Premier acoustic panel manufacturer Snowsound has launched new patented Snowsound-Fibre textile products that expand the category, meeting the growing demand for acoustic comfort. Sold in rolls, Snowsound-Fibre textiles can be used for window shades, curtains, partitions, draperies, upholstery, canopies and a myriad of other applications.
"Snowsound's new sound-absorbing textiles optimise room acoustics, while offering complementary applications that go beyond existing solutions. These acoustic fabrics will be initially available in 41 texture/colour combinations that designers and architects will embrace. You really have to touch these woven textiles to fully appreciate them," explains Michael Dardashti, Snowsound executive vice president for North America.
Unlike most other textiles, Snowsound-Fibre textiles offer significant sound absorption properties due to completely unique technology.
Snowsound-Fibre textiles come in six different patented microscopic weave geometries, each offering a distinct tactile experience. 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. All have been tested for colour fastness and abrasion. Five types can be washed - one of these even has bacteriostatic, fused, silver ions which are ideal for healthcare environments.
Diesis is a Snowsound-Fibre object - a distinctively shaped 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 wire equipped with metal ball bearings to allow free rotation.
Giotto is a sound-absorbing room fixture that uses Snowsound's original patented technology. Its pure geometric form consists of a circular panel 47 inches in diameter available in a variety of colours. Whether wall or ceiling mounted, the result is an intriguing treatment that provides acoustic comfort. Sleek wall brackets and suspended mounting options are available.
Snowsound Art is an acoustic panel with unique graphic art. Snowsound Art displays Gillo Dorfles' designs. Dorfles is distinguished as the oldest living art critic at 107 years old. Born in Italy, the painter and artist was a contemporary of Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. The outer panel cover is durable, Trevira CS polyester fabric. Wall brackets and aircraft cable ceiling mounting options are available.
Oversize Baffle expands on the popular Baffle panel system - 2015 Silver Best of NeoCon recipient. Compatible suspension mounting hardware is available.
Three new mounting solutions offer added methods of using existing panels. Snowfix flush mounting brackets support Baffle, Oversize Baffle, Oversize and Snowsound Art panels and are available in matte white and stain nickel finishes. New Corner mounting hardware includes two different size desktop brackets with weighted base plates for free-standing applications. The flap chain suspension system allows designers to construct unique patterns of ceiling flap panels, using combinations of two different length interlocking suspended rods and up to 13 feet of aircraft cable.
