The new deal sees DIS able to print colour, imagery and special design on to acoustic fabric walls and ceiling graphic systems from German textile products firm Pongs. 

Pongs has developed a range of sound-absorbing textiles for a range of applications that are already being used by artists and printers to demonstrate the capabilities of large-format textile printing.

“Trying to make large open spaces and rooms aesthetically pleasing, whilst achieving the right acoustic performance has been a massive challenge for our customers. This new agreement offers them a perfect solution,” explains Mark Bradley, managing director of DIS.

“We are the first approved UK supplier and installer of Pongs acoustic fabrics and this will give us a massive advantage over our rivals. The technology lends itself so that any colour, image and design can be printed on to it, offering stunning sound and visual performance – the best of both worlds.”

“Talks have already begun with marketing agencies, interior designers, architects and local authorities about using the walls and ceiling systems. There are no limitations with size either, as we can print - using 3M inks – huge unlimited tiled sections.

“We can even integrate LED lighting into the systems to create ever-changing moods and stunning visual displays.”

David Purcell, sales director at DIS, adds: “A new technician has already been taken on to cope with demand and we expect further appointments once we turn interest in Pongs into concrete orders. It could be worth as much as £500,000 in the first year, with the potential for even more going forward.”

The firm has already utilised the new technology to bring a 35-metre-long wall system to Virgin Active’s Mayfair site in the coming weeks, as part of the recently secured multi-million-pound contract with the company to revamp signage and graphics across its gyms.
