Sign Up Systems becomes accredited supplier of Pongs’ acoustic solutions
Nottingham based Sign Up Systems has become an accredited installer and solutions provider for the Pongs Descor textile architecture system. It will now offer acoustic solutions and leverage the growing interest in interior textile architecture both for the corporate and consumer market.
‘We see Descor as an enhancement to our business. It allows us to offer our existing exhibitions and events customers new applications. It is also opening up possibilities and potential partnerships in non traditional sectors, which is very encouraging,’ said Jon Bromhead, owner and managing director of Sign Up Systems.
Sign Up Systems is currently in talks with a well known hi-fi, home cinema and TV retailer to provide a properly managed sound environment that reduces reverberation and excessive noise issues for a superior home cinema experience.
‘To start with, we are talking about creating cinema rooms with night starscape ceilings, and metre square acoustic panels that can be fitted onto the wall to bounce the sound. It may be that customers will want to create their own bespoke cinema room, and Pongs’ materials allows us to print stunning bespoke walls, ceilings and furniture for these home entertainment rooms,’ said Jon.
Sign Up Systems uses all Pongs’ acoustic textiles including Descor Premium Acoustic, a sound absorbing fabric that is ideal for floors and ceilings. Silencio, is an acoustic fabric with a 3D honeycomb structure perfect for creating room in room concepts. Akustiko is perfect for sound optimised interior décor, highly suited for curtains, ceiling sails, and covering furniture with a sound absorbing function.
‘For home working or open plan offices, a member of staff can go into a sound booth, that has professional cameras set up for a Teams or video call. You can have successful, more professional remote board or international meetings with other executives in that sort of environment. People really have a need for this,’ explained Jon.
Jon was looking to launch its acoustic solutions over a year ago, but due to the Pandemic had to put this on the backburner. However, the company has been busy creating an acoustic showcase at its premises, optimistic that once restrictions are lifted, it can start to engage with potential new and existing customers in person.
He founded Sign Up Systems in 2006 as a graphic tensioning supplier – convinced that this would be the route for displaying digital wide format graphics. The company quickly grew to include design, printing, manufacture, installation, distribution, maintenance, de-installation and storage to its in-house services.
