Furniture configuration with acoustic elements peTEX

Screen peTEX - Optimisation of reverberation time

Acoustics, light and flexible

The peTEX screen enables the optimization of acoustics while maintaining maximum flexibility. The elements are highly sound-absorbing and also very light. With a weight per unit area of only 4 kg/m², the walls can be moved very easily and thus support the flexibility of the room. Work settings can be changed very easily and quickly and the acoustics can be adjusted accordingly. The acoustic screens consist of a compacted, recyclable fibre mat. The material itself has been created in the recycling process, is grey and forms a grey mottled surface reminiscent of felt. The absorber elements can be set up freely as partitions on clamping feet or clamped to table tops using appropriate adapters or mounted on sideboards. The elements are available in many sizes. The light construction allows the production of large and thus cost-optimised elements. Just ask us. We will be happy to advise you.

Speech intelligibility - Volume - Direct sound propagation

For the room acoustic planning of open office areas the so-called syllable comprehensibility is of elementary importance. Above all, an acoustic ceiling ensures that the reverberation time in the room is reduced. It therefore has an influence on the noise level and ensures that it sinks accordingly. However, only wall elements can influence the propagation of directly emitted sound. Ideally placed directly in front of the emission sources, which is usually the employee on the phone, they can enormously reduce the level of silver intelligibility across workplaces. Depending on the design of the wall elements, these configurations result in remarkable reductions in the sound level between workstations. You should also take a look at our silentUNIT product.

Wall absorber:

Often the ceiling is hardly usable to improve the room acoustics. The installation of sound-absorbing measures such as ceiling sails is made more difficult by the large number of installations already in place or to be planned. Lighting, ventilation, air conditioning units or fire protection components only allow the installation of ceiling sails or baffle systems to a limited extent. Wall absorbers offer an attractive solution at this point. They are easy to install, similar to a picture. Wall surfaces also remain increasingly free because the need for storage space is continuously decreasing.

The wall absorbers can also be mounted on glass. This optimises the acoustics in closed rooms through glass walls. However, this option also offers interesting possibilities for opening office areas. These silentUNIT sound barriers effectively interrupt the propagation of sound and also optimise the reverberation time. The transparency is nevertheless retained. Communication and concentration are equally supported.

Rooms convey a silent message:

New work, agile working, from the workplace to the place of work, spatial diversity - these terms convey the ideas of modern office space planning. Rooms or office zones should convey a quiet message and tell the user which tasks they are suitable for. Let's take a silent area. Furniture and design, including the walls, must show that any noise can be avoided here. Peace and concentration are required. Conversations and telephony are not desired. Unavoidable noises (e.g. the rattling of the keyboard) must be absorbed as much as possible. Wall absorbers, suitable for furniture, help to ensure function and message.

peTEX now also coloured

The peTEX acoustic screens are available in the following colours. Please note that the edge always remains grey.
