AKUART // ACOUSTIC CHARACTERISTICS


Acoustic characteristics - That you can count on

AKUART products are made using highly efficient sound-absorbing mineral wool slabs and consist of a framework that creates space between the acoustical panel and the underlying wall surface. This optimizes the acoustic properties. The result is an acoustic performance that is better than the best wall absorbers on the market and thereby supports stricter requirements for room acoustics stated in the Danish Building Regulations. It emphasizes the importance of effective wall absorbers and recommends that 10-15% of a room’s overall sound attenuation amount is placed on the wall surfaces in schools , day care centres and offices. AKUART is one of the few companies that test their acoustic properties by third party acousticians. This means, among other things, that architects, building consultants and designers can count 100% on the acoustic characteristics of an AKUART absorbing picture. Recent tests of AKUART SmartArt 60 and AKUART Classic 50 shows that the sound attenuation is 100% The Fibertex Nonwovens A/S in the frequency range 500-4000 Hz. Page 9 ofacous11 pages Laboratory measurement sound absorption tic properties in theoffrequency range 125-500 Hz are also very good. Report no. P2.041.12 AKUART is a perfect solution for effective acoustic control in schools, day cares, offices and other environments with high demands on the acoustic conditions. APPENDIX D
