Mila-wall Acoustic

Better acoustics. Better optics.

More visitors doesn't mean more noise

Especially when several groups are visiting an exhibit they are often audibly disturbing nearby visitors. The group interferes with one another other. Good thing there is now a new solution: Mila-wall Acoustic. The panels looks as appealing as Mila-wall, but dampens the reverberation in the room noticeably. This way, aesthetic and good-looking wall surfaces can provide an acoustics-enhancing function.

Proven Design. Taken one step further.

The new sound-absorbing panels from the Mila-wall series combine aesthetic wall design and demonstrated acoustic improvement. Given the slim depth of the wall, it‘s amazing how effectively Mila-wall Acoustic reduces reverberation.

Excellent!

Mila-wall Acoustic's design was recognized by the architecture magazine AIT as a trendsetter in the industry and was awarded the German Design Award by the German Design Council.

The frame of this new acoustic wall is based on the materials and construction of the Mila-wall-100 series, but optimized for maximum sound absorption.

From the outside, a structure of micro-fine holes is the only variant. How the sound is captured inside the wall is a design secret.

You have heard nothing?

Absorption

... might best be described as "swallowing" sound. Normally, wall surfaces cast sound back. With Mila-wall Acoustic, however, little or no noise is reflected back and sound that hits the surface is absorbed or "swallowed" back into the wall. How we accomplish this remains our trade secret.

Blocking

... stops sound and acts like a barrier. Just like an umbrella blocks or holds off the rain, sound is redirected in its path. This happens with use of a sound barrier, like Mila-wall Acoustic. To put it technically: the sound is interrupted and dispersed away from the inside.

Masking

... covers up what is being heard, similar to muffling a voice. Disturbing background noise is drowned out or "masked" by introducing a non-annoying, more neutral sound. Masking sounds need to be static, broadband, and provide no information. This is what we call white noise.

Impressive sound absorption

Mila-wall acoustic was developed in collaboration with the renowned Fraunhofer IBP. The picture shows a wall module during tests at the Institute, where outstanding sound dampening values were measured.

Quiet Please!

Videobox

This Videobox is built with Mila-wall Acoustic walls. Inside the Videobox, you experience superior sound quality. Yet outside the walls, you can hear almost nothing. Thanks to the sound dampening and absorption qualities of the Mila-wall Acoustic, the sound stays inside the room.

Live testing the Mila-wall Acoustic

At the Stratford Circus Arts Centre London, the International Gospel Choir London tested the reverberation of Mila-wall Acoustic, the sound-absorbing wall modules from the Mila-wall series, which were specially developed to reduce reverberation. The results were impressive.

A special exhibition at the Kulturhistorisches Museum in Rostock was equipped with Mila-wall Acoustic.

Nature experience in the museum

A special exhibition in the Cultural History Museum in Rostock was equipped with Mila-wall Acoustic. These wall modules were used to switch off the natural room reverberation in the exhibition room and to create the impression of "the wild". The exhibition organizers were enthusiastic about the room acoustics, especially because birdcalls are running in the background of the exhibition and no - for the room actually possible - reverberation is created.

Chillout with Mila-wall Acoustic

In this summary you can see the construction of a chillout room designed by MBA at the BOE International in Dortmund. The chillout room has sound-absorbing surfaces on the inside and can be realized in different sizes and the interior can be designed individually. Constructed with Mila-wall wall modules from the Acoustic series, it is the perfect retreat in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a trade fair, event or open-plan office.

Less sound. Less reverb.

The exhibition spaces of Hilm-Boeckmann-retrospective of the LWL Museum of Archaeology in Herne were the basis for an impressive demonstration of the reverberation reduction with acoustic walls from the series Mila-wall Acoustic.

Remarkable reduction of reverberation

In a simulation of the Fraunhofer IBP, normal Mila-wall modules were compared with Mila-wall Acoustic. The noise reduction is clearly identified:
