The award-winning Christchurch Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre has utilised NOVAhush Panel Absorber sheets behind its stunning and ethereal leafy ceiling pattern to discreetly reduce noise reverberation in its busy public spaces. The Gardens Visitor Centre designed by Patterson Associates recently won the John Scott Award for Public Architecture at The New Zealand Architecture awards.
Mammoth NOVAhush's 100% polyester Panel Absorber sheets are available in a range of thicknesses and NRC levels for a variety of commercial applications including walls, ceilings or as a hanging acoustic baffle. It is safe to use as an interior surface liner as it has a Group 1-S rating on the ISO 9705 Fire Test.
The Panel Absorber is available in white, black or grey and can be supplied either un-faced or with a facing in white or black. The Christchurch Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre explored both facing colours and opted for white to more subtly accent their distinctive leaf motif.
The sustainability credentials of Mammoth NOVAhush Panel Absorbers lent themselves to such a green project:
- Manufactured by InsulPro — a carboNZero certified organisation
- 100% polyester including fibres from recycled plastic bottles
- Long-lasting with a 50 year warranty
- Odourless, non-irritant with no added chemicals
