The STAS Acoustic Coil Spring, when used with a STAS suspension set, offers a streamlined and secure method for hanging acoustic panels. This guide will walk you through the steps to hang acoustic panels using the STAS Acoustic Coil Spring and suspension sets, ensuring a seamless and efficient installation.

Why Use STAS Acoustic Coil Spring with Suspension Sets?

The STAS Acoustic Coil Spring, combined with a STAS suspension set, is designed to simplify the hanging process, providing:

  • Easy Installation: Simplifies the process with minimal tools.

Tools and Materials Needed

Before starting the installation, gather the following tools and materials:

  • STAS Acoustic Coil Spring
  • STAS suspension set
  • Acoustic panels
  • Measuring tape
  • Level
  • Pencil or marker
  • Screwdriver or drill (if necessary)

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

1. Measure and Mark the Placement

Determine the desired location for your acoustic panels. Use a measuring tape to mark the exact spots on the wall or ceiling where the panels will hang. Use a level to ensure your markings are straight, providing a professional and aesthetically pleasing look.

2. Install the STAS Suspension Set

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to mount the STAS suspension set at the marked locations. Ensure the suspension set is firmly attached, capable of supporting the weight of the acoustic panels.

3. Attach the STAS Acoustic Coil Spring

Attach the STAS Acoustic Coil Spring to the suspension set. The coil spring mechanism allows for easy attachment and adjustment. Ensure the coil spring is securely fastened to the suspension set.

4. Hang the Acoustic Panels

Once the coil spring is in place, attach the acoustic panels. The coil spring securely holds the panels, preventing any movement or slippage. Adjust the panels to ensure they are level and aligned with your markings.

5. Fine-Tune the Positioning

Step back and check the overall alignment and positioning of the panels. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal acoustic performance and visual appeal. The adjustable nature of the STAS Acoustic Coil Spring allows you to easily reposition the panels as needed.

Tips for Optimal Acoustic Performance

  • Panel Spacing: Ensure panels are evenly spaced for uniform sound absorption.
  • Height Placement: Place panels at ear level for effective sound control in seated areas.
  • Wall Coverage: Cover at least 20-30% of the wall surface for noticeable improvements in sound quality.

Maintenance and Adjustments

  • Regular Checks: Periodically check the stability of the panels and the coil spring attachment.
  • Repositioning: Easily adjust the position of the panels as room acoustics or layout changes.
  • Cleaning: Clean the panels according to the manufacturer's instructions to maintain their appearance and performance.
