ProWave is a set of sound absorber tiles that form a versatile acoustic panel; their special format in individual tiles, in white colour, it allows creating many different patterns that brings a new dimension of aesthetic and functional possibilities with an extremely high sound absorption.
They are made of high quality fireproof Basotect® foam, combines high sound absorption efficiency, durability and good fire-resistance, Class 1 (mandatory requirement for public places).
An optimised acoustic treatment for establishments with reverberation problems that require high sound absorption with the best fire resistance (public buildings) and fine aesthetic, such as: restaurants, cafes, pubs, nightclubs, dance halls, classrooms, dining rooms, conference rooms, rehearsal rooms and offices.
It’s specifically recommended for large rooms with high ceilings (big volumes) where it is possible to spread out a big tile to get maximum acoustic performance and a unique aesthetic.
- Individual panel size: 300mm x 300mm x 100mm (1ft x 1ft x 4inch)
- Colour: White
- Shape: Wedge/Wave
- Set of 9 panels.
- Area coverage = 9 sqft
Habitually they are fixed directly to the ceiling using a suitable Adhesive like SR505 or HeatX
All NanKarrow acoustic foam products have been specially engineered to:
- Maximize acoustical performance
- Maximize longevity
- Maximize flame retardancy
- Maximize aesthetics
Non-Nankarrow ”poly-” foams (can be polyesters, polyethers, polyurethanes, etc.) usually:
- Have inferior acoustical performance
- ”Crumble” or otherwise deteriorate over time
- Are much more flammable
- Aren’t as aesthetically pleasing
The acoustical characteristics of foams are dependent on many factors. The more important of these are density and surface area. Nankarrow research engineers strive to maximize these two factors in all our products to achieve the highest possible acoustical performance.
There are numerous look-alike products that have a similar appearance, but are lacking in performance. Many of these copies are of much lower density, which keeps costs down, but severely diminish the absorptive performance. This is especially true in mid and low frequencies.
We hear many, many horror stories of folks who have gone with ”other” foams only to find little foam ”crumbs” all over their gear – sometimes in a matter of months! Our ”secret recipe” of acoustical foam minimizes this effect. This is highly dependent on the environment in which the panels are in – temperature and moisture changes are the biggest causes of premature ageing. Placing the panels in direct sunlight will also affect them negatively. Nankarrow as been around for over two decades in some installations and it shows no signs of deterioration. ”As good as new!”
You may or may not have read disclaimers on ”other” foams about how they are ”flammable.” We strongly suggest that you take a matchstick or lighter and try to set fire to any acoustic foam you buy! You will find that Nankarrow foams have serious flame retardant properties. Several of our products achieve the highest possible by polymeric acoustical foams – Class A*. The foam will ”self-extinguish” if briefly exposed to a flame.
Ever been to a studio that used bedding foam for treatment? Looks cheap, doesn’t it? Well, Nankarrow offers a wide range of colors and shapes of acoustical foams to meet almost anyone’s tastes. All designs yield looks that are consistent with state-of-the-art décor and high-class tastes. Please browse through the many installation photos to see just a small sampling of the different ‘looks’ you can get!
