RealTraps announces RealTraps Ceiling Tiles, a new product line comprising eight models of ceiling tile (prices range from $49.99 to $99.99) that are offered as an alternative to hanging bass traps and RFZ panels from a grid ceiling. RealTraps Ceiling Tiles are said to solve the dilemma of treating first reflection points and adding additional bass trapping to grid-based dropped ceilings.
All sizes of the new RealTraps Ceiling Tiles are available in any of RealTraps' four standard colors: black, gray, white or wheat. Tiles are available in both 2x2- and 2x4-foot sizes, and are offered in thicknesses of 1.5 inches (primarily for controlling high- and mid-frequency reflections) or 3 inches (for bass trapping).
Like RealTraps' MiniTraps and MondoTraps products, RealTraps Ceiling Tiles can be ordered in either a standard version offering a controlled amount of high- and mid-frequency reflection, or in an HF version offering greater high- and mid-frequency absorption for treating first reflection points or for controlling flutter-echo problems between floors and ceilings. The dimensions of the tiles are actually a half-inch smaller than their stated size to allow the tiles to fit properly in a standard grid ceiling. Panels may be cut as needed to fit in partial grid openings.
