For a good cleaning of sports furniture and changing rooms, does it matter what material they are made of?

By Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments
The images of disinfection and cleaning of sports furniture, changing rooms, toilets and other areas in schools, health facilities and other community service buildings are shown in the news and special shows every day. The COVID-19 pandemic that we are unfortunately suffering has brought to the forefront the previously anonymous and undervalued work of hygienic maintenance of public facilities (phenolic lockers, phenolic cabins, etc.). We do not know much, beyond what the authorities are explaining these days, about the behaviour of a virus on a given surface. But we have learned, in all these years manufacturing sports furniture, that a good selection of the material with which the sports facility furniture is manufactured is key to guarantee good maintenance and proper cleaning in the future. That is why Spigocompac, the division of Spigogroup devoted to the manufacture of dressing room benches, phenolic booths for schools, lockers for changing rooms, sports furniture for gyms, school sports furniture, etc., we've always opted for phenolic panels or boards. Phenolic panels are the best option for manufacturing sports furniture. It is a fireproof material that is highly resistant to humidity. Perfect for changing rooms, showers and toilet cubicles in any building. It is also very durable and impact- and scratch-resistant. But above all, it has a non-porous, anti-bacterial and non-corrosive surface that repels dirt. This greatly facilitates the cleaning of sports and sanitary furniture in any facility. . . .       . .         .

Why choose sound-absorbent wood ceilings for cinemas?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments
Sound-absorbent ceilings for cinemas are always there, even if we don't notice them. Together with incredible sound equipment they provide the wonderful experience of a good evening at the cinema. We enter the room of our film, the lights are halfway down and everyone speaks softly, almost whispering, as if afraid to interrupt. We can already discover the effects of wood acoustic panels located above our heads and in the aisles. The sounds we make and our words are muted, but very clear. It's funny, because we understand what our companion tells us much better than we expected. This is the effect of the acoustic ceilings that are installed in cinemas, audiovisual rooms, theatres and auditoriums. It is the consequence of proper, measured sound absorption, which corrects reverberation and ensures good acoustics. Both modern and classic designs always aim to make the cinema user feel at home. That is why cinema designs always opt for sound-absorbing wood ceilings which are very elegant and cosy. You can opt for a sure bet and choose natural wood or try more special finishes with daring colours, or wood panels that imitate other materials. See post Textured decorative panels to improve aesthetics and acoustics in spaces, New catalogue of melamine finish acoustic panels and tiles, or Acoustic panels with natural wood veneer: many more options than you thought. Technically, these wood acoustic ceilings have flame retardant treatments required by the safety regulations applicable to this type of room. In addition, they are tough and resistant, and easy to maintain and clean.     If you liked this post about sound-absorbent ceilings for cinemas, you may also be interested in: - Acoustic panels for auditoriums: the Disney Film Room at the Hospital 12 de Octubre in Madrid - When to use hanging acoustic islands?

The wood slat ceilings for offices in the Alava Medical Association

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments
Wood slat ceilings for offices can completely change the final look of any project. Many office designs today rely on glass walls. The space gains in luminosity and, moreover, everyone sees everyone. It is a symbol of the organisation's transparency. And, in addition, it has been shown that being able to maintain visual contact helps to build good work teams. But the aesthetic result is sometimes cold and solutions are sought to reinforce that atmosphere of hospitality and protection that we all want in our workplaces. In 2019 the Alava Medical Association (ICOMA) celebrated its 120th anniversary with the opening of new offices in Vitoria-Gasteiz, built by the Entresitio studio. In the design of this project they soon found an answer to these needs for warmth and comfort: the use of wood in floors and ceilings. For the wood ceilings they used high quality materials by Spigogroup. Among all the available options they chose wood slat ceilings for offices with Spigoline materials. Spigogroup supplied 500 m² of Spigoline solid wood slat panels (model 8-15-70-30, 3000 x 360 cms. The finishes were in solid oak-stained obeche wood and a special ceiling mounting system allowed for the integration of ceiling downlights. The final visual effect is excellent. There is a solid feeling of quality, order, symmetry and spaciousness, and a warm, modern and comfortable atmosphere.               If you liked this post about wood slat ceilings for offices, you may also be interested in:   - New trends in office design: Open Space, better acoustics and more wood - Five good examples of decorative wood strips and slats on office ceilings - Wood slat panels for offices: the reception hall at Envaplaster - The acoustic performance of Spigoline tiles made of wood slats   .
