ARO Baffle V1

ARO Baffle V1 works all the angles. This unexpected baffle features 100% Wool Design Felt on a thin 10mm-thick acoustic substrate which is cut and folded into a symmetrical ‘V.’ The baffle comes in customizable length and choose from over sixty colors.

And although suspension hardware is a necessity, it doesn’t need to be the center of attention. The flexible suspension and mounting options of ARO Baffle V1 are sleek and minimal while also making installation a breeze.

  • Installation Installs with suspension hardware that includes suspension cables with sliding cable grippers or sliding suspension rods. Sliding cable grippers and suspension rods may be repositioned along track in top of baffle and optional ceiling attachment options include mounting plate and ACT grid clips. Suspension cables or rods come in 3’-0” (91.4 cm) length and additional length may be available. Actual ceiling connection depends upon ceiling type and ceiling fasteners not included.
  • Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
