2100 Panelized Linear
Stunning results, seismic compliance and straightforward installation.
The 9Wood Panelized Linear style wood ceiling offers a design where the individual wood member is wider than it is deep. The standard panel width is 12″. Standard panel lengths are 4′, 6′, 8′, or 10′ (nominal) for solid wood. Veneers with matching edge banding are frequently used in 8′ lengths. Cost budgets are typically the decision driver. Both perform well.
The Panelized Linear uses a pre-assembled panel fabrication process. This product can be installed throughout the country and is the preferred design in areas requiring seismic compliance. Full panel access is available by means of removing attachment screws hidden in reveals. Repetitive removal requires threaded 9Wood T-Bolt attachment as opposed to screws.
Panelized Linears must be cared for in a controlled interior environment (RH 25%-55% max; temp. 60°-80°) and installed only after reaching equilibrium moisture content. Should the building fall outside these limits, consult 9Wood for our Wood Ceiling Acclimatization for Professionals handbook.
The Panelized Linear can enhance acoustics via sound absorbing material placed over open reveals within the T-Bar grid. Insulation is typically provided locally.
Individual members and components can be coated with Class I (A) Fire Retardant chemicals (solid wood use FR coatings, veneered particleboard use FR formulas). Particular species or styles have not been tested.
Panelized Linears may qualify toward MR-3, MR-4.1/4.2, MR-5.1/5.2, MR-6, MR-7, IEQ-4.2 or IEQ-4.4. As all products are custom-fabricated, LEED credit opportunities are project by project. Please contact 9Wood for specifics.
The Panelized Linear permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diff users must be independently supported.
Panelized Linear styles provide seismic code compliance by means of mechanical direct screw attachment to T-Bar grid via the cross-piece backer. Consult local code for any additional requirements or a licensed engineer.
Species & Finishes
9Wood offers both domestic and imported species for the Panelized Linear. Clear, matte sheen finish is standard; custom stain matches are available. For additional information see our species article.
Panelized Linears are directly attached to 15/16″ heavy duty T-Bar main runners. Main runners are typically 2′ on center.
Panelized Linears typically weigh 2-4 pounds per square foot, depending on members per linear foot and species.
