Cladding with acoustic and decorative wood slats for the new Montepino offices

By Acoustics, Acústica, Architecture, Arquitectura, Construcción, Construction, Decoración, Decoration

Today we will review another new example of cladding with decorative wood slats for offices, both for acoustic conditioning and aesthetic reasons. A few years ago, Montepino, one of the largest owners, promoters and operators of logistics real estate in Spain, carried out a comprehensive renovation of the facilities at its headquarters in Zaragoza. Committed to the well-being of both clients and employees, they did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportunity to install solid wood lath cladding for optimal acoustic conditioning of main work areas. The Spigoline cladding system based on decorative wood slats offered the solutions they needed:   25 m² of Spigoline GRID system wood slat cladding, models 4-30-70-55 and 4-30-35-55 with white tinted finish and standard varnish. Fully assembled panel with 4 parallel solid ayous wood slats, each slat section 30x35 mm, spaced at 55 mm, joined with beech rods 12 mm diameter, panel open area 62,12 % or greater, panel mass per sqm 5,04 kg/m² or lower”   30 m² of Spigoline SOLID system wood slat cladding, model R-8_20_70_55 with PSM R12349 finish. This sound-absorbent, wood slat ceiling, forms grilles of solid Ayous wood laths with a cross-section of 20x50 mm and 70 mm high, placed parallel to each other, with a 55 mm gap between laths, which are nailed to the black-painted top board.     For the entrance area, we also manufactured loose Ayous wood laths with a 30x35 m section, tinted and varnished according to the project requirements.                 If you liked this post about decorative wood slats for offices, you may also be interested in: . - Acoustic panels for exhibition halls, museums and galleries - How wood panels help to achieve VERDE certification - Flexible wood slat cladding: so acoustics does not limit creativity - 3 examples of interior wood cladding for health centres or hospitals

Decorative wood panels for offices: reviewing a coworking office in Paris

By Architecture, Arquitectura, Construcción, Construction, Decoración, Decoration, Proyectos en Madera Spigogroup, Spigogroup wood projects

Today we will review a new success story in the use of decorative wood panels for offices. Current office design faces two major challenges: the practical use of the facilities and the aesthetics it offers to visitors and the people who work there. In terms of visual appearance, office design always looks for warm elements, such as wood, that convey harmony and serenity. That is why the use of decorative wood slatted cladding, such as the ones in this project, is becoming more and more widespread. The following images correspond to a coworking office project in the centre of Paris, for which we were asked to manufacture two different models of wood cladding: Spigoplank 01 decorative wood panels in solid oak, used on the walls of some common areas such as the lift area. The model is very quick and easy to install, with a three-dimensional longitudinal surface in the form of 10-mm-thick wood slats and 10 mm spacing between slats. See technical shee Spigoline Grid 6-30-35-30 wood slat cladding in PSM R12354 stain, used in the ceilings of the main working areas. Fully assembled panel with 6 parallel solid ayous wood slats, each slat section 30x35 mm, spaced at 30 mm, joined with beech rods 12 mm diameter, panel open area 48,00 % or greater, panel mass per sqm 7,03 kg/m² or lower”.

Acoustic conditioning of homes and the hearing impaired

By Acústica, Arquitectura, Construcción, Decoración

The acoustic conditioning of homes is an aspect that becomes particularly relevant when considering the needs of the hearing impaired. According to the EuroTrack 2023 Study on Hearing Loss and Hearing Aid Use in Spain, approximately 4.6 million Spanish people, or 10% of the population, suffer from hearing loss, deafness or other hearing impairments. These people face daily challenges in communicating and enjoying a quiet environment due to hearing sensitivity or hearing loss issues. It is therefore essential that homes are appropriately designed and equipped to provide them with an acoustically comfortable environment. Some of the best-known steps to be taken are the installation of adapted sound and communication systems that help to hear television, radio or group conversations within the home more clearly. It is also advisable to have light-based alarms and signals that provide visual warnings in case of an emergency, thereby offering an additional layer of safety and accessibility. But the main step that offers the best results is the use of materials and decorative components to control reverberation in different rooms, providing a clear and clean sound environment, free of echoes or annoying sound permanence. The use of carpets, curtains or soft furniture contribute to this goal but the ultimate choice is undoubtedly to include sound-absorbent wood acoustic panels on walls or ceilings in the most problematic rooms. An acoustic cladding of decorative wood panels or strips can ensure acoustic comfort and a significant improvement in the quality of life for people with hearing issues, while enhancing the design of a home and adding a touch of elegance and distinction.       If you liked this post about acoustic conditioning of homes, you may also be interested in:   - Installation of solid wood slat cladding using the GRID system - Wood ceilings for wineries: tradition and modernity in the great temples of wine - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Definition of acoustic conditioning and soundproofing, what is the difference?
