Choosing the right wood tiles is a key factor in ensuring your project’s wood walls and wood ceilings look he way you want and, technically, offer the characteristics that you need. These are the most important aspects to look at when choosing a model for wood tiles:
- Acoustics: wood tiles can be acoustic panels if there are perforations on the surface and a thermo-glued sound-absorbent fabric on the inner face to absorb sound. Spigotec and Spigoacustic brand wood acoustic tiles catalogues offer dozens of models with different levels of sound absorption.
- Type of support: Spigogroup wall and ceiling tiles are made with a support or base material that comes in Standard MDF, Fireproof MDF and Water-resistant MDF. The Spigotec brand also offers plywood supports.
- Natural wood finish: the supports can be finished in natural varnished beech, oak, maple or cherry wood, although we also have extensive catalogues of natural wood veneer with different textures and colour ranges (see post “Acoustic panels with natural wood veneer: many more options than you thought” )
- Other finishes: these tiles can also be finished off with lacquered, high density veneer or melamine finishes, imitating other materials or with fancier designs (see post “New catalogue of melamine finish acoustic panels and tiles”)
- Sizes: you can choose different size combinations (300/600 mm x 600/1,200/2,400 mm) depending on models and the installation method.
- Installation Types: The range of Spigotec inner linigs and accessible ceilings can be installed with visible profiles, T15/T24 partially-visible profiles, dovetailed profiles, T24 hidden profiles, T15 fineline profiles and Omega+clip profiles. Spigoacustic acoustic panels are available with T15 hidden profiles, T24 hidden profiles + clip, wood batten + clip, T15/T24 partially-visible profiles, Omega+clip profiles and wood battens.
