AKUPANEL SYSTEMS

TRANSFORM YOUR WALLS WITH THIS SOPHISTICATED ACOUSTIC PRODUCT

As part of our ever-growing, decorative acoustic range, we’re excited to bring you Akupanel. The Akupanel can be used to create beautiful slat walls and ceilings which adds a modern look to the room. This clever new product that imitates a traditional cedar-clad wall is available in sheet sizes of 8x2ft and in 13 different colour styles.

 

 

ACOUSTICS

 Sound is made up of waves and when sound hits a hard surface, it is still reflected back into the room, causing reverberation. The acoustic panels, however, break and absorb the sound waves when the sound hits the felt and the slats. This prevents the sound from being reflected back into the room, which ultimately eliminates reverberation.

 

The panel is sound dampening and removes reverberation within the space which improves acoustics. Akupanel’s acoustic qualities stem from the thick felt backing and natural 3D shape of the panel that reduces direct sound-bounce. These properties make Akupanel a superb sound dampening solution. Its structure allows the panel to even bend around curved walls. Primarily used in hospitality spaces, Akupanel’s warm, soft aesthetics mean they are becoming increasingly common in office and educational settings too.

 

 

MATERIALS AND MAINTENANCE

We are delighted that Akupanel can join our array of eco products boasting that the felt backing is made primarily from recycled plastic bottles. The slats are made from MDF from sustainable forests. Each slat has a wood veneer finish available in 11 styles. This product can be easily cleaned using a dust broom, a vacuum cleaner or a hard-wrung cloth.

 

SIZING

The Akupanel measures 2400 x 600 mm and consists of slats 11 mm deep and 27mm wide, with a 13mm gap between them. The slats are mounted on a base of acoustic felt. The newly developed acoustic felt is made of recycled material and is 9mm thick. The panel is 22mm thick in total, including the slats and the felt.

COMPOSITION

FELT MADE OF RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES

The acoustic felt is made from recycled plastic, whicb means that Akupanel take a waste product and tuern it into something useful and beautiful. The felt is designed to absorb the sound waves and dampen the sound.

 

THE SLATS ARE MADE FROM MDF

The core consists of a medium density fibreboard and is available in black or natural. The slats create diffusion, which essentially means that they break the sound waves and thereby dampen the sound.

 

THE SURFACE

All the wood Akupanel uses comes from sustainable forestry, which ensures that the forest can reproduce more trees than are cut down. In addition, their supplier provides good working conditions for the people working in the forest, whilst protecting and respecting the wildlife.
