Sandler nonwovens dampen sound

Sandler nonwovens dampen sound

A quiet working environment even with an open room layout? Yes, made possible by acoustically efficient Sandler

nonwovens. At this year’s Techtextil exhibition Frankfurt/Main, these materials took centre stage. On occasion

of its 15th participation in this most important trade fair for technical textiles the family-run company

welcomed an international audience to the home of innovative nonwoven solutions. Sandler‘s 90-sqm “home garden”

showcased latest developments for room acoustics, transportation and filtration:

Acoustic partitions made of self-supporting nonwovens provided spatial as well as acoustic separation for a

conference corner at the booth, and—among the products on display—they were also the main magnet for visitors.

Available in different thicknesses, densities and degrees of solidification these textile sound absorbers help

render every room quiet and comfortable. Even amongst the everyday hustle and bustle of open plan offices or,

in this case, exhibition halls they reliably dampen sound, creating optimal conversational acoustics. Various

opportunities of surface finishing also make these all-rounders visual highlights: Printed with various motifs,

laminated with coloured fabrics, flocked to create a roughcast look, or enhanced with a coating made of natural

materials such as hay or cornflowers. The possibilities are manifold and drew the visitors’ attention.

Only a few steps took the guests from room acoustics to building acoustics: A playhouse demonstrated the wide

range of applications for Sandler nonwovens in our homes—from impact sound insulation to insulation between the

rafters, from insulation for hot water tanks to pipe insulation in solar systems, and from sofa upholstery to

filters in air-conditioning systems. A regular child’s play for the textiles to show the wealth of

possibilities. In addition, the recyclability of the materials showcased and therefore their contribution to

sustainable product solutions again was another point of interest for the professional audience.

With regard to synthetic filter media, materials for enhancing indoor air quality in heating, ventilation, and

air-conditioning were in high demand. The latest Sandler product line enAIRsave® combines excellent filtration

performance with good energy efficiency, attaining a favourable rating according to the requirements of new

testing standards.
