EKOFORM™ Design sound-absorbing panels
Ekoform™ is a new acoustic panel line engineered to reduce and control reverberation problems, suitable for any environment because of its simple and elegant design.
Ekoform™ is an ideal alternative to traditional fabric wrapped panel: using an innovative thermoforming production process of hot pressing at a high pressure, simple and complex tridimensional surfaces can be realized.
Ekoform™ panels represent an excellent technical solution for acoustic treatment of spaces where elegant design and high acoustic performances are required.
The panels could be installed on the wall with a simple bonding or mechanical system, incorporated into the traditional false ceiling structure or hung to the ceiling using cables (horizontal or vertical as “baffles”). In particular, the installation of these panels as baffle can increase the acoustic results by using the diffractive effect of the sound waves generated by the vertical position. It also represents a technical solution for the acoustic treatment of environments in which any installation to the ceiling may be problematic, for example if naturally lit by skylights: using this kind of installation is possible to realize the acoustic treatment without compromising the natural lighting in the room.
Ekoform™ panels production takes care of the environment using recyclable and healthy materials, and excluding the use of formaldehyde and FAV (glassy artificial fibers, glass and rock wool), avoiding the dispersion of inhalable powders in the environment.
Ekoform™ panels are designed according to the acoustic principles of sound absorption by porosity and vibrating damping sheet.
This specific feature is realized through a thermo-smoothing treatment of the polyester surface (vibrating damping sheet), that improve the absorbing performance at low frequencies, where the common absorbing panels are not particularly effective.
The acoustic benefit is further increased by the capacity of the polyester fiber to produce dissipation from the incident sound energy, using the vibration and rubbing of the filaments that compose it.
The acoustic performances of this kind of panel can be increased by installing them in vertical position as a “baffle”: this solution improves the final acoustic result because of the double action of the panel that breaks down and deflect the sound waves (diffraction) and absorbs them for porosity (sound absorption).
A NEW TECHNOLOGY
Ekoform™ sound absorbing panels are certainly different from traditional flat acoustic panels covered with fabric, both for design and for construction technology.
The panels are realized by a hot pressure molding system that can make any kind of surface, simple or complex, bi or three-dimensional.
Considering the high aesthetic potential and the commercial success of Ekoform™, Acustico® is constantly researching and introducing new patterns for this line of panel; on request, Acustico® can even develop specific projects and provide customized molds, creating special and exclusive series.
DIMENSIONS AND COLORS
Ekoform™ panels are available in different sizes and in two versions: single-sided (fabric covering on one side) ideal for wall or ceiling installation, or double-sided (fabric covering on both sides) for ceiling installation with the baffles solution.
STANDARD SIZE AND DIMENSIONS Ø (measures in mm): 595x595 - 300x900 - 1195x595;
Any 3D design can be realized if requested, by designing a specific mold.
COLORS: wide range of fabric available, in different texture and colors.
Ekoform™ panels can be installed to the ceiling or on the wall using different mounting system. The installation requires few simple steps, accurately described in the mounting instructions supplied to the Client.
