Firstly, our client wanted to dampen the acoustics in their Meeting / Conference Room. The hard, reflective surfaces, certainly made the room noisy for group meeting applications. This was certainly achieved “in style” by providing a modest quantity of easy-to-install Paintable Acoustic Panels.
These innovative paintable acoustic panels have a textured latex surface that is porous and breathable. They come in basic white, subsequently allowing them to be painted to compliment existing décor. Or in our client’s case, to showcase the talent of well-known local artist, Don Waters. Most Importantly, painting the panels using a thin layer of paint does not affect acoustic performance.
Panels are made of high performance 6lb glass wool and also have a class A/1 Fire Rating for safe use in any venue. They are fully encapsulated by woven fibreglass mesh and also feature resin hardened edges to create an appealing look. A variety of sizes are available, certainly making them perfect for all venues. This includes houses of worship, home theatres, schools, theatre venues, conference rooms, restaurants, recording studios, also board rooms and more.
Furthermore, the installation system is extremely simple utilising small metal brackets that embed in the rear of the panel. Damage to the underlying building surface is truly minimal, also making it easy to change panel positioning. We would suggest starting with a modest quantity, adding more panels over time until the desired level of acoustic dampening is achieved. It’s surprising what a difference a small amount of panels can also make. A very worthwhile investment.
