Panel of wood slats and vertical slats in Hotel Cup Negret

By Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments
Wood slats have become a first-class decorative technique. We have spent many years manufacturing and distributing Spigoline brand vertical slats and horizontal slats made from solid wood, and we can vouch that the warmth and elegance provided by wood have no rival when it comes to getting the best aesthetic results. Wood slats have been used to beautify, particularly in areas of public use in business premises, schools and also, as in the case that we bring today, bars and hotels. Late last year and early this year we participated in the decoration of different rooms of a four star hotel in Altea (Alicante), the Hotel Cap Negret. They commissioned us to supply a set of wood slats with a GRID system, it is made up of slats of solid Wood (square or rectangular sections) positioned parallel to each other, joined together by wooden rods (13 mm diameter). But on this occasion we had to manufacture a special model, outside standard sizes: the Spigoline 3-30100-90 wood slats model , offering 3 slats with a 30 x 100 mm section and a separation between slats of 90 mm. The slats panel in this model had a grid width of of 360 m and a length of 1,500 and 3,000 mm. The slats were laid on the grid using black rods and were finished in stained solid obeche wood with fire Bs2 d0 retardant varnish. The approximately 80 m² that we were asked to supply were used in ceilings and the rear wall of the hotel bar.   . .

The day we worked with Zaha Hadid: the Viña Tondonia wineshop

By Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Grand Master, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments
Zaha Hadid On 31 March, we were startled by the death of the extraordinary Anglo-Iraqi architect, Zaha Hadid. Hadid's work will certainly go down in the annals of architecture and her mark will distinguish forever those places where she left her legacy. In Spain, Zaha Hadid had 3 projects: the Saragossa bridge pavilion; the annexe to Bodegas Viña Tondonia in Haro (La Rioja); and the Euskotren station in Durango (Biscay). Spigogroup had the honour of participating in the construction of one of them: the wineshop and tasting rooms at Viña Tondonia built to commemorate its 125th anniversary. We like the special wood projects and even more so, when it means participating in a project by Zaha Hadid. It was the year 2006, when Hadid had already become the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize. So we already knew the special moment that we were living. We participated in the the building’s ceilings, manufacturing approximately 200 m² of Spigotec accessible ceilings, model Leo 32, with oak veneer finish, in 600 x 600 mm plates installed using the fineline T-15 mounting system. We were commissioned to supply many other woodwork elements manufactured by our Spigodoor (technical doors) and Spigotec (cladding) divisions, as well as other complementary elements required in this project, including shelves, furniture, etc. Spigogroup has taken part in dozens of special wood projects but some we particularly remember because of their significance. This is one of them.   If you liked this post, you may also be interested in: - Unique wood projects: European Quality Leather Centre in Igualada - 22 + 1 posts about activities and wood projects for decoration and architecture - Inspiring: 2 projects with spectacular wood interiors - Most Outstanding International Wood Projects in 2015

5 questions you should ask yourself before choosing acoustic doors

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, News No Comments
When you tackle soundproofing work you have to face the problem of sound transmission between adjoining rooms, and this is when when the need arises to install acoustic doors in order to prepare the room acoustically. Because, What is the purpose of equipping a room with acoustic ceilings, and using acoustic panels and sound-absorbent wood panelling on walls to soundproofing a room if the sound ends up sneaking from one enclosure to the next? But before you choose your acoustic doors you should ask yourself some questions: 1.- What are the room’s soundproofing needs? This information is essential in deciding on the level of soundproofing you want in the acoustic doors. Spigodoor, the Spigogroup division which manufactures technical doors, offers acoustic doors with 32 dB , 34 dB, 38 dB y 42 dB soundproofing. 2.- Left-hand or right-hand acoustic doors? In view of the layout of spaces in both rooms, you need to decide whether the acoustic doors should open to the left or to the right. 3.- How wide do you want your acoustic doors? The Spigodoor acoustic doors catalogue offers (standard) doors which are 2.030 mm high, with widths starting at 425 mm, 525 mm, 625 mm, 725 mm, 825 mm o 925 mm per leaf. You can also have custom sizes for your particular project. 4.- Do you need windows on the acoustic doors? Acoustic doors are often used in schools, hospitals, universities, public buildings, etc. and sometimes require glass windows allowing you to inspect what is happening inside a room without opening the door. Is this your case? In this sense, Spigodoor offers the market a solution certified for 32 dB soundproofing encompassing both door and window. This does away with the need to have to separate certifications 5.- Which finish do you like most? At Spigodoor you can choose various finishes: MDB for painting, laminated HPL and natural varnished or lacquered plywood.     If you liked this post, you may also be interested in: - Acoustic / soundproof doors for schools, hospitals, universities, public buildings, etc... - Acoustic doors or soundproof doors, what are they?
