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.
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!
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.

Here’s an array of our Sonora® Acoustical Wall Panels installed on an office wall. You may notice that the colors here really pop! That’s the Guilford of Maine® Whisper line. Whisper is an excellent fabric choice for Sonora panels if you’re looking for something a little more Vivid. You can add some visual life to your space, while taming it acoustically. Over 20 colors available.
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!
