Hufcor Uncorks A Sustainable Benefit Of Recycled Plastic Bottles With Acoustical Harmony For Partitions And Doors
Exceptional Performance, Unmatched Fade Resistance, Easy to Clean and Maintain
Janesville, WI…Hufcor Inc., the most installed brand of operable partition in the world, introduces Acoustical Harmony sculpted carpet wallcoverings, fabricated 100 percent from recycled plastic bottles.
Acoustical Harmony is offered in a handful of patterns and selected color choices and offers an alternative to standard "ribbed" carpets available for decades. It is resistant to moisture, mildew, rot and bacteria, and is non-allergenic.
Hufcor Acoustical Harmony partition and door wallcoverings use the patented Fosshield® material science and fiber technology that is an FDA-cleared protection. It incorporates silver and copper ions into the root fibers that naturally attack microbes, delivering extraordinary antimicrobial defense.
The new Hufcor wallcovering has a noise reduction rating up to .25 NRC, helping to bring a more tranquil noise level within a given space using Hufcor operable partitions.
“Not only does it gobble up microbes, it eats up sound waves,” says Scott Staedter, Senior Manager of Brand Development for Hufcor. “Beauty and function are in harmony.”
Other certifications include:
▪ UL Classified - Fire Rating - Class A/ASTM E-84
▪ NFPA 265 Corner Burn for Textile Wallcovering
▪ UL Environmental-Certified recycled content
▪ LEED - Contributes toward overall project certification (recycled content)
Acoustical Harmony is the only non-woven wallcovering product made in the United States from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. The technology uses 15 plastic bottles to create one yard of acoustical wallcovering that can be recycled back into fiber at the end of its lifecycle.
One of the first installations of Hufcor’s Acoustical Harmony partition will be at the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, NC – the nation's first LEED® Platinum hotel. Hufcor has already installed a series of movable glasswall systems to divide the lobby spaces into private social areas. This helped the hotel achieve LEED daylighting and recycled material credits.
Hufcor Acoustical Harmony features eco-fi® polyster staple fiber that is resistant to shrinking and stretching and highly durable. In addition, the wallcovering is solution dyed to resist sunlight and prevent fading.
Hufcor Acoustical Harmony is ideal for operable partitions, portable panels, and accordion doors for a wide variety of applications, including health care, hospitality, corporate, educational, institutional and entertainment. It offers FRISÈ, BAMBU and RIPPLE specifications.
