What is the AEC TrackSystem?
The AEC TrackSystem is a site-fabricated stretched fabric system. There are 3 basic components:
- Polymer Track – the track is attached to a wall or ceiling substrate with many different depth and profile options.
- Core – the core options can be acoustical, non-acoustical, tackable, magnetic, or a combination of these.
- Face Material – a variety of materials can be used with in the AEC TrackSystem from acoustical panel fabrics, vinyls and leathers; however, there are some materials that will not work well with track systems. Take a look at the next question for more information on this topic.
What fabrics should be used with AEC TrackSystem?
Many fabrics work fine with the track system. Look for fabrics that are acoustically transparent or neutral (usually labeled by the fabric vendor as an acoustical panel fabric). But watch out for some that don’t. Fabrics that contain rayon, linen, silk, nylon are NOT SUITABLE due to the fabric instability which can cause it to expand and contract on vertical surfaces. Fabrics with a paper or acrylic backing will not be suitable for an acoustical application. Also, make sure the fabric is fire-rated for a non-attached vertical or horizontal application.
Okay, what are your panel sizes?
The site-fabricated system is only limited by the width of the face material you select. Just give us 2” on each side for tucking the material. The panels can be vertical, horizontal, odd shapes, or even circles. What can you dream up?
Where do I use AEC TrackSystem?
The beauty of using a stretched fabric system is for the great acoustical benefits, however the system can do much much more.
