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!
DIY Project – Music/Copy Stand Cover
Take a few seconds and DIY fix some of the common problems with using metal music stands!
Not too many people think about their music stands, but we all have them somewhere. Usually it’s one of those you see to the right – the great, sturdy, utilitarian devices that they are. Unfortunately, there are a couple inherent problems with these:
- Ringing – The metal resonates causing a ringing effect.
- Reflections – many times you are using a stand close to a microphone and getting early reflections off the stand.
Here’s a few DIY fixes for these common problems.
- 1 yard of Sound Channels® acoustical fabric will reduce reflections back to the microphone – for up to 4 stands!
- 3 Linear feet of BlockAid® Sound Barrier will reduce ringing and resonance.
- a few feet of composite foam will give you both reflection and ringing fixes
The ultimate suggestion would be the Composite Foam/Barrier adhered directly to the stand, then covered with Sound Channels® fabric – This would turn your stand into a mini absorber.
Do the front and back! Make a slip cover for a temporary/removable solution.
