This two-band layout is typical for full-wall installations, especially in basements. It provides an excellent aesthetic, durable wall protection, acoustic absorption and a pinnable expanse to hang up posters, art or anything else.
Our system easily installs around outlets, switches and vents.
The lower half of the support column has a wainscoting installation, providing protection without needing to install on the full vertical length of the column.
Wainscoting in hallways is the best and most cost-effective way to protect your walls in high-traffic areas. Unlike traditional wainscoting installations, replacing damaged sections requires only the replacement of the fabric covering. No more long lead times to replace a damaged section. Simply pull the damaged fabric from the frame and replace.
The Studio 54 Fabric used here is an incredibly tough fabric with an elastic weave that allows it to spring back when struck or dragged against.
HORIZONTAL – TACKBOARD 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.
Advantages: Single band. This layout integrates a tackable surface and a marker board. Less expensive than covering an entire wall.
Disadvantages: Less tackable/display area and less sound absorption than with full-wall coverage.
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. Considered unattractive due to the multiple seams breaking up the continuity and flow of the wall surface.
HORIZONTAL – 3 PANEL LAYOUT
One of our more popular full-wall layouts. Looks great in lobbies, conference rooms, and executive offices where maximum sound absorption is required.
Advantages: Great appearance. Lends itself to the use of different colors for a stunning visual effect.
Disadvantages: Slightly more expensive than the 2-Panel Layout.
HORIZONTAL – 2 PANEL 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.
Advantages: Very attractive. Most cost-effective use of labor and materials.
HORIZONTAL – SINGLE CURVED LAYOUT
This is an uncommon look but extremely decorative. Curvature can vary depending on design and preference.
Advantages: Partial wall coverage or decorative wainscoting
Disadvantages: Less tackable/display area and less sound absorption than with full-wall cover
