    In an office, proper room acoustics is a keyfactor to work performance and employeewell-being. In a classroom, acoustically impaired settings lead to decreased attentionand reduced cognitive ability. In a restaurantor auditorium, acoustically uncomfortablespaces can spoil the best occasion.

    It is difficult to imagine any well-designed interior space used for communication andsocial interaction that does not take acousticperformance into account.

    The Unika Vaev Acoustical Collection providesmultiple functional and aesthetical acousticalceiling and wall treatment solutions to effectsound absorption and sound diffusion in awide range of interior spaces. Our purpose is to minimize noise distraction while main-taining the benefits that human interactionbrings to work and social environments.

    Acoustic Terms & Definitions

    Absorption: The conversion of sound energyto heat energy. It varies with the frequencyand angle of incidence of the sound thatstrikes acoustic material. A soft room is aspace with highly absorbent surfaces whereasa hard room has surfaces of low absorbentvalue and are therefore highly reflective andreverberant.

    Air-borne sound: Sound that travels throughair rather than through structure.

    Air Gap: For effective absorption of sound en-ergy, the sound wave should pass through theabsorbent material during its maximum ve-locity (quarter-wavelength). The speed ofsound is zero when it meets a rigid barriersuch as the backing wall of a sound absorb-ing material. Increasing the thickness of thesound absorber or providing an air gap be-tween the absorber and wall will improve ab-sorption.

    Broadband sound: A spectrum of sound con-sisting of a large number of frequencies, noneof which is dominant.

    Critical distance: The distance from a soundsource at which the energy of direct soundand reverberant sound are equal.

    Decibel (dB): The measurement term used todefine sound intensity. A 10 times increase insound intensity is defined as a Bel (namedafter Alexander Graham Bell); 4 Bels repre-sent a 10,000 times increase in sound inten-sity. A decibel is 1/10th a Bel; 40 dB equal 4Bels. A 1dB change in sound intensity is justnoticeable; most humans can distinguish a3dB change and consider a 10dB change astwice or half loud.

    Diffraction: The change in direction of soundresulting from a discontinuity of a boundary(say, an open door).

    Diffusion: A means to distribute sound en-ergy in equally probable directions.

    Echo: A return of sound that is perceived as adiscrete sound.

    Flanking transmission: The transmission ofsound by an unintended path.

    Frequency: The number of back and forth vi-brations of air molecules (cycles) that occurin a second; expressed as Hertz (Hz). Some-times known as pitch.

    Hearing: The ability of the human ear totranslate changes from ambient atmosphericpressure caused by sound energy into a sig-nal recognizable by the brain. Sensitivity tosound depends upon its frequency and en-ergy. The audible range of frequency for hu-mans is 20Hz to 20,000Hz, provided that atleast 0 dB of sound intensity (the thresholdof hearing) is present.

    In phase: Sound waves that reach their peakcompressions (and rarefactions) at the sametime.

    Insulation: The ability of material to preventsound from reaching a location either by re-flection back to the sound source or byacoustic resistance.

    Inverse-square law: Sound intensity (soundenergy per unit of area) varies inversely withthe square of the distance from its source.Sound intensity decreases 6 dB for each dou-bling of the distance from its source.

    Noise: Unwanted sound having no utilitywhich may be airborne or structure-borne.Like a pollutant, noise needs to be limitedand controlled to diminish its negative physi-ological, psychological, behavioral and cogni-tive affects.

    Noise reduction coefficient (NRC): The arith-metical average, expressed as a decimal tothe nearest .05, of the sound absorption coef-ficients at 250Hz, 500Hz, 1000Hz, and2000Hz.

    Octave: A doubling or halving of frequency.20Hz-40Hz is considered the bottom octavein a series of even-order harmonics that ex-tend without limit beyond the audible range.

    Reflection: Sound and light are reflected offsmooth surfaces in a similar manner theangle of incidence equals the angle of reflec-tion.

    Refraction: The bending of sound waves trav-elling through media that conduct sound atvarying speed.

    Resonant frequency: Any object will vibrate ata particular sound frequency, its natural reso-nant frequency, when disturbed by physicalforce or by sound having frequency equal toits resonant frequency.

    Reverberation: The lingering of sound in anenclosed space after the original soundsource has stopped. A room with much re-verb is said to be live; one without reverb issaid to be dead.

    Reverberation time (RT60): The time, in sec-onds, that reverberant sound energy in aspace diminishes by 60dB.

    Sabin: The measurement unit, in inch-pounds, of sound absorption. One squarefoot of acoustic material having a sound absorption coefficient of 1 has a Sabin value of 1.

    Sabine, Wallace C.: The father of modernacoustics and the developer of the Sabine reverberation equation; RT60 = .049 sec./ft. xVolume/Absorption Surface

    Sound: A vibrational disturbance comprisedof alternating compressions and rarefactionsof air molecules. The compressions push airtogether and thereby cause higher-than-nor-mal atmospheric pressure, whereas rarefac-tions spread air molecules further apartthereby causing lower-than-normal atmos-pheric pressure. Total sound energy is thepotential energy from ambient air pressureand the kinetic energy of moving air mole-cules.

    Sound absorption coefficient (alpha): Theamount, expressed as a decimal value be-tween 0 and 1 to the nearest .05, of sound en-ergy that is absorbed, or otherwise notreflected, by an acoustic material at a speci-fied frequency.

    Sound masking: The process by which the au-dibility of one sound is diminished by the in-troduction of another sound. White noiseuses equal sound energy at all frequenciesand thereby favors higher frequency spectra.Pink noise balances sound energy over a se-ries of octaves and sounds less harsh.

    Sound transmission class (STC): A rating sys-tem that provides an estimate of the insula-tion ability of a partition.

    Structure-borne noise: The generation of un-wanted radiated sound caused by vibrationalforces in solid materials.

    Wavelength: The distance a sound wave trav-els from compression to the next compres-sion. The wavelength (or period) of sound atany frequency can be computed by dividingthe speed of sound (1087 ft./sec.) by its fre-quency. At 20Hz, the wavelength of sound is56 feet long. These long sound waves givelow frequency sound (bass) its penetratingability.
