A few months ago, Spigogroup launched its new solid wood slat insulation panels, the Spigogroup PET system. It was very well received and, since then, we have received many orders and also some enquiries. These are some of the most frequently asked questions:
1.- What is the Spigogroup PET system?
The new SPIGOLINE PET is an acoustic panel with a modern and timeless design that combines solid natural obeche wood slats arranged in parallel with an eco-friendly insulating panel with high thermal and acoustic performance, made of 80% recycled polyester fibres, 100% recyclable and with a low carbon footprint.
2.- Is assembly complicated?
It is very easy, quick and clean to assemble, as the low density obeche wood is very easy to handle and the PET felt can be easily cut with a normal saw, circular saw or jigsaw.
3. It is also flexible, isn’t it?
Yes, the black felt is flexible, which allows the cladding to adapt easily to walls and curved areas, thus allowing it to participate in projects with more original and avant-garde designs.
4.- Where is this flexibility best leveraged?
This characteristic makes the panel a perfect material for acoustic improvement in installations with a more striking and provocative visual appeal. It is therefore ideal in retail design where the aim is for points of sale to be attractive, functional and experiential. Also in the interior design of hotels, offices or corporate headquarters, where the aim is to transmit an avant-garde image of quality.
5.- And does it offer any other advantages?
Yes, the Spigoline PET System cladding has the same appearance on all sides of the lath. This point may not seem important but it is key to understanding the final appearance of a ceiling or wall with this cladding.
When you stand in front of it, you see the front face of the lath but, when you walk across the room, what you see are the sides. If the front face is finished but the sides are unfinished and only show the chipboard or wood fibre base when cut, it looks odd and fails to meet the decorative expectations of the cladding.
With the Spigoline PET System this does not happen. The appearance of the solid wood is uniform on all three visible faces (front and sides) from any position, providing the desired decorative harmony.
6.- How many different models of PET system panels are there right now?
The PET System comes with 4 different models (6-70-15-30, 10-30-35-30, 12-35-15-15 y 12-35-30-15) and, together with the 36 GRID system models, 12 ACOUSTIC system models and 22 LINEAR system models, they complete the extensive catalogue of Spigoline’s wide range of interior cladding solid wood slats.
