Rayva announced Thursday the availability of the company’s new (and patent-pending) acoustic wall panels for home theaters. The unique collapsible panel design eliminates challenges and costs associated with traditional options. Rayva reduces the time, effort and expense of acoustic wall panels to a home theater by shipping the panel’s wooden frame deconstructed and the fabric coverings premade to fit precisely over the panel using a proprietary internal tightening system.
Acoustic Fabric Installs Like a Fitted Bedsheet (with Tighteners)
The frame, which can be ordered from Rayva in any dimension, can be constructed entirely at the job site with nothing more than the screws (included) and a screwdriver. A precut piece of acoustic fabric fits over the frame like a bedsheet. A series of metal pulleys attach to the edges of the frame and turnbuckles on the inside of it stretch the fabric taut, creating a perfect, fabric wall panel, free of wrinkles and gaps. The panels attach to the walls of the theater via a magnetic rail, quickly covering pre-installed acoustic absorbers, diffusers and reflectors.
New Design Cuts Construction Costs
The patent-pending panels are available now with any of Rayva’s pre-engineered home theater offerings. Customers can order them in a variety of shapes and dimensions to suit the acoustic needs of the space. LED lighting elements can also be added and the fabric itself is available in a variety of colors and designs.
Fabrics Are Easily Swapped Out
Should the acoustic treatment’s fabric get damaged or should the home theater style/color scheme change, new fabric can be easily installed to swap out the old one.
