Perforated Metal Acoustical Panels

Perforated Metal Acoustical Panels

A highly durable perforated metal acoustical panel. Ideal solution to airborne noise problems in demanding environments. Available with flat or V-groove face.


Kinetics KNP Perforated Metal Acoustical Panels are functional and aesthetically pleasing perforated panels which are used to control reverberant noise problems. Although primarily intended as an absorber, KNP panels will act as a barrier when a solid back is added. KNP sound absorption panels are useful as additions to existing metal or concrete barriers to reduce reverberation time and to lower reflected sound.


KNP Perforated Metal Acoustical Panels deliver ample sound absorption over a wide frequency range. KNP acoustical properties, appearance, and rugged durability make it the choice for controlling reverberant, noisy spaces where panels must resist damage from impacts, abrasion, or moisture.

KNP panels can be attached to walls, ceilings, or other surfaces and can be located in a manner to achieve an aesthetically pleasing pattern. Kinetics sound absorption panels are available with optional rear backing to increase transmission loss and be used as a barrier. Available faced with perforated material on both sides and used as hanging absorptive baffles.
