WHAT ARE WOOD CEILING TILES
Hunter Douglas wood ceiling tiles are made of an MDF core covered with a wooden veneer. They fix directly onto a substructure with the use of special metal clips, which can create a closed or open joint. The natural growth patterns of each tree can be clearly seen in the veneer, including natural characteristics such as knots and outgrowth. Once the veneer is chosen, the panels will be produced according to the lay out plan to ensure a perfect fit.
WOOD CEILING TILE VARIATIONS
Hunter Douglas offers four different demountable wood ceiling tile types - Classic, Modern, Prestige and System. They all have their own look, jointing system and advantages. Huge design variation is available between these systems but this can also be achieved through differing veneers, colours and panel finishes. There is a wide scope of perforation patterns, which can be applied to all veneered panels.
ACOUSTICS IN WOOD CEILING PANELS
Depending on the type of panel perforation, a specific acoustical performance is achieved. Bespoke perforations are available as well as our standard varieties. We have recently developed a new perforation pattern that offers up to Alpha W 0.95 by creating 0.5mm diameter holes invisible to the naked eye.
WHY IS ACOUSTIC SO IMPORTANT?
The acoustic comfort in an office space, school or public building contributes to our well being as poor acoustic performance can affect health, communication, safety, productivity and learning. Hunter Douglas Architectural high performance acoustic ceiling products are the best solution to deliver outstanding acoustic performance, comfort and an aesthetically pleasing environment.
Our veneered systems exceed 40 veneers to create the ideal ambiance and feel. These panels are then provided with a transparent lacquer but if a special look is required, special varnishes, staining or paint finishes are also possible. Upon request it is also possible to slip-match or miss-match sheets. Depending on how the veneers are matched, a significant design is created.
WOOD CEILING TILES QUALITY
Our focus on quality ensures the highest standard of production processes, material, machinery and finished product. The superior durability of Hunter Douglas products translates into lower costs during the life cycle of the product. Due to a special treatment of the wooden panels, some wood species are perfectly suitable for humid areas, such as swimming pools.
