Interior Acoustical Panels

 

Tectum Cloud Panels deliver design flexibility and acoustical performance in areas where a grid is not practical and superior noise control is needed. Tectum clouds are designed for a floating system with no visible suspension. Cloud panels can be easily field fabricated into custom shapes.

Tectum Cloud Panels deliver design flexibility and acoustical performance in areas where a grid is not practical and superior noise control is needed. Tectum clouds are designed for a floating system with no visible suspension. Cloud panels can be easily field fabricated into custom shapes as shown in the photograph to the right. Radius corner clouds are available in 1 1 ⁄ 2 ” and 2” thicknesses with widths of 23 3 ⁄ 4 ” and 47 3 ⁄ 4 ”. Lengths of up to 47 3 ⁄ 4 ” are available. Square corner clouds are available in 1 1 ⁄ 2 ” and 2” thicknesses with widths of 23 3 ⁄ 4 ” and 47 3 ⁄ 4 ”. Lengths of up to 96” are available. Edges can be beveled or square.

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION

The wood fibers (excelsior) used in Tectum panels come from Wisconsin Aspen trees. The Wisconsin Aspen is a self-propagating type tree. When cut, a new tree will begin to grow back from its root structure. In addition, all Wisconsin Aspen used for Tectum is air-dried. No drying kilns are used. The wood is stored in ranks to age naturally. No chemicals are used in the production of any excelsior purchased by Tectum Inc. All excelsior used in Tectum products comes from a single source that is affiliated with both the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiatives (SFI) programs. These programs are a comprehensive system of objectives and performance measures that integrate the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water quality. All loggers are trained to adhere to FSC and SFI principles. Magnesium oxide is mixed with magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts) to form the primary binder. The magnesium sulfate solution has been manufactured on site by reclaiming waste materials since production began in 1949. The secondary binder is composed of sodium silicate and calcium carbonate (limestone). All of the water used in the manufacture of Tectum is captured and recycled.
