Downtown Style Meets High Efficiency
You may notice that the surface of this panel consists of multi-level cubes. This is not merely a decorative flourish to help jazz up a blank wall (though it does that nicely). These cube shapes extend from the wall like a block of horizontal skyscrapers in order to present more sound-capturing area to the room, the slight height differences exposing sides that would otherwise be hidden.
On top of that, this plum panel has earned an NRC rating of 0.80, which tells us that the panel absorbs 80% of all the sound that reaches it, taking noise down notches, from a cacophonous roar to a mentally-managable murmur.
A big part of the reason this panel is so effective is its material. The pressed polyester fiberboard used to build it consists of 50% recycled plastic bottles, making it both lightweight and environmentally friendly. And it's been tested according to ASTM E84-08 standards—with a Euro Class B fire rating, to boot.
