The use of solid Bamboo, with its inherent dampening properties, in our high performance SVT and SV2T racks is a significant improvement over the wood veneer for heavier and larger sized components:
The engineered slotted shelves reduce mass and help air ventilation
Solid brass collars help dissipate vibration away from the electronics
Solid concave aluminium columns
Lauded by many in the Manufacturing Industry as the “Material of the Future”, Bamboo, with its high tensile strength and vibration suppressing qualities, is the ideal material to use in Quadraspire hifi rack to further improve sound performance.
The natural beauty of solid Bamboo lies in its awesome strength and intricate growth patterns and micro pore structure that can be seen in the shelf edge detail.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and regular harvests where each year about 30% of the forest is harvested without reducing the size of the forest.
Bamboo is carbon neutral where its C02 Fixation (absorption) prior to harvesting is greater than the C02 emissions during the manufacturing and transportation.
Quadraspire uses high Moso bamboo, supplied by Bamboo Surfaces, that has no leaf growth on the first 5 metres of the stem and is therefore not a source of food for the panda.
“With the introduction of Bamboo, we have now struck a perfect balance between performance, nature and design, truly a Hi-Fi rack for our times” Eduard Spruit established Quadraspire in 1995 with the aim of designing and making quality hifi furniture that combines style and function with acoustic performance. Hifi and AV components are susceptible to electrical and mechanical resonance that will degrade overall system performance. Quadraspire racks reduce this resonance through a combination of non magnetic aluminium columns and specially engineered wooden and now BAMBOO shelves made at our factory in Bath, England.
