Using light-colored acoustical panels can be tricky. Getting them from production, to job site, to final installation, all while maintaining their bright clean appearance takes much care. Here are some install pics from a job one of our dealers installed for a museum in Nevada. For this job Sonora® Wall Panels, covered in White Guilford® of Maine fabric, were installed along the upper perimeter of the facility.
A helpful hint for handling or installing lighter colored acoustical panels is to have some white gloves handy for the unloading and installation process!
Acoustics First® will be back in New York for the 2018 AES/NAB show, October 17-19.
So, if you missed last year’s show, here’s your chance to stop by the Javits Center (Booth 553) and say hi to Cameron & Jim!
We recently received these wonderful installation pics from our friends at Big3 Studios in Florida. They redid the back wall in one of their control rooms using our Aeolian® Sound Diffusers. In a couple of the pics you can also see our Model C & Model F Art Diffusors® (black) in the ceiling!
Health Safety and Welfare (HSW) credits are vital to architects in their continuing education and to safeguarding the public, which is why they are required by the AIA to maintain a license. While some states vary on their requirements, AIA Architect members are required to complete 18 Learning Units (LUs) from registered AIA/CES providers – 12 of those must be in the topic area of Health Safety and Welfare (HSW).
To assist our community of architects in this task, Acoustics First® has completed the requirements to administer the AIA/CES approved HSW course “Architectural Acoustics” – developed by the Technical Committee on Architectural Acoustics (TCAA) within the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) – http://www.tcaaasa.org.
Being active in the ASA and the AIA, Acoustics First® is proud to support the continuing education of AIA Architect members in the field of acoustics.
For more information, stop by the Acoustics First® Booth (#425), or the Region of Virginias Breakfast at the New York Hilton Midtown (7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.) on Friday and speak with Jim DeGrandis. Alternately, you can request more information from firstname.lastname@example.org or call Acoustics First® toll free at (888) 765-2900.
This month, Acoustics First® is pleased to announce the return of the Sonora® Sound Shim™!
The new version of this product features a simplified construction, a higher NRC and increased low-end absorption. These tapered ‘wedge’ panels are a great alternative for those looking to add some architectural panache, while simultaneously helping to control those troublesome ‘bass’ frequencies. Sound Shims™ are a particularly good option for spaces such as auditoriums and theaters. Available in sizes up to 4’ x 8’.
