Absorption principle

Barrisol Acoustics® ceilings can be fixed with Barrisol Tradition or Barrisol Star system. For a better result, Barrisol Acoustic stretch ceiling can be used in association with an acoustic absorbent.

Explication de l'absorption du son 1 - Initial Sound

2 - Transformation of the sound into thermal energy

3 - Barrisol Acoustics®

4 - Reduced sound


Acoustic absorption reduces the intensity of the sound waves as they reflect within a room. The wave that emanates from a sound source is partially absorbed by the BARRISOL sheet thereby reducing reverberation.

Please note that this is quite different from acoustic isolation that relates to the transmission of noise from one space to another.
The BARRISOL suspended ceiling also lets a portion of the sound energy pass through it. As the sound waves continue to reverberate around the room, energy loss continues and the sound in the space is reduced.

The technology built into BARRISOL ACOUSTICS® sheeting allows it to obtain spectacular acoustic results. 

Range of products

BARRISOL Acoustical ceiling technology can be integrated into public spaces such as museums, airports, churches, restaurants or music venues. Any space where occupant comfort is important is an ideal application for BARRISOL.

To obtain the level of absorption wished according to various environments, Barrisol proposes 4 types of sheets:

For specific use, Barrisol Acoustic stretch ceiling proposes other perforated acoustic sheets.

Although the perforations of these sheets are larger than the micro-perforated sheets of the ACOUSTICS® line, they still have excellent acoustical properties. Their acoustical properties, along with their unique appearance, significantly increase the number of possible applications of these unique sheets.

When used in conjunction with a sound insulator placed behind the sheeting, BARRISOL's micro-perforated sheets provide superior acoustics and help ensure an aesthetic and functional result.

  • P10 Mediperf®
  • P20 Mezzoperf®
  • P60 Maxiperf®

All the Acoustics® sheets are available in 110 colors and 7 finishes (Lacquers, Satins, Mattes, brushed suedes, Metallic, Translucent and Recycled).
