Panl-Sorb® Acoustic Metal Panels

INC Panl-Sorb Metal Acoustical Panels combine maximum noise absorption and durability in an attractive, modular unit. Our functional flat perforated panels can be located anywhere on walls and ceilings to instantly reduce noise levels and control reverberation... solving the problems that make communication and concentration difficult in many environments.

Acoustic Metal Panel Benefits:

Our acoustical metal panels are rugged enough for industrial environments, yet attractive enough for placement in commercial and institutional spaces like offices, auditoriums and gymnasiums making Panl-Sorb one of the most versatile sound absorbers available. And with their high noise reduction characteristics, most problems can be solved with as little as 25-30% coverage of the reflective surfaces making Panl-Sorb a very cost-effective solution to your problem.

Offered in a wide variety of colors and sizes with built in mounting brackets, Panl-Sorb acoustical panels can be installed in rows or a variety of patterns that will best compliment your room’s interior design. Optional low-frequency and continuous coverage mounting systems are also available to provide a broad range of performance requirements.
