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 fabric 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. Some sound absorbing fabric work over speaker grills and diffusers, and bass traps.

Secondly under the fabric, there is the acoustical layer. For example, we work with Owens Corning insulation products such as type 703, 705. However other sound 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, the infill product and the visual finish. Customs built out are sometimes necessary for achieving depth over 2″ deep.
