    GIK Acoustics Class A Fire RatingGIK Acoustics products are not only Greensafe, but they carry a Class A fire rating which means we continue to provide our clients with the safest most effective products available. The Class A fire rating means that GIK Acoustics treatments have received the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.

GIK FlexRange Technology Logo

GIK Acoustics was awarded US Pat. 9,091,060 which encompasses our proprietary FlexRange Technology (FRT) membrane system.  Backed by research, development and testing, FlexRange Technology encompasses our proprietary bass trap design while offering customers a true choice to control the frequency range that’s absorbed. Without a membrane, bass traps are broadband.  With a membrane, bass traps absorb even lower frequencies while the membrane has less effect absorbing upper frequencies.

  • FULL RANGE – The Full Range option is broadband in nature maximizing low end and upper frequencies to give a true broadband range of absorption. Full Range is an excellent option at controlling low end frequencies and is the preferred choice for early reflection points or when upper frequencies need 100% absorption.
  • RANGE LIMITER – The second option has a built-in frequency range limiter. This option includes a membrane system which starts absorbing at a lower frequency but also has a cut off starting around 400Hz. Using the Range Limiter option ensures maximum low end absorption while retaining nearly 100% of the upper frequencies within your room. Ideally used when no upper frequency absorption is required/desired. The Range Limiter option is an ideal solution to make a small room sound larger, keeping life within the room.

Broadband treatments offer great performance with an attractive price and when coupled with diffusion and scattering, can give your room a completely balanced sound throughout, without over-dampening high frequencies.

The GIK Acoustics built-in Scatter Plate option allows even decay time from low to high frequencies while providing the necessary space for absorption to flatten the frequency response. Read more about the new GIK Acoustics Scatter Plate here.

After adding products to your cart, you can then select Scatter Plate from the Diffusion Products menu and have them built into your Acoustic Panel or Bass Trap for only $49.00 per panel.

Mounting a Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap© or Corner CT Alpha Bass Trap

The GIK Acoustics Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap© and Corner CT Alpha Bass Trap are intended to be freestanding or stacked floor-to-ceiling. However, if you wish to mount a Tri-Trap or Corner CT in a wall-to-wall corner, we recommend using L brackets on the side walls so the bass trap sits atop the bracket like a shelf. Note that you can’t drill into the Tri-Trap or Corner CT frame.

The Tri-Trap and Corner CT can also be mounted in the wall-to-ceiling corners using four L brackets: two placed on the ceiling and two placed on the wall to hold the bass trap into place.  See the following examples in composer/producer Mike Plas’s studio.

CLOUD MOUNTING BRACKETS

GIK Acoustics Cloud Mount Brackets

It’s recommended to place acoustic panels on the ceiling to reduce floor-to-ceiling slap echo, control height modes and eliminate early reflections. But mounting 242 Acoustic Panels, 244 Bass Traps or Monster Bass Traps overhead can be tricky. We’ve taken the difficulty out of the equation with our Cloud Mounting Brackets©. Not only are they easy to use, but at $15.00 per set they’re easy on your budget. It’s the perfect solution for acoustic panel or bass trap ceiling mounting. Click here to add Cloud Mounting Brackets© to your order.

BOOM STAND BRACKETS

GIK Acoustics Boom Stand Brackets sqInstead of mounting the panel on the wall, we offer our Boom Stand Brackets. Installing these brackets on the panel allows it to attach to any boom stand turning your 242 Bass Trap with FlexRange Technology into a gobo or a portable vocal booth. For only $12 each you can add increased flexibility to our acoustic panels. (Boom stand not included.) Click here to add boom stand brackets to your order.

Patented LogoThere’s a difference between a GIK Acoustics product and all others on the market.

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issued utility patent US 9,091,060 for GIK’s unique, proprietary design of its acoustic absorbers. The patent covers the design and construction of GIK Acoustics’ 242 Acoustic Panels, 244 Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology, and Monster Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology.

In addition to our patent, we separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.

QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:

GIK Acoustics Bright White and Off White sqGIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system.

Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted with quality insulation material, fabrics and hardwood plywoods.  We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics – not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship’s engine room.

We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods – not cheap imports – to construct our frames.  The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability. Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won’t shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber. To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics – from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics.

GIK Acoustics Class A Fire RatingGIK Acoustics products are not only Greensafe, but they carry a Class A fire rating which means we continue to provide our clients with the safest most effective products available. The Class A fire rating means that GIK Acoustics treatments have received the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.

Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products. The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.

INFORMATIVE:

Bass Traps & Low FrequenciesWhen it comes to improving the sound quality in a room, many find the science to be overwhelming and the task of DIY’ing acoustic treatments to be daunting. Our solutions are based on the science of acoustics and one of the key dynamics to our success lies in demystifying sound dynamics and room acoustics. We are firm believers in education and our website is full of Educational Articles and Videos. It’s long been our goal to help customers truly understand how sound behaves in a space and the importance and benefits of proper room treatment.

With our blog Acoustics & Audiogeekery, GIK Acoustics aims to explain what you’re hearing and how to improve your audio. Our blog is a resource and a repository of discussions and techniques in the quest to make better audio. Audio is interesting – whether you’re making music, mixing, or simply listening & enjoying – and manipulating technology to solve problems to improve audio is the essence of “audiogeekery.”

INNOVATIVE:

GIK FRT Logo 270Over the past 10 years, GIK Acoustics has pioneered a number of acoustic treatments that you can’t find anywhere else. From the Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap© to our Soffit Bass Trap© to the built in Scatter Plate, GIK continues to innovate. After a year of research & development, in 2013 we introduced FlexRange Technology – our unique, proprietary system for providing the best in bass trapping and low end absorption.

ALPHA_SERIES_LOGO_FINALIn 2015 we launched the Alpha Series, a line of acoustic panels and bass traps with a wood face which has a mathematical sequence of slots for one-dimensional scattering / diffusion. The Alpha Series literally changes the face of acoustic panels and bass traps by beautifully combining absorption with diffusion and enhancing any room both aesthetically and acoustically with superior quality, high-performing, and stylish room treatments.

GIK Acoustics is also proud to have launched creative, unique products such as: the multifunctional PIB (Portable Isolation Booth), the decorative and effective Impression Series, and the striking, precise Gotham N23 5″ Quadratic Skyline Diffusor.

We are constantly innovating, so look for more solutions and creative treatments from GIK Acoustics.

ENVIRONMENTAL:

Greensafe GIK AcousticsIt’s our commitment to use environmentally safe materials for all our products.  We use ECOSE absorption material, eco-friendly wood and we offer customers recycled fabric options as well.
