Micro-Perforated Acoustic Panels
The Absolute Maximum,
at a Complete Minimum.
at a Complete Minimum.
The SoundPly RF series are the world’s most advanced acoustic panels, providing a level of sound absorption never before achieved in a solution so compact and versatile. Demonstrating an unrivaled degree of performance, RF panels are the unequivocal choice for the most acoustically demanding environments.
SoundPly RF panels unlock new possibilities for fundamentally better ways to address environmental noise control, recasting the entire concept of how acoustic panels can be used.
The RF series was born from a zero-compromise pursuit for acoustic perfection. When challenging our top engineers with the question “How do we develop the world’s most effective acoustic panel?”, the RF series was their silent —and highly sound-absorbent— reply.
Compared with traditional acoustic panels, RF panels absorb more sound using better methods, in the most efficient way… but these panels do more than just absorb sound.
The traditional methods of absorbing and blocking sound are achieved through distinctly different, incompatible methods. The resulting trade-off between sound absorbing and sound blocking performance requires prioritizing one over the other.
Owing to their highly innovative, patented construction, SoundPly RF panels eliminate the need to make an acoustic concession. They provide such uniformly exceptional sound absorption and sound blockage; the RF series’ NRC and CAC test results have established new benchmarks for both categories and in the process redefined what is possible with an acoustic panel.
NO SMOKE. ZERO MIRRORS.
While other micro-perforated panels require large cavity spaces, additional acoustical batting, and complex installation assemblies, the RF panels are a fully-contained acoustic solution. The significance of this is difficult to overstate, since it eliminates one of the greatest frustrations acousticians regularly express—the chronic discrepancy between an acoustic system’s advertised, laboratory-certified performance, compared to that system’s actual, real world performance.
Unlike nearly every other architectural acoustic solution, the exceptional performance RF panels achieve in laboratory testing is the exact same performance they deliver in real world installations.
Like the other SoundPly panel series, RF panels can be provided with a single primer coat, or painted in the full spectrum of colors and sheens. Custom graphics and images in sizes up to 5′ x 12′ can be printed on the panels using a 1200dpi, UV-cured, color-fast printing process.
Among all the surface treatment options, the most popular for SoundPly panels is wood veneer. Hundreds of real wood and reconstituted veneer species are available in stock, and can be finished in a variety of custom stains and topcoats.
RF SERIES TECHNOLOGIES
The RF Series panels feature MicroPerfection® technology, resulting in the most advanced, effective micro-perforations ever integrated into an acoustic panel. Achieving maximum acoustic performance required engineering a process to precisely manufacture a new type of micro-perforation—one that’s smaller, cleaner, and three times deeper than any currently produced.
Dynamic Sound Control is one of the most significant benefits of the RF Series’ highly effective use of porous and resonant sound absorption. Most types of sound absorbing materials, including porous materials, experience a reduction in absorptive capacity in response to an increasing sound pressure level (SPL). Resonant absorption does the opposite.
