K-13 Accomplishes Thermal and Acoustical Control for Fairweather Cider Co.

Fairweather Cider Co. is a craft cidery offering an assortment of flavorful zero sugar cider-produced on-site, a selection of locally sourced, natural wines, and premium coffee in an electric environment. The popular Austin-based cidery is located within an industrial, open-concept facility that serves as its manufacturing location and taproom-which features private karaoke rooms and special event space. 

To ensure the multi-purpose space would serve as both a functional and comfortable environment, acoustical consideration was key. To address the need for acoustic control, without comprising its unique, funky design, K-13 in black was utilized for the exposed ceiling. Spray-applied to the ribbed metal deck, K-13 serves as an exposed interior finish that absorbs unwanted, excessive noise, which would otherwise be prevalent in a space of this type. In addition to acoustic performance, K-13 provides thermal R-value, reducing heating and cooling costs.
