Here are a few pics from a job in New York which was installed a while back by one of our regular dealers.
Note how they used a nice mix of 2’x4’ and 4’x4’ Sonora® Panels to work around the geometry of the room! Spreading around a bunch of smaller panels, like 2’x4’s, can work great because of the flexibility it gives you with your layout and design options.
As 2017 rapidly comes to a close, here is a look at a couple of more installations from earlier in the year. Both of these fellowship halls were done by the same AFC dealer/installer. As you can see, although the rooms differ greatly in shape and size, they were both treated with our Sonora panels.
It’s all about panel placement.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Here’s a nice example of a 3D rendering vs. real life. This 3D model was created by our acoustic analyst, Cameron Girard, for one of our church clients. We think the final results turned out fantastic!
Sonora® Acoustical Wall Panels are always a great choice where excessive reverb and diminished speech intelligibility are an issue.
Hello Folks! We decided to share a few more eye popping pictures of our popular ToneTile™ product line. These paintable/printable panels can make for some of the most interesting and exciting visual accents to a space, in addition to their acoustical benefits. These painted ToneTiles™ were part of a larger installation for an Athletic Club in Delaware.
We think they turned out great!

On many occasions, we get asked about common ways to treat a wall (or walls) either for broadcast, podcast, or other voice recording scenario – where they not only want to tame the reflections within the room, but also block a certain amount of sound coming into – or leaving the room.
Budget is frequently an issue, major construction is usually unwanted, but effective results are always required.
We’re going to show you how to handle a room upgrade – cut down on the sound transmission and cut the room reflections – all with the same skills required to hang high quality wall coverings! Let’s see how you can cover a wall with BlockAid® vinyl sound barrier to block unwanted sound, then go back and cover that with an absorptive layer of Sound Channels® wall covering to finish it off!
This treatment is not recommended for renters, as this is not an easy upgrade to undo. However, if you have an extra bedroom you are using as Podcast studio, this is a great way to treat it… Let’s get started!
Good job! Now, take a breather while that dries, and notice how much less sound is passing through the walls. This is when you will notice that the sounds are now coming from under the door, and through the leaky old window. These can be taken care of in different ways…. but the easiest way is the same way you deal with keeping the cold out! Get some weather strip, a door skirt, seal the gaps around the frame of the door, and windows, maybe go out and buy some heavy curtains for the windows… if you have some leftover BlockAid®, you can always get some Industrial Velcro and temporarily stick a piece over the window!
Installing Sound Channels®
This treatment is a common first step in treating many professional broadcast studios – it gives you extra isolation with the barrier and takes the edge of the sound reflections. Many professional environments then go back and add some additional treatments such as bass traps, diffusers, and broadband absorber panels – especially if these studios are planning on bringing in any musical guests.
This isn’t just for home studios. It works great for kids play rooms, bedrooms, home theaters, home gyms, and any place you want to block sound and tame the sound inside the room.
Customize your space as you will, but this treatment is a consistent winner for cost and performance, and is a great way to get started without breaking the bank!
