Mitigating noise: Accusta by Beaufurn

Beaufurn entered the panel category with the sound-absorbing Accusta. Created to relieve excessive reverberation, Accusta comes as wall or ceiling panels in seven different colors (or COM) which can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally to achieve various patterns. 

Accusta panels absorb sound, and tests show that they also improve architectural acoustics. Their perforated surface allows sound waves to travel into the core, being absorbed. The three-dimensional section of the acoustic panel prevents the sound waves from bouncing straight back, avoiding echoes. The 17-inch-by-17-inch panels are created with molded, medium density polyester felt and covered with a colored polyester fabric. The material is sound absorbent, fire resistant, lightweight, durable and 100 percent recyclable. Panels are mounted on the wall or ceiling with a patented hidden bracket using small nails, eliminating the need for drilling.
