What is acousti-Art?

Sure, our architectural soundproofing products provide noise control for applications in schools, businesses, worship centers, auditoriums and industry to name a few. But they go beyond simple soundproofing… Beautifully designed and custom-printed to your specifications, our soundproofing products are just as visually appealing to your space as they are noise-absorbent.

SIZE & FLEXIBILITY

Unlike traditionally-mounted displays, Design Group’s lightweight acousti-Art® system makes it possible for one person to handle display graphics in sizes of up to 32 x 10 ft. (~10 x 3 meters).

Images can also be simply and quickly exchanged by replacing the graphics without the need to repurchase an entire panel.

EASY TO ASSEMBLE

acousti-Art® is easy to install with just a few simple steps. No previous knowledge or technical expertise is required!

The perfectly fitted sides are simply snapped together and tightened to form a stable frame. Then, the high resolution printed material complete with silicone edging is pressed into the groove of the frame.

COST-EFFECTIVE

Light-weight construction and easy-to-change graphics make acousti-Art one of the most cost-effective soundproofing products on the market. Because the panels are lighter, fewer installers are needed, and they can install more panels in less time than traditional displays. Plus, transport, assembly and handling costs are also greatly reduced.

acousti-Art Applications

Sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of your space; however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need of sound reduction within the facility is addressed.

Architecture

Our architectural acoustical design provides sound control with graphic design in large spaces including gymnasiums, cafeterias, auditoriums, arenas, theaters, lobby areas, swimming pools, and multipurpose rooms.

Typical problems include excessive reverberation which causes poor speech intelligibility, and excessive noise during events. Our goal is to match acoustical design and acoustical engineering with your design ideas and budget needs.

Schools

Classroom design and layouts with good acoustics help students understand what educators are teaching and allows students to have a better understanding of the lessons with fewer distractions.

Proper design and layout in a classroom environment will add acoustical wall panels or acoustical ceiling tiles to break up the hard wall and ceiling surfaces used in typical classroom environment.

Typically these rooms have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and tile which creates a need for sound absorption. Adding acoustical products will reduce ambient noise levels within the space.

Industry

Regardless of your business industry, we offer you a decisive way to increase your product visibility.

Figuring Your Acoustical Value

To figure the cubic volume of your space:
(Length x Width x Height) plus an extra 3%

Example:
If your space is 76’ length x 84’ width x 8’ high,
(76 x 84 x 8) x 1.03 = 1,532 sq ft. optimal acoustical treatments
