Our environmental focus started back with the development of PET acoustic panels as a non-toxic, non-irritant, long-lasting alternative to traditional acoustic treatment.  

 

It now extends to the way we operate the business, our manufacturing process and the way we help customers create safer, less damaging acoustic environments.

All of our products are made from 100% recycled and recyclable PET or Polyester fibre (a minimum of 65% post consumer waste). GB Acoustics products are safe and easy to work with, they will not cause irritation when touched and are chemical free – no pesticides, insecticides and formaldehyde. 

Manufacturing Process

  1. Soft drink and detergent bottles are identified and collected from consumers

  2. Contaminants like lids and sticky labels are removed. Bottles are chipped into tiny pellets

  3. Pellets are washed and sanitised

  4. Pellets and colour are fed through a sophisticated shower-rose device, known as a spinneret

  5. Cold air fans set the fine fibres extruded from the spinneret

  6. Fibres are drawn, cut and blended into a web

  7. Fibre web is compressed into panels and cut ready for use
