Acoustics First Art Diffusor

The Transfusor Model C is a diffuser that passes light and can be used as a cover for a standard two by two foot light fixture, grid mounted, placed in front of windows or skylights, or mounted directly to a surface reducing both acoustical and visual glare. The Art Diffusor is a series of binary array diffusers designed to increase the clarity of sound while maintaining the ambient character of the room. The range of the Art Diffusor is extended over other designs by its unique angled end caps to further control specular reflections above 4kHz. The Art Diffusor is available in a variety of different materials including furniture grade woods and Class A plastics.

RPG FlutterFree-T

RPG has utilized its aperiodic modulation of a single asymmetric optimized base shape technique to produce a new optimized, asymmetric FlutterFree-T, which features a folded well configuration at the junction of two planks. The diffusion bandwidth is improved over the traditional FlutterFree that uses a number theoretic design, lowering the diffusion cutoff of the plank by more than an octave. FlutterFree- T is a handsome, furniture-grade, acoustical hardwood molding that provides flutter echo control.

Acoustic Sciences SoundPlank

Acoustic Sciences SoundPlanks are arrayed as a treble range absorption/diffusion wall grid system, typically applied to the front-side and the rear walls of large halls. SoundPlanks come with beveled edges all around and are available in a wide variety of fire rated Guilford 701 fabric colors. Units can also be ordered with back channels so they can be vented through holes into adjacent wall cavities to dramatically add bass range absorption.

Auralex Low Emission ELiTE ProPanels

Auralex introduces new Low Emission ELiTE ProPanels, fabric wrapped acoustical panels. Lower emissions promote better air quality, which has been cited by the EPA as one way to improve health and productivity in schools, homes and commercial buildings. A new method of manufacturing eliminates the use of formaldehyde and phenol from the fabrication process. The new ELiTE ProPanels maintain their acoustical properties and Class A - Fire Rating. They are manufactured using 35 percent post-consumer recycled material, and their absorptive qualities help reduce building energy demand. This redesigned product emits fewer Volatile Organic Compounds, achieving both GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD Children & School certifications.
