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

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?
