Ecophon Akusto™ Wall C Extra Bass is an innovative new sound-absorbent panel from Saint-Gobain Ecophon.
This panel excels at low-frequency sound absorption. Low frequencies help the buildup of noise in many environments including workplaces, schools and healthcare facilities. This 80mm thick panel catches the lows while maintaining a slim look thanks to a shadow profile which gives the panel a visible edge of only 40mm. This panel also functions as a pin board and retains its acoustic properties when used as such.
The panels are made from 60% recycled content and are fully recyclable. Available in a variety of colours that allude to flavours, surface options include a smooth, textured surface (Texona) and a surface with high cleanability (Akutex FT).
Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort and French VOC A certification for indoor air quality have fully accredited this product.

Akusto Wall C Extra Bass has uniquely high-performing absorption capabilities at low frequencies. A central challenge with high-frequency absorption is to reduce the thickness of the absorber while maintaining the low-frequency absorbing characteristics, which has been achieved in this panel at a thickness of only 80mm. Using a special “shadow” profile, the panel only has a visible edge of 40mm.
This panel is made of 60% recycled materials and has a C02 footprint of 10.4-10.8 kg equivalent/m2 in life-cycle stages A1 to C4, in conformity with ISO 14025 / EN 15804.
For projects where environmental excellence is a priority, Ecophon offers you the Plant option, specifically designed to maximise the contribution of the ceiling to green building certification schemes. Our Plant panel range features bio-based materials, an industry-low CO2 footprint and the lowest indoor air emissions, with the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certification.
The basic rule is that no load should be supported by the wall panels. Additional loads (lighting, ventilation, etc.) should be supported by their suspension system as recommended by the manufacturer, or suspended directly below the high (support) floor.
