Auralex Continues Green Initiatives with Launch of New Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series at AES 2010
First Line of Acoustical Products Made from 100% Eco-Friendly Bamboo
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, continues its long history of green innovation by pioneering the first line of acoustical products made from 100% Eco-Friendly bamboo, the Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series at AES 2010 (Booth 729). The new line, which consists of the WavePrism, WaveLens, QuadraTec, Peak Pyramid Diffusor and KeyPacs, retains the longevity and acoustical qualities Auralex is known for with green and acoustical properties of natural bamboo.
â€œAuralex prides itself on being an environmentally friendly company and we are excited to announce an entire line of bamboo-based products as a green alternative to traditional hardwood,â€? says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics. â€œAuralex will continue to fine-tune its manufacturing in order to better sustain the earthâ€™s resources while also producing a great acoustical treatment solution.â€?
The Auralex WavePrism eliminates flutter echoes and other acoustical anomalies without removing acoustical energy from the space. The closed box design configuration of the product disperses sound evenly to create a more consistent listening or recording environment. The WavePrism is sized to drop into a suspended ceiling grid or can be wall mounted using mechanical fasteners.
Auralex WaveLensâ€™ open-boxed design scatters and redirects acoustical energy. The WaveLens can be beneficial in numerous applications as it can create a â€œlarge soundâ€? in a small room, as it can optimize existing absorption panels by redirecting the sound energy.
The QuadraTecâ€™s unique tiered design provides excellent scattering properties, resulting in a warm, musical character to the dispersed sound. The nested pair offers two unique diffusion tools that, when used in combination with each other, can result in a more spacious feel in any room. The lightweight design allows QuadraTec diffusors to be placed in suspended ceiling grids or attached to wall surfaces with mechanical fasteners.
Auralexâ€™s Peak Pyramid Diffusor is optimized to provide high-quality sound diffusion while also doubling as an effective bass trap when filled with absorptive material. These lightweight, sturdy pyramid-shaped diffusors are sized so that they can be easily dropped into a suspended ceiling grid or installed onto wall surfaces using mechanical fasteners.
KeyPacs are magnet-based panels that have the ability to mount to Auralex ProPanels or Studiofoam. Since most rooms are not dedicated to one particular application, these perforated absorption covers allow users to have a more live or dry room on the fly without having to reconfigure the entire space. Available in three configurations ? 9 Hole, Bubble and StarÂ¬ ? KeyPacs can fine tune any absorption treatment to be more effective and create a more acoustically balanced space.
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world and, when placed in the proper climate, can grow up to eight feet a day. Bamboo, which has the strength characteristics of traditional hardwoods, is actually a grass and therefore provides environmental sustainability that traditional hardwoods cannot. Itâ€™s important to note that the type of bamboo used in the production of this product is different than the bamboo that pandas and other animals use for food.
Consumers are becoming more conscious of the environment and are increasingly utilizing green building and renovation techniques. As part of this environmental shift, companies can now obtain LEED certification which is a measurement tool that can qualify construction projects for tax rebates and zoning allowances. Auralexâ€™s Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusors can be helpful in achieving LEED certification, specifically in the Materials & Resources category.
