The Tekboard Technology
The Tekboard technology acoustical panels allows a combination of structural and acoustical properties. In fact, the honeycomb structures serve to strengthen the resistance of the panel while ensuring maximum lightness. These cells also ensure an air space that amplifies the acoustical properties of the composite.
Since 2015, Texel Technical Materials, Inc. is working to develop this new composite. Several versions have been produced in the laboratory. The primary purpose was to laminate the felted acoustic panels (B) (Düotex), on a cardboard honeycomb (C). The tests carried out have shown that the composite could improve the acoustic performances and give a very high structural rigidity. We therefore decided to market the Tekboard and integrate this composite into the Feltkütur product range.
For the industrial production, Texel Technical Materials, Inc. has decided to work with Panolite of Lac-Mégantic. Panolite has great expertise in the manufacture of cellular structural panels. Thanks to this union, we were able to expand the range of Tekboard panels, including a panel with “Sound Blocking” (STC) properties. Panolite's expertise made it possible to integrate edgebanding and a variety of hardware for panel assembly, in order to create modules.
Whether it's for the manufacture of acoustic baffles, relaxation booths, telephone booths, divider panels or office furniture, the Tekboard is an ideal solution.
