The incorporation of wood ceilings in inner linings in architectural projects is widespread nowadays, because of the added value provided by wood ceilings from an aesthetic point of view, and because they are an important ally when carrying out the acoustic conditioning of rooms and spaces.
The choice of wood ceilings is important. Not all wood ceilings are the same. It is important to assess the type of wood used to make the wood panels. The range of finishes offered for different types of wood ceilings should also be taken into account. Furthermore, when we look at acoustic ceilings, we should also consider the available models of wood panels in terms of dimensions and the optimal type of perforation (square, circular, slotted…) to carry out the acoustic conditioning of the room. It is even interesting to know that there is a possibility of havingwood ceilings custom manufactured to our specified dimensions and holes.
Another important aspect which is sometimes neglected, is that of the fixtures used when installing wood ceilingsor a false ceiling: we should determine whether we wish to have visible, partially hidden or completely hidden fixtures, the type of closure beam around the perimeter, if the machining of the wood panelling on walls matches the one we wish to use in the wood ceilings, and so on.
And finally, it is advisable to know the range of complementary wood panels that are available, such as those used to install downlights, speakers, ventilation grilles and other systems. Again we need to know whether we could complementary wood panels made to measure.
