Installation Recommendations for Echo Eliminator™ Bonded Acoustical Cotton Panels

Cleaning & Maintenance

Accumulation of dust and dirt are best removed with a soft brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner. Use vacuum attachments with at least 1″ soft brushes to avoid damage to panel. Do not use water or cleaning solutions.

Cutting & Trimming

For field cutting panels of any size or thickness we recommend that the product be cut on a table saw with a standard 8″ round blade with no teeth (similar to a meat carving blade).

1″ material can be cut straight through with one pass. 2″ or thicker material should be cut halfway through the thickness of the material, then flipped over and cut again along the same line. This cutting method will deliver the same square edge detail that the product was originally delivered with.

Wall Installation — Adhesive

  • Make sure that the surface to which the panels are being applied to is clean and free from dust in order to ensure a good bonding contact.
  • Using PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive, cut the nozzle of the cartridge for a ¼” bead of adhesive.
  • Apply adhesive from corner to corner on the panel in an X zig-zag pattern, then a perimeter ¼” bead, ¾” from edges.
  • OPTIONAL For a fast, instant attachment:
    • Apply a 6″ circle of spray-on AGS12 Adhesive in each of the quadrants as show in the diagram.
    • Apply pressure to both the bead adhesive and the sprayed areas.
    • The spray on adhesive will keep the panel in place while the bead of S.T.O.P. NOISE ACOUSTICAL ADHESIVE (PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive) cures to provide a long lasting permanent bond.

Overhead Ceiling Installation ? Adhesive

When installing Echo Eliminator to a ceiling it is recommended to use AGS12 Spray Adhesive in conjunction with PSA29 adhesive or PGPSA Adhesive.

  • Make sure that the surface to which the panels are being applied to is clean and free from dust in order to ensure a good bonding contact.
  • Using PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive, cut the nozzle of the cartridge for a ¼” bead of adhesive.
  • Apply adhesive from corner to corner on the panel in an X zig-zag pattern, then a perimeter ¼” bead, ¾” from edges.
  • Apply a 6″ circle of spray-on AGS12 Adhesive in each of the quadrants as shown below in the diagram.
  • Apply pressure to both the bead adhesive and the sprayed areas. The spray on adhesive will keep the panel in place while the bead of PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive cures to provide a long lasting, permanent bond.
  • Before attaching the panel to the ceiling, make an X shape on the ceiling with the PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive. This ensures a permanent bond. Failure to add PSA29 or PGPSA Adhesive to the ceiling before attaching to the panel can result in the panels detaching from the ceiling.

Overhead Ceiling Installation — Impaling Clip/Pressure Pin

  • Determine panel location.
  • Determine clip location. Two options (for 2×4 Panel):
  • Fasten clip to ceiling using construction adhesive and 1¼” drywall screw.
  • Impale panel onto pins.
  • Attach lock washer.
  • Cut off excess pin length.
