GIK Acoustics Reveals FreeStand Acoustic Panel

March 3, 2014
GIK Acoustics has revealed a new movable, lightweight absorption panel, the FreeStand Acoustic Panel.

The FreeStand Acoustic Panel is a gobo – a movable acoustic panel – and is ideal for any room where wall mounted panels cannot be used or for rooms with multiple purposes.

For listening rooms, control rooms and home theaters, the FreeStand is a stylish solution for use in front of doors and windows, the company says. For recording studios, the FreeStand can be used around drums or amps.

“We developed the FreeStand as an option for customers who need flexibility in the acoustic solutions for their space," said owner and president Glenn Kuras. "We’ve always offered a variety of stands as accessories, but with the introduction of the FreeStand Acoustic Panel, customers get the added benefit of an affordable acoustic treatment plus a built-in support. It’s a great product for treating rooms that serve other functions – such as living rooms as theater rooms or bedrooms as mixing studios. It’s also adept for professional studios where treatments need to be placed in various areas during recording.

"The FreeStand is lightweight, versatile and totally movable making it ideal for all sorts of uses," Kuras continued. "They really are a great addition to our product line because they're ready to use out of the box—just wham, bam, put it where you need it. Move it around, use it anywhere. And if your roommate or your wife doesn't like it in the room, just store it away out of sight.”

The FreeStand covers 5 feet of vertical wall space, making it an ideal solution for early reflection points or helping to control overall ambiance in a room. When placed against the wall, the supports leave a 4-inch gap between the FreeStand and the wall which increases low end absorption.
