The System

Key Features

  1. Acoustic Performance

    Vapor®'s optional Soft Sound® backer material reduces the impact of noise from everyday annoyances like ringing, typing, and chatter resulting in a more pleasant and productive environment. The Soft Sound® backer works in concert with the design to help reduce and control reverberations leaving a lasting impression at scales ranging from assembly halls to conference rooms.

  2. Superior Flatness & Strength

    Vapor® panels are manufactured from aluminum that is on average 50% thicker than the competition, which in combination with our precision processes result in unrivaled flatness.

  3. Integrated Lighting Options

    NOWN's Vapor® line makes it easy to seamlessly add illumination and lighting effects to your projeccts, through available integrated InLine and Backlighting options.

  4. Easy Installation & Access

    Vapor® panels offer easy install, using quick torsion spring attachment across s tandard ceiling grid systems or simple wall attachment using our Vertika™ channel system.

  5. Preconfigured Solutions

    Vapor® panels are scalable, seamlessly tileable, preconfigured solutions designed with a dynamic array of criteria and effects in mind. Choose from our growing library of patterns to uniquely impact your project.

  6. Continuous Pattern Aesthetic

    Achieve uninterrupted patterning across your space. Vapor® patterns have perforations that wrap around the edges of each panel, concealing where patterns start and end.
