These two most popular CMA Acoustical Systems compliment each other for applications in the same environments, namely schools, gyms, swimming pools and industrial workplaces.
Baffles may be hung vertically in a variety of designs or hung horizontally – clouds. CMA Baffle Systems provide the most sound absorption per unit because they are
effective in absorption from all sides. Acoustical performance is usually published in sabins per unit.
Baffles are available as a standard in three different facings. The most popular encapsulation material is nylon sailcloth for a softer, fabric look without the fabric
price. A new trend in application for baffles are in restaurants with exposed structures in order to reduce the reverberation time.
