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 are wooden ceiling tiles? What options exist?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

We call wooden ceiling tiles those interior coverings made of wood and that allow, among others, the beautification of ceilings, the concealment of wiring or channeling and the control of the acoustics of a room.   Spigoacustic wood acoustic panels Spigoacustic is the system made up of linear sound-absorbent panels or acoustic panels designed to offer an optimum acoustic performance. It offers almost 30 models with different degrees of acoustic absorption. In their face side they are made of an MDF support with a sound-absorbing veil thermo-adhered to its hidden side. At sight, they present combinations of channels with circular perforations and finishes in varnished natural wood, high-density veneers or lacquered. See Spigoacustic         Spigotec wood false ceilings Spigotec is the brand of wooden ceiling tiles designed for the installation of false wood ceilings. They serve to keep conduits, pipes and cables hidden, and are used in acoustic conditioning projects. You can choose from more than 40 different models. See Spigotec         Spigoline wood slat cladding Spigoline offers solid wood slat cladding for ceilings or walls, an option that is increasingly in demand due to its high aesthetic impact on any project. In this case, rather than plates, we are talking about grills of parallel wooden slats joined together. Its catalog includes 70 models, some with acoustic absorption capacity. See Spigoline         Spigoplank decorative wood panels Spigoplank offers solid wood panels for ceilings and walls, with volumetric shapes and highly decorative three-dimensional surfaces and with reflective and sound-diffusing capabilities.

Performance of flame retardant wood panel cladding when exposed to fire

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

The most serious problem that has always accompanied the use of wood walls, wood panelling and wood ceilings is the risk of fire. For this reason, the Spigotec and Spigoacustic catalogs have different options for flame retardant wood panel cladding. Wood ceilings, false ceilings and wood cladding Spigoacustic and Spigotec, can be manufactured with fire-retardant properties to improve their fire performance, with an B-s1,d0 classification and compliance with the applicable UNE-EN 1350-1 standards, as required by each architectural project. The flame retardant acoustic panels made of wood manufactured by Spigogroup under the Spigotec and Spigoacustic brands, have different reaction values and fire performance. According to EUROCLASES classification, and depending on the substrate used, Spigotec and Spigoacustic flame retardant acoustic panels made of wood by have the following classifications:   Fire performance D-s2, d0, for those made on standard MDF or water-repellent MDF, with medium contribution to fire, medium smoke production and no flaming droplets, particles or debris.   Reaction to fire B-s1, d0, in those manufactured with fire retardant MDF, with a very limited contribution to fire in low quantity/velocity, with smoke production that would not be a health concern, and does not generate flaming droplets, particles or debris. Spigogroup flame retardant wood panel cladding can be used on both ceilings and walls, and their placement using exposed, semi-seen or hidden profile systems is very simple.           If you liked this post about flame retardant wood panel cladding, 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 are wood removable ceilings?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

Wood removable ceilings are made of wood panels laid out on a fully standardised grid system, for quick and easy installation from the sides of a room.   Good acoustics One of the main advantages they offer is their ability to guarantee good acoustics in a room. The panels in wood removable ceilings basically consist of a main base plate or support on which a thin layer of finish is applied and one can choose among dozens of options. Depending on the acoustic conditioning, work carried out in a room and the degree of sound absorption required for panels, these will have different types of perforations, combined with a heat bonded, sound-absorbent veil to allow you to achieve a Optimum Reverberation Time for the room.   Hide facilities In addition, removable ceilings offer a space between the false ceiling and the main ceiling. This space "left" by removable ceilings serves to house hidden wires and pipes needed for devices in the building's various installations: electricity, heating, gas, air, sound or safety.   Energy efficiency Removable ceilings which create a false ceiling reduce the amount of cubic metres of air that needs to be heated in a room, which means a reduction in the amount energy required to maintain a suitable temperature.   Difference between removable ceilings and accessible ceilings In practice the only drawback of removable false ceilings compared to accessible ceilings is that the latter allow quick, direct access to any part of the wood ceiling, while removable ceilings require removing part of the false ceiling to reach the exact place where we wish to work.           If you liked this post about wood removable ceilings, you may also be interested in:   - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - 3 modern wood ceilings you’ll want for your next project - Acoustic panels for press rooms: press room at the Ministry of Justice in Madrid - Acoustic conditioning of classrooms: calculation of reverberation time and recommendations
