Typical Layouts for 7 Series Site-fabricated System

With our 7-Series Site-fabricated System, design and style choices are virtually unlimited. Having so many options can be understandably overwhelming, so we’ve put together some of the most common layouts along with a bit of information on each, including advantages, disadvantages, and images of completed installs. Which layout do you like most?

 

Single-Band Layout

One of the most popular layouts. Very functional in a classroom environment and very affordable. Used in classrooms, conference rooms, and open-plan offices. Acoustical & Tackable.


Pros: This layout integrates a tackable surface and a marker board. Less expensive than covering an entire wall.

Cons: Less tackable/display area and less sound absorption than with full-wall coverage.

The most popular and the most cost effective full wall layout. Highly recommended for lobbies, classrooms, student housing and where maximum sound absorption is required.

This common look was born of wrapped panels which are limited by the size of their substrate. Use only where this specific look is desired or where frequent panel fabric replacement will be necessary.

Disadvantages: Most expensive in both labor and materials.

Flex-Frame® Curved Single-Band Layout

This is a unique look and is extremely decorative. Curvature can vary depending on design and preference.

Receptacle Box Extenders and Shields

When you use our Fabric Wall Finishing System your outlets may not sit flush with the surface of the finished wall depending on the thickness or application type you’ve chosen. We have tools to ensure that your outlets are level with the fabric and give your project a beautiful clean finish! Receptacle Box Extenders and Shields support wiring devices where the electrical box is set back from wall surface, so that it lies flat with the front edge of a finished surface.
