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

Acoustics and Ergonomics in the Office

By Acoustics, Decoration

Acoustics and ergonomics in the office are fundamental elements for workers' well-being and productivity. In a work environment, such as an office, where concentration and comfort are crucial, the design of the space plays a key role in the performance and satisfaction of employees. Ergonomics refers to the design of workspaces and the objects within them to adapt to the physical and cognitive needs of users. However, good ergonomics in the office not only translates into comfortable and adjustable chairs that promote proper posture, desks at the correct height to avoid muscle strain, and technological devices that facilitate work without causing fatigue, but it must also address the various elements that define the physical work environment: lighting, acoustics, temperature, etc. Acoustics, in particular, have a very significant impact on workers' ability to concentrate and their stress levels. A noisy environment with poor acoustics that does not control reverberation and exposes workers to annoying echoes or sound effects can hinder communication, create constant distractions, and increase anxiety levels. Conversely, a well-designed acoustic environment, with sound-absorbing materials and appropriately arranged furniture, can create a calm atmosphere conducive to concentration. Therefore, it is recommended to use wood acoustic panels in the decoration of office walls and ceilings. These sound-absorbing solutions ensure good acoustics, supporting the ergonomic design of a workplace while offering the quality, distinction, and noble elegance of wood.         If you liked this post about acoustics and ergonomics in the office, you may also be interested in:   - 21 Articles on acoustic conditioning and insulation with wood - Ecological panels with SPIGOLINE PET slats: Solid slats or MDF slats? - Restaurant décor: the 3 mistakes you can’t make in 2024 - The importance of acoustics in coliving or cohousing
