The Hydro acoustic absorption panel is a product specifically designed for those testing environments where noise reverberation is offer at its worst: swimming pools, commercial kitchens, clinics, gyms and so on, wherever those hard acoustically reflective interior surfaces dominate. The need for cleanliness and hygiene control dictates the makeup of many environments, and moisture in the atmosphere – certainly in the case of swimming pools! – is a common feature. The Hydro, as its name suggests, is moisture tolerant acoustic absorber designed as a hygienic solution to the problems in these environments.
Like the Sonata Rhino and most of our other products, the Hydro offers first rate Class A certified acoustic performance – and with Class O fire rating as standard.
The Hydro body comprises a tough performance metal body finished in durable polyester powder-coated finish to any RAL colour. The sound absorption core is again our technical acoustic foam – though with the neat innovation as a “cassette”, fully removable, and replaceable if ever required), to aid routine cleaning maintenance.
Installation of the Hydro is simple: for fixing to the underside of ceilings – the most commonly preferred method – the Hydro suspension pack (HSP) fixings are used; for wall-mounting the Hydro wall mounting brackets offer secure mounting. Both methods allow easy removal of the panels for access, cleaning or re-decoration of background.
