Overlay designed by Birsel+Seck for Herman Miller

Movable Walls

Overlay by Birsel+Seck for Herman Miller are movable walls that can be used to create freestanding rooms, give shape to open or divide areas. It can create an enclosed meeting space—complete with a door. Unveiled at NeoCon in 2018, Overlay's movable walls can be used to create free-standing rooms, give shape to open spaces or simply divide areas. A three-sided workspace can create a designated niche, or four Overlay walls can create an enclosed meeting space—complete with a door. Overlay frees up time and funds in an office renovation budget: two people can move it in two hours; and at $350 a linear sq. ft., it is half the cost of demountable walls.

Acoustic Control Meets Metal Design

GKD MetalFabrics has created its own line of aluminum-based Acoustic Mesh Panels to help control noise without compromising beauty. The new technology was developed by incorporating research findings from a number of studies and white papers. The panels incorporate a sag-free, one-inch-thick honeycomb support plate, layered with an intermediate blanket of fiber-free acoustic fleece which dampens the noise to near silent at an aw value of 0.9. Lights, downlights and sprinklers are easy to integrate within the panels and they can also be removed and refitted easily which makes it a flexible sound solution for many architectural design needs that require sound dampening.

Insulate and Innovate

Johns Manville Mineral Wool Sound and Fire Block insulation provides a powerful (and yet quiet) 2-in-1. The insulation batts are noncombustible and moisture-resistant. The high-density fibers in mineral wool help delay the spread of fire and reduce noise transfer in interior walls and between ceilings and floors. The insulation improves wall assembly STC ratings by up to 10 dB, has a melting point in excess of 2000˚F and is made of durable inorganic glass, which translates into no growth of fungi and no sustaining of vermin. JM mineral wool is also easily cut, installed and fills the entire cavity for maximum performance. It is best used in wood-stud cavities and interior walls and ceilings
