Things to look for in an acoustic panel contractor in Canada.
What kind of acoustic panels are the best in Canada?
Stay away from acoustic panels made with wood and glue. make sure that all the materials used in the construction of the acoustic panels are fire rated.
What makes an acoustic panel good enough to put in an office or restaurant?
Most acoustic panels are covered with fabric. It is important that high quality acoustic fabric is used. High quality fabric looks much better, but costs a little more.
It is also important that the fabric is wrapped tightly around the panel frame, and not glued to the surface. This keeps the lines clean and tight, providing a very professional look.

We can usually be onsite to do a formal quote, at your office or restaurant within 2 to 3 days. We can then provide a quote within a couple of days after that. See these instructions for getting a quote.

Looking to make your own Acoustic Panels?
Here are some basic instructions, related to making your own acoustic panels. There are lots of youtube videos, demonstrating the construction and assembly of homemade acoustic panels.
What makes your acoustic panels better than others?
There are two type of acoustic panels, acoustic panels with internal frames and ones without. Our acoustic panels are designed and manufactured with an internal aluminum extruded frame.
The panels without frames tend to have edges that are not as tight and clean looking. This is because the fabric is laid across the media, and glued to the face, without applying tension across the acoustic panel. Acoustic panels without frames are also difficult to install on ceilings.
Acoustic panels with internal frames can have the fabric pulled tight across the face, providing a cleaner look. Acoustic panels with an internal frame, also keeps the fabric off of the acoustic media, making it easier to pass through the fabric into the acoustic media.
Please come down to our manufacturing facility and we can show you around.
How do you figure out how many acoustic panels to install to reduce the noise level?
We use our acoustic panel coverage calculator. We then figure out where to install the acoustic panels. In a perfect cube room, with nothing on the walls or ceiling (like a squash court), we would take 2 perpendicular surfaces, and a third if possible. When you try to come up with a configuration, try to remember that sound will reflect off of parallel surfaces first. All you need to do is address one of those surfaces.
Is it necessary to cover the complete wall with acoustic panels?
Is there any guarantee that comes with your Acoustic panels?
If you accept our recommendation on number of acoustic panels, sizes and layout, if you are not satisfied for any reason with the performance of the acoustic panels, we will provide a full refund, no questions asked.
How do you calculate how many acoustic panels are required?
We use an acoustic coverage calculator that provides us with the acoustic panel square foot coverage required. We tried to get the recommended acoustic coverage, but that is not always possible, given some spaces have a great deal of fixtures on the walls or ceilings. But we do tell you how much coverage we can provide upfront, of the 100% required.
How do you figure out where to place the acoustic panels in a room?
We try to install the acoustic panels on at least 2 perpendicular planes. If you just cover parallel reflective surfaces, such as opposing walls, you will still hear echo from the remaining walls.Read more about acoustic panel placement.

What tools are used in making the acoustic panels?
We use a metal cut-off saw to cut the aluminum extruded channels, we can cut up to 20 pieces at a time. We use a standing drill press to pre-drill holes in the channels. We then prefabricate the end pieces, using the channel and flat aluminum bar, and an aluminum cube. We assemble the panel on a large table, using rivets to fasten the pieces together. The acoustic panel is then moved to our wrapping department next door, where fabric is drawn tight over the panel, and securely fastened to the back of the panel. You are welcome to visit our manufacturing plant in Oakville.
Why don't you manufacture and install acoustic baffles?
Acoustic baffles are hung from the ceiling, and unfortunately in Ontario, sprinklers run across the ceiling. Installing acoustic baffles under the sprinkler would violate, building and fire code. Acoustic panels are more economical and cost effective.
