AcoustiShell ArcWood™ curvilinear diffuser-reflectors are offered with attractive wood veneer, laminates and custom finish facings to complement your designer’s color palette. The numerous shapes and curvatures available provide various elements of diffusion and longitudinal back-scattering of sound energy as well as opportunities for various aesthetic designs. Canopied arrays and grouping by the installer may allow the acoustical consultant to design and achieve non-periodic responses and grouped sequencing. AcoustiShell ArcWood’s flat and curvilinear shapes are designed as architectural features to redirect and back-scatter sound spatially and coherently to audience listeners while maintaining desirable reverberation times. The scattering of sound and early reflections by curved shapes improve musical and voice clarity, volume, presence and intelligibility while helping to provide a more intimate connection with performers and their performance on stage.
