1 in 6 individuals have a sensory need. A majority of these people have invisible disabilities, which means their challenges are not often visible to the naked eye. Some of these include autism, PTSD, Down Syndrome, early-onset dementia, and more. Up to 15% of the population suffers from some form of SPD(sensory processing disorder). Felt Right is committed to creating environments which foster a feeling of safety, security and inclusion.
Felt Right partners with KultureCity, a leading US-based non-profit organization focused on creating sensory inclusive™ spaces in order to address the needs of those individuals with invisible disabilities. These spaces are often located in large public spaces such as airports, schools, sports arenas, and shopping centers.
Sound Control FAQ
How Much Sound Will
Felt Tiles Reduce?
Felt Right tiles are designed to absorb sound reflections off of hard surfaces with a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.35. This means they reduce the reflected energy by 35% on average wherever they’re placed. Absorption percentage varies for different sound frequencies. Our acoustic panels generally absorb frequencies above 300 Hz and perform especially well (60-100% absorption) in the range critical to human speech (between 1.4 Khz and 8 kHz).
Sound Control FAQ
How Much Surface Area Do
I Need To Cover?
Depending on room size, we suggest covering a minimum area of either 3’ x 4’ or 4’ x 6’ with Felt Right acoustic tiles to help reduce unwanted room noise. The more area you cover, the more benefit you’ll hear. Larger spaces with hard surfaces will require more coverage.

Sound Control FAQ
Where Do I Place My Tiles
For Maximum Benefit?
Any open wall is a good candidate for Felt Right tiles. And every bit of acoustic treatment counts. Placing tiles on two adjacent walls to reduce reverberation in both directions can be very effective. Finally, if the sound source and the listener are in fixed locations, placing tiles at first reflection points using the mirror trick (link) will maximize effectiveness.
Sound Control FAQ
How Do I Best Stop Sound
Coming From An Adjacent
Reducing sound coming from an adjacent space is a more complex issue to address and may require a multi-pronged approach. Our customers have found that covering the entire wall with Felt Right tiles can be an effective part of the solution. Keep in mind that it is also important to do things like seal up air gaps as even tiny air gaps let in a lot of sound.
Sound Control FAQ
Can I Add More Tiles Later
If I Need To?
Absolutely! Managing sound in your space is often a bit of a trial and error process. We recommend you to purchase what you feel is reasonable for your space and your budget. You can always add more felt wall panels if you find that you prefer more sound absorption or if the layout or use of your space changes. It’s so easy to get your felt panels installed, it’ll only take a few minutes to add even more sound sound-dampening power to your space.

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.
