Focal Point is addressing needs beyond lighting with Seem 1 Acoustic. The luminaire and baffle system, part of its Acoustics Solutions program, is intended to improve human comfort and resolve some of the challenges in commercial environments. The integrated system is designed to simplify the specification, sourcing and installation process while procuring a unified look that enhances interior architecture.
Seem 1 Acoustic is a linear luminaire and baffle system design on the Seem 1 platform using a sound absorbing housing material. The system leverages the advanced light engine, narrow aperture, and various lumen outputs of Seem 1 while delivering a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 1.05. The system uses patent- pending AirCore technology to maximize sound absorption.
A housing material made of 100 percent polyester containing up to 50 percent of recycled plastic bottles (PET) contributes to reducing its ecological impact and provides an ASTM E-84 Class A firing rating. The system can be specified with direct, indirect, or indirect-direct light distributions, or as an unlit acoustic baffle to achieve the desired illumination and acoustic reverberation levels with a coordinated look.
An addition to the Acoustics Solutions program is the AirCore Blade. The acoustical blade is designed and engineered using Focal Point’s patent-pending AirCore technology to acoustically outperform standard acoustical blades. Leveraging the same material and color palette as the Seem 1 Acoustic, it can be paired with Seem 1 Acoustic illuminated baffles to deliver illumination and sound levels with a harmonized visual aesthetic.
In addition to expanding the acoustic portfolio, Focal Point is also introducing additional material color options. Standard, Premium and Extended color palettes enable designers to select from a variety of shades to deliver a personalized aesthetic.
