Firstly, we guide through this step of choosing the proper textile for the wall surface. Whether the fabric needs stretching on acoustical wall panels, wall to wall or over speakers, we advise for the right selection. For instance, a popular supplier such as Guilford of Maine has a large library of woven textiles. In fact, Guilford of Maine provides fabrics for all type of wall surface like hospitality, and office markets. Commercial projects such as recording studios call for high performance textiles. However, a homeowner may have already selected her or his own fabric too. We will tell you if it is appropriate.

Secondly under the fabric, is the acoustical layer. For example, we work with Owens Corning insulation products such type 703, 705. However other noise absorbent acoustical solutions are possible like takable or, eco-friendly materials. The depth of the insulation does vary on the result you wish to obtain.

The last product is the fabric track system. The track is like a frame upon which the fabric is stretched on. It is selected for working with both, the infill product and the visual finish. Customs built out are sometimes necessary for achieving depth over 2″ deep.
