Primacoustic 1” Broadway Acoustic Panels Now Feature Bevelled Edge

After hearing clients prefer a bevelled edge over a square edge, Primacoustic is now offering its 1-inch Broadway acoustical panels with a bevelled edge.

Responding to client requests, Primacoustic replaced the square-edge finish on its 1-inch Broadway acoustic panels with a bevelled edge to improve its appearance in residential and commercial spaces.

Acoustical treatments are a great way to address sound problems in homes and commercial spaces. With more people discovering the benefits of quality room acoustics, manufacturers like Primacoustic are stepping up the commitment to aesthetics, making acoustic panels easier to sell.

Primacoustic now offers its 1-inch Broadway panels with a bevelled edge, replacing the square-edge finish it previously offered. Primacoustic will continue to offer its thicker 2- and 3-inch panels in a choice of square or bevelled edge finishes.

“Over the past 10 years, the feedback we have received is that clients prefer the look and feel of a bevelled edge panel over a traditional square edge,” says Jay Porter, product specialist, Primacoustic. “Bevel edged panels convey a cleaner, more finished look that seems to enhance the decor in a much more natural and artistic way. The same sentiment is echoed by many designers and architects; engineers will be pleased to hear that the new design delivers the same market-leading performance that they have come to expect from Primacoustic.”

Primacoustic says all Broadway panels are made from 6lb per-cubic-foot glass wool for balanced absorption throughout the audio listening range, and each panel is fully encapsulated with micromesh and resin-hardened edges to help ensure safe handling during their installation.

Primacoustic also says the panels are covered in acoustically-transparent fabrics and offered in a choice of three colors. In addition, the products are laboratory tested for acoustic performance and Class-A/I fire safety to meet ASTM-E84 and Can-UL S102 standards for flame spread and smoke development in residential and commercial environments that include government buildings and schools.
