Treating Active Spaces

Improve and maintain focus on athletic pursuits with controlled acoustic environments.

Acoustic Goal

Eliminate the echo for participants, instructors, and spectators.

Design Options

Hard perforated finishes or fabric and vinyl coverings. Choose bold or neutral colors and add custom graphics.

Product Attributes

Sound absorbing, impact-resistant, and cleanable.

Deck Treatments

Suspending absorbers horizontally or vertically exposes sound to both sides of the material, making deck treatments a cost-effective acoustic solution.

Wave Baffles

Horizontal Absorber

Attractive and cost effective, hung in a wave-like form in large venues, producing high levels of sound absorption.

Vinyl/Sailcloth Finish


Vertical Absorber

Economical solution with a vinyl layer over an acoustical absorber, ideal for spaces with high ceilings.

Vinyl Finish

Hardside Baffles

Vertical Absorber

Efficient absorption from the bonding of two HardSide panels into two-sided, vertically-hung absorbers.

Fabric Finish

HardSide Cloud

Horizontal Absorber

Horizontally-suspended panels that achieve excellent absorption in a cloud configuration.

Fabric Finish

Add Absorption to Lower Reverb Times

Gymnasiums: Hard surfaces and large room volumes cause long reverberation times. Reverb times should be under 2 seconds, or even less if better speech intelligibility for instruction or public address is desired.

Fitness Centers: Loud music and voice instruction suggest reverb times under 1.5 seconds.

Arenas: Much larger and boomier than gymnasiums, arenas serve multiple roles, from sporting events to concerts. Add treatment to walls and ceilings to obtain an ideal 1.5 second reverberation time.

In the Impact Zone

Impact-resistant acoustical panels should withstand physical blows to their surface without damage. Kinetics offers different finishes and resistance levels, allowing a tailored solution to your activity.
