Hanging Baffles

Hanging Sound Baffles

Shop online for hanging baffles from Soundproof Cow. A hanging baffle is an acoustic product that suspends from the ceiling via chains to reduce echoing and reverberation within a room.

Our hanging baffles feature materials like acoustic cotton or foam that absorb sound energy. The baffle intercepts soundwaves before they reach the hard surface on the other side. The baffle’s soft, porous surface ensnares the soundwave, converting sound energy into heat and limiting the amount that bounces back toward the source.

When hanging soundproof baffles, you’ll leave a gap between the baffle and the wall or ceiling. The gap allows the baffle to absorb sound from both sides, including sound waves that reflect off the hard surface on the other side. Hanging them from the ceiling effectively shrinks the room from an acoustic perspective. Large spaces give sound waves plenty of room to bounce around, so adding baffles makes it easier to control noise distribution.

Our acoustic hanging baffles are ideal for large, open spaces. Use our wall or ceiling baffles for theaters, gymnasiums, auditoriums, offices, restaurants, industrial areas, broadcasting audio and other large indoor commercial spaces. Choose from various sizes of hanging acoustic baffles to meet your needs.

Do Acoustic Baffles Reduce Sound?

Installing baffles will reduce ambient noise in any room. You can hang acoustic baffles from the ceiling or walls in the pathway of any common noise source to reduce echoes and reverberations.

Sound enters the foam through the surface’s pores when it reaches the baffle. Much of the soundwave’s energy turns into heat and disperses throughout the baffle. As a result, the soundwave has less energy to reflect off of the baffle. Everything will sound clearer in a room with acoustic baffles because echoes and reverberations cause less interference.

Where Should Sound Baffles Be Placed?

Hang your acoustic baffles from the ceiling or on the walls. The hanging sound baffles come with chains that connect to the ceiling and hold the baffle in place. Turn the baffle so that it is parallel to the surface you’d like to address.

Baffles go in front of walls and ceilings because of their hard, flat surfaces. Ceilings and walls allow sound to reflect with ease. Placing a soft material between the noise source and the hard surface will limit the amount of noise that reaches the reflective material.

When you install your baffles, leave a gap between the baffle and the wall or ceiling. The gap will allow both sides of the acoustic baffle to go to work. Some noise will reach the surface behind the baffle, but it will reflect into the acoustic material’s back end.

How Many Acoustic Baffles Do I Need?

The number of baffles you need depends on the size of the room you’re treating. A larger room will require a greater number of baffles to achieve the results you want to see. Purchase enough hanging baffles to fill the space while leaving 18-24 inches between each one.
