Kirei , a provider of eco-friendly design materials interiors, announced the launch of the Air Baffle: an acoustic ceiling baffle inspired by the clean, modern lines of the Nike Air Max and created from recycled shoes and water bottles.
Created from 12mm EchoPanel®, Air Baffle comes in 40”, 48”, 72”, or 96” lengths in virtually any of EchoPanel’s 33 color options. The ceiling baffle comes fully enclosed or with the choice of a brief or long window. The windows are 3mm thick in a matte finish, made out of Class A fire-rated PETG (specially formulated co-polyester resin). The plastic has chemical resistance and is GREENGUARD indoor quality of air certified. In addition, it contains 40% pre-consumer recycled content, is 100% recyclable, and qualifies for LEED MR Credit 4 and IEQ Credit 8/1 & 8.2 (daylight and views). The ceiling baffles are shipped prepared to install using suspension cables and mounting hardware.
The Air Baffle is filled up with post-consumer textile fluff from Nike Grind, a worldwide sustainability program that helps transform manufacturing scrap and end-of-life shoes into recycled Nike Grind Materials. For three decades nearly, Nike has been incorporating Nike Grind materials into product design, retail spaces and workplace environments at Nike World Headquarters and around the world. From furniture to running tracks, skateboards to space shuttles – innovation reaches the center of the Nike Grind program. 130 million pounds of Nike Grind have already been recycled into partners’ products since 1992.
