Size refers to depth. The deeper the track, the thicker the acoustical substrate can be, allowing for greater sound absorption.

For most situations such as conference rooms, offices, etc., our economical 9.5 or 12.5 mm thickness is generally adequate. Frequencies of the normal voice range can be absorbed very effectively with these thicknesses and appropriate acoustical substrates. Larger depths are usually not neccessary for those areas. In spacious areas, busily populated areas or areas where business machines are located, our profiles are made in larger depth sizes to accommodate the appropriate sound absorption: 12.5, 16 and 25 mm.
In highly demanding environments such as recording studios or theaters, virtually any thickness substrate material is possible. SNAP-TEX is simply battened to any depth required! The extra depth also allows for more pronounced edge detail. Often, our larger depths are specified because they have high aesthetic quality as well as high acoustical performance.

Track style is defined by the edge detail that will result along the perimeter of the panel section. By defining the edge detail of the track, the panel edges take on different design features. Panel sections may thus be subtle, with individual sections barely noticeable, or clearly distinct, adding architectural interest

SNAP-TEX currently offers three varying edge details:

Square edges are typically used where panel edges or seams are to be as unobtrusive as possible. An alternate to this look is to simply sew fabric sections together and stretch each wall as one large panel! The look will be almost identical to "square" track edges, and proves to be more economical.

Radius edges create a soft, subtle look that telegraphs the message that the wall is upholstered. The more pronounced the radius edging is, i.e., the larger/deeper the radius edge track is, the more the panel section will appear as an upholstered, pillow-like section. As with each of the profiles, the surface fabric will be tautly stretched with no 'pillowing' effect as is customary with traditional wall upholstery, unless of course that look is desired. If it is desired, that look can also be achieved by adding flame retardant polyfil.

Beveled edges define crisp, clean, diagonal lines tending to be more tailored and contemporary in nature. An illusion of architectural detail is created. Again, the larger or deeper the track size, the more pronounced the beveled edge will be.
