Snowsound designs new textiles for acoustic comfort
Premier acoustic panel manufacturer Snowsound has come up with new patented Snowsound-Fibre textile products that meet the growing demand for acoustic comfort. The need to live and work in quiet spaces and reduce acoustic reverberation can be met with these fabrics which can be used for window/roller shades, curtains, partitions, sheers and draperies.

"Snowsound's new sound-absorbing textiles optimise room acoustics, providing complementary applications that perform unlike any existing material in the fabric industry. These acoustic fabrics are available in 41 texture/colour combinations that designers and architects will embrace. You really have to see, touch and experience these textiles to fully appreciate them," explains Michael Dardashti, Snowsound executive vice president for North America.

Sold in rolls, Snowsound-Fibre textiles can be used for window/roller shades, curtains, partitions, sheers, draperies, upholstery, canopies and a myriad of other applications. Unlike most other textiles, they offer significant sound absorption properties due to completely unique technology. Depending upon the fibre type and installation, NRCs of 1.0 are achievable; performing even better than traditional padded acoustical panels.

Snowsound-Fibre textiles come in six different patented microscopic weave geometries, each offering a distinct tactile experience. From rich 1.7mm velvet to 0.6mm sheer fabric, the visual experience is as impressive as the underlying acoustic technology is effective. Made from high-quality 100 per cent polyester fibre, these textiles are all flammability tested, GREENGUARD Gold certified and 100 per cent recyclable, producing durable, environmentally sustainable solutions. Snowsound-Fibre does not contain felt, wool or other organic materials that are difficult to recycle. All have been tested for colour fastness and abrasion. Five types can be washed and ironed – one of these even has bacteriostatic, fused, silver ions which are ideal for healthcare environments.

These fibre materials have different technical properties that address diverse applications and environments, blending with the style of a given space to meet the interior design objectives. The installation flexibility provides the designer creative ways to coordinate with furniture.

Diesis is a Snowsound-Fibre object that won a Best of NeoCon Silver Award this June. It is a distinctively shaped velvet drapery – made of 100 per cent polyester with polyester thread stitching. The combination of the fabric object design and air gap layers creates a significant sound absorbing solution. The free-standing version is attached to an upper structure with a removable steel plate. The ceiling attached version uses steel aircraft cable equipped with metal ball bearings to allow free rotation. Bemolle is a wall mounted Snowsound-Fibre object, while Sipario is a wall mounted triangular shaped object that won a Best of NeoCon Silver Award in 2016.

The combination of these unique features, ease of use, installation convenience, and application versatility is why architects and interior designers prefer Snowsound to other acoustic solutions. Snowsound-Fibre products and rolls of acoustic fabrics are available in a variety of colours. (SV)
