Restaurant Soundproofing

Guest: “These warehouse-style ceilings look trendy but they sure don’t do anything for the noise!”

Guest: “I have to shout for someone to hear me across the table.”

Guest: “This is the worst table. I can hear banging and loud conversations from the kitchen!”

Employee: “During the dinner rush I have to cup my ear to hear my tables’ orders.”

Employee: “Even after I leave work, there’s still a ringing in my ear.”

If this sounds familiar, you need a restaurant soundproofing solution…fast!

Time and time again, we receive calls from restaurant owners referencing complaints like these. It’s only after they install our restaurant soundproofing materials do they realize the real impact poor sound quality had on their business.

Did you know noise is the second most common complaint made by restaurant goers?* Right after service, sound quality is what your customers use to determine if they’ll be back or will recommend you to their friends.

You’ve invested in a great menu, friendly servers, and a beautiful décor. All of it will be wasted if patrons avoid your business because your restaurant is too noisy to enjoy.

Noise levels in restaurants without proper restaurant soundproofing materials averaged between that of city traffic (85 decibels) and power saws (109 decibels). Definitely not appetizing.

During the dinner rush, it can be even worse. Some restaurants, particularly those with bars, registered sound levels as high as 10 decibels over the human tolerance level.

Noise levels become a problem when customers begin competing over each other to be heard. Your restaurant can no longer provide a private, intimate dining experience. And you lose business.

You can’t blame the patrons. The physical layout of your restaurant and how sound travels through your space is to blame. The kitchen is an especially noisy place, and tables sitting near the kitchen or food-serving lanes can be the worst for your guests.

Noise issues can be the make-you-or-break-you of your restaurant.

Several cities have begun rating restaurants not just on food and service quality, but the noise volume as well. Good sound quality is essential to a healthy restaurant business.

Restaurant Sound Absorption Products soak up sound. They absorb sound waves and prevent them from bouncing back off the walls.

Most restaurants have echo problems. Sound bounces off walls, ceilings and floors. This makes unwanted background noise and muffles voices. Sound absorption products help to make individual voices clear. By reducing the sound that is echoed off the walls, there is less background noise. And diners are able to hear the other people at their table.

Restaurant Soundproofing Products trap the sound. They contain the sound in one location, making it impossible for the sound to move from one space to another.

Kitchens need restaurant soundproofing materials to stop their noise from entering the dining room. Bars need restaurant soundproofing materials to trap the noise and not let it enter other areas of the restaurant. Overall, restaurant soundproofing materials keep the noise contained in the space it should be.

Often, restaurant soundproofing problems need both types of products. Especially if your business is in a residential part of town or you host live bands and large crowds. The soundproofing materials keep the sound inside the space you want. And the sound absorption products on the interior walls improve sound quality and performance.
