If you are interested in adding some color to your acoustic panels, there are plenty of options – good and bad. Taking your favorite designs or materials from the local fabric store and wrapping your acoustic panels will likely take away from the paneling’s ability to absorb sound properly, putting you right back where you started. That’s why at SoundAway we specialize in the Guilfordof Maine line of acoustic fabrics. Guilford of Maine is a versatile line of fabrics that look great without affecting the efficacy of your acoustic panels. So, we’ve decided to let you in on why Guilford of Maine fabrics are the right choice for all of your acoustic projects.
An important aspect of any acoustic fabric is that it doesn’t negate the properties of your acoustic panels. Guilford of Maine fabrics are acoustically transparent, meaning they allow sound to travel through the fabric so your panels can do their job. Sound waves may reflect from other fabrics or materials that will not reduce noise levels or help control reverberations, in fact, it may exacerbate the noise issue. Guilford of Maine’s acoustically transparent design incorporates woven textures to create a breathable material that allows sound to pass through with minimal resistance.
Guilford of Maine’s diverse styles and colors gives you virtually endless options for customization. The vivid colors choices will enhance the interior of any room and you can print designs directly onto the fabrics including landscapes or your brand logo. These fabrics can be cut into any shape and be applied using an adhesive or stapled to your panels. The material is woven in a way that prevents sagging while maintaining its acoustically transparent properties.
The Guilford of Maine FR701, Anchorage, and Paradise fabrics are their most popular lines and are perfect for a multitude of applications. All are made from 100% recycled, Class A fire-rated polyester that’s lightweight, resistant to stains, and engineered to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. These fabrics can be easily cleaned with a light vacuuming or brushing with deeper cleaning delicately performed using water-based cleaning agents.
Whether you’re wrapping wall panels or making speaker grill covers, our Guilford of Maine fabrics incorporate the most important features to create a truly unique and versatile solution for all of your acoustical needs. These acoustical fabrics are safe for every member of your family, made in the USA from quality, recycled materials, and built to last!
