Made in a wide range of finishes, sizes and acoustic performance levels, designers get the look they want and achieve the necessary or specified acoustic performance. Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules are used in call centres, executive offices, boardrooms, places of worship, restaurants, auditoriums, class rooms, community centres, law courts, performing arts venues, home studios, home theatres, recording studios and mastering studios.
Used to reduce noise and control of reverberation in spaces of all sizes
Soundproofing and technical details
We recommend engaging an Acoustic Engineer to specify the acoustic performance requirements of your project. Ultrafonic assures the acoustic performance of our modules by testing in accordance with Australian standards: AS ISO 354-2006 Acoustics - Measurement of sound absorption in a reverberation room; AS ISO 11654-2002 Acoustics - Rating of sound absorption - Materials and systems.
Custom sizes can be specified. The maximum width of a module is typically 1200mm, constrained by the width of the fabric used; maximum height is typically 2400mm. The depth of the module depends on the required acoustic performance; a 50mm acoustic absorber is typical. The finished depth will be up to 15mm thicker than the acoustic element specified. Note that we manufacture to a finished size tolerance of +/- 2mm.
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules are assembled in Queensland and can be finished in a broad range of fabrics available from Australian suppliers. Modules may also be finished in custom prints, subject to copyright.
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules are quickly and easily installed on walls using our UltraLocate mounting rail (a low-profile, aluminium split-batten). Modules are factory-fitted with rails, typically at top and bottom, and supplied with matching rails that are to be fastened to the wall by the builder/installer. Installation involves positioning and fastening the rails to the walls, then lifting the module onto the rail. The UltraLocate system allows for the easy removal of modules for cleaning, repair, relocation or replacement. Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules can be installed on ceilings using various methods depending on what’s appropriate for the structure.
Use, Durability and Care
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules incorporate an impact resistant membrane under the fabric that make them suitably robust for commercial use; modules can be designed to meet the more rigorous needs of schools, sporting venues and public spaces; please specify use when ordering. Modules may by cared for in the same way as similar surfaces; e.g. fabric-covered modules can be cleaned using the same methods as used for fabric upholstery.
Fire Hazard Properties
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules are fabricated from components that achieve Group 2 under Building Code of Australia Specification C1.10a Fire Hazard Properties: Wall and Ceiling Linings/Coverings. If a Group 1 product is required, please ask us about available alternatives.
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules can be fabricated for use in physically demanding spaces such as indoor sports venues, gymnasiums, and high-traffic corridors. They can also be supplied with a durable antimicrobial treatment desirable in health and aged care facilities.
Ultrafonic Acoustic Modules are non-toxic and safe to handle without protective clothing or respiration apparatus
Good acoustics can go hand in hand with a desirable "look' and finish.
Ultrafonic works with the architect and the acoustic engineer from concept to specification to achieve both the visual and the acoustic results, required for their project.
We have the technical expertise and experience to design, fabricate and test acoustic absorbers and diffusers made from a large selection of materials ranging from perforated metal and timber through to fabrics and vinyls.
We provide architects with the flexibility to create visually appealing interiors for their clients without compromising acoustic performance.
At the same time, we provide acoustic engineers with the means and the assurance to achieve the necessary acoustic outcomes without compromising the visual aesthetic.
Please ask us about our Architectural Acoustic Modules if you have a challenging project requiring acoustic treatment with a distinct or unique visual finish.
The residents and my staff tell me it has done a remarkable job with the acoustics in there (retirement village manager)
