A new acoustic system from Sto provides a solution for applications where the acoustic treatment must be applied direct onto walls and ceilings. 

Compatible with a wide range of surface coatings, the new StoSilent Direct system can be used to create both seamless and visible joint acoustic surfaces. It features sandwich construction panels made of stone wool and expanded glass granulate. These need no supporting sub-construction and can be bonded directly to a wide range of substrates. This results in a minimal reduction in headroom, while the panels still provide high levels of sound absorption at low installation heights.

Particularly well suited for use on flat ceilings or walls, the panels have a pre-applied, textured surface. This can be left as is or finished with either a StoSilent Top or StoSilent Décor M top coat, to create a variety of smooth or textured surface finishes. The panels can also be finished with a StoColor Climasan top coat, which contains a light-activated catalyst that neutralises organic odours and harmful substances in the environment.

StoSilent Distance is a suspended panel system which allows the creation of the type of flat, seamless surfaces that can bring even the most ambitious designs to life. StoSilent Distance allows seamless surfaces of up to 200 m² to be achieved on walls and ceilings which are suspended to accommodate services or reduce room height. Sto’s top coats can be used to achieve high-quality attractive finishes in white, or many different colour options. StoSilent Distance offers tremendous design flexibility, and can also be used to create sharp, consistent joints, impressive inclined planes or stunning curves.
