Gerriets Unveils Flame Retardant Absorber CS for Optimal Sound Absorption

absorber-cs-pressefoto-1.jpgGerriets has expanded its line of acoustic materials to include an innovative new sound-absorbing textile, “Absorber CS.” Gerriets developed the material in close consultation with musicians, theater consultants, and an acoustic testing institute.

ABSORBER CS was created in direct response to requests from acoustic consultants looking for the sound absorption of wool serge in an inherently flame retardant, dimensionally stable textile. Approximately 12 months of research and development were devoted to producing this unique material.

A complex fabrication process achieves a random weave pattern that closely matches the acoustic properties of wool serge.

ABSORBER CS is made from 100% Trevira CS and meets the following flame retardant standards: DIN 4102 B1, NFPA 701, California title 19, and City of New York. It is available in standard black as well as custom colors in quantities of 200 m (220 yd) or more.

Certified to sound absorption class C (“highly absorbent”), ABSORBER CS is the perfect solution for a wide range of applications. ABSORBER CS curtains are ideal for concert halls, theaters, opera houses, conference rooms, and sound studios.
