Acoustic Backing & Sound Installation

Acoustic backing panels can be 12mm (0.40 NRC) and 25mm (0.60 NRC) and are incorporated into the system for great NRC performance. They also reduce costs as they can replace the need for alternative wall & ceiling lining.

The acoustic panels have a Group 1 (Aus) and Group 1S (NZ)  fire rating and are available in the range of colours shown.

Alternatively, acoustic blanket is recommended for achieving up to 0.95 NRC

Wall Batten Installation

Panel Frame fix - straight wall (acoustic integration)

The Zenthe panel frame is horizontally screw fixed onto timber or steel framing at 450mm to 600mm centres then the 12mm acoustic backing is slid into place between the panel frames. The Zenthe batten connector is then screw fixed onto the panel frame at the desired spacing and the Zenthe batten infill is screw fixed into the back of the rebated feature batten and simply clicked into place. A very quick and simple installation.
