The kind of wood panel used in an architectural or decorative project can be decisive in many aspects. Some may be obvious to most. Others maybe not so much. If you have already decided, by choice or imposition, that the project in which you work will include some kind of wood panel, let’s remember three aspects of your project that may be affected.
- Aesthetics: Nobody will be surprised if we insist in that the type of wood panel you choose can be determinant in the final look of the project. The thickness and dimensions of the panel you choose are important, and, of course, the colour or wood shade are also crucial. In addition, in the catalogues of wood panels most used in architecture and construction such as Spigoacustic or Spigotec, finishes include lacquers, melamines or high-density veneers that offer other colours on demand.
- Acoustics: By itself the wood is already a material with sound-absorbing properties but if you need to undertake some acoustic conditioning, you can choose to install wood acoustic panels. This type of acoustic panel has perforations on its surface that allows the passage of sound waves to an absorbent veil. Depending on the size and shape of the perforations an acoustic panel will offer greater or lesser acoustic absorption and will be more or less indicated for the acoustic correction that we wish to perform.
- Sustainability and environment: Wood is an easily recyclable material but it is not the same to choose one type of wood or another. Wood panels like those made by Spigogroup have PEFC or FSC certifications to guarantee their provenance from sustainably managed forests and the maintenance of the PEFC or FSC Chain of Custody System up to the final product.
