Ecophon acoustic wall panel systems
The traditional way to add sound absorption to a room is to install a suspended acoustic ceiling. However, this is not always possible or it may be that only some parts of the ceiling area can be treated with sound-absorbing material.
Ecophon offers wall panel systems with different types of surfaces and profiles. The choice of system depends on the type of premises in which it is to be installed. In schools for instance, a surface with high impact resistance is recommended while, in a prestigious office, a surface and profile with high aesthetic qualities would be preferable.
