SPIGOACUSTIC ACOUSTIC PANELS
Designed to offer an optimum acoustic performance.
Spigoacustic is the system made up of linear sound-absorbent panels or acoustic panels designed to offer an optimum acoustic performance. Depending on the sound absorption demands for each venue, the Spigoacustic system offers different models with different absorption capacities.
In this way, it provides solutions for the specifications present in venues such as concert halls, auditoriums, theatres, recording studios, churches, meeting rooms, classrooms, restaurants, hospitals, etc
Thanks to different combinations in their face side and their circular holes besides a sound-absorbent black veil, thermically attached to the back side, Spigogroup is capable to offer a wide and varied range of high quality models with different choices and possibilities. Such as decorative models (without rear perforations) or curved panels according project.
Terminology (Example Model 28-16-32)
- Channel: 2,8 mm.
- Distance drilled: 16 mm.
- Distance of channels: 32 mm.

As you have to interpret the panels
When chooding Spigoacustic panels, it is important to understand well the nomenclature which Spigogroup uses to identify each model. Therefore, through the following guide, Spigogroup tries to explain easily how to interpret them:
- Concealed Form T-15: 1200×300 mm.
- Semiexposed Form T-15/T-24: 1200×300 mm.
- Concealed Form T-24 + grapa: 1200×300 mm.
Wall Covering (Male-female joint)
- 1200×300 mm.
- 2400×300 mm.
Areas of application
Curvature of panels
We put at your disposal the possibility to curve the Spigoacustic panels. (Minimum Radio 4 meters)
What are acoustic panels
We call acoustic panels to those panels that incorporate sound-absorbing material, used in acoustic conditioning and reverberation control of a room. They are usually installed as part of the walls or ceilings of the space we want to improve acoustically.
Wood is a rigid, non-porous material that acts as a sound reflector. To maintain the warm appearance of wood, but achieve high sound absorption, our acoustic panels have slots and perforations in different openings, shapes, and sizes. Behind our panels, a sound absorbing material, such as rock wool, must be added. Depending on the area and dimensions of the perforations, the type of rock wool, and the free space that is foreseen in the installation, the whole assembly will offer a greater or lesser degree of acoustic absorption. And depending on the reverberation time that we need for the room, and the surface that we can treat with acoustic panels, we will choose acoustic panels with a greater or lesser acoustic absorption capacity.
What sound absorption do Spigoacustic panels offer?
No wooden panel, perforated or not, has sound absorption on its own: it is required to incorporate a sound-absorbing material (such as rock wool).
The technical data sheets of the Spigoacustic range show the sound absorption to be expected from the assembly once installed, including rock wool and a plenum (void space), according to the UNE-EN ISO 354 test standard, in its E100 configuration (100 mm plenum with 40 mm thick rock wool, density 70 kg/m3), simplified according to ISO EN-11654 to obtain the average absorption αω (sometimes called aw) and the practical absorptions αp (or ap). With these parameters, and knowing the surface and geometry of the room, a professional architect or interior designer can calculate the expected reverberation time for the room. We can also provide the sound absorption parameters in other configurations: if the project involves someone with expertise in architectural acoustics, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What finishes are available?
The Spigoacustic range offers great versatility in its final appearance and can be used in contemporary or classic design languages. We can choose from standard or custom melamine finishes, natural varnished wood veneers (beech, oak, cherry, walnut, maple…), prefabricated varnished woods, matte solid color lacquers from RAL, PANTONE or NSC charts, or HPL laminate outer surfaces. If your project requires a made-to-measure finish, for orders over 180 sqm, we may also be able to offer you a solution: do not hesitate to contact us.
Where to install acoustic panels
Wooden acoustic panels are installed as ceiling or wall cladding in any room or building where it is important to be able to understand the human voice. It is common to find them in cinemas, theatres, or auditoriums. Also in educational centers, such as universities, schools, or high schools, where clarity and acoustic clarity is essential for classes to be understood perfectly. The same applies to offices, meeting rooms, offices, or medical rooms, where poor acoustics can seriously impair the intelligibility of conversations. They are also used in cultural buildings such as museums or exhibition halls, and in commercial buildings and hospitality establishments such as hotels, bars, and restaurants: the lack of acoustic absorption creates a noisier and more unpleasant environment, which reduces acoustic comfort and the perceived comfort of the room. Studies have linked low acoustic comfort to shorter stay times in the sales room or in restaurants, which can be detrimental to the sales of a retail or hospitality outlet that does not have adequate acoustic response.
What are the advantages of acoustic panels?
The advantages of acoustic panels are many, but the most important is that they guarantee a good acoustic conditioning in the room where they are installed, because they manage to reduce excessive reverberation times that are so annoying for a good acoustic comfort. Reverberation is the permanence of sound beyond what it should for a correct hearing and understanding of the message, caused by the bouncing of sound waves on hard, non-absorbent surfaces. Explained in a more technical way, the “reverberation time” (T60) is a measure of the time that required for the sound to “fade away” in an enclosed area and decrease by 60 dB, once the source of the sound emission has stopped.
In addition to acoustic improvements, wooden acoustic panels offer clear aesthetic benefits. In addition to the many finishes available, the material itself is elegant and highly valued in decoration and interior design because it is very warm and helps to convey feelings of comfort. From the point of view of respect for the environment, acoustic panels are an ecological solution when they use wood certified with PEFC or FSC seals, which guarantee that they come from sustainably managed forests. These certifications also ensure that a product has been produced by a manufacturer that also guarantees the maintenance of a PEFC or FSC Chain of Custody System that reaches the final product.
Our acoustic panels are not useful towards isolation or soundproofing
Our acoustic panels are useful for acoustic conditioning because, together with a sound-absorbing material, they reduce the reverberation time of the room. Our panels have no influence on the transmission of sound, either from one room to the next, from a room to the outside (emission), or from the outside to the inside of the room (immission). If the aim of your project is insulation or soundproofing, to prevent the transmission of noise, unfortunately our panels will not be able to help you, and we recommend that you turn to companies that specialise in acoustic insulation.
