Hollow Chambers in Acoustic Tile Absorb More Sound

Turf Design is exploring the next level of acoustic innovation and construction with its latest tile introduction: Hex. Hex harnesses TURF’s PET felt, creating a range of 3D folds that form hollow chambers—a structural component that increases its already impressive sound absorption. By thinking beyond the traditional, flat tile, Hex offers a powerful solution benefiting commercial spaces of all types.

The need for collaborative environments in public spaces and workplaces will be paramount as we emerge from the pandemic. Folded tile solutions like Hex and the previously launched Reed will help make any space viable for meetings and conversations, while helping occupants avoid the ‘sound shock’ that might come with a return to public life.

Each hexagonal tile merges four triangles of TURF felt and sculpts them into a convex, multidimensional form with a height of 13.5 inches, width of 11.69 inches and depth of 2.25 inches. The central triangle can be positioned in a multitude of arrays and directions, and Hex complements TURF’s popular Hive collection. The dimensions and folds of the tile enable it to reach a high-performing NRC (noise reduction coefficient) of .9.

Hex is available in 8 TURF Textures—a digitally printed wood design with virtually no repeat—and a range of 30 colors, from neutral to bold.
