Open plan workspaces and glass meeting rooms are becoming the norm in the workplace these days. They encourage collaboration, innovation and they look great. However, the downside is the disruption from poor acoustic quality.
We have all experienced acoustic “reverberation” or echo in large open plan spaces or enclosed meeting spaces with hard surfaces. It is very disruptive to productivity and makes it difficult to concentrate.
In the past, resolving this problem was shrouded in mystery, expensive & required the over complicated appliance of science - well not any more.
Caimi Brevetti, world leaders in the design and manufacture of ingenious office work tools, have developed a totally revolutionary and effective solution that is beautifully simple in its design and can be placed anywhere and look great.
The Caimi solution uses a totally new and patented technology called “Snowsound” that they have developed in conjunction with a leading Italian University. The technology uses a single material, Polyester, which in addition to its excellent sound absorption qualities is 100% recyclable. This innovative technological breakthrough is housed in a clean and simple panel that was designed by the world renowned product designer Michele De Lucchi whose other credits include the Artemide, Tolomeo lighting range.
As Caimi’s exclusive partner in the UK, Lesco are delighted to be able to offer this exciting new product to the market. Hearing really is believing with MITESCO. It is brilliantly simple, practical and cost effective. To hear the difference for yourself, please contact us for a simple demonstration, our team will be delighted to come and demonstrate MITESCO to you.
ACOUSTIC control with SNOWSOUND technology:
Like all technology a simple explanation and simple application is what is needed. The properties of the Lesco panel is such that it can be utilised in many applications by virtue of its light weight, efficient performance, choice of colour and mounting variations. The correct evaluation of requirement can be calculated after on sight measurements and materials inventory via the special software accessible on line. A site visit by us can be arranged to record this information or the professional acoustic engineer can access our software by the website entry code (please contact us). In its simplest form we can arrange a visit with sample panels to demonstrate and measure the optimum panel area required.
Background noise and resonance or echo, are all areas where sound absorption is required to provide a workable or comfortable interior. This applies to many modern buildings that are short on soft furnishing and carpet and high on hard surfaces like glass, stainless steel and cement. In effect large surfaces that reflect sound rather than absorb it. This applies to Offices, Halls, Theatres, University lecture halls, theatres, Stairwells, Entrance Atriums and the like. This is not to mention Recording Studios, Restaurants, Shopping Centres and Shops presenting a whole plethora of opportunity for a simple, yet cost effective system that can be retro fitted into an existing building or designed into a new build by the architect.
MITESCO uses the new Snowsound technology by using a new material that has highly efficient properties and the advantage of light thin panels with an easily cleaned visible surface based on the flame retardant Trevira fabric. By using Polyester fabric which can be heat bonded to the Polyester cored panel a perfect bond between covering and acoustic material is made.
Complete technical data is available together with a link to the server providing a formula to enter the parameters of the space to be attenuated and calculate the surface area required. This will aid the architect or acoustic engineer who may wish to make these calculations for themselves. We will also provide this service to the trade in order to satisfy your clients by providing the solution.
We will go to site and measure with you to ascertain the materials and areas involved. Do ask for more information and assistance as the need arises. We can provide a ready-made presentation to present to your client or your staff to get the message over.
We hope this enables you to use Lesco more confidently to provide good solutions.
