Create a modern space and drastically improve the acoustics within your room.
The Akupanel was created with the purpose of improving peoples favorite spaces. If you have ever been in a room with bad acoustics, then you know the problem – bad acoustics can drive you crazy! But now you can do something about it, while also improving the looks in your room.
Imagine a slat wall on an end wall in your livingroom or on your ceiling. It would not only dampen the sound – surely it would also provide you with a steady flow of compliments from everyone who sees it.
Carefully designed for the purpose of lowering the level of noise in your room.
Are you having a hard time hearing what people are saying? Problems with poor acoustics are a major problem in many rooms, but a slat wall or ceiling enables you to create acoustic wellbeing for yourself and the people you surround yourself with.
Sound consists of waves and when the sound hit a hard surface it continues to reflect back into the room, which creates reverberation. However, the acoustical panels breaks and absorbs the sound waves when it hits the felt and the lamellas. Hereby it prevent the sound from reflecting back into the room, which ultimately eliminates reverberation.
Experience a whole new world of acoustical wellbeing.
Improved speech comprehension
"Can you say that one more time, please?" will be a sentence of the past. In rooms with low reverberation it is easier to hear what people are saying.
Improve your wellbeing and reduce stress levels.
Being in an environment with poor acoustics can have negative affects on your health and general wellbeing. Removing reverberation has significant health benefits.
The 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.
Sound Class A – the best possible rating.
In an official soundtest our Akupanel reached the highest rating possible – Sound Class A. In order to reach Sound Class A, you have to install mineral wool behind the panels (check out our installation guide). However, you can also install the panels directly on your wall, and by doing so the panels will reach Sound Class D, which is also very effective when it comes to dampening the sound.
As you can see on the graph the panels are most effective at frequencies between 300 Hz and 2000 Hz, which are the common noice levels that most people are experiencing. In reality this means that the panels will dampen both high and deep sounds. The graph above is based on acoustic panels mounted on a 45 mm. batten with mineral wool behind the panels.
We care for the environment. That’s why we prefer to use sustainable materials in our products.
Our acoustical is made from recycled plastic, which means that we take a waste product and transform it into something useful and beautiful.
The felt is to absorbs the sound waves and dampens the sound.
Our core consists of a medium density fibreboard and is available in black or natural.
The slats create diffusion, which essentially means that they break the sound waves and thereby dampen the sound.
Wood from sustainable forestry
All the wood we use comes from sustainable forestry, which ensures that the forest can reproduce more trees than cutted.
In addition, our supplier provides good working conditions for the people working in the forest, while protecting and respecting the wildlife in the forest.
You do not need to be a professional to install the panels. It is the perfect DIY project.
For most people, installing the panels would be an entertaining DIY project. It is very simple – you can cut the panels with almost any saw and fix it with screws through the felt. It could not be simpler.
If you prefer to watch DIY projects only on TV, then you should hire a joiner/carpenter to do the work for you. He shouldn’t take long – your local joiner could easily install it for you. Just show him the installation instructions.
We are happy to help you. If you have any questions, just let us know.
My Wall are higher than 2.4m, what do I do?
This is not too much of a problem, the panels can be butted up to each-other, to achieve any length you desire. We have an example of this on Instagram – Clik here
Can I mount the panels directly to the wall?
Of course. Mounting the panels directly to the wall is not a problem however if you would like to achieve the best acoustic coefficient, you will need to use the batten system as set out in our installation guide.
What’s the lead time?
Delivery time is approximately 3-5 days.
Can I get the panels in another size?
No. We only have a standard size of 240 c 60 x 2,2 cm. However, the panels can be cut to make it fit any surface. Furthermore the panels can be mounted in extension of each other if needed.
Where are you based?
We have an office near Loughton, Essex. We have some of the panels in our warehouse that you are able to view, upon request however the office is not manned by our staff at all times.
