Sound Absorption through End Grain

Initial research by Coed Cymru through the RDP into the potential of the end-grain of Welsh timber to absorb sound across the frequency ranges discovered that there was at least three species that performed well. Following on from this discovery, Cwm a Mynydd will develop this further to optimise how the end-grain of timber can absorb sound and working in partnership with local company’s to develop the findings into a viable product that can work in spaces suffering with poor acoustics and look for other applications.

This project will make best use of the current local timber supply chains that have been established through the Wood Lab Pren project and look to attract new companies in the region who could see potential for this in their business.
