Open House Panel Fabric

Designer Quality.   Acoustically Transparent.   100% Sustainable.

Guilford of Maine’s Open House panel fabric is made from 35% post-consumer and 65% pre-consumer polyester to produce a high-quality acoustical fabric that can be recyclable at the end of its useable life. This is an ideal fabric for wrapping or covering acoustical panels or speaker grills. Open House exceeds our high standards of quality, durability and sustainability. It is one of our most popular fabrics and we offer it by the yard or wrapped on bulletin board and acoustic panels.

Open House is the perfect fabric for fabric wrapped panels such as acoustic wall panels and bulletin boards. It is also incredibly popular when used in our Fabric Wall Finishing System. Acoustic panel fabrics, such as Open House or FR701 will soak up reverberated sound and reduce noise levels when paired with a good sound absorbent backing like ReCore®. Open House offers more than just acoustic transparency. The 100% polyester weave is structured to provide durability and is self-healing when tacked with pins or thumbtacks, making it ideal in places such as hallways and classrooms. Normal wear and tear that would leave scuff marks and scratches on painted surfaces is effectively negated when Open House is protecting and adorning your walls.
