SoundPly Formation is an acoustic panel that blends into existing environments – a solution for building managers who want invisible noise control. Its micro-perforations (0.45-0.55mm wide) absorb sound and have high
NRC ratings yet are visually indistinguishable at a normal viewing distance. This nonobtrusive offering makes it
easy to match adjacent woodwork, laminates, vinyl wallcoverings, and painted surfaces. In addition to sheets,
the material can be formed into complex shapes with curves (shown). ASTM tested using a direct-mount installation. SOUNDPLY FORMATION by NAVY ISLAND. Circle 245. www.navyisland.com
The Impressions Collection is a
wall-mounted system of acoustic substrates
with embossed patterns. The ultra-thin
tiles effectively absorb frequencies
in the 500-2,000 Hz band where the
human voice registers. Each 12x12-inch
tile slides onto a Z-clip rail system
that offers a consistent and secure
architectural wall base. The installation
measures less than 1 inch in profile.
The 100% polyester, non-woven fabric
is inherently antistatic, GREENGUARD
certified, and available in a variety of
colors. IMPRESSIONS COLLECTION by

The Brody WorkLounge is an alternative to enclaves that
transforms underutilized spaces into covetable destinations.
Wrapped on three sides, Brody provides privacy and blocks
visual distractions for workers or students in open environments. Users are seated in an alert recline that supports both
the upper and lower back. The adjustable, angled work surface
holds technology at eye level to reduce neck and shoulder
strain. The cocoon-like space includes power, lighting, and
personal storage tucked into the side. Can also be used without
screens. BRODY WORKLOUNGE by STEELCASE. Circle 247.
Accord is a recliner that enhances nurse safety and patient welfare.
Rather than locking casters, a central brake comprised of large rubber
pads lowers to the floor with a flick of the foot pedal. The chair is easy to
glide around corners or sideways in tight spaces with one hand. Its Intel-litrac caster system magnetically senses when the chair is being pushed
in a straight line and snaps the wheels into a forward position. The arms
pop up and pivot behind the back for patient transfer and IV placement.
Entirely field replaceable, Accord also has a tool-less removable seat for
easy cleaning and infection control. ACCORD by WIELAND. Circle 248.
