Q: Where can I get your beautiful walls?

A: Erwin Hauer Studios is the exclusive source for authentic Erwin Hauer designs. We deal directly with architects and designers. We are available to customize many aspects of our designs to fit your project.

Q: What is the lead time?

A: It depends on the design and the quantity. Generally we satisfy small orders in four to eight weeks, but larger orders or heavily customized orders may take three to six months.

Q: What materials are the designs made with?

A: Our designs are made with the following materials:
    milled wood
    milled composite (MDF)
    milled stone (limestone, etc)
    cast gypsum
    cast concrete
    glass fiber reinforced gypsum (GFRG)
New designs may be available in cast resin, aluminum and stainless. Please check the "continua" link.

Q: Does Erwin Hauer Studios install the walls?

A: No. Due to insurance and local labor restrictions, it is not feasible for us to maintain skilled emplyees for installation.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: The price per square foot ranges from $100 to $300 and is dependent on the design and material choice. Prices do not include delivery or installation. Most milled mdf designs are supplied fully finished to your paint specifications. These desings are ready to install with minor assembly.  Stone designs require engineered support and skilled stone installers.  Cast designs require on-site assembly with epoxy or mortar/rebar, chasing and painting/sealing. Your local labor costs will vary.

Q: I saw a very similar design from a different source.  Do you license your designs or are these knockoffs?

A: We do not license our designs at the present time.  If you are enticed to purchase a similar/knockoff design from a different source, please don't.  In addition to copyright, trademark and patent protections we may have on our intellectual property, we categorically refuse to work with clients (designers, architects, developers, construction managers, etc) who install knockoffs of our designs.

Q: A reputable art retailer is offering "vintage" Erwin Hauer screen elements.  Are these authentic?

A: The short answer is no.  To date, all of the so called vintage Erwin Hauer elements we have been informed of happen to be modern knockoffs.  If you are concerned about the authenticity of any design element attributed to Erwin Hauer, please send us an image and we will gladly evaluate its authenticity.
