Spigoacustic sound-absorbing panels decorate walls and ceilings of all types of premises: auditoriums, hotel halls, exhibition halls, university classrooms, hospital waiting rooms, dining rooms, board and meeting rooms, professional offices, etc. They are a sound-absorbing material that architects and decorators normally use for acoustic conditioning. We talk about those decorative acoustic panels, made of wood, easily recognisable for their grooved surface and the quality transmitted by the various finishes available.
There are about 30 models of Spigoacustic absorbent tiles that offer different levels of acoustic absorption. Depending on the amount of sound we need to neutralise to correct problems such as acoustic reverberation, we will choose one model or another. Therefore, in the technical descriptions of construction or renovation projects the installation of specific models of Spigoacustic acoustic panels is requested. The technical nomenclature of each model includes three numbers, which correspond to three measurements in millimetres. The first is the width of the groove on the visible side. The second is the distance between perforations on the hidden side of the panel. And the third is the distance between grooves on the visible side.
According to these indications we can distinguish between models with groove widths of 2, 2.8 and 4 mm, with distances between holse of 16 or 32 mm (or without holes), and with distances between grooves of 8, 16, 32 or 64 mm.
