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?

The 3 big mistakes to avoid in office renovations

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration

Office renovation is a very important milestone in the history of your business. Offices are the places where all, or at least a large part, of the employees in an organisation carry out their work every day. It is also the place where customers and suppliers are received and where major decisions are made. That is why it is so important to take care of office design and avoid those three big mistakes that can significantly affect the well-being and efficiency of your employees.   Forgetting about acoustics After months of reform and a significant financial investment, the time has come for workers to return to the office. It is terrible to discover at that moment that the acoustics are deplorable and that the workplace, far from improving, has gotten worse. Acoustics must be taken into account from the beginning of the project. Plan the acoustic conditioning of the new office: analyze the dimensions and separations, and take into account the finishes used, as well as the furniture and people who will fill the different rooms each day, and install the acoustic panels that can guarantee the acoustic comfort you need.   Failing to ensure good lighting and warmth Natural light has been shown to increase productivity and job satisfaction, and incorporating warm elements, such as wood, helps create a welcoming and motivating work environment. Bet on the warmth of the wooden coverings on walls and ceilings and on the light effects of the wooden slats.   Failing to value perceived quality Perceived quality goes beyond aesthetics; It is about how employees and visitors experience a work environment and how it translates to the image they will have of the organization. Use noble materials such as solid wood, choose quality furniture, propose an intelligent arrangement of spaces and pay attention to details.       If you liked this post about office renovations, 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?

Acoustic panels for courts and the importance of acoustics in a judicial process

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

Acoustic panels for courts play a discreet but crucial role in the development of a judicial process. The statements of defendants, victims or witnesses in police stations and courts, presentations of evidence, speeches by lawyers, rulings by jurors, statements of sentences by judges, meetings between lawyers and defendants: a trial involves a chain of events in which that good communication is key to the performance of justice and the defense of people's rights. Courtrooms, offices, meeting rooms and other rooms in a court must offer the best possible acoustics to ensure that the words spoken inside are perfectly understood. However, sometimes, glass in the accused or press area, a particularly reflective floor or large windows can cause imbalances in the reverberation time, producing that uncomfortable sensation of echoes or overlapping sounds that make it so difficult to understand a message. speech or conversation. The way to correct the reverberation time will be with correct acoustic conditioning of each room, adjusting the total acoustic absorption of the room using sound-absorbing acoustic panels, such as those manufactured by Spigogroup. These are elegant and discreet wood panels, which, placed as wood cladding on ceilings or walls, achieve the correct and necessary acoustic absorption in each area to achieve maximum acoustic comfort. Review all the models and finishes available on the pages of our brands Spigoacustic, Spigotec and Spigoline.         If you liked this post about acoustic panels for courts, you may also be interested in:   - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - 3 modern wood ceilings you’ll want for your next project - How to enhance your interior design with slotted wood panels

Acoustic panels are usually those perforated panels that are placed on walls and ceilings. In premises that are committed to design and elegance, they are usually made of wood. It may seem silly to talk about the acoustics of love but, on the contrary, there is little more important in love than words, sometimes spoken in a whisper. That is why, on our romantic dates, we prefer restaurants with intimate atmospheres, low intensity lights and light, background music, low enough so we can readily convey that phrase we found so hard to bring out or readily catch those words that we long to hear coming out of the lips our beloved. If you're a restaurant owner, you don't want your dining room to be a din of music and voices constantly trying to rise above one another to make themselves heard by the person in front of them. If you let this happen, you will soon see the number of weekly bookings decline. The solution is to take care of the acoustic comfort of your business by undertaking proper acoustic conditioning using sound-absorbent wood acoustic panels, thereby keeping the levels of acoustic reverberation under control. Spigogroup has different types of acoustic solutions in wood, both for ceilings and walls, which you can review in our Spigoacustic, Spigotec or Spigoline catalogues.
