Frieze solutions - a sound absorbing margin

Ecophon Focus Frieze - a sound-absorbing frieze solution. Ideas & Solutions no 1.

Focus frieze trim is a new addition to the Ecophon frieze solutions. The product is used to create an interface between wall and suspended ceiling without any visible sections. The sound absorbers next to the walls in a room are of extra significance in terms of preventing unwanted sound reflections. Focus frieze not only provides a solution for this problem but also creates a uniform ceiling surface in the form of Ecophon’s unique ceiling treatment - Akutex T.

There are two possible methods for connection to the wall.

1. If the total construction height is 170 mm or more, and no obstacles prevent screw fixing, the frieze bracket can be used. For detailed information please check T1_E110 and IG110.
2. If the height is less than 170 mm and there is no access above the panel, use frieze trim according to T1_E113 and IG110.
A similar solution is available for Access frieze, see IG114.
