The Elegance of Wood

Let’s talk about aesthetics first. Every Akupanel is a work of art, draped in authentic wood veneer. The meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into each panel ensures that every piece is unique and carries its own grain, story, and character. But for those looking to experiment beyond wood, there’s a wealth of choices. From custom stains, paints, or prints, to solid colors and wood grain patterns, AKUPANEL offers a multitude of customization options to perfectly match and elevate any design aesthetic.

A Symphony of Sound Absorption

Beyond its good looks, the AKUPANEL boasts of superior sound absorption capabilities. At its heart are fifteen slats, each backed with a Resonance Acoustic panel, enhancing its ability to capture and dampen sound waves. This isn’t just about minimizing noise but also refining the sound quality of any space. Whether it’s a home, an office, or a studio, the Akupanel can effectively lower noise reverberation time.

Now, what’s impressive is the panel’s Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC). With an NRC of 0.97 at a frequency of 1,000HZ, it is exceptionally efficient. To put it into perspective, the human voice, loud conversations, and many regular household noises range between 500-2,000HZ. The Akupanel’s average NRC within this range stands at an impressive 0.66. In layman’s terms, it’s like having a cushion that softens noise, making any environment sound just right.

Elevating Design

For designers, the AKUPANEL provides more than just one way to play. The same veneer that graces the face of each AKUPANEL can also be procured separately, ensuring that design concepts flow seamlessly across spaces. It’s a boon for cohesive design stories, allowing spaces to resonate with the same visual language.

The latest in the AKUPANEL lineup is the 15 WRAPPED SLATS edition. This means that each colored MDF slat is fully covered, offering a more polished look and feel. It’s a testament to Acoustical Art Concepts‘ commitment to innovation and constant improvement.

Safety First

Apart from aesthetics and functionality, safety is paramount. Each Akupanel undergoes rigorous testing, in line with the Standard ANSI/UL723. This ensures that the material’s surface burning characteristics, specifically its flame spread and smoke developed indices, are evaluated when exposed to fire. It’s heartening to note that the core material of the PET and the wooden substrate materials boast a Class A rating, ensuring that the panels not only look and sound great but are also safe.
