It’s good to have options in ceiling treatments. Some environments have high ceilings that benefit from vertically-hanging baffles, while other environments have lower ceilings in which clouds are more appropriate. In some cases the aesthetic will dictate which product would be best – but what if there was one product that could do both?
The Fireflex™ Wave has a unique, undulating shape that adds visual interest along with acoustic absorption – but it has another feature which few materials can boast. Due to the Class 1(A) melamine foam construction, the corkscrew mounting hardware can be installed wherever it is needed – including on the edges.
By installing the hardware on the edges instead of the face, you are given the option to also hang the Waves in a vertical orientation as baffles. The wave shape works well aesthetically in either orientation – horizontal or vertical.
In rooms with a lower ceiling, the horizontal orientation of clouds provides more headroom while the undulating shape optimizes the Wave’s surface area for absorption. In larger spaces with high ceilings, you can add more absorptive surface area by hanging the Waves as baffles, and provide a more organic look than you get with flat baffles.
When overhead acoustic absorption is required, turn to Acoustics First®.
As people begin to head back into their places of worship, the focus on acoustics has again come to the forefront. Many have been streaming services and listening to music in their homes, where they had short reverb times and good acoustic clarity. They are experiencing a stark contrast in the large reverberant churches to which they are returning. By adding acoustic absorption in a space, you can improve clarity and reduce reflections which can fatigue the listeners.
The Sonora® Panels above are helping to break up the reflections coming from the balcony face and the rear balcony wall, improving the clarity of the voices and the music within the space. This helps to create an intimate and comfortable acoustic environment for those in attendance – and makes it feel more like home.
Sometimes a simple solution is the best solution. That is the guiding philosophy behind our new Sonora® Corner Bass Trap. Take one 4” thick, 6-7pcf sound absorbing fiberglass panel, back bevel to fit in a corner, front bevel for a nice finished look, throw in a few corner clips for mounting, and done!
