’s architecture.
