Fräsch Launches FAZR Linear Wood Acoustic Ceiling Solution

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas, April 22, 2024 — Fräsch, a Catalyst Acoustics Group company specializing in innovative acoustical design and sustainable solutions, presents FAZR, a new acoustic ceiling product inspired by the linear appearance of phasers (same pronunciation) from classic works of science fiction. FAZR consists of 9mm PET dovetail channels that clip onto the standard Rockfon® Symmetrical carrier system, mimicking the linear metal ceiling look but with all the benefits of acoustical PET felt including easy installation, cost savings, and enhanced environmental attributes. 

FAZR’s patent-pending design locks PET slats into the double-hooked Rockfon® carrier for secure, stable, and impact-proof ceiling coverage. The visual created by FAZR is an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the traditional tile-like T-grid ceiling. The easy-to-install closed-plenum solution is ideal for large-scale applications like airports, transit facilities, retail spaces, conference centers, offices, education settings, lobbies, building entrances, and more.  

The convenient above-plenum accessibility offered by FAZR's removable individual slats makes this a dynamic ceiling solution. Field cuts can be made around ceiling obstacles such as sprinklers, vents, lights, and audio components using off-the-shelf tools like a jig saw with a non-serrated blade, speed square, straight edge, circle template, or utility knife.   

FAZR is offered in two different channel widths, 6” slat with 2” filler or 10” slat with 4” filler. In addition, customers can choose between two different reveals: flush filler or recessed filler. The filler channel can also be left off altogether for semi-open plenum applications. Rockfon® carrier components are stocked at Fräsch and available to ship with all product orders. These include the 12-foot symmetrical carrier, 24”/36”/50” stabilizer bar, and the carrier splice. If metal trim is desired, it is available from Rockfon® to achieve an exposed perimeter.  

“We’re excited to deliver another acoustic solution to the market that checks all the boxes when it comes to benefits offered by PET while also integrating the trusted Rockfon® system,” said Gary Nightingale, Fräsch founder and president. “We’re seeing great response already and we can’t wait to hear feedback from the A+D market.” 

FAZR’s PET components are offered in all 36 colors as well as printed wood grain from Fräsch’s color catalog. These PET slats can also be pattern-cut for a customized look. To learn more about FAZR and Fräsch’s full suite of acoustic offerings, please visit
