Close Up: GIK Acoustics

Top Choice in Acoustic Treatments: Combining his experiences as a recording studio owner with his background in manufacturing, Glenn Kuras launched his Atlanta-based company GIK Acoustics because he found that the acoustic treatment products on the market at the time simply were not effective. Now treating over 5,000 rooms worldwide every year, GIK Acoustics-U.S.A. and GIK Acoustics-Europe (based in Bradford, U.K.) manufacture and sell bass traps, acoustic panels and diffusors direct to customers around the world. Dollar for dollar, GIK Acoustics’ products absorb more sabins (sound) than any other product on the market. GIK Acoustics is a top choice in acoustic treatments for recording studios, listening rooms, home theatres, churches, restaurants and live auditoriums. The company works with clients from even before they make their purchases and provides them with a professional design and support staff to achieve a quality acoustic space.

Close Up: GIK AcousticsU.S. Patent for Acoustic Treatment Design: In 2015, GIK Acoustics received a utility patent for its unique proprietary design of its acoustic absorbers. The patent covers the design and construction of its flagship products, including the 242 Acoustic Panels, a redesign of the original 244 Bass Traps and Monster Bass Traps, the latter two featuring FlexRange Technology. Design begins with a two-frame system that allows low-end frequency waves to be absorbed from the sides and back while the professionally constructed frame maintains a crisp, sharp edge. The design provides a built-in air gap, which not only increases low end absorption, but allows the panel to hang truly flush on the wall using an integrated wire on the back. GIK Acoustics recently debuted its Alpha Series, which is changing the face of acoustic panels and bass traps by combining absorption with diffusion.

Greensafe and Class A Fire Rating: All GIK Acoustics products are Greensafe, which means they use formaldehyde-free, soy-based adhesive, 100% North American made wood and sound absorption insulation with ECOSE® Technology. The products also carry a Class A fire rating, the highest safety designation possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.
