From our 2011 Project Portfolio:
Facility Name: Camp Timberlane, Edgewater Program Center
City, State: Wakeman, Ohio
Type of Facility: Activity center
Installer: The D.K. Kaiser Co., Canton, Ohio
Acoustic Product Company: Eckel Industries, Inc.
Square Footage: 9,800
Number of Floors: 1
Eckel's Eckoustic Functional Panels (EFPs) were used to upgrade the acoustic quality of the center's high-ceiling assembly room. Reverberation time of the “as-built” space was too high and needed to be better controlled.
The V-ridged EFPs are unit panels, therefore, they could be spot located in the center's tongue-and-groove wood-paneled ceiling and its drywalled walls. Brown EFPs were selected to blend in with the ceiling color. For the wall panels, the EFPs were either a shade of green, red, or white. Other advantages of the EFPs are that they are graffiti-resistant and fire-resistant.
