"The design of the atrium as well as the BASWA Phon product helped create a comfortable acoustical environment that greatly improves social interaction and overall occupant comfort. Furthermore, the overall acoustical performance within the atrium provides the Baylor Business School with the flexibility to utilize this inspirational space for a variety of function."

"For over a decade Angelini Plastering been installing acoustic plaster systems, including each of the top three brands. Aside from the outstanding performance BASWA Phon provides, even more importantly to my company, is the relationship with BASWA acoustic. They always have the first pulse on projects in my region and offer top technical support in the field. I can’t begin to express how rapidly they turn out submittals, LEED information, SDS, and color coded detailed RCPs. We feel as though we are one big team."

"Because OCP Contractors was already a Certified Installer, we were able to self-perform the work and it helped get the job awarded to OCP. We were glad we could provide the owner with an exceptional product that changed the dynamics of the space."

"The appropriate acoustical environment for speech privacy in the open office area was critical to creating a successful space for Gehry Partners’ design team. The office layout was designed without workspace dividers. Although the desks were relatively far apart, the ambient noise due to HVAC (typically offering “white noise” masking) would be very low. Speech privacy was clearly going to be an issue. Compared to the other options that were being entertained, BASWAphon had the highest sound absorption properties and offered Gehry’s team the clean, uncluttered, monolithic ceiling design they required. We were very pleased with the quality of workmanship within these areas; the open office acoustics are exceptional and we understand the users are very pleased."

"BASWAphon provided Siebein Associates with a seamless sound absorbent surface that met HOK’s design intent while offering exceptional performance which helped to reduce focused sound reflections, reduce overall reverberant noise levels and control the transmission of sounds from one level to another in the large open volume of the atrium maintaining manageable sound levels even on busy days."

"BASWAphon is a great product that allowed us to create an all-glass circular party room for 600 people where they can actually hear each other talk! The appearance of the great inverted dome is seamless. We asked for an 'impossible' blurred color transition at the edges. Developing a new spray technique to satisfy our request, BASWA acoustic's skilled Certified Installers executed our design beautifully."

"Even on the very crowded opening days and events of last week, the sound absorption worked marvelously. Bravo."
