Clearsorber Panels - Hugh Robjohn's Home Studio

Postby Paul881 » Tue Apr 20, 2021 8:29 am

I read the June 2020 article on the treatment of Hugh's home work studio with a great deal of interest and in particular, that he used Clearsorber panels to treat his windows with.

As I am nearing completion of my home studio build, I have a set of double glazed door 's and small side windows to treat along with a small Velux skylight so I'm wondering what Hugh feels about the effectiveness of this solution, did he feel that it was a cost effective and workable solution? Thanks!

Certainly workable. I didn't have any problems making a simple frame to secure the clearsorber panels in front of the windows. Fitting them to a door could be more challenging, but not hugely so.

Cost-effectiveness depends on your budget and expectations, but I'm very pleased with the improvements it brought and would use it again without hesitation.

And it was Max's suggestion to use -- he's used it a lot and is quite a fan of it, which counts for a lot too, with me at least.

Thanks Hugh, much appreciated. I have been in contact with the suppliers but they tell me that due to Brexit and C19, getting supplies of the product from France are problematic at the moment so its something that I'll keep an eye on in the coming months.

I am however going with the Camira Lucia covering for my sound panels as you have done and overall, I found your article very informative and interesting.
