pinta acoustic introduces PHONSTOP™ Ceiling and Wall Tiles

Jan. 24, 2009

MINNEAPOLIS—pinta acoustic, inc. has introduced PHONSTOP Ceiling and Wall Tiles made from 100 percent recycled glass sintered to form rigid, lightweight and porous sound absorbers. PHONSTOP products have exceptional acoustical properties.

PHONSTOP V is made for adhesive applications on walls and ceilings. This product has a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of up to 0.90 to reduce reverberation and echo. Tiles can be adhered—using PHONSTOP pa81 or pa101 Adhesive—directly to walls and ceilings without subconstruction or wall cavity. Panels are available in dimensions of 24- by 24- by 2-inches (610 by 610 by 50 mm) and 24- by 48- by 2-inches (610 by 1220 by 50 mm). Tiles offer two edge options: One face of the tile features 3/8" (9 mm) chamfer beveled edges, while the reverse face has square edges. Tiles are temperature and weather resistant for outdoor applications. In weather-exposed conditions, tiles should have a PHONSTOP pt13 Sealer.

PHONSTOP V tiles are available in natural grey but can be painted on-site with a non-bridging paint applied with an airless sprayer. For a seamless, monolithic appearance on walls or ceilings, tiles should be primed with PHONSTOP pt17 Primer, followed by two layers of PHONSTOP pa85 Plaster applied before painting.

PHONSTOP E is made for ceiling grid applications. It features an NRC of up to 0.70. PHONSTOP E can be mounted in pinta acoustic's or any standard ceiling grid systems. Tiles are available in 24- by 24- by 1-inch nominal (604 by 604 by 25 mm) and 24- by 48- by 1-inch nominal (604 by 1213 by 25 mm) dimensions and are available in natural grey.

Both PHONSTOP products are eligible for LEED credits and can be used indoors and outdoors. The product is Class 1 (A) fire rated. Lightweight, durable PHONSTOP is resistant to chemicals, moisture, mold and impact. Non-fibrous PHONSTOP is easy to install, and easy to cut and drill to accommodate fixtures.

PHONSTOP is suitable for use with antigraffiti systems.

PHONSTOP is ideal for new and renovation projects in environments such as offices, schools, staircases, indoor swimming pools, gymnasiums, underground parking garages, transit stations, factories, shooting ranges, broadcast/audio facilities, cafeterias, religious facilities, assembly and manufacturing areas, public buildings, multifamily buildings and more.
