Solve your echo and reverberation issues with an Acoustics America Acoustic Panel. These fabric-wrapped, sound absorbing panels are available in a wide array of colors, sizes and thicknesses, and give you the freedom to absorb excess ambient noise according to your design and aesthetic needs. Once you mount these panels on your walls, you can listen clearly to the sounds that matter.

Product Features:
  • Maximum performance: Our panels are constructed with a high-density (6 PCF) fiberglass core, and wrapped in acoustically-transparent fabric. This high-density core offers excellent absorption for your most demanding treatment applications.
  • More colors: We offer our panels in 41 colors across 4 fabric lines:
    • Our Classic 700 Series line offers a selection of 4 colors.
    • Our Acoustics America line offers a selection of 19 colors.
    • Our Guilford of Maine Anchorage line offers a selection of 6 colors.
    • Our Guilford of Maine FR701 line offers a selection of 12 colors.
  • More sizes: These panels are available in 20 sizes, ranging from 12″ x 12″ (1′ x 1′) all the way up to 120″ x 48″ (10′ x 4′).
  • Multiple thicknesses: Our panels are available in two thicknesses for your unique treatment needs:
    • 1″ inch panels are an ideal acoustic treatment for residential spaces and light commercial applications.
    • 2″ thick acoustic panels are optimal for heavy commercial spaces such as large gathering areas, music venues, restaurants and open office perimeters.
      • A 2 inch thickness will also help you achieve maximum absorption per square foot of space.
  • Multiple mounting options: We offer two different mounting options, tailored to your application.
    • Impaling clips: Suitable for wall-mount applications. Easy to install and included with your order, by default.
    • Rotofast™ Snap-On anchors: This mounting option is suited for both wall and ceiling direct-mount applications. This option also does not require adhesive.
  • Installation: Our panels are easily installed using our mounting options listed above. We recommend installing panels a minimum of a 3 inches away from each other, or from walls, or molding. Panels should be kept a minimum of 12” away from ductwork and lighting, so as not to interfere with airflow or light dispursement. This panel separation allows the sides of the panel to also absorb sound, which maximizes each panel’s effectiveness and improves the aesthetics of the treatment. Placing panels closer together than 3″ creates a crowded look and a less appealing “seam.”
  • Safety and peace of mind: These panels are Class A fire rated (the highest rating possible) for use in indoor applications.
  • Proudly made in the USA.

Frequently Asked Questions View All FAQs

No, this product is not designed to block or prevent the transfer of sound from one space to another. This is a sound-absorbing product, and it is designed to effectively reduce echo, reverberation and ambient noise. By addressing these issues, these products can dramatically improve sound quality and speech intelligibility in a space.

To address sound-transfer issues from adjacent rooms or spaces,  sound-blocking products are required.  For some further explanation on the differences between these two concepts, click here for our video on sound blocking.

Please note that quality sound blocking products for walls requires adding layers of drywall, mass loaded vinyl, and green glue. While not overly complicated, these projects do require skills in drywall construction, and the ability to closely follow design instructions for creating a sound proof wall.

Yes! We can custom cut any size acoustic panel, ceiling cloud or bass trap to your desired dimensions. Here’s how:

  1. Select the STANDARD panel, cloud or bass trap that is large enough for your needed custom cuts at our website.
  2. Under the “Custom Options” section on the product page, select  “Yes”.
  3. Select the desired custom length and width, using the sliders that appear. If you do not see the dimension(s) you need on the slider, please double check your selected starting panel size.


We offer our panels, clouds and panel kits in 1 and 2 inch thicknesses.

  • A 1 inch thickness is ideal for residential spaces with a maximum of 5-10 people.
  • A 2 inch thickness is suited to commercial spaces such as restaurants and offices, with a maximum of 20-50 people. A 2 Inch thickness is also ideal for maximum absorption per square foot of space.

For our acoustic panels, we offer two mounting methods: Impaling clips are the industry standard for wall-mounting panels and are included with your order.

We also offer an alternative Rotofast mounting option for an additional fee.

Rotofast offers numerous advantages over impaling clips, such as:

  1. Rotofast is suitable for both wall and ceiling flush-mount applications. Impaling clips are suitable for wall mount applications only.
  2. No glue is required for installation. Less mess and cleanup.
  3. Easy panel removal. Rotofast Snap-On anchors can be pried away from the wall using a long thin prybar to get near the attachment point.
  4. Very easy to use standoff blocks to further improve the product’s acoustic performance.

We include mounting hardware (impaling clips) with all acoustic panel purchases. For impaling clip installation, adhesive is required as explained in our installation instructions and is available separately.

Our acoustic panel kits ship with angled impaling clips. Adhesive is not required for this mounting option.

Hardware for attaching impaling clips to your wall is not included. Drywall anchors and screws (or other hardware as appropriate) to mount the impaling clip to the wall are to be sourced from a local hardware store based on your particular wall type and situation.  Please note that impaling clips are for use on wall surfaces only and are not to be used for ceiling direct-mount applications or for any surface that is beyond perpendicular to the floor.

Optional Rotofast Snap-on anchors do not require adhesive and are available as an alternative installation option at product selection.

No, our panels are manufactured using a frameless design. We design our panels to be frameless for the following benefits:

  1. Our frameless panels are lighter weight, which makes our panels easier to handle, ship and install.
  2. Our frameless panels absorb sound on the edges too, giving more absorption area per panel. Wooden framed panels do not.
  3. Our panels are eco-friendly. No trees are consumed in the production of our panels.
  4. Our denser fiberglass core offers the ultimate amount of sound absorption per inch.
  5. Our panels, when mounted with “stand-off”, furring strip, or suspended method, provide additional absorption from the back side of the panel. Wood backed panels do not.

Yes, it is!  Our high density (6 PCF) Johns Manville Acoustic Fiberglass board provides superior sound absorption when compared to other materials. For our 1″ and 2″ thick panels, the performance of our fiberglass is better than same thickness of foam, Mineral wool, or Owens Corning 703.  Also, our core material is quite rigid, so a wooden frame is not required.

Our panels and clouds have fabric on the front of the panel only. If you are looking for a panel with fabric on both sides for desktop or floor standing applications, you might consider gluing two panels together. We do not recommend hanging or suspending panels that you have glued together.

Here is a link to our Loctite Power Grab Adhesive.

Our products are safe and effective and have been tested by an independent lab. All our panels and clouds carry a Class A fire rating which is the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.

The panels have significantly reduced the echoing in our fellowship hall, and they look great! Socializing in the room became very uncomfortable when the carpet was removed, but now the room is useable again.
