Ecophon has launched a new vertical sound absorber designed to reduce echoes, enhance speech clarity and improve acoustic performance.
The Akusto One is an independent sound absorber ideal for creating spaces where both exceptional acoustics and aesthetics are required.
Designed for flexible placement, the easy-to-install absorbers are available in circular, rectangular and square-shaped panels of various sizes. All of the panels are 40mm in depth and are complemented with white or grey painted edges.
The Akusto One absorbers can be produced in either a smooth, easy to cleaned surface that focuses on colours inspired by nature – or a fabric textured finish that boasts a colour, on-trend palette for expressive wall or screen solutions.
For more complex applications such as sports facilities, impact resistant wall panels and trims are available in the Akusto Wall range.
The sound absorbers are manufactured from 3rd generation high-density glass wool, with no added formaldehyde and high recycled content to meet the strictest indoor climate standards.
The wool also meets fire safety demands and has been tested and classified as non-combustible according to EN ISO 1182.
The lightweight, frameless panels are easy-to-install using Ecophon’s Connect One accessories to ensure the panels are mounted perfectly.
There are a range of initiatives that are encouraging manufacturers and specifiers to think about how they work and the products they use – one manufacturer championing these is Danish wood wool panel manufacturer Troldtekt.Posted in Articles, Building Industry News, Building Products & Structures, Building Regulations & Accreditations, Building Systems, Research & Materials Testing, Sustainability & Energy Efficiency, Timber Buildings and Timber Products, Walls, Wooden products
