Introduction

Kathy PalimoreWe use acoustical fabric in a variety of ways here at Acoustical Solutions. If you are looking for a fabric to wrap your Acoustical Panels or to cover speakers and amplifiers, we have a multitude of fabric options. We primarily use Guilford of Maine Fabrics for our standard panels but are not limited to those alone. We can also apply Maharam, Noel, and Carnegie fabrics to your panels to spruce up your room with their bright vibrant color and pattern options.

We offer the Crosspoint Fabric designed to absorb mid to high frequency sound and reduce ambient noise. The Crosspoint Fabric is great for use as a wall covering when you are seeking to cover the entire wall to knock the first reflection down slightly.

What is Acoustic Fabric?

Crosspoint Sound Absorbing FabricAcoustic or Acoustical fabric is used for wrapping acoustical wall panels, our Guilford of Maine fabrics and Sound Suede, are designed to let sound energy into an acoustical panel to do its job, rather than reflecting sound off the surface like other fabrics. We also offer a variety of sonically transparent fabrics that are excellent for replacing your speaker grille cloth. The Crosspoint Acoustical Fabric is a great wall covering for exhibits & displays, conference rooms, theaters, elevators and schools.
