Produced in DenmarkWe produce all of our acoustical panels in Ribe, Denmark. This ensures that we can maintain the highest quality available in our products. Every panels that leaves our little factory is going through a strict quality control, so that we ensure the quality. We are a Danish company, and we produce our products in Denmark. It ensures good craftsmanship, and that lives up to the very high quality standards we demand from ourselves. Even though we export to the whole world, our products are produced right here in Denmark. The way we have always done in our family. And we will continue to do so.
Our acoustic felt are made from recycled plastic bottles and all of our wood comes from sustainable forestry.We only use materials of the highest quality and using sustainable materials are a top priority. We actually care about the environment and the working conditions of the people whom we cooperate with. Furthermore we would rather pay a higher price for the raw materials, so that we can ensure that the people working in the forest can have a decent pay, than we would compromise on the price. This also ensures that we never cut down more trees than the forest can manage to reproduce. And that is also why we only use recycled plastic for the felt. We take a waste product and create something beautiful with it, so that it wont end up in our oceans. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Product dimensionsThe Akupanel measures 2400 x 600 mm, and is made from lamellae 11 mm and 27 mm deep, with a distance of 13 mm in between. The slats are mounted on a base of acoustic felt. The specially developed acoustic felt is made from recycled material and is 9 mm thick. The panel is 22 mm thick in total including the slats and the felt.
Don’t let bad acoustics drive you crazy.
Is it hard to hear what your guests are saying? Problems with bad acoustics is a major problem in many homes, but with the acoustical panels you can create acoustic wellbeing for yourself, your family, and your guests.
Sound consists of waves. And when sound waves hit a hard surface the sound is not decelerated but reflected throughout the room resulting in reverberation / reverb. The acoustic panel dampens the sound by absorbing the sound waves when they hit the felt and the slats, so the sound perish into the felt instead of around the room.
Sound test – Class A.
We did a soundtest and the panels reached Class A, which is the highest rating available. In order to reach Class A, you have to install mineral wool behind the panels – (check out the video below, that shows how it’s done). You can also install the panels directly on the wall. When doing so the panels will reach a Class D, so the panels will still dampen the sound.
As you can see on the graph, the panels are most efficient on frequencies between 300 Hz and 2000 Hz, which covers a large spektrum. In reality that means, that the panels will dampen both high notes and deep sound. Loud speech and regular noise in the home will be in the frequency between 500 – 2,000 Hz, and as it can be observed on the graph is is right here Akupanel is most efficient.
The sound test you see here is based on the acoustic panels mounted on a 45 mm stripwood with mineral wool behind the panels. This really makes a difference if you have bad acoustics in a room.In an office it can also be very useful to use, since a healthy sound environment will make employees happier and more effective. Research has also found that restaurants with good acoustics will make more revenue per guest, than those who has bad acoustics. In other words – creating a good sound environment is important for your health.
Installment is quick and easy. Do it yourself or get your carpenter to help you.Are you worried that installment is too difficult? Well – it’s not. It’s actually pretty easy and most people can do it by themselves. It’s the perfect DIY-project. Check out the video below or take a look at our installment guide – click here. If you feel like DIY-projects primarily should be something that you just watch on TV, then you should get your local carpenter to install it for you. As you can see, it is so easy to mount, that any carpenter can do it, and it shouldn’t take him that long (which is a good thing, if you pay him on an hourly rate).
