TRANSFORMING RESTAURANT ACOUSTICS

Aldo’s Italian Restaurant in Bradford has undergone an acoustic transformation!

With the addition of 102 acoustic ceiling Tiles we have taken the reverberation time from 2.5 seconds to 1.1 seconds, that’s a 56% improvement*.

Aldo was keen that the Tiles were in-keeping with the look of the restaurant space so we designed six different bespoke marble-effect prints for the face of the Tiles (to our knowledge this has never been done before, anywhere in the world). He was also keen that the design scheme/layout made a statement – do you think we achieved this? Aldo does, we can’t repeat what he said when he first saw the installation!

AgileAcoustics is passionate about improving the noise levels and acoustics in the restaurant and hospitality sector as we know it can make a huge difference to customers (particularly those who are hard of hearing), staff and restaurant owners. And with programs such as Master Chef et al the UK has a real passion for food and dining out, so let’s work together and make UK restaurants the best acoustically the world over!

If you are a restaurant owner and would like your restaurant, café or hospitality space transforming we would love to hear from you and carry out a site survey. We are happy to work with small establishments but spaces such as Costa Coffee, Starbucks, Caffe Nero, Pret A Manger, Pizza Express et al would also hugely benefit from some acoustic tiles on their ceilings – next time you are in there mention the noise levels and tell them there is a great solution, made from recycled plastic bottles!

And speaking of ‘recycled’ credentials, we use fibres from recycled plastic bottles to make our acoustic tiles. At Aldo’s we used the equivalent of 660, 50cl-size recycled plastic bottles to make their 102 ceiling tiles.

Tile used – TileAcoustics 400m2 Square Diamond Tile, Reg. Design #6028645

*Predicted results provided by MZA Acoustics, see Reverb graph below. Mid-frequency reverberation time is the arithmetic average of the reverberation time in the 500Hz, 1,000Hz and 2,000Hz speech frequencies.
