Primacoustic Features Paintables Clouds

October 28th, 2015 | Posted in News, newsletter

Primacoustic Paintables clouds are a new series of high performance acoustic panels the user can paint. The new Paintables clouds include the circular Cirrus, the hexagonal Hexus and the square Altos. Each panel is made from 1-1/2-inch thick high density six-pound glass wool for exceptionally even absorption. Paintables are factory painted on all sides in Absolute White latex and ready for mounting. Unique to their design is a proprietary surface than enables one to lightly spray paint the panels on-site to color-match the decor without affecting the acoustical performance.

Paintables clouds are the ideal sound abatement solution for any space where communication is vital and acoustic treatment must integrate with the aesthetics of the room: houses of worship, conference centers, restaurants, offices, boardrooms, educational facilities, community halls, hotel auditoriums, broadcast facilities, museums, retail, home theaters, recording studios, gymnasiums and performance halls.
