Tackability is another feature of all Tectum Fabri-Tough panels. They can be used repeatedly as bulletin or display boards without visible effect, making them ideal for work areas, conference rooms and classrooms. The fabric facing is composed of fibers that are manufactured from 100% post-consumer waste by EcoSpun®. Depending on mounting, the Fabri-Tough wall panel system can provide NRC’s from .50 to .90. Mounting is quick and easy via the internal spline system. The wall panel fabric is wrapped around the edges of the long sides to the kerf. Panels are installed by inserting the furnished vinyl splines into the kerf, then fastening the splines to the wall or other structure.
Tectum Décor Fabri-Tough Panels have fully wrapped edges and are attached using 20” Z-Clips allowing for panels to be strategically placed in a space as opposed to being attached consecutively. Tectum Fabri-Tough and Décor Panels have a flame spread of 25 or less under the ASTM E84 test method. Both panels meet the requirements of the room corner fire test (UBC 8-2 or equivalent) for use in areas not protected by automatic sprinklers. For panels to be used in recessed areas, some field adjusting may be necessary.
