Wall Mounting Hardware for Acoustic Panels

Does anyone have suggestions for suspending absorptive panels from the wall, and also from a slanted ceiling? I am constructing my own panels from Owens Corning 703 (rigid fiberglass) set within wooden frames and covered with cotton cloth. I need to find some good hardware to mount them on the wall. I've heard some mention of velcro, but don't fully trust it unless I were to hot blue the receiving side onto strips of wood and screw the wood into the wall. Has anyone hung panels to recommend some hardware alternatives?

Thanks, Peter S.
For vertical walls plain old picture hangers work fine. You can tack the bottoms with velcro or blue tack to prevent vibration or movement. For a slanted wall you might try slotted hanging hardware-the little plates with a large hole that tapers to a slightly narrower slot so you can put a screw head through the hole and then slide the object to be hung so the screw heads goes into the slot. Know the type I mean?
I just bought a # of panels from RPG, and the came with what they call impaling clips. Basically they are about 4" square flat plates with a # of protruding spikes at 45 degree angles. First you screw them into the wall. Then after determining the desired height, you place the panel one inch above that height. By pressing in and down, the panel is held securely against the wall, perfectly flush. They work brilliantly. If you go to RPG's web site, you can find more info.
Thanks Carl,

Here is a link to the impailing clips, although I've been told they are probably available at Home Depot.


How many did you put up per panel? How big were your panels?

But here is the ultimate link for panel mounting hardware, with schematics and mail order accessability!

Hi Peter
My panels are 2' x 6'. I used 6 per panel, but I probably could have gotten away with 4. For my ceiling panels - which are 2' x 2' x 4" deep and a bit heavier, I used the z clips. Basically, RPG installed 2 on the back side of the panels, and I put the other two on the ceiling. Then you slide the panel in place. It's a little tricky in terms of getting panels to line up perfectly, but if you are careful, and leave a little play in the clips, it works really well.
Good Luck

on my wall hung Echo Busters I went to Home Depot and bought a long hollowed out two inch thick wood curtain dowel. I then cut these in 2 inch pieces and fastened them to the panels. THis help both the back and front of the panel absorb and difusse the reflected sound and really help lower some slap echo. As for hanging them I just used the hanger on the back and screwed a bolt into the wall for each. The clips mentioned above might work on the end of these dowels. Enjoy your project and happy listening

Any ideas for flush mounting something like a ASC Sound Panel without using valcro? I'm thinking holes might be better than pealing off the paint on the ceiling.
Hi Peter,

I am planning on doing the same thing only difference is that my panel would hang over the window during listening sessions and removed when not.
