** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** CFAB cellulose panels are an industry first cellulose-based material. Consisting of 65-75% recycled content, CFAB cellulose products represent a very green solution for acoustical materials. They are an innovative, yet sustainable, alternative to traditional fiberglass and synthetic acoustical and thermal panels, and are true performers in a variety of different applications. Can be used in any area that calls for acoustical or thermal treatment. They can be covered with fabric or other decorative material. Typical applications include but are not limited to insulation components, office panels, acoustic panels/inserts, and any molded, flat panel or lofted parts. Delete if not required.
