Hunter Douglas has launched a new, lightweight ceiling system that provides superior sound absorption for spaces in buildings with long reverberation times.
Developed in response to the need for an affordable, simple and flexible solution for acoustic problems in existing buildings, TechStyle® Islands are strong yet incredibly lightweight.
Comprising polyester and glass fibre tiles attached to U-shaped aluminium extrusion profiles, this innovative, easy-to-install product has an open structure and each weighs no more than 3.3 kg/m2 – about 25% less than alternatives.
Independent testing has demonstrated that the material properties of the TechStyle® Islands account for their high sound absorption capacity, with 75% of sound (αW = 0.75) being absorbed at frequencies between 250 and 4,000 Hertz.
The islands, which also work exceptionally well in new buildings with concrete core activation, are made of fully recyclable natural materials, do not release any volatile substances, and conform to EN 13501-1.
They come in a standard width of 1.2 metres and in 1.2, 1.8, 2.1 and 2.4 metre lengths.
