Acoustical Wall & Ceiling Panels

Acoustical Fabric Wrapped Wall & Ceiling Panels answer your acoustical and aesthetic needs with their strong sound absorbing performance, durability and elegant appearance. These panels are used for sound reduction and reverberation control. 

There are many components in understanding how to specify acoustical wall and ceiling panels. Here are the key considerations: 
  • Acoustically Transparent Fabric
    Perhaps your first decision will be the fabric. When designing an acoustical wall panel solution, the sound needs to pass through the fabric so it can be absorbed into the substrate behind it. This is done by using a fabric that allows sound to pass through it, thus an acoustically transparent fabric. If you can blow though the fabric, then sound can also pass through it. 
  • Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC)
    NRC is a number that measures how much sound the panel absorbs. If a wall panel has a rating of .85 then 85% of the sound is absorbed into the panel and 15% is bounced back into the room. The higher the number, the better. 
  • Substrate
    The substrate is the padding behind the fabric. For fabric wrapped panels, the most common substrate is 1" thick fiberglass. The fiberglass substrate is also available in 1/2" and 2" thicknesses and in an overall size of 48" x 96" maximum. When doing a SnapTrack system, the substrate can be other materials since the fabric is not being glued to the surface. We are presently working on a mushroom grown panel. 
  • Fabric Wrapped 
    The fabric wrapped panel is a fiberglass substrate wrapped by an acoustically transparent fabric. The fabric is glued on to the panel surface. These panels are available with square, round, semi-beveled and beveled edges. 
  • SnapTrack
    The SnapTrack system is fabric stretched over the substrate and attached to the walls with a track system. The SnapTrack advantage is that you can use non-fiberglass substrates and go larger sizes then the fabric wrapped panels.
