Vicoustic R&D Lab
The Vicoustic Research Center was designed for technological development that includes training and skill enhancement in specific areas, including Acoustic Product Engineering and Surveillance Technology.
Vicoustic has dedicated considerable investigation in Building integration on an international scale, and has been extremely successful in producing high performance acoustic products that comply with demanding fire ratings, safety and environmental regulations, while maintaining competitive cost levels. As a result, Vicoustic products are fully optimized.
The R&D Center is divided into two distinct areas: the Multifunctional Room and the Lab Test Facility.
The Multifunctional Room has magnetic walls that allows us to mount and dismount any combination of products, to study performance, quality, design and aesthetics, instantaneously.
Lab Test Facility
The Lab Test Facility is an innovative chamber with exclusive features that continues to be unique in the world.
The objective was to build an adaptive volume chamber, allowing us to perform acoustic tests in various sized rooms. Thanks to a 4 ton mechanical wall, that travels on a set of rails, we can define the exact measurements of the chamber, and adjust the length of sound waves produced inside.
The wall has a custom made insulation system that is remotely controlled by a hydraulic system, completely blocking sound transmission, inside and out. It includes a cutting-edge laboratory infrastructure that converts into three hybrid states: Low Frequency Resonation Chamber, Reverberation Chamber, and an Anechoic Chamber.
Inside the hybrid test lab, we have installed four subwoofers and one B&K Omnidirectional loudspeaker that will generate specific sound waves called plane waves. By positioning the mechanical wall, it is possible to study any product sample at precise frequencies. The sound behavior is captured using B&K microphones, insuring reliable data to continue our analysis.
The technology and rigorous in-house testing are the foundation of each and every product, making Vicoustic a distinguished brand and leader in its sector.
