ANAHEIM, CA, JUNE 4, 2007 — Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, announces that its SpaceArray™ Diffusor has recently passed the requirements of a “Class B” fire-rating. Unique in the industry for a wood diffusor product, the SpaceArray continues to deliver superior performance at a popular price point. The newly rated SpaceArray will be showcased at InfoComm 2007, booth #9430.
Auralex’s SpaceArray has successfully passed testing in accordance with ASTM E84, a standard test for surface burning characteristics of building materials. The test calculates both flame spread and smoke densities. Additionally, the SpaceArray has recently passed acoustical testing in accordance with ISO 17497-1, a standard test method for sound scattering and sound scattering coefficients.
Designed by Russ Berger for Auralex Acoustics, the SpaceArray combines excellent hemispherical acoustical diffusion with a top quality wood finish. Based on a quasi-random series that provides superior performance without visual patterning, the SpaceArray is ideal for control rooms, auditoriums, performance venues, listening rooms, home theaters and worship spaces. Strong and lightweight, the beautiful 24″x24″ solid paulownia wood panels install easily and can be used in a variety of placement options.
“We are proud to be able to offer a Class B fire-rated wood acoustical treatment product for applications having a more stringent fire-code requirement,” says Tracy Chandler, director of worldwide sales for Auralex. “While aesthetics are critical in the products we create, so too are safety and durability. Having successfully passed the fire-rating and acoustical tests enables Auralex to maintain its position as the industry’s leading sound control solution provider.”
The SpaceArray is one of the first offerings in the new pArtScience product line, a family of acoustical treatments designed for exceptional performance with a custom look, all at an affordable price.
