Custom-made acoustical solutions
Are you looking for acoustical solutions in a wall upholstery project? You may already have the specifics for this job but need an installer. If you are an architect or an interior designer, please send us your plans.
We supply the fabric, acoustical infill of all kinds, select a fabric track system and install them to your custom specifications. For all residential wall upholstery demanding acoustical solutions, we work with our Clean Edge System tracks. A line of slim tracks designed for home installation.
On the other end, a commercial project requires another track. Let us take a closer look at the service offered for both types of installation.
Sound transparent fabrics
Firstly, we guide through this step of choosing the proper textile for the wall surface. However, a client may have already selected her or his fabric. In this case, we will tell you if it is appropriate for stretching on walls.
Whether the fabric needs stretching on acoustical wall panels, wall to wall or over speakers, we advise for the right selection. For instance, Guilford of Maine has many woven textiles. In fact, this supplier provides fabrics for all type of wall surfaces like hospitality and office markets. Commercial projects such as recording studios call for high-performance textiles.
Secondly under the fabric, is the acoustical layer. For example, we work with Owens Corning insulation products such as 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.
Stretching the fabric in a frame
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, the infill product and the visual finish. Customs built out are sometimes necessary for achieving depth over 2″ deep.
For a commercial project, we work with the second line of tracks. V.E. THOMAN is a FabriTRAK® systems installer and distributor for the territory from Austin to Houston including San Antonio area. FabriTRAK® products are available in round edge, square edge and bevel edge details in sizes ranging from ⅜″ to 2″. Note that PVC free alternatives are also a possibility.
On the other hand, a residential project has different requirements and, demands a flexible product. It’s why our company uses a slimmer track ready for all challenges in homes. This unique track fits everywhere in a home. The result is a custom-made clean edge wall upholstery with a smooth surface. Need to see some pictures?
