ARTNOVION ACOUSTIC TREATMENT - Wood Absorbers - Azteka
Designed and hand made in Portugal, Artnovion acoustic treatment is available in many forms including wooden and fabric designed absorbers, bass traps, and diffusers. Designed specifically for pro-audio in broadcast, recording, and post-production studios, these acoustic panels are available with furniture grade, or fire rated properties.
Furniture Grade (FG) models comply with standard fire resistance requirements set for the furniture industry, also known as the match/cigarette test which tests the surface flame spread index.
Fire Rated (FR+) models are when all exposed surfaces are fire rated to Euroclass B (EN 13501-1), meaning the base material is different and either fire rated fabric or MDF. The MDF used in fire rated products is 6/9mm as opposed to the standard 4mm of furniture grade. The coatings, either varnish or paint, are also fire rated to Euroclass B (EN 13501-1), however the FR+ has a standard acoustic core.
Artnovion offer a free project design service (https://artnovion.com/project-support-request) whereby you can upload room dimensions along with photographs and desired panel finishes and in return a 3D visualisation and/or acoustic calculation can be provided.
Note: If using the design service, please ensure you note Canford as your supplier within the comments section. This will ensure we can better provide support to the project in question.
Azteka W Corner, Azteka W Wall, and Azteka Doble W Wall bass traps are available to compliment the Azteka design.
Available in furniture grade (FG) or fire rated (FR+), this wooden acoustic absorption panel offers absorption from 315Hz to 3150Hz and has been designed to reduce standing waves, preventing them from filtering, and therefore ‘drastically improving speech clarity’.
Azteka W is available in a variety of colours and in either lacquered or wood veneer finishes.
Acoustic class: C. Absorption coef. (aw): 0.7(M). Dimensions (HxWxD): 595x595x58mm, FG models; 595x595x60mm, FR+ models.
The Azteka Doble W has the same acoustic properties as the Azteka W, however it is double the height and therefore could be more suited to users who wish to cover a larger space with fewer fixings.
Acoustic class: C. Absorption coef. (aw): 0.7(M). Dimensions (HxWxD): 1190x595x58mm, FG models; 1190x595x60mm, FR+ models.
Artnovion Azteka panels can be fixed to the wall using GlueArt glue or the FixArt Tube M6 fixing system. The 1170mm FixArt Tube is a plastic tube that can be used to attach the acoustic panel to a wall or ceiling. Where a length of 575mm is required, the 1170mm plastic tube can be cut. If mounting to the ceiling the user must also use the FixArt Tube Lock security device, which locks the panel in place and avoid failure due to ‘effects of temperature’.
