Christmas is Coming…But We’re Still Innovating!

Most people start to wind down before Christmas, but not us! Here at Agile Acoustics, our own little elves are creating innovative new products to add to our range – and we think you’ll love our latest addition.

Introducing…AgileSCREEN/Edison! The freestanding acoustic screen has been designed with office spaces in mind, but we envisage this product being featured in all sorts of businesses.

The product features a robust sub-frame with Triangle-profile AgileBAFFLES – the AgileBAFFLE being another of our innovations. Pictured here, a prototype of the model features wool from Abraham Moon (in Melton II Carnaby and Melton II Angel) – a striking colour combination, don’t you agree?

A unique design, the freestanding acoustic screen has been named after Thomas Alva Edison – a notable American inventor. In fact, we’ll be sub-naming all our designs after world-famous innovators, paying homage to the great work they accomplished.

So, who is Thomas Edison – and what is he known for? Described as America’s greatest inventor and businessman, he developed many devices in fields including electric power generation and motion pictures. The phonograph and the motion picture camera were two of his innovations, as well as the long-lasting, practical electrical light bulb. Such was his commitment to manufacturing that we wanted to pay tribute to him.

Speaking about the AgileBAFFLE/Edison, our founder Stuart Jones said: “Edison offers something different in acoustic screens for the workplace. The design is completely unique to the ubiquitous flat screen, and because of the fascia profile, it will work a treat acoustically”.

As with all our acoustic solutions, we can create this piece in any size or colour. Our bespoke office screen service means you can see your business kitted out with all manner of Edisons – in teal green, vivid orange or even hot pink! Registered Design pending.

What else is new here at Agile Acoustics, aside from these eye-catching office screens? We’ve been beavering away lately to introduce lots of new technology to our business and our customers, including:

Fantastico! We’re toasting a Job Well Done at Otley’s Buon Apps

Restaurants and hotels are amongst our favourite projects to work on here at Agile Acoustics – and recently, we toasted an acoustic job well done at an Otley-based eaterie. 

Restaurateurs like Alessandro Tocca (from Italian restaurant Buon Apps) approach us fairly regularly. Often, they want to reduce the noise levels in their premises, without ompromising the aesthetics of their space – and who could blame them?!

After all, when you’ve worked so hard to build up a customer base – which is due, in part, to the atmosphere you’ve created in your premises, why change? The good news is businesses who approach the team here at AgileAcoustics don’t need to make any drastically big changes to the way they operate – or the way their restaurant or bar looks.

Alessandro from Buon Apps was one of many of our clients to be experiencing issues with sound quality in his premises. The venue is part of a converted mill complex on the bank of the River Wharfe and it’s a gorgeous space, which deserves to be frequented regularly by diners looking for a meal in a relaxed ambience.

Buon Apps was crying out for an acoustic solution which looked great but was practical too. So, what did we come up with? We utilised specially-made Parallelogram tiles – and before long, we were presenting our ideas to Alessandro and the team. Of course, they loved it and we were soon installing the new acoustic solution.

Alessandro was extremely happy with the solution we proposed and later put in place – and he’s relieved to now be working from a space that doesn’t just look great, it sounds it too!

What did we do, then? During phase one of our project, we installed 20 of our specially-designed Parallelogram tiles, before introducing another 16 tiles to the restaurant once we started phase two. It was all stations go down at Alessandro’s restaurant – and the 50-mm thick tiles (as opposed to our standard 30mm-thick tiles) helped to provide extra absorption, while also ticking the ‘great design’ box that Alessandro was hoping our solution would tick!

What did Alessandro have to say about working with us, then? “I care passionately about every aspect of my customers’ dining experience and was delighted that AgileAcoustics helped me to improve this. The tiles look fantastic and really complement the style of the restaurant. It’s a pleasure to be stopped by customers and told how much they have enjoyed dining with us now that the ambience is just right.”

Think your restaurant could benefit from an acoustic transformation? Echo and reverberation due to the design and furnishings off a restaurant is still a big issue, with a 2016 Speak Easy Report by Action on Hearing Loss stating that nearly 80% of people have left a venue early due to the noise. But our practical solutions can – and do – help lots of businesses in the UK. Why not get in touch with the AgileAcoustics team to see how we can help?
