Transform your Acoustics

The Power of Sound Control

“Acoustics” describes the quality of sound within an interior space. When a room has “good acoustics,” it’s a suitable place to have conversations, listen to music, or study. Fortunately, you don’t need to be an acoustics expert to treat your home or office with sound-dampening products. Our Felt Right felt tiles can help control unwanted noise in your space and find peace and relaxation.
Sound VS. Noise

Noise
The distinction between “sound” and “noise” depends on you. One person’s sound can be another person’s noise. Both illustrations above show the same sound waves (lines with arrows) being experienced both as noise and sound by different listeners. Excess noise in a home or business environment can have a negative impact on

You Ask. We Answer
5 Rules of Thumb
At Felt Right, we listen to your feedback and work to answer your questions. Below we answer the most asked.
Surface Area
How much surface area do I need to cover?
Depending on your 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. If your space is larger with mostly hard surfaces, you will likely want to cover additional surface area. Some customers opt to cover an entire wall or significant parts of two adjacent walls. You can also introduce large, soft, absorptive surfaces like couches, throw pillows, and rugs to compliment the benefits of Felt Right tiles.
Where do I place
Where do I place my felt wall tiles for maximum benefit?
Any open wall is a good candidate for Felt Right tiles and covering some portion of a single wall will be helpful. Placing tiles on two adjacent walls to reduce reverberation in both directions can also be effective. Finally, if the sound source and the listener or microphone are in fixed locations, we recommend placing tiles at first reflection points using the mirror trick (link) to maximize effectiveness. Every bit of acoustic treatment counts so place the tiles wherever it feels right to you.
Stop Adjacent Sound
How do I best stop sound coming from an adjacent space?
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 in order to reduce sound bridging can be an effective part of the solution. Keep in mind it is also important to do things like seal up air gaps as even tiny air gaps let in a lot of sound. For example, you can use draft stoppers to block gaps under interior doors, and seal door jambs with soft neoprene gaskets.
How Much sound
How much sound will felt right tiles reduce (what does .35 NRC mean?)?
Felt Right tiles are designed to absorb sound reflections off of hard surfaces and NRC is the percent of sound they absorb (35%) on average wherever they’re placed (i.e. they reduce the reflected energy by 35%). It’s important to note that absorption percentage varies for different sound frequencies. Our tiles generally absorb frequencies above 300 Hz (see NRC chart), and perform especially well (60-100% absorption) in the range critical to human speech intelligibility (between 1.4 Khz and 8 kHz) where consonant sounds such as “k”, “s”, and “t” are found.
Can I add more later
Can I add more later?
Absolutely! Managing sound in your space is often a bit of a trial and error process. We encourage you to purchase what you feel is reasonable for your space and your budget. You can always add more tiles if you find that you prefer more sound absorption or if the layout or use of your space changes. We’ll be here to help you navigate those decisions!

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.
