Our Acoustics America Starter Acoustic Panel Kit is a designed to absorb noise and reduce echo in interior spaces. Available in a wide array of colors, these sound absorbing panels give you the freedom to control 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.
This 1″ starter kit contains enough panels to acoustically treat a 10′ x 10′ room. For larger or more heavily populated spaces, consider ordering supplemental panels, and also consider our more absorptive 2″ thick panel line.
Choice of 22 colors across two fabric lines:
Our Acoustics America fabric line offers a selection of 19 colors.
Our Guilford of Maine Anchorage line offers a selection of 3 colors.
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.
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, 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.
No, our panels are manufactured using a frameless design. We design our panels to be frameless for the following benefits:
They are more fire resistant. Wooden frames can ignite faster than flame resistant fiberglass.
They are lighter weight, which makes our panels easier to handle and install.
More Eco-friendly. No trees are consumed in the production of our panels.
Our fiberglass core offers the ultimate amount of sound absorption per inch.
Our rigid, high-density fiberglass board is sturdier and holds its shape over time.
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.
We include mounting hardware (impaling clips) with all panel purchases. For impaling clip installation, adhesive is required as explained in our installation instructions and is available separately.
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.
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.
For California residents: This product contains Antimony Trioxide and Glass Wool Fibers, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer under certain exposures.
