When you are a fast growing, vibrant leading company in San Diego, California, and you are fitting out a new office building, everything needs to be perfect. It has to look fantastic … and it also needs to sound fantastic.
So, what do you do when you discover that your front entryway, elevator lobbies, and stairway all have an echo problem? You call in Acoufelt to solve the acoustical problems without compromising the integrity of the aesthetic design. “As it turns out, the best location for acoustic treatment was the ceiling”, explains local representative Amy Dufrane “The high aesthetic expectation of the client made this job perfect for our recently launched product WoodBeQuiet™”.
WoodBeQuiet™ planks utilise Acoufelt’s OuietPrint™ capability to give the product the appearance of real wood planks. Wood is sound reflective and can also be heavy, so it is not always the perfect material for creating a positive soundscape – especially for the ceiling, where a lightweight product is often required. In this case, an acoustic solution that has all of the appearance of real wood panelling was highly desirable for the client.
WoodBeQuiet™ comes in a number of color options to emulate different types of wood finishes. In this case, the client chose “picket fence”, which was installed by specialty contractor CMS.
“The client was really happy and so were we”, says Amy. “Our new WoodBeQuiet™ product range had just become available, and this project demonstrated how our high-resolution print technology can really deliver a positive result for our clients”.
