Round-hole perforated acoustic panels

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

Round-hole perforated acoustic panels are some of the most commonly used when performing the acoustic conditioning of a room. Acoustic panels are able to absorb sound, so they are perfect when it comes to controlling reverberation in a room. Put simply, this is how they work: acoustic tiles have a number of perforations on their surface that allow sound to pass through to a black 0.25 mm sound-absorbent veil. Depending on the percentage of the panel surface that is perforated, the panel absorbs more or less sound. Finally, we only need to choose the panel that has the sound absorption capacity we need to balance out noise effects, such as reverberation. Spigotec's catalog features twelve models of acoustic panels with round-hole perforations ranging from the LEO 64 model with 1.20% of its surface perforated and sound absorption αw=0.208 (NRC 0.55) to the LEO 16 model with 11.10 % of its surface perforated and sound absorption αw=0.50 (NRC 0.60 | SAA 0.58). All can be used with melamine, natural wood, lacquered or HPL finishes, on standard, fire-retardant or water-repellent MDF supports. Installation is very simple and can be done with exposed profile, fineline T15, semi-exposed T15/T24 or concealed T24 systems for ceilings, and dovetailed or Omega+Grapa profile systems for walls.   SEE MODELS   Piscis Par   Piscis 64 Cruz   Piscis 16   Piscis 32   Piscis 25   Leo 16   Leo Salt   Leo Par   Leo Banda   Leo Banda 16   Leo 64   Leo 32     If you liked this post about round-hole perforated acoustic panels, you may also be interested in:   - Wood cladding for railway stations and airports - Conditions for installing Spigoline wood slats - Acoustic panels in hotels, what do they contribute? - Decorative false ceiling with wood slats: 3 options and installation methods

Oak finish acoustic panels: 4 examples of their use

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Inspiration, News, Spigogroup wood projects, Uncategorized No Comments

Oak finish acoustic panels combine technology and aesthetic appeal. The reason for using acoustic panels in a project is primarily technical and has to do with acoustics. Acoustic panels have a special sound absorption capability and are used to correct possible disturbances in a room’s acoustics. They are most commonly used in acoustic conditioning work, where the aim is to control the reverberation of a room. However, these panels are also an interior cladding that is visible to the user, so it is desirable for them to go unnoticed or even offer a positive contribution to the room’s aspect. Opting for acoustic panels with an oak finish, whether natural or varnished, increases the warmth and naturalness of the room, whilst dressing the wholel space and giving it character. Here are four projects that employed Spigogroup acoustic panels.   Bodegas Barón de Ley In this 2019 project, Spigoacustic 28-32-32 oak-finish acoustic tiles were chosen       Centro Comercial Equinocio Spigotec's Sagitario sound-absorbent wood panels were chosen for the corridors of this shopping centre in Madrid.       Auditorio de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria In this auditorium, panels of Spigotec's Liso and Leo 16 models were installed, with a varnished oak veneer finish.       Fundación Laboral de la Construcción de La Rioja This spectacular project highlights the installation of Spigoacustic 28-16-16 varnished oak acoustic panels in curved format joining walls and ceiling in a single surface.     If you liked this post about oak finish acoustic panels, you may also be interested in:   - Decorative false ceiling with wood slats: 3 options and installation methods - 5 places in your office where to show your love of wood - Wood and energy efficiency, why do they go so well together? - Can restaurant wood cladding change the future of my restaurant?

Wood cladding for railway stations and airports

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Inspiration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments

Wood cladding for railway stations and airports is a material chosen primarily based on aesthetic criteria. Sometimes, when finishing construction and refurbishment projects in passenger transport facilities such as railway stations, underground stations, bus stations, airports or ferry ports, materials with a technical function (insulation, etc.) were used. However, it is becoming increasingly common to choose materials like wood interior cladding that, in addition to fulfilling their practical function, provide an added aesthetic appeal. Nowadays, every place aspires to show its best face and to be, if possible, a tourist destination. This means prestige and money. For this reason, the cities of the 21st century have been taking more and more care of the way their ports, airports and railway stations look. After all, these buildings are often the gateway to a city or country and are the first impression a visitor gets of their destination. A recent example is the railway station in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, designed by the well-known Moroccan architect Fikri Benabdallah. The interior of the atrium was lined with 3,500 m² of solid wood cladding, in wooden slat format, the Spigoline Grid 4-30-70-55, made with elegant, solid obeche wood, in a PSM R12509 finish. A very versatile Spigoline solution with an installation system capable of adapting to curved surfaces.     Another case is that of the Spigotec ceiling cladding used in the hall of the Noáin-Pamplona airport, which, in addition to fulfilling an aesthetic function, provide acoustic improvements.

4 Decorating trends for 2022

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Inspiration, News No Comments

The decorating trends for 2022 accommodate our post pandemic situation, in which we continue discovering domestic spaces and the value of interiors as a source of well-being, in the absence of external stimuli. These are the four general trends that experts believe will mark the main lines in decorating and interior design projects in the coming months.   Warm, serene minimalism: the search for relaxed, welcoming yet simple atmospheres, which convey the sensation of order and certainty that we do not find when watching the news. Wood, as a warm, noble and sincere material, perfect for a friendly, functional minimalism. Wood interior cladding for walls and ceilings and wood decorative panels for furniture and other items are featured.       Acoustic comfort: we have discovered the value of the interiors of our homes and workplaces, and we seek to maximise the well-being they produce. In this respect, acoustics and the need to have spaces of acoustic comfort, without echoes, that allow the maximum enjoyment of music and conversations, become important.             Inspiration in nature: the use of natural materials is revalued. Raw materials such as wood, ceramics and glass dominate the interior design projects and propositions.           Sustainable decoration: we can no longer avoid the ecological importance of the materials we use. For example, it is better to use PEFC or FSC certified wood, which guarantees that it comes from sustainably managed forests.         If you liked this post about decorating trends for 2022, you may also be interested in:   - Acoustic panels in hotels, what do they contribute? - Decorating an office with wood: choosing shades and colours - 5 places in your office where to show your love of wood - Wood and energy efficiency, why do they go so well together?
