Fellert North America and its network of sales representatives are continually presenting and fielding questions regarding the Fellert Acoustical Plaster system. One of the most frequent questions we receive from architects and designers is, “How can we change the color of our Fellert Acoustical Plaster ceiling or wall without losing any of its sound absorption capability?”
Our answer is ProCoat’s acoustical coating, ProCoustic. We have tested ProCoustic in our labs and found it to perform as claimed. The flexibility it provides us is invaluable. The option of matching any color in the Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore color palette gives the owner the opportunity to “refresh” the look of the room and still retain the sound control that is critical to making the space liveable and productive for work.
In addition, there are bold and deep colors that we cannot tint for new construction. In those instances, we again turn to ProCoustic. ProCoustic helps us satisfy the designers vision on those “hard to create” colors.
In short, we have been thoroughly pleased with both the product and the service we have received from the fine folks at ProCoat!

“ProCoat’s ceiling restoration program for the retail industry has reaped benefits (more than 900,000 sq. ft.) on my projects over the past 12 years. We get positive feedback from general contractors regarding the quality of service. Store managers are always impressed when they open fresh and clean in the morning without the down-time and clean-up to contend with that is common with ceiling tile replacement.”

“I am just looking over our before and after pictures of our ceiling restoration recently completed by your company and I am amazed at the difference. The cost savings compared to replacing the old ones was enough to sell me to start and then the professionalism of your crew was great. Everything went as planned, on a busy weekend your crew came just before closing went through and masked everything as promised no overspray anywhere. The entire store done in just two nights making our ceiling look new after over twenty years of dirt, water stains and wear and tear.”

__________________________________________________________________”Over more than a 25 year period, I have been actively involved in construction services for the retail industry … part of that time as a retailer seeking the services and later as a contractor providing them. During that time, I have identified a number of technologies and providers that are unique, efficient, and dependable. One of those is the restoration of acoustical ceilings, utilizing the technology developed by ProCoat and the installation program they manage on projects across the country. No matter where the project may be, large or small, or a complete program rollout, one call is all that is needed. I think it is great.”

Their system restores the ceilings to a bright white, stain free finish and their applicators leave the space clean and ready for use. I will continue to use their service and products (including the maintenance items) in our facilities.”

“For many years we have been providing a number of specialty services throughout the NJ, NY, CT, PA area, including the restoration of acoustical ceilings. We found that most owners and building managers were concerned with the potential loss of acoustical properties and tiles sticking to the grids when conventionally painted. By using ProCoat products we have been able to eliminate these problems because of the unique qualities of their materials. Also, adding to our customers satisfaction, is the fact that ProCoat is a green technology.”

“It is now more than five years since we made the decision to restore our old acoustical ceiling rather than undertake the expense of removing the old tiles and replacing with new materials. With your help we were able to identify a local contractor to apply your coating to the old ceiling. Now, over five years later, I am pleased to report that we have retained all of our acoustical values and the ceiling still maintains an excellent appearance.”
