Thursday, August 15th, 2013  | posted by

The school classroom environment now has a brand new acoustic ceiling system ready at their grasp. Ecophon have launched this new product that sets a new benchmark for efficiency, durability and performance. the product known as Master Rigid will change the way teachers and students interact in the classroom.

Master rigid has been developed for this specific role as school are in high demand for acoustic solutions. The master rigid will provide the best acoustic solution for the school everyday requirements in terms of sound and hearing.

The new reinforced Akutex FT surface, has proven to be ten times stronger than Ecophon’s original Akutex FT. This also comes with the benefit of the tiles being securely installed as well as being easily taken apart when needed.

Master Rigid uses 70% recycled glass wool with a plant based binder. This is instead of the normal petroleum-based binder, which helps reduce the environmental impact. This shows Ecophon’s 3RD technology at is best.

“Put simply, the best acoustic ceiling system for the classroom is now ‘kid-proof’,” a statement by Shane Cryer the Concept Developer for Education at Ecophon.

“The system will play a key role in promoting excellent speech communication between teacher and student without the need for teachers to strain their voices, leading to a reduction in physical and mental stress.”

The lower the reverberation time, reduced sound pressure levels and low frequency bass absorption the more comfortable a classroom can be for both teachers and students.

The UK has 33,000 hearing impaired students in the education mainstream, therefore this product is especially beneficial to them along with all students.

“Optimised acoustic classrooms also assist with learning, concentration and memory,” says Shane. “Master Rigid’s excellent durability means it is ideally suited to the classroom environment where impact and tampering from below are very real possibilities in some UK schools. In turn, this also helps to reduce wear and tear, increasing the life-span of the ceiling, which helps reduce costs. In fact, it had not previously been possible to offer this level of impact resistance without compromising on aesthetics, but Master Rigid meets stringent acoustic standards while still giving a high end finish.”

In summary the new Master Rigid is ready to set the highest standards for acoustic improvements in the education system. Both students and teachers will be able to share acoustic benefits together.

Sevenoaks Rugby Club in Kent contacted ReSpace Acoustics for a complete survey, assessment, design and installation acoustic treatment solution for their Rugby Club.

Respace Acoustics achieved the perfect sound sonic environment with a lowered reverberation time in these areas using a combination of  acoustic products. In this installation it was an acoustic ceiling board.

Respace Acoustics were contacted by The LookOut for an acoustic solution to their multi-purpose function room located in Hyde Park.


The LookOut is inspired by its natural surroundings, the roof represents the curve of a tree canopy. The building was made with sustainability in mind, it’s use of its natural resources is remarkable, while it also keeps its environmental impact to a minimum and encourages biodiversity.


The function room, however, had extremely bad acoustics due to a high reverberation time which caused an uncomfortable environment for customers who privately hired this space.

Acoustic Ceiling Panels


Respace Acoustics provided a bespoke acoustic solution by installing bespoke custom fabric ceiling rafts and bespoke acoustic panels. These products reduced the reverberation time making the room sound sonic and acoustically benefited.

Bespoke Acoustic Panels


Alongside the bespoke acoustic solution, the panels were also custom made complimenting the rooms natural/nature based appeal, while also adding splashes of colour and design.

The complete installation was a success. Respace Acoustics exceeded the customers acoustic requirements and created a room that all private functions can use comfortably.



Cisco Telepresence | Complete Room Build
Wednesday, May 04th, 2011  | posted by

Cisco’s TelePresence a room build project was awarded to ReSpace by global food & drink producers PepsiCo. The Cisco room build guidelines are strict, this project was managed by ReSpace from design to completion.


ReSpace found that the room acoustics were as important as any other build element while undertaking this project. Precision, quality and strict guidelines are invaluable in order to create this kind of successful TelePresence fit-out room build.


Completed TelePresence Room


All rooms must be built to the exact same size and specification even the paint colour must match. The idea is that you feel you are in the same room as somebody who could be the other side of Earth.


Big companies with a global presence use virtual meeting facilitiessuch as Cisco TelePresence systems. This allows them to have virtual meetings with staff, customers and suppliers anywhere in the world without unnecessary environmental and financial cost of travel. The cost of the equipment and the required room build is significant and the manufacturers insist that the strict room build guidelines are adhered to and ensuring that the client gets the most from the system. Good quality acoustics are imperative for the users experience.


With some scope allowed to enhance the Cisco build guidelines we developed an acoustic solution which provided the perfect acoustic environment for these facilities. The ceiling is out of shot from the cameras so we introduced a sound absorbing floating acoustic ceiling called Ecophon Wing, with Focus Ds concealed grid ceiling tiles. This created a flag-ship feel to the room and also allowed us to introduce feature LED lighting the perimeter and DOT indirect modular fittings into the raft.

To the walls we applied Class A sound absorbing acoustic panels by Ecophon. The wall panel C system finished with glass fibre Texona fabric in light beige was a perfect match TelePresence installations already in the US.

Before the equipment can be shipped for installation the newly built room must pass a Cisco CTX inspection test, which includes lighting lux levels and acoustics it was clear that this solution provided both with flying coloursmeaning there is always two wows, one for the equipment and one for the room.


The installation was a success with complete customer satisfaction.
