CAS Rooms provide an innovative textile room system allowing the design of office areas – quick, simple and flexible. Open-plan areas like central zones are restructured and acoustically optimised with CAS Rooms. Unlike inflexible zoning concepts, the modular system provides unique design scope. In new buildings as well as in existing office areas, versatile configurations are possible according to requirements: from modules for effective screening and zoning of workstations through to complete rooms for almost all communication and work situations. And all that can be achieved with exceptional design and comfort: the acoustically effective product structure efficiently reduces the noise level; high-quality textile surfaces generate a welcoming and inspiring ambience. CAS Rooms offer room for focused working on one’s own and cross-cutting teamwork, for confidential meetings and relaxed talks.
Without any great effort, CAS Rooms can be expanded or adapted to changed conditions. The CAS Rooms system is based on 27 modules and three connection types allowing the combination of varied configurations. The three fabric collections Lain, Crep and Dubl from the Carpet Concept Acoustic System CAS offering a total of 63 colours are available for the design of the textile surfaces. Additionally, door and wall elements made of glass provide for openness and transparency. Owing to the modular structure, the freestanding room system can be assembled and dismantled or adapted to new requirements in a short period of time.
The Carpet Concept Acoustic System, CAS, is a comprehensive aesthetic and functional spatial concept. CAS Carpets, Objects and Materials transform floors into acoustic performers for outstanding spatial comfort. CAS Carpets are acoustically effective carpets whose backs are coated with a specially developed membrane layer as well as felts of different thicknesses. They act as strong absorbers for medium and high frequencies and achieve maximum sound absorption in the frequency range that is especially important when it comes to speech. CAS Objects are high-performance sound-absorbing panels for walls, ceilings and room dividers. CAS Material is used on surfaces or integrated in furniture. The material with a depth of approx. nine millimetres is laminated with a choice of CAS Textiles fabrics. CAS Rooms extends the Carpet Concept Acoustic System by versatile elements for the shielding of workplaces or the design of separate rooms.
