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 Patterns and Layouts


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.

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!

Flex-Frame® Curved Single-Band Layout
