Auralex SpaceArray diffusor now fire rated
Auralex Acoustics has announced that its SpaceArray diffusor has recently passed the requirements to earn a Class B fire rating. Unique in the industry for a wood diffusor product, the newly rated SpaceArray will be showcased at InfoComm 2007 (booth 9430).
The SpaceArray successfully passed testing in accordance with ASTM E84, a standard test for surface burning characteristics of building materials. The test calculates both flame spread and smoke densities. Additionally, the SpaceArray recently passed acoustical testing in accordance with ISO 17497-1, a standard test method for sound scattering and sound scattering coefficients.
Designed by Russ Berger for Auralex Acoustics, the SpaceArray combines hemispherical acoustical diffusion with a wood finish. Based on a quasi-random series that provides excellent diffusion performance without visual patterning, the 24in by 24in solid paulownia wood panels install easily and can be used in a variety of placement options.
