US manufacturer unveils new absorbent panels
Soon to celebrate its 35th anniversary, US manufacturer of acoustical treatmeant Auralex has unveiled its new UtiliTek sound absorbent panels.
With a design that incorporates the input of leading contractors and system integrators, the UtiliTek panels are similar in function and design to Auralex’s ProPanel series. The fabric-covered, acoustically absorptive panels are aimed at reducing unwanted room reflections and reverberation, providing a more accurate listening experience. UtiliTek panels are also composed of Class A fire-rated materials and feature a recycled absorbent core.
UtiliTek is available in four thicknesses and two edge profiles. The beveled-edge style is available in 2'x2'x1", 2'x4'x1" and 2'x4'x2" sizes. The square-edge style is available in a 2'x4'x3" size that is designed for corner mounting between two walls or across wall/ceiling junctures for moderate low-frequency control.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to the sound contracting/fixed installation market sectors, we wanted to offer solutions for contractors working with the tighter budgets that are common in today’s economy,” stated Eric Smith, Auralex founder and president. “UtiliTek panels can be employed in a wide variety of installations, including clubs, live performance venues, restaurants/bars, houses of worship, corporate, municipal and residential installations."
