Primacoustic (a division of Radial Engineering) is now offering a comprehensive room acoustics analysis service that can be accessed through the company’s website. The new free room acoustics calculator walks the user through the process of entering the required measurements and information. Once completed, the service provides a room analysis along with suggested materials and estimated budget for the installation.
This free service invites the user to fill out a series of questions that will be used to determine the acoustic issues with the space. Questions cover: the purpose of the room, the size of the room, wall surface measurements, and existing floor and ceiling materials. A description of the way in which the room will be used, as well as an explanation of the acoustical issues that need to be resolved in the space also form part of the information required for the analysis. Once filled out, the form is sent to an acoustic specialist who will engage with the user to review requirements and then provide a room analysis along with suggested materials and estimated budget for the installation.
Primacoustic Market Development Manager Steve Dickson explains: “Most people realize that they have a problem in their room, but do not know how to identify it or come up with a solution. For instance, they may have a restaurant that is so noisy patrons are unable to converse during a meal. Another example could be a boardroom with a video conferencing setup where the echo in the room is so pronounced, that you cannot clearly understand the orator at the receive end of the transmission. By enabling the user to go on line, prompting them for the required information along the way, we can quickly identify the problem and come up with a suggested fix. So far, the response has been amazing! We have been receiving multiple requests daily from the United States, Canada, Europe and far-off places such as India!”
“To use this service, one simply visits the Primacoustic website and clicks the ‘Get A Quote’ button at the top of the page. The information input steps only take a few minutes to complete. Primacoustic is proud to offer this service as we know the difference proper room acoustic treatment can make and recognize most folks expect the process to be complicated. We’ve removed that barrier to getting the best sounding room possible. We are confident that the process is clear and easy to undertake, and that users will be pleasantly surprised to learn their solution is likely much more affordable than imagined.”
