What Our SNAP-TEX Service Offers

Do you love the look of fabric panelling on the walls or ceilings of a room design? Or maybe you need an attractive and functional way to improve the acoustics of a room with a sound absorbing material? SNAP-TEX is a great system that can fulfil either of these needs functionally, aesthetically, and economically.

SNAP-TEX is a commercial, site-installed, and highly customised process that allows us to tightly stretch fabric over acoustical or other substrate material on the walls or ceilings of a room. Because we install it on-site, it will fit perfectly into adjacent walls or other building features with no gaps or ill-fitting panels. Our custom work will also prevent the fabric from sagging, a standard issue among pre-manufactured panelling.

Before installing the SNAP-TEX panels, we first secure a track around the perimeter of each panel section either on the walls or ceilings. From here, affixing the panels to the track is easy, and the durability and damage-resistance nature of SNAP-TEX ensure that it will last and last. Better yet, when the time does come that your SNAP-TEX starts to look stained or shabby, its specially designed jaw and hinge can be opened for easy fabric cleaning or replacement without damage to the wall or mounting surface.

SNAP-TEX is a great option for sports halls, cinemas, studios, industrial enclosures, and plant rooms looking to effectively reduce echoes and provide consistent sound absorption while maintaining an attractive fabric exterior. In fact, SNAP-TEX panels covered in eye-catching fabric (especially if the panels are an interesting shape or hung in an interesting pattern) can even act as artwork in a space, becoming both a functional and fashionable aspect of the room.

The SNAP-TEX process offers significant flexibility in design and cost-saving options, making it stand out from other acoustical and fabric wall treatments. Almost any fabric can be used in the SNAP-TEX process as well as any substrate material of any thickness. The limitation on the size and shape of a SNAP-TEX panel depends only on the length and width of the selected fabric. As long as the fabric size can accommodate the size and design you have in mind, we can custom create almost any shape of a panel for you. A variety of edge detailing for the panels is also available to ensure that they blend into the surrounding design and architectural features.

We can work with all thicknesses and levels of acoustic insulation available; however, the most commonly used thickness is the 25 or 50-millimetre option, and the most common shape panel we create with SNAP-TEX is the square profile.

Our main supplier for the acoustical substrate material is Martini Absorb, which is manufactured from the thermally bonded polyester fibre with up to 80% recycled fibre content from post-consumer packaging such as empty drink bottles. The product is 100% recyclable and has very high reuse potential as insulation so that you can feel good about the environmental impact of the final SNAP-TEX product.
