Absorption Panels

Absorption panels trap and contain sound waves, reducing echo and reverberation to eliminate background noise. Absorption panels can be offered in a variety of fabric colors, and can even be finished with your own custom art. There are also options

For large acoustical art panels, Commercial suppliers may have additional options. These are printed on acoustically-transparent fabric, then printed via a process known as “dye sublimation”. The art fabric is then wrapped on acoustic panels to ensure the panel keeps its absorptive properties.

Note: Acoustic Panels are effective at absorbing echo and reverberation, but will not improve the sound-blocking of a wall assembly.

Decorative Soundproof Curtains

Our AcousticCurtain™ is a soundproof curtain that blocks outside noise, deflecting sound waves so that they don’t enter your space. We offer fabrics in a variety of colors and patterns, or you can even send in your own canvas cotton fabric. You can also choose the strap color, hook color, height, and width of the curtain to perfectly match any room design.
