KNP-V Groove Face

These highly durable acoustical panel absorbers are the ideal solution to airborne noise problems in abuse prone areas.

Functional and aesthetically pleasing, the Kinetics' KNP panel is ideal for controlling reverberant noise problems in gymnasiums, natatoriums, and recreation centers.

These highly durable, abuse resistant panels are easy to install on standard Z-clips.

KNP panels are constructed from galvanized steel or aluminum perforated facing. The facing is folded along the vertical edges and is reinforced at each end with solid channels. Each panel is filled with a 2" thick, glass fiber sound absorber encapsulated in a heat sealed poly vinyl bag.

The perforated metal face is powder coat painted in a variety of specified colors. The Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.90 (A mounted) means more reverberation control for a given coverage area when compared to many other abuse resistant panels.
