You are the stage in your project where you have to look at acoustic conditioning and it is time to choose acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood. How do you do it?
When it comes to carrying out the acoustic conditioning of premises, the first task to be undertaken is to identify the acoustic problem that needs to be solved. When the problem is reverberation, you can use the help of the TRO online simulator on the website of Spigogroup, which manufactures acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood. The simulator will help you learn about the absorption capacity required of the acoustic panels to be chosen.
Once you know these details and, if necessary, you have confirmed them with the acoustics consultant, you can choose the acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood according to the following criteria:
– Absorption capacity of the acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood
– Finishes: acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood come in natural or melamine finishes, depending on your aesthetic requirements
– Dimensions: What is the standard size of acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood? Do they fit in your project? Do you require special modulations and trims to adapt them to the project? Is your supplier able to offer them full guarantees?
– Ceiling mounting: The installation process will depend on each project. Installations can be done with hidden, visible or partially-visible profiles
– Assembling wood walls or wood panelling: There are also different options for assembling wood walls or wood panelling. You can mount acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood either horizontally or vertically and this obviously also affects the type of support structure used for installation.
– Spare parts: it is important to assess the supplier of acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood. Is it a manufacturer? Will there be spare parts in the future or will it be able to manufacture them if necessary?
– Quality and certification: It is of vital importance that, when purchasing acoustic ceilings, the manufacturer be required to produce certificates of quality, technical specifications, acoustic certification, fireproof certification, etc… making sure that material actually acquired comes from an approved manufacturer with all relevant documentation and required certification.
