Sonora® Acoustical Panels and a Tip!

Sonora® Panels – Halleck Bar Gallery

Using light-colored acoustical panels can be tricky. Getting them from production, to job site, to final installation, all while maintaining their bright clean appearance takes much care. Here are some install pics from a job one of our dealers installed for a museum in Nevada. For this job Sonora® Wall Panels, covered in White Guilford® of Maine fabric, were installed along the upper perimeter of the facility.

A helpful hint for handling or installing lighter colored acoustical panels is to have some white gloves handy for the unloading and installation process!

Tone Tiles® – Double take.


From time to time, we have folks who require a good dose of sound absorption for their space, but desire a less intrusive look than that of ‘standard’ acoustical panels. For situations like this our Tone Tiles® are often the perfect solution. Although these panels are paintable and printable, when left in their ‘unfinished’ state they have a soft white color which is very subtle and tends to blend in well with many different environments. Here are a couple of pics from a recent ceiling installation.

As you can see, the panels almost disappear into the ceiling!

Binaural Bob Returns!

Back in the summer of 2015 we had a good time stuffing a bunch of our Model D Art Diffusors® into an empty storage closet and making a bunch of racket. The results were recorded, with the help of our friend Binaural Bob and the resulting data provided some interesting insights.

Well, Binaural Bob is back! This time we had a larger room than before (10’x9’x8’), and experimented with wider variety of sounds and treatment options. While this is obviously not the same as a controlled laboratory test, it does have a certain ‘real world’ flavor that’s relatable.

For best results, turn off any compression/effects and listen on headphones.
