Auralex® Acoustics, Inc. has unveiled its UtiliTek sound absorbers. Designed based on input from leading contractors and system integrators, the UtiliTek panels are similar in function, performance and design to Auralex's ProPanel series, but at an even more attractive price point that they tell us still yields top-notch aesthetics and performance. UtiliTek panels are fabric covered, acoustically absorptive panels designed to reduce unwanted room reflections and reverberation, providing a more accurate and articulate listening experience. Auralex says that UtiliTek panels are highly effective and lightweight, are composed of Class A fire-rated materials and feature a recycled absorbent core.
UtiliTek is available in four thicknesses and two edge profiles. The beveled-edge style is available in 2'x2'x1", 2'x4'x1" and 2'x4'x2" sizes. Auralex believes that the square-edge style, available in a 2'x4'x3" size, is perfect for corner mounting between two walls or across wall/ceiling junctures for moderate low-frequency control.
Eric Smith, Auralex Founder and President, told Sonic State, "As part of our ongoing commitment to the sound contracting/fixed installation market sectors, we wanted to offer solutions for contractors working with the tighter budgets that are common in today's economy. UtiliTek panels can be employed in a wide variety of installations, including clubs, live performance venues, restaurants/bars, houses of worship, corporate, municipal and residential installations."
