This is how room acoustics reach a new level

Improving room acoustics,
Optimising working conditions

A high level of acoustic quality is desirable in all aspects of life, because excessive noise hinders effective communication, disturbs concentration and, over the long term, can even make people ill.

At Polyvlies Franz Beyer GmbH, we produce and bundle our acoustic panels under the brand Fonatex from our company headquarters in Hörstel-Bevergern. These significantly reduce noise, reverberations and background noise in the relevant frequency ranges (ca. 63–4.000 Hz)

Fonatex Standard is produced in a weight range from 1.000–4.000 g/m² and with material thicknesses of 4–50 mm. A variable mix of fibres, structures and densities allow us to implement numerous customer-specific requirements.

Naturally high-tech. Growing with the tasks, acting sustainably and accepting responsibility – have always been important to us. That’s why at Polyvlies renewable raw materials are playing an increasingly important role. More and more flax, hemp, kenaf, jute, sisal, wool and cotton are being used. This is how high-tech products with the claim to sustainably protect our environment are created.
