The Environment

Mid-Atlantic Specialties is your partner in environmentally conscious interior renovations and new construction.

We are committed to providing high quality acoustical wall panels that are aesthetically pleasing, are technically superior, and will reduce chemical emissions. These products contribute to LEED credits in the Materials & Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality categories.

Panels

Because our panels are field-fabricated on site we can build to the existing conditions, reducing waste and ensuring your project meets your design vision. We are pleased to offer services that will help you reduce the impact of development while also contributing toward LEED credits.

Here is how we can help:

  • Our services reduce the waste created by mismeasured pre-fabricated panels or by field conditions that changed after the panels were ordered.
  • Accu-Snap┬« technology means fabric is wrapped and tucked to the track. This reduces the amount of adhesive required for installation compared to other systems.
  • Fabric can easily be updated or replaced without damaging the panel system, preventing landfill waste and extending the usable life of the panels.
  • Knauf Acoustical Board Insulation is Greenguard Certified, made with no urea-added formaldehyde, and has a minimum of 25% post-consumer recycled content.
  • 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive meets the LEED EQ 4.1 criteria for aerosol adhesives.

Fabric

We can use virtually any fabric specified for the project and have partnered with True Textile because of their dedication to sustainably-manufactured products and processes. Many of our fabric manufacturers are providing more environmentally-friendly products and processes, including:

  • Fabrics made from 100% recycled polyester, using post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and renewable materials such as corn-based PLA
  • Sourcing up to 20% of their electricity from renewable sources for the manufacturing mills
  • Utilizing environmentally-friendly materials and manufacturing processes while remaining economically competitive to traditional materials
  • Reclaiming used fabrics and returning them to the supply chain as raw materials
