Primacoustic Broadway is a range of high performance fabric covered acoustic panels designed for use in applications where superior acoustic performance is desired and safety is of utmost concern.
Made from high density 6lb per cubic foot (96 kg/m³) glass wool, Broadway panels have up to six times greater density than typical foam panels for balanced absorption throughout the audio listening range. Each panel is fully encapsulated with micromesh and edges are resin hardened to assure safe handling during installation. Panels are then covered in a tough yet acoustically transparent fabric and offered in three ‘architecturally neutral’ colors with choice of square or bevelled edges. Panels may alternately be re-covered with any breathable fabric to suit those with greater artistic flare.
Installation is easy! Broadway panels hang as easy as pictures using a choice of impalers. Should you decide to relocate the panels, clean up is simply a matter of filling a screw hole and touching up the paint. Four standard panel sizes are offered with choice of 1″ (25mm), 2″ (51mm) or 3″ (76mm) thicknesses. This allows the designer to attenuate voice or flutter echo using thinner, more affordable 1″ panels for installations such as offices or call centers, or opt for thicker 2″ or 3″ panels for music related installations such as theater, studio and broadcast where broadband absorption may be required.
All Broadway panels are laboratory tested for acoustic performance and Class-A/1 fire safety by meeting stringent ASTM-E84 and Can-UL S102 requirements for flame spread and smoke development. This makes Broadway panels safe for use in commercial, government and institutional installations.
Broadway… high performance acoustic panels that look great, are easy to install and safe to use anywhere!
Primacoustic Paintables™ are an innovative acoustic panel range that are finished in Absolute White™, or can be repainted to the color of your choice! The design begins with the same high-density 6lb per cubic foot (96kg/m3) glass wool core that is used in the Broadway series panels. Rather than wrapping the panel in fabric, the face and edges of the Paintables are coated in a breathable latex finish that allows them to be spray-painted without affecting acoustic performance.
Paintables provide balanced absorption at all frequencies, and are available in a variety of sizes. This makes them suitable for both large scale and small room installations including houses-of-worship, airports, home theatres, offices, call centers, boardrooms, restaurants, video conferencing, huddle rooms, broadcast facilities and recording studios of all sizes.
Paintables Are Also Printable!
The unique coated surface of the Paintables panels can be custom printed at your local print shop. Using UV flatbed printer technology, many commercial printers can apply custom graphics, photos, logos, or the image of your choice to the face of the panel. This high-resolution printing applies a thin coating in vivid color without affecting the acoustic performace of the panel. Complete customization of your acoustic treatment is now possible!
Primacoustic Hercules™ panels are absorption panels that are designed to withstand the abuse of environments such as gymnasiums, offices, classrooms, and other public occupancy spaces. While most acoustic panels are delicate and susceptible to damage, Hercules will help to reduce reverberation while looking like new after repeated impact.
Hercules Impact-resistant panels are manufactured from the same high-density (6pcf/96kg/m3) glass wool core as Primacoustic Broadway, but the face of the panel is covered with a high-density fiberglass layer. This facing allows the panel to effectively absorb most frequencies, but the protection will prevent damage occurring from accidental contact. Whether someone bumps into the panel, or a basketball bounces off it in a gymnasium, the Hercules panel will remain looking fresh and intact. This durable facing even allows for the use of thumbtacks in the panel, making it ideal for office spaces or schools.
Hercules panels measure 24”x48”x2” (60x120x5cm) with square edges, and are available in beige or grey acoustically transparent fabric.
