When we talk about expertly designed acoustical products, we tend not to consider the impact those products may have on the lighting of a space. After all, any design decision is a give-and-take, so sacrificing some elements of design, like an abundance of natural lighting, in order to achieve a rich acoustic environment. In a world of compromise, creating innovative new tools that serve a variety of purposes is highly valued over settling for traditional approaches. For architects, acoustical engineers, and end-users alike, the Clearsorber Foil system is designed to offer a unique solution to a problem that has plagued acoustical design for decades.
Architects have sought a solution to a unique issue for quite some time now: that is, controlling excessive, disruptive reverberation while still transmitting daylight or incorporating lighting effects. In some spaces, reducing the natural lighting is simply not an option. In response, RPG Acoustical has developed the Clearsorber Panel—a micro-slotted acoustical panel that is transparent, translucent or graphically printed. This provides consumers with a unique combination of control over their view and or lighting while also offering unparalleled reflection control. Providing architects and acoustical designers the tools they need to succeed in creating spaces that offer both excellent acoustics as well as lighting is just one aspect of RPG Acoustical’s thorough approach towards development of acoustical products.
