Acoustic wall panels

What are acoustic wall panels?

Acoustic wall panels are simply acoustic panels that designed to be installed on walls.

They can be installed or hung with clips, or impaled on impalers. They are usually one inch to two inches thick.

Acoustic wall panels are cheaper than acoustic panels designed for the ceiling, as they don't need all of the reinforcement needed for ceiling installations in offices and ceiling installation in restaurants.

Do your acoustic wall panels cover the whole wall, from top to bottom?

Our acoustic wall panels don't cover the whole wall. They are installed 1/4" off the wall, and cover about 1/3 of the wall. They range in sizes from 2'x2' to 4'x8'.

We do not use impalers as they are hard to line and time consuming to install. Using impalers is equivalent to pushing the acoustic wall panel onto a wall with nails sticking out, to hold it to the wall.
