Sound absorbent tiles or acoustic panels are the main element of any acoustic conditioning project. Its operation is simple: sound absorbent tiles are a type of cladding that is installed on the walls and false ceiling of a room. Its components and surface perforations can absorb part of the sound received, avoiding its rebounding and hence annoying acoustic effects such as reverberation.
Sound absorbent tiles contribute to acoustic conditioning but, to be able to do so, they have to be exposed to the view of users, so it is important that, in addition, they be discreet and contribute, if possible, to improving the aesthetics of a space. This is achieved, for example, with the use of absorbent tiles made of wood, like those of the Spigoacustic and Spigotec brands, which are warm and elegant while offering the necessary degree of acoustic absorption for the acoustic conditioning of a room. In these cases, the installation systems of these are also important. Absorbent tiles have to be very discreet and simple in their execution but very resistant in their use. Let’s have a look at the different possibilities:
Installation systems for Spigoacustic absorbent tiles:
- The concealed form T-15 through an inverted “T” simplifies the installation of hidden edge panels
- The semi-exposed form hides partially the profile leaving a fine line that adds elegance to the solution.
- The concealed form T-24 with fixing iron cramp achieves an aesthetic incredible ceiling
- The system omega profile + cramp consists on the installation of panels throught a “U” profile and iron cramps.
- The system of wooden strip + cramp consists on the installation of panels through wooden strips and cramps
- The system of wooden strip allows the collocation of panels through nails to wooden strip fixed to the Wall.
Installation systems for Spigotec absorbent tiles:
- The exposed or flush mounting consists on the panels rest right above the profile
- The system of the concealed form T-24 is based on an inverted “T” which hides the profiling
- Semi-exposed T15/T24: The system of semi-exposed form allows the panels with inclined edges to conceal partially the profile
- Fineline form T-15: The system of fineline form allows the panels to rest above the fastening profile with spacers
- The male-female joint allows to assembly the panels successively through the fit of them.
- The omega form + fixing iron cramp consists on installation through a “U” profile and its corresponding iron cramps
