We are receiving about 300 sound panels this next month. Half of them are not covered. Does anyone have suggestions on the type of fabric for covering these or a contact where to get it from?
I wouldn'y think the requirements would be too great except for them probably having to be flame retardant.
Thanks

Any fabric used for acoustic sound panels has to meet the following criteria:

Flammability meets ASTM-E84, Class A; California Bulletin 117; and NFPA 701.

It must be acoustically transparent, and generally, it is 100% polyester. Some of the fabrics have Olefin and Acrylic fibres along with the poly, but some of these don't meet NFPA 701. If the fabric is glued to the panel, the flammability rating is lower than if it is stretched over batt insulation.

A good fabric will have high resistance to stretching. Some fabric manufacturers we have used are Tandem Fabrics Inc., Victor, and Guilford of Maine. Whoever does the installation will have access to a variety of fabrics which meet the specifications.

Make very sure the fabric is inherantly fireproof -- not treated. Treated fabrics only stay treated a finite amount of time. Come a fire inspection, you might find yourself having to recover your panals because the fabric won't pass. Don't ask me how I know this . . . .

The best sound panels that I have seen to date were covered in an Inherently and permanently flame resistant Velourette style fabic. You get the look of Velour and the lightweight aspect of the fabric makes it easy to work with. The imporant thing is to keep the nap all in the right direction when covering. Go to www.melfabco.com for more info. They are a supplier of mine. I dont know for sure if the sell to the end user.
