Let’s take a closer look

What can Series ONE do for you?

Make a real difference to your office, hotel, restaurant or public space. Wherever you work, you can experience optimal acoustic design. Our affordable panels combine innovative engineering with light, strong ecological materials. Discover the key aspects of Series ONE.

OPTIMAL ACOUSTICS

hear yourself think

A happy, healthy workforce is vital for maximum productivity. But exposure to noise is an insidious risk in open-plan offices: besides reductions in physical and mental performance, it has been linked to cardiovascular disease, headaches, sleep disorders and aggression. Cutting unwanted noise reduces stress and improves focus. Relaxing surroundings stimulate the quality of work. And this is where [laud]’s innovative technology comes in. Thousands of tiny cavities in the core of the panels absorb sound waves and prevent them from bouncing back into the room.

Offer your workforce an improved work-life balance and greater comfort in the office. Connect employees by dividing the space to separate them from sources of stress. And reap the rewards: fewer stress reactions, reduced absenteeism and an increase in general wellbeing.

how it works

There are many acoustic panels on the market, but not all of them offer equally efficient sound absorption, so we got our panels tested according to EN ISO 354 (2013) to find out how good they really are.

Testing is conducted in a reverberation room at frequencies from 100 to 5000 Hz, the relevant range for room acoustics. Most office noise is within a narrower band, 250 to 2000 Hz, roughly in the middle of the tested range. The yellow bar above also shows the range where human hearing is most sensitive. So a genuinely efficient acoustic panel will need to provide optimal protection where office noise coincides with sensitive human hearing.

impressive results

Acoustic panels are certified in an absorption class from A to E, with Class A reserved for the technologies that provide optimal absorption of unwanted sounds. Our panels passed this test with flying colours. The results showed a weighted sound absorption coefficient (αw) of 0.95: well above the minimum requirement for a Class A certificate. You will find more detailed numerical data in the test results and report below.

AFFORDABLE DESIGN

simply unique

Series ONE’s unique, modern style combines industrial technology with unrivalled design. Behind the soft, heat-moulded felt is a whole host of innovative technologies and an industrial production process that guarantees a precision product for an affordable price.

An ingenious combination of just five modules allows infinite combinations with just a limited range of basic units. Installation is child’s play with a few simple connection pieces. And when it’s time to switch them around, you can reconfigure your space without any tools at all. Lightweight panels give you unlimited freedom to design your office the way you want it.

Strength and softness, ecology and affordability, industrial technology and minimalist style: as easy to combine as Series One itself.

hidden strength

Series One panels are light but unbelievably strong. Once again, the secret is hidden in a thousand tiny rooms in the panels’ core: its structural compartments are full of air. The two lightweight materials are interconnected to provide impressive strength and durability. And the panels are self-supporting, with no need for heavy frames or bulky supports.

Even the largest panels are easy and ergonomic to handle, install and reposition. They do not bend and are moulded into a shape designed for extra strength.

limitless possibilities

This goes further than affordable design. It’s simply great design. The ingenious modular system offers unlimited possibilities at every level from an individual desk to the whole room. With two distinctive sides – one convex, one concave – you can create fascinating textures, or place two panels back-to-back for a sleek ‘capsule’ effect. Overlap and stagger the panels at different distances from a wall or ceiling. Play with the colour effects of duotone panels. Turn a boring office into a room full of fun. Create breakout zones and quiet cocoons. And when you no longer need your room divider, simply turn it into something else.

TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE

[ laud ] stands for innovation and astonishing technology. Our panels are engineered down to the very last detail. Ingenious dimensions ensure optimal installation even in the most awkward rooms. With the highest standards of sound absorption and careful attention to fire safety, you know you can expect the very best from your acoustic panels.

dimensions

Our clever grid system means that each of our five panels has the ideal dimensions for combining with any other the others.

ECOLOGIC MATERIALS

Ecology is essential. So we want to be sure that [ laud ] panels make a positive contribution to the health of our planet.

make life better for everyone

Thousands of tiny cavities in the core of the panels absorb sound waves and prevent them from bouncing back into the room. Offer your workforce an improved work-life balance and greater comfort in the office. Connect employees by dividing the space to separate them from sources of stress. And reap the rewards: fewer stress reactions, reduced absenteeism and an increase in general wellbeing.

With a sound-absorbent core made of natural materials and an industrial felt exterior made of 60% recycled plastic bottles, [laud] helps you on your way to a more environmentally friendly workplace. [laud] acoustic panels’ core is made up of recycled material. There are future plans to source the plastic for our felt from recycling projects that remove plastic from the sea to protect marine wildlife. And with no formaldehyde in our panels, we help ensure that everyone in your team has clean air to breathe.
