Arktura architectural ceilings use a felted material to create customizable acoustical drop ceiling systems.
SoundStar® ceiling system employs hexagonally shaped cellular coffers to create a scalable way to add geometric dimensionality and provide acoustic dampening. A module is comprised of angled surfaces made from Soft Sound® acoustical material with a metal substructure.
Two module sizes can be mixed as desired: 12” or 24” deep. Thanks to the modular configuration, SoundStar® is adaptable to a range of spaces and designs. It is a scalable system that can be configured in various different layouts over entire spans or desired spaces. SoundStar® accommodates new and existing structural and lighting elements and can be used to hide unsightly features.
Soft Sound® is an acoustical material made up of 100% PET plastic with up to 60% recycled content. It can be recycled at the end of its lifecycle. Soft Sound® can provide an NRC rating of up to 0.9. Couple that with the system's angular faces and modularity an excellent acoustic performance can be achieved across an entire space or a desired zone.
Arkura products are preconfigured solutions designed with an array of adaptable criteria and effects. Ceiling systems can be customized using Arkturas' 'toolset' which includes many powerful design variables:
- Overall configuration
- Attachment points
To install the acoustical ceiling systems, a step-by-step kit of parts approach is adopted with easy-to-follow instructions cutting cost and installation time.
Arktura is a carbon-neutral company. They manufacture in a zero-waste manufacturing facility in the USA and ship globally.
