Transparent Acoustic Panels

The pursuit of transparency must not contradict room acoustics. Design composites translucent thermoplastic AIR-board® acoustic panels can be efficiently, visually sophisticatedly and simply integrated into internal building designs. The translucent elements not only convince with noticeably improved room acoustics (reduced reverberation time and thus increased speech intelligibility) but also by their low weight, the many design possibilities and the ease of assembly.

The translucent sandwich elements consist of a transparent or coloured honeycomb core with micro-perforated facing sheets giving a high degree sound absorbance and impress with their unique optics and functionality. Whether stand-alone screens, coverage on or as a wall, suspended in the room or integrated in the furniture, as space-defining structure or as a mobile workspace enclosure, the elements are flexible and can be individually adapted to the respective room concept.

Translucency and light scattering effects enhance the unique properties such as fire resistance (UV PC difficult to ignite), light weight and high rigidity. Illuminated or backlit, creating interesting lighting effects through the transparent honeycomb core structure of the panels.


The panels with translucent honeycomb cores and UV-stable perforated facing sheets with a light transmissivity up to 60% are mainly used as a decorative acoustic panel.

3D effect

The panel`s special effect are mainly from light scattering and light absorption, backlighting, integration of lights and other decorative materials.


Numerous possibilities in the individual design of the architectural panels regarding colour, surface, core, shape and special effects. Printed panels are also possible as well as shaping or special edge banding and installation ready systems

Application examples of the acoustic panels

AIR-board<sup>®</sup> acoustic

AIR-board® acoustic

The AIR-board® honeycomb cores are available in different cell sizes, structures and colours. Laminating the cores with micro-perforated facing sheets creates acoustic panels with extraordinary properties and visually impressive effects.

The panels are available with 3 different cores:

AIR-board® acoustic standard: 7 mm cell diameter
AIR-board® acoustic big: 12 mm cell diameter
AIR-board® acoustic chaos: 4, 7 und 12 mm cell diameter

Dim. 2.500 x 1.200 x 19 oder 25 mm

Favourite applications: ceilings, furniture, walls & partitions, lighting concepts, desk dividers,…

In addition to the optically sophisticated products, service and easy installation are paramount. The straightforward assembly systems and development of individual solutions allow us to deliver practical solutions to the doorstep of the customer. Designers and builders, especially in the architectural field, benefit from a wide range of panels with different cores and outer layers. Partitions, doors, privacy screens or acoustic panels are available together with frames as a system solution.
