Media Release – Acoufelt Acquisition of EC Modular Range
Acoufelt announces the acquisition of the EC Modular carpet tile range from EC Group as of the 1st of December, 2016.
Acoufelt provides acoustic material to absorb unwanted noise from all room surfaces; Floors, Walls and Ceilings (The Acoufelt Acoustic FWC Philosophy). Acoufelt acoustic panels, batts and felt on a roll can be printed to look like decorative or even fashionable hard surfaces without significantly compromising the acoustic properties of the material, hence removing the need for a compromise between designing for aesthetics and designing for acoustics.
“Acoufelt is all about making spaces quieter”, says Acoufelt Managing Director and Co-Founder Phil Grace.
Acoustic panels, batts and felt on roll can be used to address noise reflected from walls and ceilings but Acoufelt needed an acoustic carpet solution to deliver the floor component of the Acoufelt Acoustic FWC Philosophy.
“We needed to develop our own carpet tiles with very high acoustic property”, says Phil Grace. “The EC Modular carpet tile range exhibits excellent acoustic performance. When the opportunity came for us to acquire EC Modular, we saw it as an opportunity to bring a range of carpet tiles to market faster than if we solely developed our own.
With the addition of the EC Modular range, Acoufelt now has a comprehensive set of options for addressing the “floor” in the Acoufelt Acoustic FWC Philosophy.
“We will continue to develop our own tiles with an uncompromised focus on Acoustic performance”, says Phil Grace. “We will have a renewed focus on stock across our key locations in Australia and also source other carpet tile solutions that deliver medium level acoustic performance at a lower price point to allow for projects with restricted budget.”
This latest move confirms Acoufelt as a serious player in the carpet tile business with offerings that can help with creating quieter spaces and making quiet.
