COMPONENT SPECIFICATIONS

FABRIC - TANGO

Tango is a reliable, high-traffic fabric that is both acoustic and tackable. The weave gives a subtle texture and adds vidual interest to acoustic space. It allows the sound to pass through so it can be absorbed by the backing to create both beautiful and functional fabric covered wall panels and full-wall installations.
