Get the acoustics under control

Parafon Buller is installed in the large industrial hall so that the industrial design and feeling is preserved and highlighted. Parafon Buller is an effective sound absorber with class A absorption It is available in many different designs, thicknesses, sizes and colors. Here, the architect has chosen a gray color like colored concrete.

Parafon Buller is applied in a wide range of uses in industrial environments or where efficient fireproof sound absorption wants to be achieved. The good fire properties of stone wool - which means that it stays dimensionally stable even in very high temperatures - and climate properties as well as the sound absorption make it extra suitable for harsh environments such as industrial premises, warehouses, sports facilities, parking garages and the like.

Gray Paraffin Step in the entrance

In the entrance, the innovative product Parafon Step has been installed. Parafon Step is an acoustic concept where the customer can decide the design and color. A combination of different thicknesses and formats means that you get a dynamic and unique acoustic ceiling. In this case, the architect has chosen boards in the format 300x600 mm and the thicknesses 18, 25 and 40 mm in the color NCS S 5502-B.
