Project Description

The BAD Panel is the ultimate synergy of advanced acoustical technology and simplicity of design for when performance is paramount but budgets are modest. Using an optimal binary pattern of perforations through a Class A fire rated rigid template, the BAD Panel achieves an excellent balance of sound absorption across the NRC frequency bands while preserving the ambience of the space. In all, this unique surface eliminates excessive high frequency absorption, transitions to a scattering surface in the very high frequencies, prevents lobing inherent in common perforated surfaces and significantly improves mid and low frequency absorption.

Traditional foam and fabric wrapped absorptive panels offer a cost effective, low profile approach to providing reflection and reverberation control. However, these panels offer too much high frequency absorption and large area application may lead to an acoustically “dead” space.

RPG® developed a decorative and innovative variable impedance panel by fabric wrapping an optimal binary template consisting of reflective areas and holes over a semi rigid fiberglass panel. As with all its products, RPG offers complete, quality assured custom panel fabrication that provides a simple and reliable fixed or removable mounting.


  • Offers a cost effective, efficient and balanced acoustical signature for reverberation control while promoting a natural “ambient” acoustic environment.
  • Select from industry standard and custom fabrics, fabrics with proof of performance acoustical data preferred.
  • Edge termination options include 12 mm chamfer, 12 mm radius, full bevel, square and custom profiles.
  • Lightweight, decorative and easy to install with RPG’s impaling clip.
  • All components are Class A Fire Rated.

BAD™ Panels can be easily and quickly hung on any wall surface using RPG’s Impalit™ clip. For ceiling applications, the panels can be either direct mounted with Z-bar attachments or suspended using a cloud anchor kit. Panels can also be configured to install in a standard T-bar grid. See details below under the Drawings tab.
