Akustak® is a British made, acoustic modular wall system; granted a UK patent in 2021.
Designed for materials optimisation and off-site construction, Akustak® minimises waste, during manufacture and installation, whilst its unique demountable form, facilitates reuse and recovery.
Prefabricated and portable, Akustak® accelerates construction timescales, with configurations installed from 15 m2 / per hour, ready for plastering and/or decoration, whilst the Forest and Chroma range come pre-finished; eliminating the need for wet trades.
Akustak® has been laboratory tested for fire safety (BS EN ISO 1364-1) and resistance to sound (BS EN ISO 10140-2 & 717-1), surpassing Building Regulations – Part B and E.
Modules are manufactured in one size (670 mm x 1200 mm) and are formed, entirely, of parts ‘dimensionally coordinated’ with universal sheet/slab sizes. As such, they suit mass production, facilitated by two fully equipped, UK-based production lines.
Because Akustak® is patent protected within the UK, this prevents dilution of market share from copycat manufacturers and suppliers, whilst the option to expand through licensing can be pursued, for more rapid growth.
What encouraged you to become a member of ASBP?
Akustak® was designed and developed in direct response to the burgeoning levels of waste within the construction industry. Innovate UK recently published a statistic, claiming that 13% of all materials delivered to construction sites, end up in landfill, without being used. It is well documented, across the construction industry, that off-site construction has the capacity to substantively address this problem.
Becoming a member of the ASBP provides two crucial opportunities:
- Engaging with and learning from an internationally respected association, that’s driving the sustainability agenda within our sector, and, in so doing, ensuring that Akustak® adapts and develops accordingly.
- Introducing Akustak® to a potential client base, that’s receptive to updating archaic and innately wasteful construction methodologies.
