The Offset Impaler from Primacoustic is used to provide the installer with a simple, quick and effective method of mounting Broadway fiberglass acoustic panels onto wall surfaces while creating an air cavity behind the panel to increase bass absorption. The impaler features a U-shaped design that elevates the panel from the wall surface by 3.5 inches, making it easy to align with typical 2 x 4 studs.
The 20 gauge galvanized steel impaler features a series of sharp protruding darts that penetrate the panel to secure it in place during installation. To ensure panels do not get dislodged after installation, applying a dab of construction adhesive to the impaler darts during the mounting process adds a level of security and reduces opportunity for tampering.
Impalers are installed using typical sheetrock anchors and screws. Maximum load limit is 12 lbs, dependent on the wall fasteners.
