Boston University School of Management: Snap-Tex Acoustic Wall Panels


Crafting pride on the inside...

Snap-Tex is the industry-leading acoustical stretched fabric mounting system for walls, ceilings and other interior surfaces. Engineered for superior function and design flexibility, Snap-Tex brings acoustic control to interior architecture without sacrificing aesthetics.

The essence of the Snap-Tex system is its patented locking Snap-Tex track which sets the industry standard for strength and reliability. An integrated hinge allows for easy fabric repair or replacement.

Snap-Tex is a commercial, Class A, site-installed highly customizable system for tightly stretching fabric over acoustical substrates. Snap-Tex is typically used on walls and ceilings but is adaptable to any surface.

The unique design of Snap-Tex offers many advantages over other acoustical stretched fabric and premanufactured wall treatments. Snap-Tex has far more flexibility in terms of design, lead-time and value engineering opportunities. It accepts virtually any fabric, as well as substrate materials of any thickness, while having few limitations to the size or shape of the panel. Size limitation is based only on the fabric width or the availability of the fabric to be sewn to the desired panel size. Snap-Tex has numerous edge profiles of various thickness as well as single-track midwall configurations.

Unlike premanufactured acoustical wall panels and other site built stretched fabric treatments, Snap-Tex is able to resolve the inherent weaknesses in other products attempting to perform its function.

  • Efficient sound absorption, diffusion or reflection
  • Tackability
  • Highly aesthetic and unique

For years I visualized BSBSI as this roll-top-desk purveyor of slate blackboards! I entrusted Bay State with almost a dozen different products on a pharmaceutical project with an impossible six-month schedule. It proved to be a prudent decision, as Bay State delivered and installed three-quarters of a million dollars worth of specialties. Bay State is without a doubt the premier specialty contractor in the Greater Boston Area.
