Acoustic Mastery,
Reshaped.

For the first time, a timber beam is capable of efficiently absorbing sound and in the process, is changing the shape of acoustic possibilities.

Introducing Sero Beams—the latest product to reflect SoundPly’s tradition of first-of-its-kind acoustic solutions. With even more absorptive surface area than a baffle, Sero provides the unmistakable beauty of real wood. It’s generating buzz by combining SoundPly’s unmatched performance with an exciting, new acoustic solution.

BeamExplodedDiagram-2003

Defining and pioneering the future of acoustic ceiling beams, Sero Acoustic Beams are packed with patented acoustic technology and patent-pending composite material technology.

Quiet on Every Side.

Sero Beams absorb sound on three sides – a remarkable facet of their shape that increases their absorptive area and effectiveness. Do you have an application where four sides of the beam are exposed? We’ve got it covered (literally). There’s an option for a finished fourth side, too.

Furthermore, by utilizing SoundPly’s MicroPerfection® Technology, Sero Acoustic Beams achieve the highest NRC rating among acoustic products. This pioneering method of acoustic control means sound absorption actually increases as noise levels rise. The beams can be easily incorporated with other SoundPly ceiling products for additional design options, as well.

A Beam of Lightness.

Sero opens up exciting new possibilities. Our patented SP Core Technology™  means Sero Beams are stronger, while weighing significantly less than traditional lumber beams. Because they’re lightweight and dimensionally stable, they can be mounted directly to a ceiling, suspended by cables, or even attached to a grid.

In addition, Sero’s box construction not only enhances its strength and reduces its weight, it also creates new potential for design integration. Want to mask AV equipment or disguise girders and utilities? Sero Beams can be used as a sound-absorbent, acoustic shell – cleverly camouflaging unwanted elements. They can also be easily customized and integrated with lighting, as well! 

With Sero Beams, your options for acoustic solutions just keep looking up.
