First Line of Acoustical Products Made from 100% Eco-Friendly Bamboo
FRANKFURT, GERMANY, MARCH 29, 2011 â€“ Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, continues its long history of environmentally conscious product innovations with the official European launch of its first line of acoustical products made from 100% Eco-Friendly bamboo, the Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series, at Musikmesse 2011 (Hall 5.1, Stand D43). The new line (which will be on display at the ICM booth â€” Auralexâ€™s German distributor), consists of the WavePrism, WaveLens, QuadraTec, Peak Pyramid Diffusor and KeyPacs, retains the longevity and acoustical qualities Auralex is known for with green and acoustical properties of natural bamboo.
â€œAs a green alternative to traditional hardwood, Auralexâ€™s new Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series is the perfect addition to any recording/listening space that requires absorption treatment,â€? says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics. â€œThrough this new line of bamboo-based products, customers now have a range of products to choose from, both acoustically and aesthetically.â€?
The Auralex WavePrism eliminates flutter echoes and other acoustical anomalies without removing acoustical energy from the space. The closed box design configuration of the product disperses sound evenly to create a more consistent listening or recording environment. The WavePrism is sized to drop into a suspended ceiling grid or can be wall mounted using mechanical fasteners.
Auralex WaveLensâ€™ open-boxed design scatters and redirects acoustical energy. The WaveLens can be beneficial in numerous applications as it can create a â€œlarge soundâ€? in a small room, as well as optimize existing absorption panels by redirecting the sound energy.
The QuadraTecâ€™s unique tiered design provides excellent scattering properties, resulting in a warm, musical character to the dispersed sound. The nested pair offers two unique diffusion tools that, when used in combination with each other, can result in a more spacious feel in any room. The lightweight design allows QuadraTec diffusors to be placed in suspended ceiling grids or attached to wall surfaces with mechanical fasteners.
Auralexâ€™s Peak Pyramid Diffusor is optimized to provide high-quality sound diffusion while also doubling as an effective bass trap when filled with absorptive material. These lightweight, sturdy pyramid-shaped diffusors are sized so that they can be easily dropped into a suspended ceiling grid or installed onto wall surfaces using mechanical fasteners.
KeyPacs are designed to be mounted to the face of absorptive panels; such as, Auralexâ€™s ProPanels or Studiofoam. These specially designed panels will tune your absorption treatment to be more effective in the low and mid range while not killing off the higher frequencies â€• yielding a room that is well balanced across the frequency range. Available in three configurations â€• 9 Hole, Bubble and StarÂ¬ â€• KeyPacs can fine tune any absorption treatment to be more effective and create a more acoustically balanced space.
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world and, when placed in the proper climate, can grow up to eight feet a day. Bamboo, which has the strength characteristics of traditional hardwoods, is actually a grass and therefore provides environmental sustainability that traditional hardwoods cannot. Itâ€™s important to note that the type of bamboo used in the production of this product is different than the bamboo that pandas and other animals use for food.
Consumers are becoming more conscious of the environment and are increasingly utilizing green building and renovation techniques. As part of this environmental shift, companies can now obtain LEED certification which is a measurement tool that can qualify construction projects for tax rebates and zoning allowances. Auralexâ€™s Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusors can be helpful in achieving LEED certification, specifically in the Materials & Resources category.
