How it’s Made: Poly Max
Effective noise-controlling solutions undergo detailed processes to ensure they properly work to absorb noise and echoes.
Poly Max acoustic panels are some of the most cost-effective solutions available to reduce distracting echoes and noise reverberations. Made of 100% polyester, Poly Max panels are decorative and customizable for a variety of spaces. Before they’re ready to be installed, they undergo an extensive manufacturing process to ensure they work as they’re intended.
The Poly Max Process
Because Poly Max acoustic panels are created with 100% polyester, they are non-allergenic, non-toxic, and fungal and mold resistant. They are also Class A fire rated, prioritizing the safety of those around the material. Polyester-based materials contain recycled fiber, including plastic from water bottles.
In order to most effectively mold the recycled material, they are first blended together with other recycled fibers and extruded into spaghetti strands. Once the fiber strands are cooled, they can be thermally bound together, taking the form of a liquid. Because they are not manufactured with formaldehyde or binding agents, Poly Max panels are safe to handle and be around. Finally, the liquid is able to be molded into the desired sound-absorbing shape. Poly Max panels are manufactured in different colors and thicknesses to provide a variety of uses to suit the needs of any project.
Prior to going on the market, the panels are put to a number of different acoustical tests to ensure they absorb the right frequencies of sound. These tests simulate different environments and applications of Poly Max. If the materials pass the test, they’re given an NRC rating to show how effective the noise-absorption is.
Applications of Poly Max
Once the materials of Poly Max are bound, molded and ready to go, they become some of the most cost-effective sound-absorbing materials available on the market. Because the recycled materials are accessible, they are easy and affordable to make, and the sound-absorbing qualities of Poly Max are ideal for large and small scale operations.
Poly Max acoustic panels are an effective noise-controlling solution for auditoriums, gyms, schools or kitchens. The professional-grade, sturdy panels can also be used in major restaurant operations or event venues, such as stadiums and concert halls. An experienced contractor can easily install these panels on your walls or ceilings, or as overhead baffles.
