FabriTRAK® Systems Inc today launched Autem™– a unique sound control acoustic solution for ceilings. Autem™ is a lightweight, easy-to-install polyester product available in 2″ and 1″ thicknesses in black, white and gray. The company states Autem™ offer NRC ratings (2″ NRC .90) and provides high R ratings for insulation. Autem™ is highly durable, requires no maintenance and is 100% recyclable, according to FabriTRAK® Systems Inc.
Lou D’Angelo, FabriTRAK® President & CEO stated: “We have worked hard to expand our ‘green’ product line by offering more LEED approved acoustic products.” Autem™ is made of 80% post-consumer recycled material and manufactured without the use of water. The product is also DECLARE certified.
Lou explained that “Autem™ is engineered for interior sound control – whether the space is a large industrial warehouse, a school gymnasium or a corporate meeting space.” Autem™ works by absorbing noise and mitigating sound reverberation – ensuring sound quality is crisp and safe on hearing. He also stated that FabriTRAK® worked to ensure the product is safe to install – unlike fiberglass which requires special installation equipment, Autem™ is safe to touch, breathe and is non-allergenic and non-irritating. Autem™ is also free of all VOCs.
“This product is entering the market at the right time”, said Marco Sarlui, Product Manager at FabriTRAK®. “After discussions with architects and interior designers, we have found that many in the interiors industry are looking for high quality, aesthetic acoustic solutions, and Autem™ fills the need – it is as economical as it is effective in noise control.” He also went on to state that since Autem™ is so easy to install – either direct-apply with adhesive or cut to fit in a drop ceiling – many spaces can benefit from its application, from new construction or renovations.
