CANFORD STUDIO ACOUSTIC TABLES
A range of purpose built tables for use in radio and production studios. The standard shapes are circular 1220mm diameter, hexagonal 1220mm across flats and rectangular 1530 x 740mm. Standard height is 760mm. The top is acoustically absorbent, and is faced with a hardwearing fabric which is flameproof to BS5852 (parts 1 & 2). The standard fabric colour is brown (as originally specified by the BBC), but a wide range of custom colours are available to order. A fabric colour chart, for illustration purposes, is available within the Product Resources area. The main frame, legs and edges are all polished ash and the legs are detachable. A circular hole is provided in the centre of circular and hexagonal tables for cables and microphone stands. The absorbent surface helps reduce the unwanted pickup of reflected sound by the back end of microphones – an effect which leads to colouration. The fabric surface also keeps to a minimum noises from pens, glasses etc.
Tables are available with 3-pole 1/4″ (6.35mm) frame type jack sockets (which accept both A and B gauge jacks) fitted. Circular tables are available either with no jacks, or nine jacks (unwired) in the underframe, one at one end and two at the other, on each of the three underframe rails. Hexagonal types are available either with no jacks or a single jack fitted to each top edge face, these are wired in parallel connected to an XLR 3 pin female connector mounted centrally underneath for headphone input. Rectangular tables as standard have either no jacks, or two (unwired) at the right hand end of each long side.
These are craftsman built, sturdy, well finished products that will do justice to any studio installation. Introduced in 1979 as Canford’s first designed and manufactured product, a considerable number are in use throughout the BBC, independent radio, ITV and independent production studios.
