  • "Accurate Acoustical has nothing but good things to say about BASWAphon. The installation training and technical support was excellent. It was our first time using BASWA and our installers with your field training did a great job. The project turned out great."

    Jerry O’Keefe, Project Manger, Accurate Acoustical, Inc.

  • "BASWA has the very finest technical service department of any of the many products we install… and I’m not just talking about acoustical plaster, but any plaster system. "

    Terry Roberts, Project Manager, Triangle Plastering

  • "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."

    Gary Siebein, Senior Principal Consultant, Siebein Associates, Inc.

  • "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."

    Sara Capels, Principal, Capels Jefferson Architects PC
    Queens Theater in the Park in Corona, NY

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