Screenwood’s Adaptable Acoustics

With Screenwood panels you don’t have to prioritise function over form.



BY Sammy Preston

October 1st, 2016


Addressing poor acoustics in a space can be challenging when popular treatments include trendy panels that can date quickly or alternatives that blend into their surroundings without contributing to a room’s aesthetic.

With Screenwood panels you don’t have to prioritise function over form. Acoustically rated ceiling and wall panels are available in a range of PEFC certified timber species to add the warmth and timeless appeal to any space. With the inclusion of fine-tuned acoustic backings which ‘disappear’ behind the timber slats, the space benefits from maximum sound absorption.

Used frequently in education and hospitality fitouts, Screenwood is equally suitable to commercial applications and other open-plan areas where echo reduction is critical to the amenity of the space.

Screenwood is delivered to site pre-finished, assembled into modules and cut to specified lengths, ready for a swift installation by any qualified builder. For further information please contact info@screenwood.com.au.
