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.
An investment in Diva® acoustics will reward you the first time you hear the remarkable difference. Diva is a beautiful centerpiece for your stage that is engineered to last for years and years.Diva is also incredibly easy to use, so you can use it more often. No other acoustical shell gives you so much long-term value.
Poor acoustic venues can spoil even your finest performances. But Travelmaster™ Acoustical Shells allow you to take a familiar acoustical environment with you wherever you go. Excellent sound reflection helps musicians hear better,so tone, timing, and balance can be perfect in any environment. And, as the name suggests, Travelmaster shells travel, set up easily and store in an extremely small space.
Whether you're building a brand-new rehearsal room or need to enhance your existing space, Wenger can provide the consultation and acoustical panels to help you succeed. We design and manufacture our own highly advanced acoustical products and Wenger knows how to apply them to optimize the acoustics in your room.
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.
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.
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.
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 dynamic 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 Dynamic panel is the perfect solution!
Wenger's line of Motorized Acoustical Banners offers the benefits of variable acoustics for performance spaces,including theaters, performance halls, worship spaces, athletic venues and auditoriums.
Adding Transform Motorized Acoustical Banners to your performance space allows you to improve the audience experience during every performance. You'll never be more than a few seconds away from transforming your acoustics to best suit your next performance. Transform controls the levels of sound absorption and reflection in your performance space. Each banner includes adjustable spacing options, both for distance away from the wall and between the two fabric layers. Banners deploy quietly and quickly.

Need to have instrument storage in your rehearsal room? Here's a way to minimize the loss of cubic volume, provide sound absorption, and help eliminate flutter echo caused by direct sound reflection.
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.
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' (4115 mm) 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" (1727 mm) of wall space.
When you consider just how valuable all your facility's media equipment is, it makes sense to store and secure it in away 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 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.

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. Mobile media cabinets come in two types:Standard and Rackmount. Choose the type you need then add shelves, drawers and other accessories to fully customize your cabinet(s).
Your facilities reflect your tradition as well as your expectations for future success. The one area where this matters most, the area that impacts your players every day, is the team room. More than just a locker room, your team room needs to inspire, recruit and function.

AirPro® Lockers help create team rooms that stand apart with a durable grid design and color options. They mount to the walls and not the floor, offering thorough cleaning underneath for a sanitary team room. Integrated seats remove the need for space-consuming benches. AirPro lockers offer a level of functionality and aesthetics that simply can't be matched by press-metal lockers.
X-Carts™ are high-density storage carts that maximize your space by sliding together and apart along a fixed aluminum track.
Transforming your equipment room into an organized, clean, professional storage space is easy with GearBoss. Our rugged X-Carts are part of a smart, efficient system of storage that will save space, protect your equipment, and save you loads of time spent organizing.
