Specialist Products:

Knauf AMF SOUNDMOSAIC is a flat-panel (membrane) loudspeaker in a modular ceiling format, working on the principle of wave conversion. This means the ceiling tile itself is the loudspeaker, the oscillation being produced by a module on the reverse of the tile. As a result the ceiling tile looks identical to the rest of the ceiling. Knauf AMF SOUNDMOSAIC is available in most Thermatex face patterns.

Knauf AMF Beamex system harmonises technology and aesthetics by providing invisible installation of projectors within a room. Available in different decorative finishes.

Knauf AMF light boxes installed over recessed modular light fittings offer continuation of fire resistance ensuring fire protection of the ceiling is not compromised. Penetrations in ceilings can also cause a reduction in room-to-room sound attenuation. With an AMF Fire-Resistant Light Box this loss of performance is minimized.
