SoftZone Panels

Horizontal and vertical solutions

  • Available in horizontal (Stencil SoftZone) and vertical (Sculpt SoftZone) forms
  • Panels made of 100% polyester containing at least 40% of recycled PET plastic
  • Functional flexibility: Unlit SoftZone panels can be used for sound attenuation only
  • Facilitates building system integration (sprinklers, speakers, etc.)
  • Class A fire rated and moisture resistant
  • Per-unit Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC): up to 1.05

The more sound absorption you need,
the more SoftZone panels you use in the space.

Different surfaces have different sound-absorbing properties. Porous matter, such as carpeting, wood and the material used for SoftZone, are very effective at absorbing sound. In comparison, hard and smooth surfaces, such as concrete, plate glass and metal, reflect acoustic energy and create reverberation that SoftZone panels help to absorb.
