Sound better with Autem®, by FabriTRAK Systems Inc.
FabriTRAK Systems Inc today launched Autem®– a unique sound control acoustic solution for ceilings. Autem® is a lightweight, easy-to-install polyester product available in 2” and 1” thicknesses in black, white and gray. Not only does Autem® offer impressive NRC ratings (2” NRC .90) – higher than many ceiling tiles on the market – Autem® also provides high R ratings for insulation. Autem® is highly durable, requires no maintenance and is 100% recyclable.
Lou D’Angelo, FabriTRAK President & CEO stated: “We have worked hard to expand our ‘green’ product line by offering more LEED approved acoustic products.” Autem® is made of 80% post-consumer recycled material and manufactured without the use of water. The product is also DECLARE certified.
Lou explained that “Autem® is engineered for interior sound control – whether the space is a large industrial warehouse, a school gymnasium or a corporate meeting space.” Autem® works by absorbing noise and mitigating sound reverberation – ensuring sound quality is crisp and safe on hearing. He also stated that FabriTRAK worked to ensure the product is safe to install – unlike fiberglass which requires special installation equipment, Autem® is safe to touch, breathe and is non-allergenic and non-irritating. Autem® is also free of all VOCs.
“This product is entering the market at the right time”, said Marco Sarlui, Product Manager at FabriTRAK. “After discussions with architects and interior designers, we have found that many in the interiors industry are looking for high quality, aesthetic acoustic solutions, and Autem® fills the need – it is as economical as it is effective in noise control.” He also went on to state that since Autem® is so easy to install – either direct-apply with adhesive or cut to fit in a drop ceiling – many spaces can benefit from its application, from new construction or renovations.
