Modern architecture is often characterised by materials that can lead to uncomfortable noise: glass, concrete and steel. Kvadrat Acoustics solutions let you overcome this challenge – while enhancing aesthetic quality, productivity, and wellbeing.

You get a market-leading choice of specification possibilities with Kvadrat Acoustic. In practice, this means you can specify a solution that perfectly meets the specific acoustic and visual challenges of your project.

Why acoustics matter in your space

Hearing is a crucial tool for navigating our society and environment. Sounds and hearing enable language; language enables our social and intellectual development. In the buildings we use, whether they are for work, living, music, learning or healing, the shape of spaces and the nature of materials affect how we perceive sound – and our ability to hear.

Good acoustics can improve:
- Task motivation by over 60% 1  
- Ability to focus on tasks by more than 40% 2
- Mental arithmetic performance by 20% 3  
- Performance during concentration demanding tasks with up to 50% 4

Good acoustics can reduce:
- Adrenaline levels by 30% 5  
- Stress levels by 27% 6
- Conversational distractions by more than 50% 7  
- Error rates by 10% 8
