translucent acoustics

Annette Douglas wins 'Red Dot' Best of the Best Award for translucent, fire retardant acoustic curtain fabrics. The curtain fabrics, developed and designed by Annette Douglas, exclusive to eurowalls™ are presented in the Formoza, Marmara and Carmen collections. Douglas’ special ability lies in her twin competence. As a designer she can draw upon her sensitivity to the subtleties of colour, shape and materials.

Her technical expertise and understanding ensure that her ideas and designs actually work in practice. This combination culminated in the development of a world first in acoustic solution, now with an international patent. The curtain fabrics improve the room's acoustics and are translucent, fire safe (100% flame retardant polyester), durable, lightweight and extremely strong – a combination previously unavailable for modern architecture.

Offering a sound absorption coefficient, alphaw, of between 0.5 and 0.6, the use of these curtain fabrics reduces echoes, absorbs sound and improves understandability in project surroundings such as office areas, conference rooms, restaurants, hotel lobbies and multifunctional halls.
