Alappuzha, Feb 4: A research institute here will make coir-based acoustic panels.
The National Coir Research and Management Institute (NCRMI) in association with the Institute of Indian Interior Designers (IIID) has taken up the project.
The coir-based panel has more advantages compared to other panels because it is moth proof, eco-friendly and can be given any shape.
NCRMI director K.R. Anil said the IIID would develop and supervise the project which aims to engineer and design a comprehensive system covering not just acoustic panels but also a complete system from fixing to designing various interior spaces.
“We are hoping to complete the project in six months. We have carried out several rounds of experiments. The actual cost factor will be worked out once we finish the project,” he said.
