Primacoustic Ships Hercules Impact-Resistant Acoustic Panels

With recording studios moving to homes and offices, Primacoustic Hercules is shipping absorption panels that are designed to withstand the abuse of everyday multi-purpose environments.

Primacoustic said while most acoustic panels are delicate and susceptible to damage, Hercules panels were designed to reduce reverberation while looking like new after repeated impact.

Hercules Impact-resistant panels are manufactured from the same high-density (6pcf/96kg/m3) glass wool core as Primacoustic Broadway, but the face of the panel is covered with a rigid fiberglass layer. This facing allows the panel to effectively absorb most frequencies, but the protection will prevent damage occurring from accidental contact.

Whether someone bumps into the panel, the Hercules panel will remain looking fresh and intact. This durable facing even allows for the use of thumbtacks in the panel, making it ideal for office spaces.

Hercules panels measure 24 x 48 x 2-inches with square edges, and are available in beige or grey acoustically transparent fabric. The cost is $699.99 per box of six panels.
