Acoustic tiles made of wood slats have earned a key position in the Spigogroup acoustic solutions catalogue. When you undertake a project to improve the comprehensive acoustics of a space you need a range of options that offer different combinations of acoustic efficiency and aesthetic value. Acoustic tiles made of wood slats are acoustic solutions that can offer the coveted middle term.
The Spigoline system of tiles made of wood slats is called GRID. It is made up of slats of solid wood (square of rectangular sections) positioned parallel to each other, joined together by wooden rods (12 mm diameter). The visual result is extraordinary. The effect of the wood slats placed along perfectly parallel lines and the warmth of the wood offer a very elegant, modern look.
With respect to acoustics, Spigoline GRID is an open model. To add acoustic absorption, it is sufficient to include a material on the back of the panel that absorbs the sound coming across the tile through the slats. This acoustic absorption is, however, difficult to evaluate. It is perfect for improving acoustic comfort in offices, meeting rooms, lobbies or restaurants, but it is not the most recommended solution for a highly-controlled acoustic intervention such as required by theatres or auditoriums.
In these cases you would resort to Spigoacustic or Spigotec acoustic panels, or to the Spigoline Acoustic system of acoustic tiles made of wood slats. Acoustic system is made up of superior acoustic panel with ovoid or circular holes and solid wood slats (squared or rectangular section) positioned parallel to each other and perpendicular to this support. In this case, it is possible to guarantee precise, controlled levels of absorption that require more technical acoustic conditioning.
