We recently completed the first major Australian installation of the exciting new Autex Etch fabric. This was part of a major $8.3 million refurbishment and extension of Toowoomba Town Hall in regional Queensland.
Working with Sims White Architects, our expert installers produced a high-quality finish to the entry and auditorium of this much-loved, heritage-listed building. This enhanced the building’s function for current and future civic use. The team worked with photos of the original structure and design. This ensured the former colours were reproduced and the authentic look was reinstated.
The acoustic panels set behind the Autex Etch fabric
What is Autex Etch?
Autex Etch is an innovative wall fabric. It combines design, colour, texture and acoustic management properties. This new product is available in a palette of 28 colours and 15 standard patterns. Alternatively, you can choose your own custom design, cut and pattern. You can also incorporate your business branding or logo into the design.
The product is suitable to overlay directly to your chosen surface as a wallcovering. Alternatively, it can be installed together with an acoustic backing option for acoustic absorption. On the Toowoomba project, we used 50mm Autex paneling behind the decorative Etch fabric in custom-made print. This helped improve the acoustic properties of the venue.
Decorative, functional and durable by design, Autex Etch can be used in any space where acoustic properties are important. This includes schools, churches, theatres, libraries, gyms, studios, retail or office space. Not only does Autex Etch enhance the acoustics and visual appeal of wall space, it can also be used as a pinboard.
The outstanding final result achieved with Autex Etch
Expert installation is the key to success
Our highly professional installers worked in conjunction with NorthBuild on the site. Due to the height of the ceilings in the Town Hall, our installers worked on 5-metre high scaffolding to expertly create the custom finish. The ceiling installation was completed using 25mm thick, 1.2 x 2.4 m ceiling panels of Autex white overlay for a clean ceiling finish.
