Additional information

Fabrics with sound absorbing effects

Example of a construction in applications primarily needing technical light effectiveness
(e.g. light screens and walls). The light source can be on  either side of the wall or screen.


Light transmission

The combination of high-quality technical fabrics with a special coating technology allows a specified light transmission,
light diffusion and transparency. These are so-called light-technical fabrics.
The simulator shows the different lighting effects of different fabric types.
