As with all Broadway panels, Accent begins with high density 6lb glass wool for even absorption right down to 200Hz. These 2" thick panels are encapsulated with micromesh and the edges are resin hardened to eliminate dusting. The panel is then finished with an acoustically transparent fabric that is both durable and easy to clean. Three architecturally neutral colors have been carefully chosen to integrate with most room decors. And like the rest of this series, Accent panels are Class-A tested to meet ASTM E 84 and Can/UL S102 flame spread and smoke density for safe use anywhere.
Installation is easy. Accent panels mount directly on the wall surface using Primacoustic Impalers and hang just like a picture. For high traffic areas, adding a dab of construction adhesive sets the panel permanently in place. This means that anyone can install Broadway panels using simple household tools. All you need is a little imagination to create designs that range from graceful curves to dramatic flair. Once in place, Accent panels deliver unsurpassed acoustic performance to control the reverberant field and improve intelligibility.
Broadway Accent panels deliver the look and feel of high-end custom acoustics with ease, convenience and flexibility and at a price that everyone can afford.
The Science of Accent Panels
Accent is part of the Broadway family of acoustic panels differing only with respect to their shape. Typical ‘rectangular’ panels may provide form and function, but those with artistic flair want to add more. They want the acoustic panel to excite the senses. Some call it living on the edge…
As the science behind the Accent acoustical performance is identical to that of the whole Broadway series, we invite you to visit product pages for any of the Broadway Series acoustic panels for more information.
Accent… great looking designs with top notch acoustics… for those that dare to create!
How To Use Accent Panels
Primacoustic Accent panels feature unique designs that can be used on their own or in combination with other Broadway panels to create distinctive shapes and innovative designs. This is amplified by the beveled edges to produce strong architectural lines than can add flair to any room. And just like Broadway panels, Accent panels are extremely easy to mount. They basically hang like pictures on a wall using the surface impalers or can be fitted close together using the push-on impaler.
To help fire up those creative juices, we have created a series of design patterns that you can copy or draw ideas from for your installations. Simply click onto one of the categories below to get started. Accent panels are great for walls and may also be used to create ceiling clouds in restaurants, museum displays and hotel lobbies.

- Stylized panel designs bring flair to room treatment
- Modular concept works with Broadway panels
- High performance 6lb glass wool for maximum absorption
- Unique look without the high cost of custom design
Accent panels are constructed of high density 6lb per cubic foot glass wool with resin hardened edges. This process works in tandem with the micromesh to fully encapsulate the glass wool to eliminate fibers from escaping. Panels are then covered in an acoustically transparent fabric in a choice of three colors for an architecturally attractive appearance.
Mounting is performed using a choice of Primacoustic Impalers: The Surface Impaler provides easy to use push-down impaling action for regular use while the Push-On Impaler is designed for high-speed precision installations where adhesive will be applied for safety.
Accent panels have been tested to meet stringent class-A/I fire ratings making them suitable for use in residential, commercial and industrial spaces and are offered in a variety designs to compliment various acoustical requirements.
