For field cutting panels of any size or thickness, we recommend that the product be cut on a table saw with a standard 8” round, smooth blade with no teeth, (similar to a meat carving blade). One-inch material can be cut straight through with one pass. Two-inch or thicker material should be cut half way through the thickness of the material, then flipped over and cut again along the same line. This cutting method will deliver the same square edge detail that the product was originally delivered with.
The EcoSorpt® Cotton Acoustic Panel is a LEED eligible, high performance, recycled cotton product that is used to reduce ambient noise levels and excessive reverberation. These panels can be glued directly to a wall or ceiling for interior applications. The natural cotton fibers are 100% recyclable and are made from at least 80% post-industrial recycled content making them a natural for the new LEED certified projects. As a result, less landfill, less energy consumption in the manufacturing process, less pollution, and a product that meets your needs for noise control.
EcoSorpt® cotton products can be used in a wide variety of applications. Whether you need to increase speech intelligibility or lower excessive noise levels, EcoSorpt® materials are your economical, acoustical solution.

These panels can easily be mounted to any wall or ceiling surface with water-based construction adhesive.
Installation is best done at the end of the construction project.
Use clean gloves to prevent soiling material.
Do not install material of unacceptable quality.
The colors vary from dye lot to dye lot due to recycled content. All sizes are nominal and are subject to manufacturing tolerances that may vary +/- 1/8″. Due to the manufacturing process there may be color inconsistencies – including dye lot variations – flecks, specks, and other slight surface blemishes are unavoidable.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
Accumulation of dust and dirt are best removed with a soft brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner. Use vacuum attachments with at least 1″ soft brushes to avoid damage to panel. Do not use water or cleaning solutions.
