Spigoline Linear System decorative wood slats

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration

Spigoline is the Spigogroup brand of solid wood slat cladding or decorative wood slats. It features four different product systems: the GRID system, the SOLID system, the LINEAR system and the PET system. Today we will to get to know the Linear system a little better. Spigoline’s decorative wood laths system, called Linear System, consists of rectangular ayous wood slats placed in parallel and joined together at one end by means of a black painted ayous wood crossbeam, leaving the entire width of the slat free. The installation of the wood slats is similar both on ceilings and on walls: They are either mounted with T-15 profiles or screwed onto wood battens which are always perpendicular to the slats. The Linear System allows you to install wood slats both vertically and horizontally. This is precisely the first piece of information provided by the designation of each of the models, which begins with the letter H when they are placed horizontally (4 models) and V if they are placed vertically (18 models). In all designations, the slat width in millimetres and the slat spacing in millimetres (160) are given below. Thus, the H70-30 model has horizontal slats, with a width of 70 mm and a slat spacing of 30 mm. They are available in natural obeche wood, obeche wood with wood colour stain or obeche wood with RAL/NRC lacquer and can be surface treated with standard varnish or B-s1, d0 flame retardant varnish, or autoclave treated B-s1, d0 flame retardant treatment.     If you liked this post about decorative wood slats, 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?

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?

What are sustainable wood acoustic panels?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration

Sustainable wood acoustic panels are those that are manufactured with materials and processes that minimize their environmental impact and promote the conservation of natural resources throughout their life cycle.   Renewable materials They are manufactured using wood from sustainable sources, such as responsibly managed forests and certified by recognized organizations such as the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). These same seals, applied to a product, such as the Spigoacustic and Spigotec brand wood acoustic panels, guarantee that it was manufactured from sustainably-sourced wood and that, in addition, a PEFC or FSC Chain of Custody System was maintained through to the end product.   It contributes to the reduction of a project’s carbon footprinT Wood has a negative carbon footprint, and there is no other building material that allows us to reduce the carbon footprint of a building more significantly. Wood outperforms other materials in CO2 emissions, effect on water quality and overall environmental impact when measured over the full life cycle of the material.   Indoor air quality Spigogroup has the A+ label which certifies that its wood cladding is free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can pollute indoor air.   Recyclability Wood is an ecological material, easily recyclable and with a low environmental impact over the entire life cycle of the building. In the case of Spigoline PET panels, an eco-friendly insulating panel with high thermal and acoustic performance is also used, made with 80% recycled polyester fibers, 100% recyclable and with a low carbon footprint.             If you liked this post about sustainable wood acoustic panels, 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?

What is hotel acoustic conditioning? How does it work?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration

If you are the owner or director of a hotel establishment you already know: hotel acoustic conditioning is crucial to guarantee the comfort of your guests. Many hotels, hostels, inns, guest houses and similar types of accommodation suffer from high levels of reverberation and background noise. The most common reason is that hotel common areas (reception, lounges, corridors, etc.) usually have highly reflective materials, such as mirrors, ceramics or glass, which cloud the acoustics of the room. The solution lies in the acoustic conditioning of the hotel, which involves the study and installation of absorbent materials to ensure control of reverberation, thus guaranteeing the desired acoustic comfort. These materials should be seamlessly integrated into the design of the various hotel spaces without drawing attention to themselves. Spigogroup offers the widest range of wooden acoustic panels for hotel acoustic conditioning. These wood acoustic panels can be easily and conveniently installed on the ceilings and/or walls of each room, as needed to enhance the acoustics of each space. Additionally, wood is a warm and elegant material that discreetly adds a degree of distinction to the overall design of a hotel. Alternatively, if the hotel design requires it, these panels can also be used with finishes in any desired tone, texture, or color.         If you liked this post about hotel acoustic conditioning, you may also be interested in:     - Flexible wood slat cladding: so acoustics does not limit creativity - Spigogroup launches new wood slat cladding with PET felt insulation - The benefits of using wood panels in Passivhaus-certified projects - 5 reasons to use wood if you want to earn BREEAM certification
