Panel Components

Frame, Backing, and Fabric - Cut to Size

Choose the backing type (Padded or Tackable) and seam type (Straight, Curved or None) for the panel you'd like to build and we'll precut everything and send it to you ready to assemble along with all the outlined Tools.

frame

The Frame - occasionally called track or trim - outlines and frames the shape of the panel or full-wall system, holding the fabric in place and protecting the edges with high-impact plastic. Starter Kits include pre-cut Frame that is ready to be installed. 

Clarico-3 Columns Style 2

backing

The Backing fills in the frame and covers the wall, absorbing reverberated sound and providing impact-resistance, thermal insulation, and a pinnable bulletin-board-like surface perfect for tacking things up.

Clarico-3 Columns Style 2

fabric

The Fabric gets rolled into the Frame, covering the backing by stretching over the area to be covered. The fabric being stretched means that it will bounce back when hit, effectively mitigating visible damage, and allowing you to change it if desired.

INNOVATIVE AND VERSATILE
With a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors available, the possibilities are endless. 

FRAME outlines and frames the shape of the panel or wall, holding the fabric in place and protecting the edges with a high-impact polymer frame.

BACKING fills the frame and covers the wall, absorbing reverberated sound, providing impact-resistance, thermal insulation, and a pinnable bulletin-board like surface that's perfect for tacking up photos, documents, and more.

FABRIC 
is stretched over the backing and held taut by the frame allowing the panel surface to spring back when struck, effectively mitigating visible damage.
