Acoustic Design Works takes pride in crafting products that help our customers solve noise-related problems in their homes, businesses, and elsewhere. That is the main purpose of our sound-absorbing acoustic panels. But it’s not all they have to offer. In addition to being high-quality, aesthetically pleasing, and made in the U.S., our acoustic panels serve another important purpose: protecting the environment. We are proud to make eco-friendly acoustic panels.
Use of Recycled Content
This is possible through the use of recycled content. By leaning on materials that were either previously used or discarded before use, ADW is able to offer acoustic panels that are not only well-crafted and effective but also eco-friendly.
Let’s go into more detail.
In the manufacturing process for acoustic panels, ADW uses fiberglass that contains 61% recycled content. 34% is “pre-consumer” glass cullet (meaning it was made but never used), while the other 27% is “post-consumer” glass cullet (meaning it was previously used). The most important number, though, is 61%. Well over half of the fiberglass in our acoustic panels is recycled content.
On top of that, the fabric that we use as covering for our acoustic panels is also eco-friendly. Both varieties – the FR701 Series and the Anchorage Series – are made of polyester that comes from 100% recycled plastic.
In other words, our acoustic panels are eco-friendly from top to bottom.
Benefits to the Environment
How does this help the environment? In a variety of ways.
- Conserves Natural Resources – Sand is the basis for glass and fiberglass. It’s also the second most consumed natural resource in the world, behind water. By utilizing recycled content, ADW is helping to conserve the world’s decreasing supply of usable sand.
- Reduces Energy Use and Carbon Emissions – By taking advantage of recycled materials, ADW cuts back on the need to process natural resources, which saves energy and reduces carbon outputs.
- Protects Ecosystems – Harvesting natural resources can have a disruptive and damaging impact on ecosystems, even causing the displacement of local inhabitants.
And there are more.
