Barrisol® Microsorber®

Designed for Optimum Acoustic Performance MICROSORBER® is the perfect solution for optimal acoustic performance, in terms of architecture, design and total transparency. The principle of microperforated films and artificial glass plates combines simplicity and efficiency.

Performance

The acoustic energy at the individual perforations is converted into heat through friction that occurs, thus reducing significantly the time of reverberation and noise. The Microsorber® Films and plates artificial transparent glass, translucent and printed MICROSORBER® offer various possibilities to combine optimal acoustic design to an existing architecture. Finished products such as screens, awnings, blinds and acoustic panels MICROSORBER® complete the program.

They may be temporarily or later installed to improve the acoustics of the space. Whether in swimming pools, offices, canteens, churches and galleries, MICROSORBER® proven for many years in the most various locations across Europe.

Microsorber Acoustic Properties

The micro-perforations in the Barrisol Microsorber sheet efficiently convert sound energy to heat as sound contacts the Barrisol of the sheet, reducing the level of sound reverberation in any given room.

Microsorber can be installed as a single sheet or a double sheet. With a single sheet, up to 65% of all sound striking the foil surface is effectively absorbed. Adding an additional layer can provide 80% of sound absorption.

The distance that the sheet is installed from the wall is adjustable. This affects at what frequency bands the solution is most effective at absorbing. The acoustic properties of the system, both as a single and double layer, are expressed in the following graphs:

Whether in open-plan offices, canteens, swimming pools, production sites or entrance halls – the MICROSORBER principle of transparent sound absorption allows for creativity in the design of buildings where room acoustics play a crucial role.

MICROSORBER can be installed in front of walls and glass facades and below ceilings. Various systems for fastening the foil make it possible to attach and detach individual elements with ease.
