Feltfon Diabolo

ANGLED LINEAR FELT BEAMS for silent wave designs

Feltfon© Diabolo features beams set at various angles, creating a dynamic, undulating design reminiscent of a diabolo. These beams, with substantial depths, are constructed from a permeable felt material and include a hollow core, providing exceptional sound-dampening capabilities within a space. The demountable Capax installation system suitable for walls and ceilings, ensures durability in high-traffic environments such as schools, offices, shops, and malls. The installation profiles accommodate multiple beam widths and lets you adjust width, depth, colour, and spacing. Additionally, designers can personalize the appearance further by filling the spacings with wooden in-fill strips. As with all Gustafs products, Feltfon© Diabolo prioritizes safety, adhering to fire safety standards without the need for impregnations.
