ARO Shingle 1 is a wall system composed of individual courses that create a continuous, shingled effect when patterned across a larger surface. ARO Shingle 1 has two distinct tile profiles and the tile rows are offset to create multiple pattern readings. The tiles overlap each other vertically and horizontally and an acoustic substrate backs each tile. The courses attach to vertical strapping with FilzFelt’s Interlock Mounting System and choose from a wide range of colors to create endless patterning with the individual shingles.
Maintenance Vacuum occasionally to remove general air-borne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt. Refer to 100% Wool Design Felt Maintenance + Cleaning for detailed care instructions.

Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
