Acoustical Products Made from 100% Eco-Friendly Bamboo

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, SEPTEMBER 8, 2011 ¨C Auralex® Acoustics, Inc.,  the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, continues  its long history of environmentally conscious product innovations with  the launch of acoustical products made from 100% Eco-Friendly bamboo, the Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series, at CEDIA 2011 (Booth 1017). 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.

¡°As  a green alternative to traditional hardwood, Auralex¡¯s new Sustain  Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series is the perfect complement to any home  d¨¦cor,¡± says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics.  ¡°Through this new line of bamboo-based products, our home theater and  residential customers now have an even broader range of products to  choose from, both acoustically and aesthetically.¡±

The  Auralex WavePrism eliminates flutter echoes and other acoustical  anomalies without removing acoustical energy from the space. The closed  box design of the product disperses sound evenly to create a more  consistent audio environment.  The WavePrism is sized to drop into a  suspended ceiling grid or can be wall mounted using mechanical  fasteners.

Auralex  WaveLens¡¯ open-boxed design scatters and redirects acoustical energy.  The WaveLens can be beneficial in numerous applications as it can create  a ¡°large sound¡± in a small room, while optimizing existing absorption  panels by redirecting the sound energy.

The  QuadraTec¡¯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.

Auralex¡¯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 designed to be mounted to the face of absorptive panels; such as, Auralex¡¯s ProPanels or Studiofoam. These  specifically designed panels will fine-tune existing absorption  treatment to be more effective in the low and mid range while not  killing off the higher frequencies ¨D yielding a room that is well balanced across the frequency range. KeyPacs are available in three configurations ¨D 9 Hole, Bubble and Star­.

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. It¡¯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, residences are now obtaining LEED certification,  which can qualify construction projects for tax rebates and zoning  allowances. Auralex¡¯s Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusors can be helpful in  achieving LEED certification, specifically in the Materials &  Resources category.
