9. 9 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) As the first component and primary backbone of our Fabric Wall Finishing System, our Frame isn’t just built tough, our Frame is built smart with functionality in mind. The Fabric Mounting Frame (occasionally referred to as Track) defines the layout and style of the installation. It ‘Frames’ the Backing and holds the Fabric in place over the surface of the panel. • Protects the edges of the panel • Holds the Fabric in place • Made of high-impact, crush-proof plastic • Easily cut-to-length with Miter Saw or Chamfer Cutters • Fastened to wall using 7/8” 1/4” crown staples, drywall screws, or construction adhesive • Available in Flex-Frame ® (Curvable Mounting Frame) • Available in multiple colors • Available in Slim-Line (1/4”), Classic-Line (1/2”), and Full-Line (1”), and Max-Line (2”+) • Available in Square & Beveled Edge Profiles • Available in Low-Leg Profile (partially hides the Frame edges) • Available in Side-Loading options allowing the Fabric to wrap around the edge, completely hiding the Frame (approximately 8” of clearance needed) FRAME Components Overview Vertical Flex-Frame ® Installed on office wall Pre-Made Frame Kits make corners easy Easily frame and outline windows, doors, corners, switches/outlets, and just about anything else you can think of!

20. 20 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) Our ReCore ® Multi-Purpose Insulation can be applied directly to drywall, concrete, CMU, or other ASTM E 84 , Class A material. ReCore ® can be cut and installed using standard tools. ReCore ® can be used as a component of pre-made acoustical and tackable panel systems as well as ceiling tiles, baffles, clouds, diffusers, as flooring underlayment, and as an acoustical component of HVAC systems. Use a Utility Knife to cut the Backing to size so it sits in the Frame flush and can be covered by the Fabric. Use 7/8” 1/4” Crown staples roughly 12” apart to fasten the Backing to the wall. Other attachment types are also available (call for more info). ReCore ® is easy to cut, we recommend using a T-Square for the initial “guide” cut (approximately halfway through ReCore ® ) then following up with an additional pass or two to get a full, clean cut. Other Backings can be used but we highly recommend our ReCore ® Substrate as it offers the most functionality and benefits. TIP : How to Install: Backing

21. 21 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) The Fabric is stretched over the Backing and held taut by the Frame. This allows the panel surface to spring back when struck, effectively mitigating visible damage. The excess Fabric is rolled into the Frame, leaving a clean look that is as functional as it is beautiful. Start by ensuring your Fabric will cover the panel or area you are installing on with 2” - 4” extra over each side. Use the Rocker Tool to lightly press Fabric into jaws assuring it’s straight and even across the top. Now, starting from the top-center moving towards the corners, use the Rocker or Roller Tool to fully tuck the Fabric into the Frame jaws. Make sure to keep the Fabric straight during this process. Use Corner or Rocker Tool to tuck in corners first. Then use Roller Tool to roll the remainder of Fabric into the frame jaws, hiding the excess. Very gently lean Roller Tool to the sides of the jaws while rolling for better results. Repeat the Fabric insertion on the bottom Frame piece. We just want the Fabric held in place, not fully inserted into the jaws until assured it’s straight/ even. Leave yourself some slack for adjustments. Once the Fabric is fully tucked in (including corners) and the panel/area looks good, trim the excess Fabric from around the panel/area edges leaving about 1/4” to 3/4” hanging out. Once the Fabric is all rolled in, you can make minor adjustments by using the Fabric Stretcher Tool. Use sparingly as is only meant for minor adjustments. If used excessively or incorrectly it can damage your Fabric. Follow the same steps for the left and right sides of the panel/area. This is an easy way to keep control of the Fabric, ensuring your installation is straight and aligns properly. Trim the excess Fabric on the corners of the panel/area by cutting within a 1/4” of the corner. If for any reason your Fabric didn’t install correctly, or you’d like to change it out, update it, etc, just pull the Fabric out and start again! How to Install: Fabric

19. 19 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) The finished panel should be square, level, straight, or look good to the eye. Always look over the wall to see if there are any potential problems. When butting up to a wall, door, window or otherwise, leave enough room (approximately 1/16”) for the Frame jaws to open when installing the Fabric, if the Frame is installed too tightly the jaws cannot open and the Fabric can’t be tucked in. TIP : TIP : How to Install: Frame Place Frame staples every 2” or screws every 4” - 6” Frame Kits (shown above) are optional. You may prefer to use Chamfer Cutters at corners. • All lines are snapped to the inside of the Frame. This not only makes it easier to install the Frame but also ensures that no lines will be visible in the finished product. • Measure the flange of your Frame Profile if exact sizing is needed. For Example: If you’re creating a 48” x 48” Panel using the Frame Profile example* shown below, you would snap out a 45.75” x 45.75” Chalk Line. - Measure the flange of the track (1.25”) - Multiply it by 2 (to accommodate for top and bottom or left and right) - Subtract that number from the desired size of the panel (48” - 2.50” = 45.75”) GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU START 1.25” *

16. 16 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) Fabric Features Include FABRIC The Fabric Covering brings the beauty to the system. There are hundreds of unique Fabric lines on the market today offering a m ultitude of colors, styles, textures, and functions to fit every design and budget demand. We’ve selected (and carry) some of our favorite Fabrics to utilize with the system. Not only are they great looking, but they also provide functionality to accompany your installation. Acoustic installations should be faced with a fabric that is acoustically transparent so that sound waves can move through the fabric and be absorbed by the Backing. Acoustic fabrics are great for acoustic panels, home theaters, covering speaker grills, and more! Tackable installations should be faced with a fabric that is self-healing, has durable fibers, and leaves no visible holes. Tackable fabrics are great for anywhere that you need to tack documents, photos, reminders, and more! Wall-Protection installations should be faced with a fabric that can withstand regular and repeated abrasions. Most fabrics with a High- Impact Double-Rub Rating (capable of withstanding over 30,000 Double-Rubs) are suitable for high traffic areas. High Traffic Fabrics can be expected to last in high traffic environments for well over 10 years. Most Fabric manufacturers provide extensive information regarding each of their Fabric lines. This information should be consulted before choosing a Fabric line.

15. 15 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) The Backing Material provides the majority of the functional performance. Once the Frame is installed, the Backing is cut and installed. Available in Slim-Line (1/4”) , Classic-Line1(/2”) , Full-Line (1”) , and Max-Line (2”+) thicknesses, we offer a number of specific types of Backing depending on your application. The Backing is the material that mitigates impact, absorbs sound, insulates walls to a certain degree, and offers tackability. ReCore ® is a semi-rigid polyester board that provides acoustic absorbency, tackable functionality, thermal benefits, and wall protection. ReCore ® is a revolutionary, environmentally responsible insulation and substrate made from 100% non-woven polyester fiber. It is made from 60% post consumer content (recycled plastic beverage containers), and is itself, 100% recyclable, repels moisture and will not grow mold or mildew. Available in multiple thicknesses, densities and colors. It is ideal as acoustic insulation for panels, walls, and ceilings. It is unsurpassed as a tackable surface while simultaneously providing impact-resistant shock absorbency. It can also be used as ceiling tiles, as a duct liner and as a sound deadening medium below carpeting and wood flooring. ReCore ® is available with up to an .90 NRC rating. Roxul is a mineral wool or rock wool. It is forged with basalt rock and slag using a process in which they are superheated and their fibers are then non-directionally bound to create a resistant acoustical substrate. As heat is utilized in the process it gives Roxul excellent heat resistance of temperatures up to 2,150 degrees Fahrenheit. The non-directional fibers also give Roxul a unique orientation that repels and drains water. This is beneficial in that Roxul will retain its shape, wont sag, and it also discourages the promotion of mold, mildew and flames without additives or flame retardants. Roxul also helps to reduce airflow. This higher air flow resistance creates better sound attenuation, making Roxul a good acoustical backing for many different wall finishing solutions. One inch Roxul has an acoustical NRC rating of .70 and two inch Roxul has an NRC of .95. Linacoustic ® combines state-of-the-art facing technology with an advanced coating system to provide the durability of a mat facing with the reliability of a coating. This smooth, strong mat/coating composite delivers a high degree of water resistance and an EPA-registered protective agent to protect the coating from potential growth of fungus and bacteria. Flame-attenuated glass fibers give the Linacoustic® RC core notably better acoustical and thermal properties than other leading liners. This makes it more economical to use because the same or better performance can be obtained with a thinner liner. Linacoustic ® is made from 100% Glass Fibers, supplies Superior Thermal Performance, and has an NRC of 0.55.

18. 18 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) There must be a 1/16” gap between the 2 horizontal pieces of Frame. The vertical pieces must align with the seam. This allows the Fabric to be inserted to create a consistent joint. The goal is to create a clean seam-line for the Fabric. The vertical Frame pieces receive a 50° cut to line them up with the seam created by the horizontal pieces. Square profiles (FS005, FS100, FS150HF, FS150LF) are always used as the vertical piece when connecting two adjacent walls, regardless of edge profile.

17. 17 For technical help, call us at 866-622-2996 or visit our website at FABRICMATE.COM 7 Series (Site-Fab) Tips & Tricks (Before Installing) We recommend using a small (5”-6”) piece of track as a jig. Cut the angles you will utilize the most during installation so you can ensure your Frame is aligned properly as you are installing. The Fabricmate Stretched-Fabric System can be installed over wallpaper and without the need for taping or mudding drywall joints. JIG / GUIDE KEEP YOUR WORK AREA CLEAN One of the most important and often forgotten tips is to clean up your area and wash your hands before installing Fabric. We even recommend going a step further and keeping a box of wet wipes on the job site to regularly clean your hands of dirt, dust, and other debris. Keeping your hands clean during the installation process will ensure that your completed installation is not tainted by grunge, smudges, or stains. DAMAGED, UNFINISHED, OR UNTEXTURED DRYWALL WHERE PANELS MEET THE CEILING There are no layout lines needed when butting up to walls, ceilings, casework, etc. Follow the edge but watch for unusual bends, obstructions, or potential problems. WHERE PANELS MEET THE FLOOR When the panel meets the floor it is better to have the base installed first. If that is not possible, use a wood block to rest the Frame on and follow the contour of the floor, otherwise you will usually have a gap between the panel and base. CLOCKWISE or COUNTER- CLOCKWISE INSTALLATION We recommend installing Frame pieces in a clockwise or counter-clockwise fashion to ensure they all fit together snugly, and are sized correctly. 1 2 3 4 6 5 8 7
