Auralex Acoustics will debut a gallery of custom-printed acoustical panels at this year’s Winter NAMM show (Booth 6794, Hall A). New Auralex SonicPrints are custom-printed, artistic panels from the company’s ProPanel product line that feature “The Art of Sound” theme to bring design and style options for any room.
SonicPrint custom-printed, artistic ProPanels are fabric-covered acoustic absorptive panels designed as artwork. Users are no longer limited to single color fabric choices, and can now outfit any space with paintings and drawings of any kind.
SonicPrint is also available for Auralex’s ELiTE Custom Fabric System (CFS), a full-room treatment approach that blends an engineered acoustical environment with an elegant finished appearance.
In recent weeks, Auralex has signed numerous licensing agreements to expand its offering of high impact brands and images, including Hallmark Licensing, Inc., Studio Canal and several independent artists, ranging from local to national painters and sketchers to photographers.
“SonicPrint was the next natural step for Auralex,” says Tim Martin, director of sales and marketing for Auralex Acoustics. “We recognized a void in the home recording and home theater markets, as acoustical treatments were limited to single color fabrics.”
Auralex Acoustics’ new dedicated micro-site, www.auralex.com/sonicprint, is an online portal and direct way for dealers to place orders for SonicPrint custom ProPanels.
Users can upload their own personal photography, corporate logos or other custom images to be printed on the SonicPrint acoustical panels, and the site also offers Auralex’s entire library of images and design options available for SonicPrint.
The gallery is divided into several categories for easy browsing and convenient ordering. Categories include artistic/textures, aquatic/animals, children, cultural, flowers/nature, food/beverage, historic/vintage, humor, independent artists, performing arts, motivational, movies, music, scenic and sports.
In addition, the site features the Auralex Free Room Analysis Form, an installation guide and design and application ideas.
Auralex ELiTE ProPanels are designed to reduce unwanted room reflections, slap and flutter echoes and provide a more pleasing and accurate listening environment. All ProPanels meet the Class A fire rating per ASTM E84, used in areas with strict fire codes. Standard wall-mounting hardware is included with all orders for easy installation.
Custom ProPanels are available in any size up to 5′ x 10′ with a thickness of either 3/4”, 1”, 2” or 4”. Beyond standard rectangular panels, custom shapes, corners or edging can be created.
Auralex’s ELiTE Custom Fabric System (ELiTE-CFS) is a full-room treatment approach that blends an engineered acoustical environment with an elegant finished appearance. This proprietary acoustical treatment system utilizes a patented retention channel and custom installation process, and offers a combination of absorption, diffusion, reflection, and bass trapping with all the acoustical materials hidden behind the system’s smooth stretched-fabric surface.
