The Durability of Bleach Cleanable Materials

By | Uncategorized

Let’s explore the importance of having cleanable surfaces and the myriad of options are available.

When you create a space you love, you want the materials to last. At Baresque we understand this need which is why we are so passionate about durability and bleach cleanability. Right now, more than ever, everyone’s highest priority is cleanliness and ensuring that materials and surfaces are sterilised and safe to touch.

The range of bleach cleanable materials Baresque has to offer are not only easy to keep clean, but also extremely durable. There has never been a better time to add a layer of protection to your surroundings, and there has never been a time like now to make cleaning them easier.

What Does Bleach Cleanable Mean?

Protecting your customers from nasties by regularly wiping surfaces in your commercial space down is modus operandi these days. Bleach cleanable materials can be cleaned with a diluted solution of household bleach, making them easy to maintain and the perfect choice in a busy public space.

The range of bleach cleanable materials we have at Baresque is extensive and includes:

  • Advanced Wall Protection
  • Sunbrella Textiles
  • Zintra® Acoustic Panels

Read more about these materials in our blog ‘Bleach Cleanability’

How Does This Make Materials Durable?

Protecting materials from dirt, grime and even bugs helps them to last longer, allowing you to enjoy their style, or colours for an extended period. Bleach cleanable materials are also designed to be strong. We all know how powerful bleach can be, and these materials are created not to weaken or fade when in contact with the chemical.

Bleach cleanable materials are perfect for any area that may need regular disinfecting or sanitising and during these times, that can be anywhere. Many bleach cleanable materials also have additional stain resistance finishes, antibacterial finishes and moisture barriers to assist in helping them last and look great. The combination of features is what makes bleach cleanable materials the perfect addition to any hospital, restaurant, office, school or public space that needs to be kept sterile.

No matter what space you would like to look good and keep clean, you will find a style and colour scheme that suits in our exceptional range of bleach cleanable products. Constantly updating the selection, we have aesthetics to suit every unique requirement so you can have beautiful materials that are also highly functional.

Ceilings as Design and Acoustic Features

By | Uncategorized

Given the size of the area involved, ceilings should never be the forgotten element of design. When you are designing a room, it is important to look up to see the possibilities that can be created, not only from an aesthetic perspective, but also from a practical one.

Here at Baresque, we believe that ceilings can be used as design features and acoustic features and when done right, have a great range of benefits. Let’s explore how.

Benefits of Acoustic Ceilings  

  • Enjoy acoustic minimisation and better quality of sound. The Zintra® 12mm panel has an NRC 0.45 when stuck to the wall and up to 0.90 when used as a ceiling tile or baffle. It is the perfect solution when high quality acoustic performance is required.
  • You can incorporate colours and patterns into the space, and at Baresque with offer 20 colours which can then be combined with each other or digital printed for limitless combinations. Whatever theme you are aiming for, we have the technology to make it happen. 
  • Gives purpose to the ceiling rather than left to look like a forgotten piece. Whether you are dressing a small space, a large public gathering area or an office, adding acoustic ceilings can tie the whole room together. When designing a room its important to think of it as a canvas that you can turn into something exciting and inviting. The more appealing an area is, the longer people will want to be in it. 
  • Acoustic ceilings are cost effective solutions to new spaces or retrofitting existing areas that need design or acoustic improvements. You can easily and quickly transform the aesthetic of a room by adding in acoustic ceilings without the need for costly renovations or refurbishments.


Baresque Has the Solution

Baresque’s Acoustic Solutions will benefit commercial fitouts, education spaces, shopping centres, restaurants, and entertainment spaces. Absorbing internal sound influences, our Acoustic Solutions reduce the noise level in any room, creating a calmer, more inviting space.

Introducing the Loft Collection

By | Product Release

Imagine discovering a haven of peace in the midst of the wild energy of the city. Loft is a timeless collection combining nature and modernity through six unique designs. The collection offers harmonies of deep colours as well as soft and muted shades. The Stunning glass beads lend an air of magnificence to large spaces.

Designed and inspired by wall patinas weathered by the depths of history for this new collection that blends non-woven prints and resplendent minerals: glass beads and mica sparkles. A subtle interplay between shadow and light, matt and shine, on unique designs inspired by nature or geometry. Like a handprint, the print techniques are selected to convey the beauty of the material’s imperfections.

Metallic Canvas is a textured plain evocative of fabric, reflecting light as through gaps in an open weave inspired by nature.

Glass Beads is delicate with a textile quality. Its hazy light effect dazzles the eye. The delicate glassbeads are scattered onto a modern design inspired by the industrial world.

XL Chevron reveals artisanal know-how through this timeless geometric design. A subtle interplay between shadow and light is seen throughout the design.

Printed Mica Sparkles is a monochrome print on a semi precious material with a sandy feel evoking the flatness of a seascape and allowing thoughts to wander.

Withered Wood is based on several layers of withered wood put together to create an intriguing pattern. Six exciting colours to select from!

Personal Screens and Space Dividers in Offices

By | Blog

Australia has just experienced the largest amount of people working remotely in our history. Never before have we had such a major shut down of offices, workplaces and whole buildings – but this is looking to change in the near future.

Offices are starting to fill with workers, once again occupying their desk area. However, with the events that have transpired, we will be working in a very different world. Being cautious and keeping a respectable distance will remain mandatory behaviour as we continue to limit the risk of disease. So, as we start the journey back to our places of work and social engagement, some sort of screening to break up large open spaces will become increasingly important.

The Benefits of Screens in the Office

  • Helps you feel more comfortable and ease uncertainty when you return to the office
  • Personal screens can be easily attached to desks for privacy between workers
  • Variety of designs means you will find something to match the aesthetics of your office and your own workspace
  • Screens don’t cut you off from the rest of office, but allow you the privacy and protection needed in this new world
  • Large space dividers can break up spaces to create intimate areas for small meetings
  • Provides less distraction from others, which can increase productivity
  • Gives all workers a sense of reassurance that safety precautions are being taken seriously
  • Available in a large range of materials including those that are bleach cleanable and minimise office noise

Tailored Designs for You

There is no longer a need to sacrifice sense for style, as we can tailor our screen designs to suit you. Here at Baresque we understand the need for privacy and protection through screens and space dividers, but we also want our products to match every aesthetic they feature in.

With this in mind, we offer such a vast range of screen choices, with the ability to mix and match colours and finishes with design and core type. All of our designs can have a frameless progressive design and flush finish through biscuit joins between each panel.

Explore Baresque’s Range of Personal Screens and Space Dividers  

After a length of time away from the office and public spaces in some degree of isolation, how are we going to feel comfortable being around others again? The reality is its going to be awkward, but Baresque’s Personal Screening options will definitely help. Browse our selection today or reach out to our team to discuss your needs.
