SAS International has introduced an enhanced range of acoustic
baffle systems featuring standardised module sizes and carrier profiles to
offer more installation options and continuous runs.
SAS International’s updated range of standard (System 500) and
waveform (System 510) acoustic baffle systems is ideal for acoustic
treatment in open, exposed interiors and thermal mass cooling. Offering a high performing
and visually engaging design, System 500 and System 510 acoustic baffle systems
enable a different ceiling aesthetic in comparison to a traditional suspended
System 510 has a striking waveform in stark contrast to the linear
form of System 500; the baffles can be used to form individual elements or
continual rhythmic lines stretching across a ceiling plane.
Both acoustic baffle systems are recommended for noisy environments such
as airports where additional noise absorption is required. The systems are
particularly suitable for areas with high human traffic, including retail,
leisure, and education facilities.
Key features of System 500 and System 510 acoustic baffle systems include
dual-sided perforations delivering excellent acoustic performance (0.85 αw, NRC
0.9); availability in all RAL colours; ability to be suspended at a range of
heights and angles; no obstruction to smoke extraction or air ventilation
systems, increasing suitability for high traffic areas; and ease of integration
with other ceiling systems.
Acoustic baffles from SAS International are also ideal for solar shading
in large open areas such as malls or atriums where the management of solar
glare as well as acoustics is required for occupant comfort.
