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”.

Acoustics in hotel rooms: How can it be improved?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration

The acoustics in hotel rooms play a crucial role in the overall guest experience. Good acoustics can make the difference between a pleasant stay and a bad experience that leads to criticism, bad reviews and non-return. It is therefore essential that hotels pay attention to this aspect and constantly look for ways to improve it. One of the first steps that can be taken to improve acoustics in hotel rooms is the choice of suitable materials. Sound-absorbent materials, such as wood acoustic panels, help to reduce reverberation and improve the acoustic comfort of the room. Others, such as insulating materials, reduce noise transmission between rooms and common areas, and floating floors and high-density carpets minimise impact noise and footsteps. Even the arrangement of furniture and decorative elements play an important role in the acoustics of a room, as they can help absorb sound and reduce reverberation. Another key is the correct maintenance of lighting, electronic devices and air conditioning installations. The hum of lamps, the hum of the refrigerator and the noise of the air conditioning can take us away from the calm and quiet environment we desire. Finally, it is essential to raise awareness and train hotel staff on the importance of maintaining a calm and respectful environment. Instructing them on how to manage noise during cleaning tasks, using equipment, and interacting with guests can significantly contribute to creating a quieter, more pleasant environment for everyone.           If you liked this post about the acoustics in hotel rooms, you may also be interested in:   - Acoustic conditioning of homes and the hearing impaired - Performance of flame retardant wood panel cladding when exposed to fire - What are wood removable ceilings? - What are accessible wood ceilings?

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?
