Akustak®, by Mute Group, is a British made, acoustic modular wall system; granted a UK patent in 2021.
Designed for materials optimisation and off-site construction, Akustak® minimises waste, during manufacture and installation, whilst its unique demountable form, facilitates reuse and recovery.
In recognition of its sustainability credentials, Akustak® has been selected for growth & scale support, from the UK Government’s Innovate UK EDGE, alongside Innovative Start-up Membership, by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC). Akustak® is also a valued member of the Association of Sustainable Building Products (ASBP).
Prefabricated and portable, Akustak® accelerates construction timescales, with configurations installed from 15 m2 / per hour, ready for plastering and/or decoration, whilst the Forest and Chroma range come pre-finished; eliminating the need for wet trades.
