Performance Space Acoustical Treatments image

Performance Space Acoustical Treatments

Acoustically tune your theater performance space with wall and ceiling panels.

Working with acousticians and architects, we use our decades of expertise to identify and help engineer the right solutions to treat any acoustical problems in your audience area: hot spots where sound concentrates, dead spots music never reaches, and flutter echoes and excessive reverberation. By using a combination of ceiling clouds and acoustical panels, we've already helped hundreds of school auditoriums and world-class concert halls. With a call to your Wenger representative, we can do the same for you.

Sound-Isolation Rooms image

Sound-Isolation Rooms - SoundLok®

Modular sound-isolation music practice rooms in a variety of sizes and configurations.

How can a student be expected to practice the flute when the sound of the trumpet next door is blasting through the walls and leaking through the vents? Or how can a French horn player improve tone when the internal acoustics in the practice room are muddy or excessively bright?

Wenger pioneered sound isolation in practice rooms, and we continue to use the most advanced technologies to set new standards.

Our modular rooms offer a clean, attractive look with closure panels for a seamless installation.
Rehearsal  image

Rehearsal - VAE®

Transport the entire classroom to a cathedral and back before the bell rings.

School auditoriums are heavily scheduled places. So trying to find time for your choral and instrumental groups to practice on stage can be difficult. The same goes when you are preparing for a special occasion in a large performance venue. Practicing in the dry environment of your rehearsal room can be limiting unless you have VAE Rehearsal.

Easing the transition from the rehearsal to the performance environment allows students to focus more on the skills and habits they've developed in rehearsal and less on the unfamiliar performance space. VAE rehearsal comes with the same capabilities as all our VAE systems and includes the ability to be programmed to simulate the acoustics of your own auditorium.

Wenger's new Virtual Acoustic Environment (VAE) technology uses highly advanced active acoustics to simulate nine different acoustic environments...all within the same rehearsal room...at the touch of a button. We can even custom program any of the nine presets to simulate other acoustic environments of your choosing.
Pre-Engineered Acoustical Doors image

Pre-Engineered Acoustical Doors

We've heard too many horror stories about poorly fitting doors and inadequate sound isolation. That's why Wenger engineers and acoustical experts have created an acoustical door that provides superior sound isolation. We've created an advanced split-frame design that accommodates virtually any wall thickness so every Wenger acoustical door fits perfectly. After all, even a small gap or imperfection can create enormous acoustical problems. Because our doors are pre-engineered, you'll be assured a high-integrity installation.
Tunable Acoustical Panels image

Tunable Acoustical Panels

The revolutionary acoustical panels that let you tune your rehearsal room for multi-use flexibility.

How do you create the optimal acoustical space for vocal and instrumental rehearsal in the same room with the same acoustical panels? Impossible until now. Wenger's new tunable panel is an innovative design that adjusts its absorption and diffusion capability to create a "flexible" room acoustically. The panel changes as quickly as you can turn a handle. Turn to the left and the panel becomes an absorber turn to the right, and it becomes a diffuser. It takes just seconds, so you can tune your room between classes or after school, or whenever your students rehearse. The exterior shape of the panel always stays the same, providing a clean, professional appearance.

Now you can turn your rehearsal room into a flexible space without sacrificing the acoustics. No more scheduling conflicts for rehearsal spaces. Have a shared rehearsal room for vocal and instrumental? Wenger's Tunable panel is the perfect solution!

After working closely with acoustical consultants, Wenger has developed an instrument storage cabinet that combines specially designed grille doors, acoustically absorptive material and reliable durability to produce storage that can help enhance the room's acoustical performance.
Music Library System image

Music Library System

It shouldn't take longer to find a piece of music than it does to play it. Our system has a high-density, roll-out design that's reliable, durable and cuts storage space nearly in half compared to regular file cabinets.

If you're an average band, orchestra or choir program with 1,000 titles, you'll need more than ten 4-drawer file cabinets that take up 13-1/2' (4 m) of wall space. But our innovative Music Library System stores that same amount of music in a single design that takes up only 5' 8" (173 cm) of wall space.
Media Storage Cabinets image

Media Storage Cabinets

When you consider just how valuable all your facility's media equipment is, it makes sense to store and secure it in a way that protects your investment. Being unable to find the proper cable, adapter or an expensive microphone when you need it is frustrating to say the least.

Wenger's fixed cabinets can help transform a chaotic storage area into one you can be proud of. Perfect for storage rooms or in-classroom lockable storage.

Fixed media cabinets come in three types: Standard, Rackmount and Organizer. Choose the type you need then add shelves, drawers and other accessories (shown below) to fully customize your cabinet(s).

As the level of technology in today's educational environments skyrockets, the need for connecting students to various media increases as well. Wenger's Mobile Media Storage Carts are rollable, lockable, portable media hubs that will get the technology where it needs to be. It has a durable worksurface on top, plenty of room for electronics inside and is easy to maneuver. Like the Wenger Fixed Media Cabinets, these come in a one or two-column configuration and are customizable with many of the accessories shown below.

Mobile media cabinets come in two types: Standard and Rackmount. Choose the type you need then add shelves, drawers and other accessories (shown below) to fully customize your cabinet(s).
