PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT: Acoustic Plasters

We are featuring Acoustic Plasters as part of our continuing series of product highlights.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT: Acoustic Stretch Fabric Systems for Room Absorption

We like to stay on top of new products and innovations and thought it would be a good idea to feature some of them on our blog. Following is the first in our series of product highlights. Acoustic Stretch Systems Acoustic stretch systems are fabric or micro-perforated vinyl membranes stretched over plastic or metal frames with sound absorbing or sound blocking material behind. These treatments can cover larger areas with fewer seams than acoustic panels. Custom options can accommodate irregular shaped rooms, including curved walls and domes. Stretch systems can be an economical way to produce an updated look by covering existing treatments without removing them. Systems can be designed with the sound absorbing material only where needed. The fabric can conceal loudspeakers or hard reflective surfaces so that they are seamlessly integrated with the sound absorbing treatments. Acoustic stretch systems can accommodate a variety of fabrics to provide many different looks. Some vinyl membranes can be screen-printed and some can be backlit. Panels can be fabricated in geometric shapes, waves and other...

Shooting Range Acoustic Consulting & Noise Control

Shooting Range Acoustic Consulting & Noise Control

Shooting Range Noise Sound transmission from gun ranges has become a growing concern as shooting sports increase in popularity, and firing ranges are built in close proximity to retail areas and residential districts. We work with developers, architects, engineers, and city planners to evaluate potential noise concerns from shooting facilities. Wave Engineering, Inc. evaluates new and existing ranges with computer modeling and on site sound measurements, and can assist with exterior noise, permitting, and compliance with state and local noise codes and ordinances. We can also recommend acoustic treatments to control noise and reverberation inside the range, retail, and classroom areas.
