Acoustic properties are important in many projects, such as concert halls, auditoriums, lecture halls and gymnasiums. Austral Plywoods provides a number of acoustic options for wall and ceiling linings by way of perforations and slots. Perforations and slots are available in a number of patterns, providing a finish that is both functional and decorative.
We recommend Austral Premium AC (Interior) for acoustic purposes, using Hoop Pine veneer with an interior glueline for a lighter and brighter finish. Austral Natural BB is another option if a more natural appearance is desired.
Fire retardant options are also available.
For a decorative slat wall effect, another option is Acoustic Endurapanel®. Modern homes typically combine open plan living areas with timber and tiled floors, causing unwanted noise travel. Acoustic Endurapanel® solves this common problem by way of excellent sound absorption properties, with the added benefit of creating a beautiful feature in any home. Sound travels through the perforations in the panel and into the insulation, absorbing unwanted noise and echo. Acoustic Endurapanel® is also perfect for alfresco areas, balcony ceilings, restaurants, and shop fitouts.
