Product questions

The acoustic wood panel range comes in panels measuring 240cm x 60cm.

We have designed the panels to join width-ways and long ways seamlessly so any length or width can easily be achieved.

If you want a class A sound absorption, we recommend installing the panels with batons. However, if you're going to have them for decorative purposes while still providing sound absorption, we recommend screwing the panels directly into the wall through the acoustic felt backing using black or grey screws, depending on your choice of backing.

We do not currently offer the panels in custom sizes; however, we have designed them to be easily cut if you need smaller or they can be joined if you need to cover larger areas

The panels will be absolutely fine in these areas as long as they are not in direct contact with water, although we recommend applying a water-resistant finish to the front of the slats to protect them against any moisture or humidity.

The acoustic slat wood wall panel range is designed for indoor use only.

The acoustic panels come with an option of unfinished or oiled finished. Unfinished allows you to finish it any way you choose. We recommend adding a finish, whether it's an oil, wax, lacquer, or varnish, to protect the wood, and while doing so, it also enhances the grain and colours of the wood. Our finished panels come with a protective satin oil applied which will increase the richness and warmth of the wood.

It is straightforward to adjust the panels to fit around any object. You can cut the slats' widthways with a saw, and the felt lengthways with a sharp blade to apply around any item you may have on your surface.

You can mount the panels on all surfaces, including brick, concrete and plasterboard.

The wood used is always from the same source, so they will always look more or less the same. It is natural wood, however, so knots, slight cracks and colour variations can occur.

The panels have been designed to have the edge exposed. When cutting through the slats they are black throughout so an edge will always look like the rest of the panels. Alternatively, we also offer an end trim available in the accessories section.

You certainly can.

The felt acoustic backing is fire-rated. However, the face materials are not. Please get in touch with us for more information.

If installing with batons, you can use mineral wool or other sound insulation material in-between the gaps, increasing the sound absorption properties even further.
