Acoustical comfort in an office space, school or public building contributes to our well-being as good acoustic comfort can positively affect health, communication, safety, productivity and learning.
Playing with the panel width and gap will, can provide the necessary acoustic performance for different atmospheres. Optionally, the panels can also be perforated.
Recently, Hunter Douglas developed a new perforation pattern which has extremely good acoustics. This mini micro perforation pattern consists of 0.5mm diameter holes, which from a distance is not visible to the naked eye. This allows the designer to use a high acoustic panel, on a seemingly non-perforated panel.
Reaction to fire
By impregnating wood, a reaction to fire classification (EN13501-1) of B-s1,d0 can be achieved. In some cases higher classifications can also be achieved.
High humidity solutions
Due to a special treatment to the wooden panels, some wood species are perfectly suitable for humid areas, such as swimming pools.
