Wall Upholstery - Use Your Own Fabric with ReCore® Backing - By the Sq Ft

Start enjoying the benefits of Fabric Covered Walls with our easy to configure By The Square Foot wall finishing system that uses your own fabric.
• Choose your Frame/Backing option:
- 1/4 inch Frame + 1/2 inch Roll Backing - economical and suited for printed graphics, residential and marine applications.
- 1/4 inch Frame + 1 inch Roll Backing - slim panel but with a padded wall look
- 1/2 inch Frame + 1/2 inch Roll Backing - very popular - clean crisp edges and a flat fabric appearance. Works with a wide array of fabrics.
- 1/2 inch Frame + 1 inch Roll Backing - same benefits but with a padded wall appearance. A little more in price, but worth it!
- 1 inch Frame + 1 inch Roll Backing - for a more lavish look and when extra space is needed behind the fabric to run cabling and other infrastructure.
• Choose to add our SoundSentinel option that reduces airborne noise transmission through walls.
• Use your own fabric to complete the installation. Whether you want a subtle or flashy look - it's your choice!

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.
