I've called every HVAC company within an hour of me along with the local building warehouses and big box shops with no luck.

I need to order any one of the following and am out of options with my searches.

JM Coated Insul Shield Black 1" 1.5 PCF

Knauf Black Acoustic Board 1" 3.0 PCF

CertainTeed CertaPro AcoustaBlanket Black Type 150 1"

If anyone can link me to a dealer or an alternative that is black and will work for under soffits, front wall (2 layers), and baffle wall that would be great as I've been trying to locate for 3 days now. I can find products that are not black but that is a must as I dont want to paint this stuff.

The only online source I was able to find was Fabricmate. They sell Linacoustic in 50' rolls (for about the price that most pay for 100' rolls if locally sourced), but if you can't find anything locally, you might want to give them a try. They show the 50' rolls on their website. If you need more, maybe they can get you a 100' roll.

I wasn't able to find insul-shield locally either. The JM linacoustic is extremely similar and was much easier to find. When I picked up my 100' roll from my local HVAC shop, they had a big roll of it on a spindle. They use it every day. I would bet your locals would have linacoustic RC.

In addition to checking locally for Johns Manville Linacoustic RC, you should also ask about:

-Johns Manville Duct Liner PM 1" 1.5 PCF
-Knauf Sonic XP 1" 1.5 PCF

Both are black and are very similar to the other products.

All the local HVAC companies dont have a clue what this stuff is called if they are using it. I've called every one within an hour of me and all of them seem puzzled when I mention linacoustic, insul sheild, etc... And the closest JM dealer is about 3.5 hours away and they too seemed puzzled when I told them JM gave me their number to get a quote. They still havent even called back and were the only source for JM. Even if I got it from them I dont see driving that far for it as I'm sure ordering it would be cheaper even if it cost more. I'll check out fabric mate

Simple, when the roll arrives take a piece of white chalk and where it says Linacoustic, cross it out and write

"JM coated Insulshield 1 inch". Look them up, the data is practically the same.

Yeah seems a lot closer than what it really is at the momment. A ship hit the KY bridge a few months ago so Nashville is actually about 3-3.5 hrs away until around July when the bridge is supposed to be fixed.

Yeah I looked at all the similar products and they are all really close to the same numbers. I ordered 3 1" 50' rolls to start the front wall and baffle wall. I'm thinking about using the fabric track system for the soffits and from there decide on using the tracks for the ceiling and walls too.

I just dont know how exactly the tracks intergrate together. Like if I want to use the top inseted track for one section but the side inserted for another, if that is possible? I'm thinking about the under side of the soffits in this example. Like where the wall will join the track but then on the other side the fabric will need to be pushed in from the side. Then the soffit splitting the room will need two side tracks but on the ends where is against the wall would need top insertion. I'm gonna give them a call since I didnt place dead wood everywhere there would need to be a track stapled to drywall and the mentioned questions.

Oh, before this thread can die away, what is the best tool to cut this stuff cleanly with nice straight edges?

lay flat on the floor, place a soft wood board underneath or cut on your riser or stage. Use a drywall t-square as a straight edge with a fresh blade in a utility knife.

Thanks Big! Didnt want to wear ya out on the PM any further. I went with the 24" carpet protector. Figured it would be easier for one person job.

You wouldnt happen to know about using two different 1" track systems within one panel section would you? I just dont know how it would transition around the 90' turn from one clamp position to another.

I used the knauf sonic xp for my screenwall. Knauf seems to be much easier to find in my area.

Yeah I couldnt find any anywhere near me and the only place that did say they could order wouldnt return my calls. That place was 3 hours away so I just ordered from fabricmate. They have great cusomer service and got me what I needed when I ran out really fast.

The bridge is still under construction so Nashville is quite a ways away for another couple weeks. Still cant believe the ship just tore straight through the bridge. Had to of been some sort of drinking or sleeping going on in the wheel house that night!
