The original version, Soft Cells typically delivers Class-C acoustic performance. In doing so, they rely on two layers of tensioned textile. Well suited for team-oriented open areas, they offer strong acoustic performance in the important frequency area of speech intelligibility.
Soft Cells deliver broadband conditioning in all relevant octaves between 200-4000 Hertz. This specification allows planners and acoustics experts to precisely tailor the number and placement of the panels to the local acoustic parameters of the interior in question.
The acoustic performance is identical when installing Soft Cells to the ceiling or walls using the magnet components and creating a finished surface 55mm from the structural element.
