apn® acoustic solutions for hotels and gastronomy

Room acoustics at star level: Our design acoustic solutions for the highest quality of stay.

The criteria catalog for hotel classification devotes a maximum of 16 out of 860 possible points to acoustic quality. In addition to the first visual impression, the acoustic sensation when entering a hotel or restaurant also contributes significantly to the evaluation of the overall atmosphere.

In probably no other industry than in the hotel industry, business success is more dependent on a pleasant atmosphere. Rest and relaxation are at the top of hotel guests' wish list, followed by the desire to escape from everyday life and experience something. Good acoustics encompass more than these wishes. It includes confidentiality at the reception desk, speech intelligibility in meeting rooms, the experience factor in the event area and intimate conversations in the restaurant. The feel-good character includes all these criteria.

The acoustic design solutions from apn® can be discreetly integrated into the respective creative room concept and ambience. Optimally, room acoustics are already taken into account in the planning of a hotel or catering establishment by means of an individual acoustic concept.

Our design acoustic elements can also be retrofitted without difficulty. Our goal for acoustics in hotels and gastronomy is: The development of aesthetically pleasing room acoustic elements, which in the best case are not recognizable as such, but make a significant contribution to the desired mood and style of the location.

Foyers / traffic routes

Foyers and traffic routes must fulfill several acoustic missions: They serve as places for relaxation, concentration or communication. Conversations, walking and rolling noises (for example, from suitcases) must be reduced by appropriate measures to protect adjacent areas.

Reception

Speech intelligibility over short distances as well as stress reduction for the people working there are top priorities in the reception area. Wall, ceiling or shielding elements serve as room acoustic solutions for this purpose.

Meeting room

In meeting rooms, the focus is on undisturbed communication. Speech intelligibility should also be given over greater distances. In the process, basic room acoustic attenuation is achieved via the ceiling and wall surfaces. Here, it is important to create a good balance between the reflective and absorptive surfaces to ensure less listening effort. This allows the reflecting surfaces to carry the sound into the room and the absorbing surfaces to prevent the direct sound from being superimposed by the diffuse sound.

Restaurant / Dining room

Poor acoustics in restaurants and dining rooms are often noticed by the increased volume, which is always encouraged by the participants in the conversation. To avoid the so-called Lombard effect, it is important to minimize background noise and optimize speech intelligibility and audibility. Therefore, for these areas, there is a requirement for room acoustics that should not be underestimated.

Event area

The event areas of a hotel serve a demanding acoustic mixed use. For performances, speech intelligibility must be taken into account, for musical performances audibility must be right, and for conversations the reduction of reflected sound must be considered. Thus, especially here, acoustics should be a top priority and the room should be equipped with acoustic solutions appropriate to its use.

apn® product lines for hotels & gastronomy

Various factors influence the acoustics in a room. What is the geometric structure of the room? What building materials were used? What is the room used for? What is the underlying spatial concept? All these factors must be thoroughly analyzed in order to offer an acoustic solution that is perfectly tailored to the room in question, like a tailor-made suit. For this reason, we have developed product lines that are specifically designed to meet the requirements of hotels and restaurants.

The effect of light and lighting on the human body is often still underestimated. Light is essential for many physiological and psychological processes. It can promote concentration and lift our mood beyond the mere lighting function. Light and acoustics have a significant influence on us in our everyday lives and at work. When these two factors work together optimally, we can have a positive influence on the well-being, motivation and work performance of the people in this environment.
