For those seeking to create a smooth-edged, sophisticated and elegant design interior with the inclusion of acoustic sound absorption materials - look no further than our Popped Note™. There are two in-house stock designs of a rounded finish or a squared finish, with the option to create bespoke designs. Each Popped Note™ uses our Stand-off bolts which have a beautifully polished chrome finish that is well engineered and easy to fit. These bolts help to provide an isolation gap behind the Popped Note™ suspending it away from the wall or ceiling exposing more its available surface area and improving its acoustic performance for the reduction of reverberation. Popped Note™ falls into the Class A Absorption rating.
Sometimes all that is needed is a little inspiration to spark to most ambitious of ideas, a simple viewing of what is possible with our Popped Note™ and other designs in our Note™ will often change even the most reserved of customers looking at sound absorption and turn heads to what else is out there! We have chosen our presentation of Popped Note™ installed in Michelin Star restaurant - The Man Behind The Curtain to showcase a sample of what is out there. Maybe there is something you like but would like to alter slightly, perhaps there is something you dislike or the perfect design, but all you want is a different colour - whatever it is, we can help you narrow your options and discuss them with you!
From interior designers looking to create holistic atmospheres that focus on creating a positive environment through design to simple design ideas, both drawn in mind or sketched - we want to hear them, no matter how complex!
Our in-house design team can help you every step of the way by bringing them to the physical world as we look at how each idea is best structured and how it will fit together,
Then we create visualisations of each space (both existing spaces or new spaces alongside the architect’s visualisation) to see how they will look in placement. We then send this off to our cutting team who have state-of-the-art precision cutting tools - and then finally we send these flat packed to your installation team, or our installation team if you’re looking for the whole package.
We offer a bespoke product tailoring for our Popped Note™ Range with our in-house designer to help cater to your requirements - do contact us on 01937 588 226 today to discuss.
If you have entered the world of sound and acoustics, you will have seen soundproofing, sound transmission, reverberation, reverb and other key phrases that can often become confusing or frustrating when perhaps there isn’t a clear answer. Sound Transmission is when a sound passes through a partition: such as a wall, floor or ceiling - and requires soundproofing through heavy materials to reduce its transfer. Reverb or Reverberation is when a sound is trapped in a single space and bounces off hard reflective surfaces like concrete, brick or windows, and this requires sound absorption materials and the introduction of soft furnishing to reduce.
Reverberation can also be affected by a room's geometry and size, and will often require considering these in addition to its reflective surfaces. When we dig a little into reverb, you will find terminology, perhaps mathematic equations and names of experts and scientists you have never heard of - and in our information age, most seek to understand a little more background of what we are trying to solve. We have put together a brief explanation of reverberation to help cover the standard terminology that often accompanies it and describe the effects of excessive reverb inappropriate places which above tolerable levels can disrupt adequate levels of communication. The adverse effects of reverberation in these environments is its detrimental impact found in educational settings and the critical listening and certain performance spaces. We aim to update this with new research and provide blogs on areas revolving around reverberation. Click on the icon below to read more!
Maybe the imagery you have chosen is synergic with your brand, or perhaps it is just a piece of art that you cherish every day - for whatever the setting, it aims to serve as an art form that has a high acoustic performance. It applies to almost any internal space, from the workplace to the home, from coffee shop to a Michelin star restaurant - Printed Note™ is a beautiful choice.
If you are looking to revivify your space with the addition of Popped Note™, both acoustically and visually, to improve speech intelligibility or the general atmosphere by cutting down the feeling of a spacious environment, whether it is in a café, a Michelin Star restaurant or the workplace. Popped Note™ is suitable for almost any internal design and will be an essential addition to serve both increasing the visual presentation of a room and adding sound absorptive materials.
Each Popped Note™ is precision cut to provide a stunning level of consistency, and for ease of fitting, it arrived flat packed with stand-off bolts and instructions for fitting - that is if you fancy yourself a DIY enthusiast, if not we have an installation team happy to help put these in place for you!

Depending on the size of your chosen space, its geometry and its material composition - these can all have an effect on the overall quantity required and whether additional approaches to sound absorption are necessary, for example, the introduction of Soft Note™ to cover mostly uncovered wall or ceiling areas by directly fitting to each surface. It is not only these structural properties that are all something to factor into the acoustic design, but also the proposed activities in the space - for there are speech intelligibility targets and recommendations that will likely follow for each. Educational institutions require very high levels of speech intelligibility to where reverberation needs to be very low for the adequate understanding of speech to where learning and communication are not impaired. In short, there is no immediate answer to these particular questions without knowing the following:
First we aim to create an estimated acoustic modelling of the room or look to carry out an Acoustic Test, we then we look at required levels alongside your budget in mind for introducing Popped Note™ to your space and discussing visual requirements to how you would like each Note™ to appear in terms of colour scheme and their arrangement.
Popped Note™ is not suited for soundproofing for it is a lightweight material with a fibrous composition - perfect for sound absorption and the reduction of echo and reverberation - but not for reducing noise transfer from room to room. The majority of cases do require both to work in harmony for best sound control, workplace environments to where people are spending increasing amounts of time in need an excellent soundscape to both works collaboratively, and working individually without their concentration being disrupted by overhearing conversations or the photocopier.
Popped Note™ is made from 100% Polyester Fibres making it safe for almost any internal application for there are not exposed irritants or loose fibres - of this 65% comes from Post Consumer Recycled Content with 35% from Pre Consumer Recycled PET fibres.

Popped Note™ is suitable for installation in restaurant and café environments - minimal design approaches of new and the renovating of old establishments mean that the carpets, curtains and all soft furnishing except seatings are torn out, exposed brickwork and concrete flooring are on show all to create the free-flowing environment. It is common now to also find restaurants opening their kitchens to be open-plan to develop a more holistic experience by allowing customers to see the chef and their team at work, and it certainly does make for a lively and inclusive environment.
Popped Note™ makes use of our highly engineered, easy to fit and sleek stand-off bolts, each panel design comes with adequate bolts and instructions of how to install each.
If you have an idea of altering our stock designs or aiming for something entirely new, perhaps you have a museum that wants to cut shapes of Dinosaur shapes into them, or something equally as entertaining! But it is your creativity we can help nurture by providing you with the tools of our ever helpful in-house design team to put them together and create a visualisation of them in placement in both proposed or existing spaces.
