Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Thanks, the other tape I had heard that was good was Gaffers tape... Not sure if it is better or worse for this situation.

Or just double over the edges before you staple it to the frame.

+1 for gorilla tape. (If you go that route) I'm building a fallout shelter with it.

Thanks Bryan,
I don't think I have enough material to double it over... I just had enough to make it to the 1" part on the fold over the frame. Some of the areas were about 1/2".
I got 3 panels completed today... Hopefully I can get 4-5 done tomorrow. Then I will try and get someone to help me with a mirror to see where to install them. Do I do the measurements for each seating position or just the MLP?

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I'll look at the Gorilla tape then if i need to tape it. Do most people tape it if they don't fold it over before stapling?

Question Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I am planning on covering all of the ceiling, and walls with fabric... Something like this , except my acoustic panels would be the only ones sticking out the most.

I was thinking of attaching the fabric to 1/2" x 1" wood and stapling it to it. I would do this for the whole wall, and then attach the acoustic panels to the fabric walls. I was thinking I could do this easily as long as I know where my wood is for attaching the acoustic panels to.

If I do this can I put something behind the whole fabric wall so the material will be more stable, ie if some one pushes on the panel I don't want the fabric to push inward with nothing behind it. What is the way they are normally done? Should I use pegboard, or solid foam insulation panels (with the aluminum foil facing outward)?

Any ideas or suggestions?

I'd just use plywood behind the fabric.

If I use solid plywood won't that create a triple effect? Maybe I should just use 1/2" plywood and wrap the material around it?

As long as there isn't a gap between the drywall and the plywood it's not at all a problem. The problem exists when you have more than one sealed air gap which you won't have.

How do I determine where to place the sound panels on the wall in regards to height? The panels are 2' x 4'... Would 2' off the floor, and leaving a gap under the soffit be ok? Our soffit is 1' from the ceiling but it stops about 6' from the screen... Which means the panels then have to go up 1' higher. I am thinking cosmetically it would be better to keep the distance from the floor the same (until it meets up with the 2nd row seating) the same, but I don't want to mess up the sound either.
