Unveiling a world first in architectural wallpaper

Architectural innovator Screenwood is introducing SOUNDLINA™, a unique woodgrain wallpaper with high acoustic performance.

Unveiling a world first in architectural wallpaper

In a notable breakthrough, Screenwood has announced a new product, SOUNDLINA™. The perforated architectural wallpaper is set to be a game-changer, designed to elevate architectural possibilities while promoting environmental consciousness. SOUNDLINA™ marks a pivotal moment in the industry, boasting high acoustic performance for noise reduction and reverberation control.

The new acoustic woodgrain wallpaper range is a result of the dedicated work of Screenwood’s engineering team. It promises architects and designers an opportunity to transform spaces in less time, with reduced installation costs – and all with a lower environmental impact. The innovative wallpaper’s patent-pending echo-reduction design achieves a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of up to 0.85 on a scale from 0 to 1, particularly when used in conjunction with the recommended perforated grid plasterboard and acoustic insulation.

What further distinguishes SOUNDLINA™ is its easy installation process, eliminating the need for joiners and empowering interior architects, designers and builders to enhance spaces economically while prioritising comfort and wellbeing.

“As a leader in architectural and acoustic wall and ceiling innovations, we’re excited to bring this revolutionary product to the market,” says Cameron Nelson, founder and director of Screenwood.

“We work closely with our customers and have an acute understanding of the design, installation, cost, and regulatory challenges they face. Thanks to SOUNDLINAwallpaper’s technical design, our customers have greater freedom to explore imaginative interior architectural concepts while reducing construction costs and time without compromise. The wallpaper’s woodgrain aesthetic and acoustic performance make it a superb choice for biophilic, environmental, biomimetic and sensorial interior design.”

SOUNDLINA™ wallpaper is pre-finished with NAVURBAN Diamond™, a surface that employs Smart NANO™ technology, offering top-tier durability. This decorative surface boasts a reinforced top layer that ensures a premium quality finish even in the most demanding interior environments. It’s a non-PVC olefin film embossed with a 3D woodgrain structure, delivering a beautiful natural aesthetic, while the product is available for interior use in rolls measuring 600mm in width and 9850mm in length.

Moreover, the SOUNDLINA™ wallpaper range has achieved a Group 1 Fire Safety Rating and is Global GreenTag certified, making it a strong choice for interior applications across a wide range of sectors. And when we say wide, we really mean it – hospitality, education, aged care, commercial spaces, foyers, hotels, shopping centres, airports, medical facilities, libraries, residential properties, conference venues and more.

What sets SOUNDLINA™ is also manufactured in Australia by Screenwood, part of the brand’s expanding portfolio of trusted decorative and acoustic architectural product innovations. These include the likes of MODULO®, STIX® and PANELS, products which are already trusted by leading interior architects and designers.

With some seriously notable projects featuring Screenwood’s innovations – including Sydney’s Allianz Stadium, the ACT Law Courts, HSBC Barangaroo, the Western Sydney Conference Centre and Pullman Hotel, the City of Perth Library and Hydro Tasmania – it’s easy to see why there is more excitement ahead.
