Project Description

High Impact Panels

The High Impact Absorbor Panel consists of a multi-density, high performance acoustical core with hardened square or shaped edges and wrapped in an acoustical fabric. The High Impact Panels offers durability and tackability with little deviation in the performance bandwidth between 100Hz and 5000Hz, yielding a balanced NRC up to 0.90.

Hi Impact Absorbor™ Panel
In many spaces, flat reflective surfaces can cause interfering reflections and excessive reverberation which can corrupt work environments, meeting and gathering areas, music quality and speech intelligibility to name a few. One approach to controlling noise, sound reflections and excess reverberation is to utilise impact ready, lightweight sound absorbing acoustical wall and ceiling panels. RPG High Impact Absorbor™ Panels consist of a multi-layer, porous absorbing core, typically a rigid fibreglass board with a high impact outer layer, covered with a fabric choice. Panel edges are hardened and can be moulded in a variety of profiles. RPG has developed a simple and reliable method of attachment which offers fixed or removable installation utilising an impaling clip for walls, Z-bar for ceilings and embedding anchors for suspending in a ceiling cloud configuration.

High impact and tackable absorptive fabric panels are used extensively in acoustical design to control noise, sound reflections and excess reverberation where there is also the need for the product to handle more abuse and/or function as a tackable surface. In this product category, quality and ease of mounting are often problematic.

RPG offers complete, quality assured custom panel fabrication that provides a simple and reliable fixed or removable mounting.

High Impact Absorber™ Panels can be easily and quickly hung on any wall surface using RPG’s Impalit™ clip. For ceiling applications, the panels can be either direct mounted with Z-bar attachments or suspended using a cloud anchor kit. Panels can also be configured to install in a standard T-bar grid.
