Ceilings made with wood slats have an aesthetic and decorative value unmatched by any other building material.

For many years now, wood slats have been used for all kinds of wood projects in architecture, ranging from the most popular to the most personal projects of some of the most renowned world architects. (see: Peter Zumthor and the use of wood slats in architecture)

That is the purpose behind the Spigogroup brand, Spigoline, which brings together our offer in wood slats for decoration and construction. Today we want to talk about one of the latest works of Spigoline. It is the wood slatsused in the wood ceilings of the Nuestra Señora del Pino student residence, belonging to the Congregation of Dominican Missionaries of the Holy Family in Madrid.

The project was carried out this year (2015) and, in this case, Spigoline Grid System wood slats (model 5-15-70-55) were supplied for ceilings, and installed on a primary structure consisting of T-15 rods. Locking clips were used to join the grid to the rods.

This model of wood slats features 5 15 mm wide wood slats and a separation of 55 mm between slats. The grid is 70 mm high, 350 mm wide and 1,500 to 3,000 mm long.

For this project solid obeche wood slats were supplied with a white lacquer finish and B-s2, d0 fire proofing.

The project was complemented with additional 5-15-70-55 wood slats on some special walls.
