Recyclable Calando Panels Create a more Comfortable Café Environment

How Avenue helped Pump Coffee entice customers to return

A local favourite, Pump Coffee in Toowoomba proudly state that, “If ‘coffee & cake’ is your preference, then our sweets cabinet is for you!” Naturally, they want their customers to have a warm and friendly experience when visiting them to enjoy tasty food at a reasonable price. Yet they faced a challenge.

The challenge

Many of the café’s older customers struggled with the level of reverberation in the space, to the point where many stopped frequenting the venue as it was simply too hard for them to hear.

Clearly Pump Coffee needed a solution for this reverberation concern which would improve the venue’s comfort and prompt customers to return.

The Avenue Solution

Thanks to Avenue Interior Systems’ expertise in designing acoustic solutions, we were able to deliver the perfect solution for Pump Coffee. We recommended and installed our premium 100% recyclable Calando Panels on the café’s ceiling and one wall to reduce the excess noise.

Made from 100% recyclable polyester, our Calando Panel is lightweight, semi-rigid, impact-resistant and incredibly durable. These qualities ensure it offers high levels of sound absorption, while offering aesthetic appeal for any hospitality application.

The Avenue team made sure to design a solution where the white ceiling panels blended into the ceiling. By contrast, the wall panels were brown to match the café’s couches and create a decorative statement.

Calando Panels are our premium sound solution for both wall and ceiling applications. They are engineered for superior sound absorption and balanced acoustic design. Avenue can provide a custom design to suit your specific needs, including an image or design as a detail on the acoustic panel.
