Vibrasto "evolution 15, 30 and 55

Stretched and anchored acoustic material

Vibrasto évolution is an acoustic covering which may be stretched and anchored into position over a wide variety of surfaces, such as walls or ceilings. Just like the human skin, Texaa®‘s Vibrasto is a composite material made up of three successive layers, with each playing their own specific role.
The epidermis, or outer layer, is formed by our sound transparent fabric Aeria*, so easy on the eye and available in a range of vibrant colours.
The dermis, or middle layer, is a thin layer of 3 mm wadding ensuring that the Aeria is totally opaque and therefore capable of hiding anything positioned behind.
The hypodermis, or lower layer, comprises the sound absorbers which make Vibrasto so efficient in terms of acoustic performance. The sound absorbers are either RI panels (impregnated glass wool) or AP foam, depending on specific situations.
Depending on the level of acoustic performance required, the thickness of the sound absorbers used in the Vibrasto varies. A thickness of either 10 mm, 25 mm or 50 mm normally suffices in ordinary situations, but greater depths are also available. It is also possible to use other sound absorbing materials if desired, such as vegetable fibre wools or recycled textiles, for example.

Product soon available in United States in Gris Brun, Nacre, Ecru, Gris argent and Gris ciel color.

Technical information

Vibrasto 15 provides a comprehensive system for solving acoustic problems in echoing spaces, for use on walls and ceilings. It comprises a highly flame resistant, non- dripping covering made of sound transparent Aeria* fabric, laminated onto wadding and stretch-fitted in front of an ultra-light sound-absorbing material. This flexible and simple solution is ideal for covering large surface areas, even curved surfaces, and delivers a perfect finish at a manageable cost.

Specification for Vibrasto 15
For walls [ceilings] we recommend the highly flame resistant, non-dripping Vibrasto 15 covering made by Texaa®, 1,500 mm wide, comprising an outer layer of sound transparent Aeria fabric laminated onto wadding and stretch-fitted in front of AP foam panels. Its absorption coefficien ɑw when fitted over concrete is 0.35 (H). The total thickness is then 15 mm.

Fitting methods
The fabric covering is installed by stretching it between battens in front of 10-mm thick panels of AP cellular foam, glued to the support surface. The total thickness is 15 mm.

Joins
Pencil-line joints are produced at the joins between adjacent lengths.
The edges of the Vibrasto fabric are inserted into U-section battens running along the length of the join. Centre-to-centre distance: 1,500 mm (except for the “Noir et blanc II” colour scheme, for which this distance is 1,400 mm).

Edging
L-shaped battens are fitted around the periphery of the clad surface
(and around door and window frames) and the edge of the Vibrasto fabric is laid into these battens.

Clad edging (for visible edging) option
Where an L-shaped batten is fitted along a visible edge, the batten can be ordered already clad with a matching fabric.

Outside corners
These corners shall be produced by stretching the covering over a corner batten provided by Texaa®.

Inside corners
These corners shall be produced as a pencil line joint.

Electrical fittings
Plug sockets, switches etc. shall stand proud from the surface by 10 mm.

Layout plan
Different batches of fabric in the same colour may show very slight variations in shade; it is therefore imperative to respect the layout plan drawn up for each wall.

Vibrasto 30 provides a comprehensive system for solving acoustic problems in echoing spaces, for use on walls and ceilings. It comprises a highly flame resistant, non-dripping covering made of sound transparent Aeria* fabric, laminated onto wadding and stretch-fitted in front of a semi-rigid sound-absorbing material. Its simplicity and value for money in terms of acoustic performance makes this the ideal product for covering large surface areas with a perfect finish at a manageable cost.

Specification for Vibrasto 30

For walls [ceilings] we recommend the highly flame resistant, non-dripping Vibrasto 30 covering made by Texaa®, 1,500 mm wide, comprising an outer layer of sound transparen Aeria fabric laminated onto wadding and stretch-fitted in front of RI panels. Its absorption coefficient ɑw when fitted over concrete

◻    with no join, by stretching the covering over a corner batten provided
by Texaa®.

Inside corners
These corners shall be produced as a pencil line joint.

Electrical fittings
Plug sockets, switches etc. shall stand proud from the surface by 25 mm.

Fitting methods

The fabric covering is installed by stretching it between battens in front of two layers of 25-mm RI panels (impregnated glass wool) fastened to the support surface. The total thickness is 55 mm.

Joins
Pencil-line joints are produced at the joins between adjacent lengths.
The edges of the Vibrasto fabric are inserted into U-section battens running along the length of the join. Centre-to-centre distance: 1,500 mm (except for the “Noir et blanc II” colour scheme, for which this distance is 1,400 mm).

Edging
L-shaped battens are fitted around the periphery of the clad surface (and around door and window frames) and the edge of the Vibrasto fabric is laid into these battens.

Clad edging (for visible edging) option
For a 55-mm thick assembly, L-shaped battens, delivered already clad with a matching fabric, are fitted along the visible edges.

Oak clad edging option
Solid oak framing elements shall be fitted to the lower part of the edging battens, into which are inserted the edges of the Vibrasto fabric covering.

Outside corners
These corners shall be produced by stretching the covering over a corner batten provided by Texaa®.

Inside corners
These corners shall be produced as a pencil line joint.

Electrical fittings
Plug sockets, switches etc. shall stand proud from the surface by 50 mm

Layout plan
Different batches of fabric in the same colour may show very slight variations
in shade; it is therefore imperative to respect the layout plan drawn up for each wall.
