Absorbers and diffusers are two of the main design tools for altering the acoustic conditions of a room. In small rooms it is often preferable to control interfering reflections and provide an ambient sound field using diffusion instead of absorption. Diffusion is the re-radiation of an incident sound wave over a wide area.
Using sound diffusion as a room acoustic treatment can improve the speech intelligibility and improve the overall listening environment within the room,
without adding excessive amounts of sound absorption materials.
Based on our experience in acoustic studies since 1978 and in collaboration with a European team of engineers and scientists, we have created a new acoustic diffuser named OCEANOS.
These acoustic diffusers help in conserving sound energy, by spreading it around the room and creating a better acoustic environment.
OCEANOS is a modern innovative two-dimensional, quadratic acoustic diffuser. Its curved contoured surface resembles the wavy surface of a calm ocean.
The aperiodic modulation of asymmetric base shape, offers a more uniform sound diffusion.
Its unique artistic form has been developed using QRD array calculation in combination with graphical algorithm editor computational software. Hence, a structural optimization of its complex geometry has been achieved.
At the same time, by using ray tracing simulation software, we have optimized the uniform acoustic diffusion and diffraction on its surface.
OCEANOS is a thermoformed light weight panel, made of a thermoplastic polymer known as Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and can also be produced with fire retardant characteristics according to UN/ECE R 118.
OCEANOS can also be made of translucent light diffusing opal acrylic sheet, in order to function as both diffuser and lighting system.
On its basic version, OCEANOS diffuser due to its membrane type construction can absorb low frequency sound energy.
In case low frequency sound absorption is not desirable, OCEANOS diffuser can be produced with an internal heavy weight overlay, without alteration of its external surface.
Basic version includes ceiling tiles diffuser, for easy installation in standard T-bar runner profiles 24/38 ceiling grids.
Minimum gap of 40cm over the false ceiling is required.
Diffusion panels can be installed in any route direction thanks to their identical form sides.
The 90 degree rotation is recommended for better sound diffusion.
OCEANOS panels can be also installed on the wall, with four screws and plastic anchors.
Another option is using our easy-to-install non-visible hanging device behind the panels.
