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.

Fabricmate® Acoustic Cotton is an eco-friendly alternative to fiberglass or mineral wool acoustic insulation. Safe and easy to handle, it is made from 100% post-industrial denim and cotton fibers. High-quality and sustainable building materials such as these are great for every project whether it’s LEED certified or just that DIY you’ve been considering.

Acoustic Cotton provides incredible acoustic absorption and thermal performance without the chemical or fiberous irritants found in other forms of acoustic insulation. It comes in 1/4″, 1/2″, 1″ & 2″ thicknesses, making it an excellent acoustic backing for use with all of our acoustic Stretched-Fabric Systems.

The unique manufacturing of Acoustical Cotton allows it to trap and absorb sound waves, which greatly reduces reverberated sound. Having a Noise Reduction Coefficient up to 1.05 (at 2″ thickness) makes it an ideal material for many applications, such as in home theaters, conference rooms, classrooms and other high-traffic enviornments.
