The Whisperwave® Ribbon Sound Baffle allows you to unleash your creativity while reducing noise and reverberation. Add dimension and acoustical control right where you need it the most with Whisperwave™ Ribbons. Whisperwave Ribbons are acoustical sound baffles suspended from ceiling-mounted cables using supplied corkscrew hangers. They may be hung as high or as low as necessary to avoid obstacles in the ceiling, work around HVAC or achieve a particular design. Avoid hanging baffles more than 10 feet below the ceiling. Made from Class 1 fire-rated melamine foam, Whisperwave® products are offered in standard and custom sizes and curve patterns. Whisperwave® products are lightweight and easy to install. Whisperwave® products are available in natural white and grey or can be HPC Coated (see HPC color chart).

  • Use clean gloves to prevent soiling material.
  • Melamine foam is fragile and should be handled with care.
  • Do not install material of unacceptable quality.

    Looks good and did a reasonably good job. It controlled the echo reverberations in the Yoga Lobby that has 14′ ceilings and solid surfaces.

    Used product to control echo in office space.
