The Octave line was recently introduced to the US market earlier this year (branded as Sinfonia across Europe). This premium line addresses acoustically challenging spaces providing the flexibility to integrate tiles seamlessly for the desired acoustical outcome. Manufactured with high-quality mineral wool direct from the Odenwald Mountains in Germany, the Octave Line represents the peak of acoustics, durability and design of the OWAlifetime Collection.
OWA’s Octave Line is the pinnacle of acoustical precision and interior design. These fleece-laminated mineral wool ceiling tiles feature six different acoustical variations, each one coupled with a sleek, monolithic surface and a rich paint finish. Depending on ultimate room use, local codes and sustainability requirements, anyone of these six acoustical variations can be utilized, even within the same space, while maintaining the seamless finish desired in many premium design applications.
The acoustical engineering and precision incorporated into the Octave line allows for high versatility to solve almost any acoustical challenge. Whether your space calls for high absorption levels, excellent sound reducing properties, or a blend between the two, the Octave Line has a product to fit your need. Combined with consistently beautiful designs, OWA is proud to provide freedom from both a technical and design standpoint.
Octave 90 offers the highest level of sound absorption within the Octave range. The Class-A absorption value of 0.90 (via ASTM C423) renders this one of the highest absorbing mineral fiber products on the market today. Achieve your 0.90 NRC requirement while maintaining the high-quality materials and consistent cuts of OWA’s mineral wool products. Octave 90 is perfect for areas requiring high levels of focus, minimal reverberation times and reduced stress levels.
Applications include: hospitals, private offices, conference rooms, auditoriums, reception areas, class rooms
Octave 80 High CAC is the universal ceiling tile within the premium Octave Line. Thanks to a unique combination of excellent sound absorption (0.80 NRC) and high sound reduction (up to 37 dB), Octave 80 ensures perfectly balanced acoustics both within and between rooms. Octave 80 is a perfect solution for areas that call for a high absorption level, but walls extend only to the suspended ceiling, leaving a shared plenum space between two adjoining areas.
Applications include: meeting rooms, open-plan offices, open learning and working environments.
Octave 70 High CAC was designed for areas where privacy is crucial. The impressive makeup of Octave 70 allows outstanding sound reduction performance, featuring CAC levels up to 40 dB to ensure protection from one room to the next. The 0.70 NRC level helps to reduce reverberation times and contribute to enhanced room acoustics, making Octave 70 an excellent option for adjacent rooms.
Applications include: private offices, management rooms
Octave 85, the signature Octave product, is the perfect all-rounder, suitable for a wide range of room types and applications. Featuring a highly absorbent NRC level of 0.85 and CAC properties up to 28 dB, highly effective against noise radiating from infrastructure residing in the plenum space, these ceiling tiles provide an excellent level of versatility.
Humancare hygienic finish is available for tiles throughout the Octave Line. Maintaining a healthy space starts with choosing the right materials. OWA’s Humancare finish, compliant with ISO level 4 Cleanroom Class standards (the strictest found in the healthcare industry), prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi, germs, Noro viruses and MRSA pathogens. Combined with the seamless surface seen on each one of OWA’s Octave tiles and the excellent acoustical properties, these products are the perfect solution in keeping workers healthy and happy.
