Premier acoustic panel manufacturer Snowsound has announced the launch of its new patented Snowsound-Fiber textile products that have been developed to meet the growing demand for acoustic comfort.

"Snowsound's new sound-absorbing textiles optimise room acoustics, while offering complementary applications that go beyond existing solutions. These acoustic fabrics will be initially available in 41 texture/colour combinations that designers and architects will embrace. You really have to touch these woven textiles to fully appreciate them," explained Michael Dardashti, Snowsound Executive Vice President for North America.

Sold in rolls, Snowsound-Fiber textiles can be used for window shades, curtains, partitions, draperies, upholstery, canopies and more. Unlike most other textiles, they are said to offer significant sound absorption properties due to a unique technology, the company reports.

Snowsound-Fiber textiles

Snowsound-Fiber textiles come in six different patented microscopic weave geometries, each offering a distinct tactile experience, according to the manufacturer. “Made from 100% polyester fibre, these textiles are all flammability tested, Greenguard Gold certified and 100% recyclable, producing durable, environmentally sustainable solutions,” the company explains. “All have been tested for colour fastness and abrasion. Five types can be washed – one of these even has bacteriostatic, fused, silver ions which are ideal for healthcare environments.”

Diesis is a Snowsound-Fiber object – a distinctively shaped drapery – made of 100% polyester with polyester thread stitching. The combination of the fabric object design and air gap layers creates a significant sound absorbing solution. The free-standing version is attached to an upper structure with a removable steel plate. The ceiling attached version uses steel wire equipped with metal ball bearings to allow free rotation.

Giotto is a sound-absorbing room fixture that uses Snowsound's original patented technology. Its geometric form consists of a circular panel 47 inches in diameter available in a variety of colours. Sleek wall brackets and suspended mounting options are available.

Snowsound Art is an acoustic panel with unique graphic art. Snowsound Art displays designs of Gillo Dorfles, a distinguished art critic. Born in Italy, the painter and artist was a contemporary of Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. The outer panel cover is durable, Trevira CS polyester fabric. Wall brackets and aircraft cable ceiling mounting options are available.

Oversize Baffle expands on the popular Baffle panel system – 2015 Silver Best of NeoCon recipient – with the addition of 48"x48" and 48"x63" sizes. Compatible suspension mounting hardware is available.

New mounting solutions

Three new mounting solutions offer added methods of using existing panels. Snowfix flush mounting brackets support Baffle, Oversize Baffle, Oversize and Snowsound Art panels and are available in matte white and stain nickel finishes.

New Corner mounting hardware includes two different size desktop brackets with weighted base plates for free-standing applications. The Flap Chain suspension system allows designers to construct unique patterns of ceiling Flap panels, using combinations of two different length interlocking suspended rods and up to 13 feet of aircraft cable.
