Backing, Insulation & Substrates

We carry a large selection of substrates and insulation, including our multi-purpose rigid polyester insulation ReCore® for use in sound-proofing, thermal and acoustic control applications.

These substrates can be used in our Fabric Wall Finishing Systems or – in the case of ReCore® – applied directly to any surface.


Innovative Flexibility

We’ve organized our Backings by thickness to make it easier to find what you need.


Innovative Flexibility

Once the track is installed, the backing is cut and installed.

Available in 1/4″, 1/2″, 1″ and 2″+ thicknesses! We offer a number of specific types of backing depending on your application. The backing is the material that absorbs impact, sound as well as insulates walls to a certain degree. Other valuable uses that our backing serves can be for tackboards, where you can press a tack through papers or hang other materials. We also offer a Mag-Tack™ backing that will accept magnets to suspend materials for crafts or in a conference room.


Revolutionary ReCore®

ReCore® is a revolutionary, environmentally responsible insulation and substrate made from 100% non-woven polyester fiber. It is made from 60% post consumer content (recycled plastic beverage containers), and is, itself, 100% recyclable.

Available in multiple thicknesses, densities and colors. It is ideal as acoustical insulation for panels, walls, and ceilings. It is unsurpassed as a tackable surface while simultaneously providing impact-resistant shock absorbency. It can also be used as ceiling tiles, as a duct liner and as a sound deadening medium below carpeting and wood flooring.


Roxul Mineral Wool

Roxul is a mineral wool or rock wool. It is forged with basalt rock and slag using a process in which they are superheated and their fibers are then non-directionally bound to create a resistant acoustical substrate. As heat is utilized in the process it gives Roxul excellent heat resistance of temperatures up to 2,150 degrees Fahrenheit.

The non-directional fibers also give Roxul a unique orientation that repels and drains water. This is beneficial in a few ways in that Roxul will retain its shape, wont sag, and it also discourages the promotion of mold, mildew and flames without additives or flame retardants. Roxul also helps to reduce airflow. This higher air flow resistance makes better sound attenuation possible, making Roxul a good acoustical backing for many different wall finishing solutions. One inch Roxul has an acoustical NRC rating of .70 and two inch Roxul has an NRC of .95.
