FELT RIGHT SOLUTIONS:

the Mirror Trick

Surface Area
Where should you install Felt Right acoustic tiles? Any hard and flat surface in your space is fair game and can improve room acoustics by absorbing unwanted sound reflections. In cases where the sound source and listener don’t move much (watching TV on the couch, video calls at your desk), you can use a method known as the “mirror trick” to find a room’s “first reflection points” which are often fantastic locations to apply acoustic treatments.
MIRROR TRICK IN 3 Easy STEPS
Performance
A Small Mirror
Concentration
A Friend
Focus
Something to mark the walls/ceilings, etc
Step 1.

GET IN POSITION:

Make sure the sound source is in its normal position in the room. Sit or stand in your usual spot in the room, facing the direction you normally face. Stay there.
Step 2.

MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL:

Have your friend place a mirror on any flat, hard surfaces close by and move it around until you see the sound source in the mirror from your position.
Step 3.

MAKE YOUR MARK:

Have your friend mark the “reflection point” where you saw the sound source in the mirror, and continue searching for reflection points if desired.
Reflection Points
Un-treated first reflection points often make it harder for listeners (people & microphones) to understand audio sources (someone speaking, tv, etc). Use these points as center points for installing Felt Right acoustic tile designs. Don’t worry if the reflection point doesn’t fall exactly in the center of a design, as long as you cover the reflection point and some of the surrounding area. Usually you will find a minimum of 2 to 3 reflection points (walls, floors, ceiling, etc) and covering them with a combination of Felt Right tiles and simple treatments like throw rugs or heavy drapes can do wonders for improving your room’s acoustics.
MIRROR TRICK EXAMPLES
PODCASTING & ZOOM CALLS
Step 1.
Sit or stand in the position you would normally be when talking into your microphone/webcam. Stay there.
Step 2.
Starting with nearby walls, have your friend place a mirror on any flat, hard surfaces close by and move it around until you see the microphone/webcam’s reflection in the mirror from your position.
Step 3.
Have your friend mark the reflection point where you saw the microphone/webcam in the mirror, and continue searching for reflection points if desired.
Step 4.
Install sound absorbing materials like Felt Right acoustic tiles at the reflection points you found.
CONVERSATIONS WITH CO-WORKERS
Step 1.
Sit or stand at your individual work areas where you commonly talk to one another.
Step 2.
Starting with nearby walls, have a third person place a mirror on any flat, hard surfaces close by and move it around until you see your co-worker’s face reflected in the mirror. Wave hello :)
Step 3.
Have the person holding the mirror mark the reflection point where you saw your co-worker, and continue searching for reflection points if desired.
Step 4.
Install sound absorbing materials like Felt Right acoustic tiles at the reflection points you found.
You can repeat the process above for different sound sources and/or listening positions. This is especially common when, for example, you’re seated at your work area and move around a lot; perhaps sitting back, leaning forward, moving from one side of your desk to the other. If you target first reflection points to include the extremes of your listening area, you’ll be working toward what audio engineers and hi-fi enthusiasts call a larger “sweet spot” for listening. In the acoustic treatment options section, you’ll learn what it takes to both improve your room’s sweet spot and reduce overall reverberation time.

What Gives Felt Right Tiles Their High-Quality, Beautiful Appearance?

Our felt panels have a warm, wool-like appearance with durable and wear-resistant constructions. Using a high-density, engineered PET felt board, beautiful chamfered edges, and engraved patterns that reflect your creativity, we fabricate our felt wall tiles to your exact specifications. 

How Effective are Felt Right Tiles at Dampening Sound?

Felt Right tiles have an NRC (noise reduction coefficient) of .35.  That means they absorb roughly 35% of the sound they come in contact with.  Felt Right’s tiles often have a noticeable effect on your space’s acoustics, but the level they affect your sound depends on the surface.   

Will My Tiles Work With Pins?

Felt Right tiles work with pins because we make them using high-quality, dense PET felt board. The PET felt board makes them perfect for pinning and repinning as many times as you want.

What Are Felt Right Tiles Made From?

We make Felt Right tiles from 100% PET plastic. Using PET plastic improves our sustainability and reduces our environmental impact. By reclaiming at least 50% of the plastic we use from discarded water bottles, we keep four water bottles out of the waste stream with every 12x12 felt wall tile we use. 

How Do Felt Right Tiles Contribute to Healthy Indoor Air Quality?

Felt Right tiles adhere to strict quality standards and ensure our products  do not contain any red-list chemicals or materials harmful to your health . Our materials have also been tested to confirm they do not emit any harmful gasses into the places where you install your designs.

Where Are Felt Right Tiles Made?

We make our felt panels in-house in Salt Lake City, UT. Our headquarters are located at the base of the beautiful Wasatch Mountain Range,  which provide a backdrop almost as beautiful as our custom felt wall designs. 

What Are the Felt Right Tile Sizes?

Felt Right tiles come in 6 distinct sizes that are designed to work together in our Design Studio:

Square 12x12 (11 7/8 actual)
Triangle 12x12 (11 7/8 actual)
Shiplap 24x6 (23 3/4 x 5 15/16 actual)
Half 12x6 (11 7/8 x 5 15/16 actual)
Quarter 6x6 (5 15/16 actual)

Pixel 3x3

Please note that dimensions are nominal and exact dimensions are slightly smaller (for example: 12” tiles are actually 11 ⅞”). All tiles are 3/8 inches thick.

Can Tiles Be Cut on Site to Specific Sizes?

Yes, we can cut our tiles to specific sizes and dimensions using  a craft knife and a straight edge.

What Is the Tile Thickness?

Felt Right tiles are ⅜ inch or 9mm thick.

Do Felt Right Tiles Reduce Sound Transmission From or Through a wall?

Our felt tiles deaden sound transmission from nearby spaces. Multiple customer reviews highlight this benefit. However, we have not fully calibrated Felt Right tiles Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC), so we can’t accurately calculate the sound reduction range.  

Do Felt Right Tiles Meet Flammability Requirements for Commercial Applications?

Yes. Made with material that has undergone ASTM E-84 testing, our felt panels are considered a Class B material for commercial specifications.

Will Quilting Fabric Designs Stick to Felt Right Tiles Without Pins?

No. Quilting designs will not stick to Felt Right tiles without pins. However, many quilters use  pin boards to showcase their designs.

What Is Required to Install My Felt Right Tiles?

We use easy-installation methods for our felt tiles that only require a tape measure, level, and pencil. After aligning your first few tiles, your design should be easy to complete. Most felt wall designs take less than an hour. 

Are Adhesive Tabs Included in My Felt Right Order?

Every order of Felt Right tiles comes with plenty of adhesive tabs for installation. We also provide  a few extra just in case you lose a few.

Can I Purchase Extra Adhesive Tabs?

Yes, to purchase extra adhesive tabs, visit our Shop section.

Are Felt Right Tiles Safe For My Walls?

Yes. Felt Right tiles utilize our proprietary, paint-safe adhesive and can be uninstalled damage-free when removed properly. Upon removal, the tile is first separated from the wall, leaving the tabs on the wall surface. The tabs are then removed from the wall by rolling them off with your thumb or fingers.

How Easy Is It to Clean Felt Right Tiles?

Our felt wall panels are easy to clean and maintain. To remove dust, all you need is a vacuum wand or hose. For spot cleaning, all you need is a damp rag or household cleaner to spray the tiles and wipe them down. For high-traffic, commercial applications, you can disinfect Felt Right tiles with common cleaning products.

Can I Relocate a Tile Once It’s in Place?

Of course. We include extra adhesive tabs in all of our orders. These extra tabs let you reposition one or two tiles during the installation process. If you find you need to move more tiles, you can always order extra adhesive squares.

How Should Felt Right Tiles Best Be Positioned to Dampen Sound?

Sound waves will typically reverberate between parallel surfaces. Because of this, positioning your felt wall panels on parallel walls is most useful to interrupt sound wave reverberation. 

Can the Tiles Be Used in Ceiling Applications?

Yes, you can use Felt Right tiles in ceiling applications. However, we do recommend using Felt Right Commercial-Grade adhesive tabs to create a stronger, semi-permanent bond.

Can Felt Right Tiles Be Used in Flooring Applications?

You should not use Felt Right tiles for flooring applications.

Do the Tiles Stick to Textured Walls?

Felt Right adhesive tabs conform to most surfaces, including painted cinder block and textured walls.

Will Tiles Match if I Want to Add New Tiles to an Existing Design?

Generally, yes, however we do experience some dye-lot variation, particularly with the grey colors.

Dye-lot variations are typically not noticeable unless the tiles are placed next to each other. If you are ordering new tiles that will go next to existing tiles, you may want to just give us a quick heads up so we can help make sure you don't experience significant dye-lot issues.

No problem. You can return your order for any reason within the first 30 days after your purchase.

Uninstallation

How do I uninstall tiles without damaging paint?

There are 2 important steps to uninstalling felt Right tiles without damaging paint:

Step 1: Carefully separate each tile from the adhesive tabs. Tiles are removed, leaving the tabs on the wall surface. This is done by inserting fingers between the tile and the wall, away from the tab location and gradually applying pressure until the tile separates from tabs. Avoid pulling the tile directly away from the wall in an abrupt or forceful manner as the tile needs time to release from the tabs.

Step 2: Roll the tabs off the wall. Once the tile has been removed from the wall, leaving the tabs, then remove each tab from the wall. This is done by starting at a corner of the tab, applying pressure and rolling the tab off of the wall with your finger or thumb. Avoid pulling the tab directly away from the wall.

If you have difficulty getting the tab to begin rolling, you can use a block pencil eraser to start the process.
