Primacoustic's latest collection of hardware for hanging acoustic baffles and clouds includes the Corkscrew, SlipNot, and Helix.
"The new hanging systems multiply the uses and functionality of several of the Paintables and Broadway panels," said Primacoustic's Jay Porter. "Our installation hardware has always been well recognized for its ease of application and these new systems are certain to please integrators looking for tried and tested options."
Designed to create a vertical baffle using any type of Broadway or Paintable panel, the Corkscrew is a spring-shaped, tensioned steel eye-screw that twists into the edge of the panel for placement overhead. Combining the Corkscrew with the SlipNot enables the user to make quick adjustments to the panel to achieve a uniform height.
Designed to suspend Primacoustic clouds and baffles, the SlipNot is a suspension cable system that combines aircraft steel rope with a cam-style releasable hook for height adjustment at one end and an eye-sling at the other. A user can attach the sling to a suspension point and clip the hook onto the Primacoustic cloud or baffle using either the Corkscrew or Helix panel mounting screws.
The Helix is a solid zinc, die-cast device that integrates an eye hole and a screw that twists into the panel, transforming any Primacoustic panel into an acoustic cloud. The Cloud is then hung overhead using the adjustable Primacoustic SlipNot suspension system. The Helix can hang Primacoustic's new collection of cloud Paintables, including the Hexus (hexagonal), the Cirrus (circular), and the Altos (square). It also works with any Broadway panel to create a horizontal acoustic cloud.
