Compatibility Samples/Sample Offerings

Deciding on what frame size, profile, backing and fabric you want to use for your site-fabricated Fabricmate® panels just got easier!

 
 

Are you interested in our site-fabricated wall finishing system, but aren’t sure of exactly what you want? Our online store offers samples of the Frame, Backing and Fabric components that make up our site-fabricated system – so you can try before you buy.

Want to see it all together? We also offer our Compatibility Samples – miniature boards made up of frame, backing, and fabric showing how these three components look and work together. With a Compatibility Sample, you can not only see an example of the particular frame and substrate you’re interested in, but you can order any of our fabric samples and roll them in yourself (don’t forget to order your Rocker Tool!).

Our Compatibility Samples are also a great way to test your fabric! Compatibility Samples are available in most configurations and frame colors. They can be configured with or without intermediate seams to allow you to decide what style works best for your design.

Custom is standard at Fabricmate® – order your samples today:

ReCore ® and the Environment

When it comes to building materials do you ask yourself: Are they sustainable? Are they made from recycled content and also recyclable? Do they hold up against moisture? Are they safe to handle? When it comes to ReCore®, the answer is YES!

Fabricmate’s ReCore® is a revolutionary insulation made from 100% non-woven recycled/recyclable polyester fiber. Semi-rigid and incredibly lightweight, ReCore® is impact-resistant, thermally insulating and sound absorbing, making it an excellent choice for durable wall protection while retaining excellent acoustical properties. Available in multiple thicknesses and densities – higher densities offer better tackability while the higher thicknesses offer better acoustic sound absorption – it is the logical choice for acoustical insulation for wall panels, ceiling tiles, duct liners and a sound deadening medium below carpeting and wood flooring.

ReCore® is the environmentally responsible alternative to other substrates that typically require protection to handle and are not recyclable. The recycled polyester fiber content contributes to lessening dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. This prolongs landfill life, reducing toxic emissions from incinerators and helping to promote new recycling streams, resulting in less air, water, and soil contamination.ReCore® is naturally resistant to insects, spores and bacteria making it anti-fungal and anti-microbial. Being free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), like formaldehyde, makes it completely safe in enclosed environments.

Whether you need excellent acoustical performance, tackability, impact resistance, thermal insulation, a product free from VOCs, one with a high post-consumer recycled content or all of the above, Fabricmate’s ReCore® is the high-performance and environmentally responsible choice.

    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.

    Two-Band Layout

    Hover For Illustration

    One of our more popular full-wall layouts. Looks great in lobbies, conference rooms, and executive offices where maximum sound absorption is required.


    Pros: Great appearance. Lends itself to the use of different colors for a stunning visual effect.

    Cons: Slightly more expensive than the Single-Band Layout.

    Three-Band Layout

    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.


    Pros: Very attractive. Most cost-effective use of labor and materials.

    Cons: None!

    Vertical Multi-Panel Layout

    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.


    Advantages: Full-wall coverage. Accommodates directional fabrics.

    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.


    Pros: Partial wall coverage or decorative wainscoting

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

    Flex-Frame® Curved Three-Band Layout

    Hover For Illustration

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


    Pros: Full-Wall Coverage.

    Cons: Slightly more expensive than the standard Two-Band Layout, but worth it!

    Receptacle Box Extenders and Shields

    20180228_socketOnStretchedFabric

    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.
