GIK Acoustics 242 Acoustic Panels are ideal for 2-channel listening rooms, as well as for recording studios, restaurants, home cinema’s and sanctuaries. The GIK Acoustics 242 Acoustic Panels are 67mm thick and are wall or ceiling mountable.
The 242 Acoustic Panels are versatile for sound absorption and are used to reduce noise in environments where sound clarity is important. The GIK Acoustics 242 acoustic panels are an excellent choice for early reflection points, flutter echo, or general decay in a room. Every room has it’s own size and shape, so we have created 3 basic shapes for 242 panels, as well as custom sizes to fit your space.
The acoustic panel’s properties come from the core, which is made from 100% recycled materials that include no formaldehyde or urea formaldehyde.
The GIK Acoustics 242 Acoustic Panel is a professionally constructed velocity absorber with a rigid core and is a broadband panel in nature – meaning they deal with the entire frequency range. 242 Acoustic Panels are made with GIK’s patented two-frame system allowing sound to be absorbed from the sides while maintaining a crisp, sharp edge. The 242 Acoustic Panel has a built-in air gap which not only increases low end absorption, but allows the panel to hang truly flush on the wall using an integrated wire on the back. Other acoustic panels are constructed as mere fabric wrapped over rigid fiberglass or a wooden frame which does not allow the proper space between the absorption materials and the wall and makes it nearly impossible to truly flush-mount.
Mount at the primary and secondary reflection points on the walls
Open back not only allows absorption of lower frequencies with an air gap, but also to allow the panel to sit flush against the wall.
