Choose from 5 beautiful patterns:

In three different plate finishes: blonde wood veneer, white acrylic, black acrylic

Choose the Size:

Choose the level of absorption: 2” thick, 4” thick, or 6” thick panels

The depth or thickness of the panels depends on the amount of low-frequency absorption desired. The thickness of the panel dictates the lower limit of absorption. As thickness increases, the amount of low frequency absorption increases as well. The thicker the panel, the greater the absorption.

The Impression Series is ideal for creating an even balance of low end absorption without losing high frequency presence. The Impression Series features beautifully decorative, semi-reflective rigid plates attached to absorptive acoustic panels and bass traps. The rigid plate not only gives the panel a stylish appearance but also helps reflect/scatter high frequency content in your room giving the proper balance needed.

Half the battle when treating small rooms is to obtain a smooth bass response without over-dampening the high-end. A room filled with full range absorptive panels will absorb too much of the high frequency content, resulting in a dull and muddy room response. Finding an even balance of low end absorption while maintaining the high-end will yield maximized results.

The Impression Series not only performs well in critical listening environments (audio rooms or studios) but is a perfect fit for any room in your home. They are also ideal for public places where the room acoustics interfere with your enjoyment. It could be your workplace or a local restaurant where speech intelligibility is compromised or the room has too much reverberation and is too loud. Whatever the space – living room, an office conference room, restaurant dining room, meeting room, hotel lobby, house of worship, lecture hall, or school cafeteria – balancing room acoustics is vital.

The Impression Series panels are ideal to create balance and remove reverberance, AND the stylish patterns and size options deliver a beautiful visual statement to enhance any room.

The rigid plates are similar to those used on our Alpha Series and work like a range limiter as they reflect high frequency content to retain life inside the room. In addition, the plates provide a scattering effect from the cutout pattern.

The GIK Acoustics Impression Series panels were tested in three mounting methods by Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories™.

Type A Mounting:

The test specimen was laid directly against the test surface. The perimeter edges were exposed, as would be typical of an actual installation of this specimen. Click here for the full A Mount test results.

Type J Mounting:

The specimen is a set of sound absorbing units installed with one surface in direct contact with the test surface and another in direct contact of the side wall of reverberation chamber. This approximates the corner mounting method typical of the actual product installation. The units were evenly spaced along the walls of the chamber (3 on North wall, 2 on South wall, 2 on the East wall and 1 on West wall). Click here for the full J Mount test results.

Type D-100 Mounting:

The test specimen was mounted on 100 mm (3.937 in.) thick wood furring strips spaced 300 mm (12 in.) on centers and laid directly against the test surface. The furring strips produced a 100 mm (3.937 in.) thick air space behind the test specimen. The perimeter was sealed with wood and metal framing. Click here for the full D Mount test results. Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories™ is accredited by the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) as an ISO 17025:2005 Laboratory (NVLAP Lab Code: 100227-0) and for this test procedure. The test reported in this document conformed explicitly with ASTM C423-09a: "Standard Test Method for Sound Absorption and Sound Absorption Coefficients by the Reverberation Room Method." The specimen mounting was performed according to ASTM E795-05(2012): "Standard Practices for Mounting Test Specimens During Sound Absorption Tests." A description of the measuring procedure and room qualifications is available upon request.

Optional freestanding supports available on Rectangle (23.75" x 47.75") panels. See "Installation Guide" tab for more.

sawtooth hanger Impression Series panels are shipped with sawtooth hangers for easy wall mounting. You have your choice of orientation. The Impression Series panels can be hung vertically or horizontally or in a combination of patterns. The choice is yours.
OPTIONAL freestanding supports available on rectangular (23.75" x 47.75") or Narrow (11.75" x 47.75") Impression Series panels. When freestanding, an Impression Series panel can change the acoustics of a room by simply turning the panel to face front or back. Position the semi-reflective plate outward for scattering/diffusion or turn the backside outward for absorption. Freestanding supports also allow for flexible placement in early reflection points or straddling corners as a bass trap.
