Draper Launches Acoustical Shading Solution

Draper has announced EchoControl, an innovative acoustical treatment that improves the acoustics within rooms by utilizing sound-absorptive materials. Draper’s EchoControl will “officially” debut at InfoComm 2017, June 14 – 16 in Orlando. 
 
Sound-absorptive methods are already used to improve a room’s acoustics, but Draper claims that with EchoControl sound reverberating off windows now can be reduced. EchoControl fabric offers a unique combination of acoustic and lighting control and comfort. Available on both motorized and manual shades, the EchoControl has a Noise Reduction Coefficient of 0.60. 
 
In addition to their sound-absorption properties, EchoControl’s window shades diffuse light, reduce glare, control solar heat gain, and reduce fading of interior furnishings. They are GREENGUARD GOLD certified so there’s no off-gassing and they are infused with Microban antimicrobial product protection.
