GIK Tri Traps in Tympani listening RmMany studios, home theaters and listening rooms make do with foam wedges in corners which are unattractive and far less efficient in sound wave absorption than acoustic panels. Our dedicated sound engineers have developed a more attractive and effective product – the GIK Acoustics TRI-TRAP Corner Bass Trap.

The Tri-Trap is one of our most effective bass traps and takes up far less floor space. Constructed with a solid core of absorption material, the Tri-Trap is a freestanding triangular prism able to hold up to 22.5 kgs in weight. The Tri-Trap’s clean, professional design means it does not have to be mounted to the wall or corners and is stackable for floor-to-ceiling coverage.

GIK Acoustics Tri Trap Bass trapThe Tri-Trap, like all GIK Acoustics bass traps, was lab tested at the prestigious Riverbank Acoustical Laboratory and showed to have true effects at 50Hz and below. The Tri-Trap has been effectively designed to absorb more low end, but also does an excellent job of absorbing the high end, creating smooth sound absorption from 50 Hz to 5000 Hz. Installing our Tri-Traps will result in a beautifully balanced room that will suit even the most critical listener.  Click HERE to see the Tri-Trap Product Video.

WANT TO ADD BUILT-IN SCATTERING TO YOUR PANELS?

Cross section illustrates how the Scatter Plate is built-in behind the fabric.

Broadband treatments offer great performance with an attractive price and when coupled with diffusion and scattering, can give your room a completely balanced sound throughout, without over-dampening high frequencies.

The GIK Acoustics built-in Scatter Plate option allows even decay time from low to high frequencies while providing the necessary space for absorption to flatten the frequency response. Read more about the new GIK Acoustics Scatter Plate here.

After adding GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Trap with FlexRange Technology to your cart, you can then select Scatter Plate from the Diffusion Products menu and have them built into your 244 Bass Trap with FlexRange Technology for only £37.50 Exc VAT/£45.00 Inc VAT per panel.

Mounting a Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap

The GIK Acoustics Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap is intended to be freestanding or stacked floor-to-ceiling.  However, if you wish to mount a Tri-Trap in a wall-to-wall corner, we recommend using L brackets on the side walls so the Tri-Trap sits like a shelf.  The Tri-Trap can also be mounted in the wall-to-ceiling corners using four L brackets: two placed on the ceiling and two placed on the wall to hold the Tri-Trap into place.  See the following examples in composer/producer Mike Plas's studio. (See the full spotlight on Mike's studio here.)

There's a difference between a GIK Acoustics product and all others on the market.  We separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.

QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:

GIK Acoustics Bright White and Off White sqGIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system. Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted with quality insulation material, fabrics and hardwood plywoods.  We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics - not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship's engine room. We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods - not cheap imports - to construct our frames.  The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability.  Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won't shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber.  To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics - from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics. Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products.  The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.
