Easy to work with and install, Tectum panels and systems are cost effective and require little maintenance. They are available in natural, white or custom-painted finishes, and are field-paintable up to six times. Tectum products are cementitious wood fiber acoustical panels composed of aspen wood fibers. All of our products carry a Class A/1 interior finish rating for flame and smoke. In addition, all Tectum products are “green” because they are manufactured using only renewable wood and other sustainable raw materials. From Tectum website.

The solution that combines the beauty of natural wood with an excellent level of acoustic absorption, thanks to its perforated composition. From the Prodema website
Inspired by Alvar Aalto’s slat ceilings, the 9Wood grilles combine the design features of popular wood grilles with cost-saving commercial construction criteria. The functionality of modern building maintenance such as accessibility and seismic compliance, MEP penetration and acoustic performance is made available in several attachment methods to commercial T-Bar grid suspension. Designs can be richly varied through a large choice of wood species and finishes, member sizes and spacing. Adding to the design palette are choices in perimeter trims, fixture cutouts and panel-end reveal patterns. From the 9wood website.

Tongue-and-grooved linear wood was traditionally toe-nailed to ceiling rafters. 9Wood has perfected the installation of linear wood in commercial wood ceilings, bringing the functional advantages of modern construction with it. Panelized or individual planks, open reveals or closed reveals, sound reflective or sound absorptive, solid or veneered, narrow or wide: a virtually limitless palette of designs are available to architects. A special example is our award winning “floor-on-a-ceiling” 2600 flush-joint linear style (a “they told us it couldn’t be done” product). From the 9wood website.

Managing sound is a central concern of wood ceiling design. A common solution is to create openings in the otherwise reflective wood surface. Sound absorbing fiberglass is placed as a backing over these openings. The 3000 Acoustic Wood series offers another resolution to this acoustic design question. It employs our patented method of fiberglass capsules inserted into the wood panel. Fine grooves which open into the fiberglass capsules are milled into the panel face. A variety of attachment methods are used to suspend the Acoustic Wood series. Individual Acoustic Planks (3100) are suspended like our linear ceilings, and provide the color variation typical of a linear ceiling. The panelized Acoustic Tile (3200) is suspended from commercial T-Bar using any of the Wood Tile attachment methods: Tegular Edge, Lift & Lock™, Torsion Spring, XL Channel. Acoustic Tiles can be “framed” with a non-grooved border or left “un-framed” with matching edge banding. On-center spacing of the groove can also be modified if required. From the 9wood website.

The 4300 Lift & Lock was designed to solve trouble accessing large panels. Grooves milled into panel edges are an industry standard “lift-and-shift edge” solution. But we found it nearly impossible to manipulate the “lift-and-shift edge” grooves into the T-Bar flange. We also didn’t like the way seismic compliance was resolved. Nor the way the “lift-and-shift edges” sit halfway into the grid, making room perimeter installation a battle. So called “hook clip” solutions use budget-busting suspension systems. Accessibility, seismic compliance, easy large panel installation, standard suspension to keep costs down – these were the criteria facing our R&D team. Their work resulted in the Lift & Lock™ panel suspension solution. Creating a patented clip and lanyard design, they resolved the above design criteria, and even added the extra gain of a “hinged” lanyard. This permits the panel to hang in place during maintenance without dropping the panel. It worked so well we now use it on all panel sizes, even 2x2s. From the 9wood website.

When combined with our 5000 Perforation series, our suite of tile suspension systems give designers a wide range of acoustic solutions. The three classic patterns are Parallel, Staggered and Diamond. Designers often develop their own, unique patterns aided by 9Wood’s design solution team. This team brings advice on species selection and veneer grades, LEED – contributing cores, fire code compliance, access issues and MEP penetrations. These criteria are combined with acoustic data to help solve aesthetic, acoustic and technical challenges.

Arcuated designs pose special challenges for wood ceilings. Problem solving requires a tool kit of construction solutions. With our Wood Waves series 8000 the solutions are numerous. Grilles, linears, acoustic wood, tiles; 9Wood offers designers vaulted or undulating options using cost effective pre-curved suspension grid.

LAMBRI TOPLINE by Eomac is a plank style tongue and groove wood veneered acoustic panel, ideal for both ceilings and walls. TOPLINE is a beautiful, sophisticated interior finish with excellent acoustic properties. TOPLINE Panels are finished with a genuine wood veneer (over 40 in stock veneers to choose from), then grooved on the surface to create a linear slatted look. Inside the grooves, perforations are made to allow for the absorption of sound energy. Panels are delivered to site fully finished and ready to install. TOPLINE types are named for the execution pattern they represent. For example, TOPLINE 6/2 represents 6 mm slat and a 2 mm groove pattern repeated across the face of the panel. The pattern is continued between adjoining panels through a seamless tongue and groove connection. With several different executions to choose from, TOPLINE is sure to meet your design and acoustic requirements -NRC as high 0.95 From the EOMAC website.
LAMBRI LAWAPAN Wood Veneered Acoustic Wall and Ceiling Panels are manufactured to standard or custom sizes, to suit every unique project. Panels are fully finished in factory and arrive to site ready to install. LAWAPAN WALL & CEILING achieve acoustic absorption through standard or custom perforations – either acoustics through round perforation or acoustics through slots. Specialty perforations are also available, including micro-perforations, square perforations, and mosaic patterns. From the Lambri website.
