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.
Soft drink and detergent bottles are identified and collected from consumers
Contaminants like lids and sticky labels are removed. Bottles are chipped into tiny pellets
Pellets are washed and sanitised
Pellets and colour are fed through a sophisticated shower-rose device, known as a spinneret
Cold air fans set the fine fibres extruded from the spinneret
Fibres are drawn, cut and blended into a web
Fibre web is compressed into panels and cut ready for use
