Primacoustic recently announced Paintables™ Clouds – a new series of high
performance acoustic panels you can paint – are now shipping.
Primacoustic’s Jay Porter: “The series features three different shapes of absorptive
acoustic panels that can be used as ceiling clouds, baffles or wall panels to reduce
excess reverberation and improve intelligibility. The unique shapes and sizes open
the door for architects, designers and installers with creative solutions that are
bold, yet architecturally pleasing.”
The new Paintables™ clouds include the circular Cirrus™, the hexagonal Hexus™
and the square Altos™. Each panel is made from 1-1/2″ thick high density 6lb glass
wool for exceptionally even absorption and feature resin hardened edges with
micromesh that together fully encapsulate the panel to prevent dusting. Paintables
are factory painted on all sides in Absolute White™ latex and ready for mounting.
Unique to their design is a proprietary surface than enables one to lightly spray
paint the panels on-site to colour-match the decor without affecting the acoustical
Paintables clouds are the ideal sound abatement solution for any space where
communication is vital and acoustic treatment must integrate with the aesthetics of
the room: houses of worship, conference centres, restaurants, offices, boardrooms,
educational facilities, community halls, hotel auditoriums, broadcast facilities,
museums, retail, home theatres, recording studios, gymnasiums and performance
Installation is easy. For larger spaces, a selection of hanging hardware allows the
Paintable Clouds to be suspended horizontally or vertically from the ceiling,
absorbing energy on both sides for maximum efficiency. The same panels may be
wall-mounted using our proprietary Surface Impaler™ technology to create a
distinctive wall treatment.
The Cirrus, Hexus and Altos are available in 36″ and 48″ diameters. As with all
Primacoustic panels, Paintables have been independently tested for acoustic
performance and fire-tested to achieve the most stringent Class-A ratings. This
makes them safe for use in all types of installations.
