Soft Cells Lowtone panels have a specially developed glass textile membrane behind a tensioned front fabric layer, and deliver excellent acoustic performance in the low and mid range frequencies – from 125 Hz upwards.
Soft Cells Lowtone is particularly well suited to small rooms less than 90 m3, spaces with special acoustic requirements, such as music practice rooms, rooms with hard ceilings, walls and surfaces and brainstorming and meeting areas where there may be loud and overlapping discussions
As with other Soft Cells versions, Soft Cells Lowtone has been developed with the environment in mind and incorporate as much recycled material as possible, and can be used to gain various LEED credits.
In addition, Soft Cells Lowtone complies with a number of fire codes including EN13501-1:2007.
At a glance
Suitable for use as a building component or for post-fitting
Can be manufactured in large sizes
Easy to mount on walls and ceilings – at any angle
Can easily be taken down, reassembled and reupholstered to meet changing requirements
Designed with the environment in mind, the panels incorporate recycled materials and can be used to gain LEED credits
The patented aluminium frame has a hidden tensioning mechanism, which ensures that the covering textile stays perfectly taut
Thanks to the tensioning mechanism, the textile covering is unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity
Soft Cells Lowtone comply with a number of fire codes including EN13501-1:2007
Like all types of Soft Cells panels, Lowtone has been developed in close cooperation with architects
