3200 Acoustic Tile
Excellent acoustic performance and the unifying aesthetic of a tiled system are hallmarks of Acoustic Tile.
The 9Wood Acoustic Tile wood ceiling offers a design with tiles consisting of fine linear grooves assembled from acoustic planks. Typical Acoustic Tiles are 24″ x 24″, 24″ x 48″ and 48″ x 48″. Grooves are 8mm wide, spaced 8mm or 16mm on center. Due to required fabrication tolerances for Acoustic Tile, engineered veneered wood composites must be used. Different suspension methods, typical of S4000 Wood Tiles, are used (see Series 4000 for details).
The Acoustic Tile uses linear grooved real wood veneers on fire rated cores while providing superior acoustic attenuation. Solid edge banding often surrounds the grooved tile. Access and seismic compliance is a product of the suspension method selected (see series 4000 Wood Tiles).
Acoustic Tiles 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 Acoustic Tile enhances acoustics with Sound-Tex™ acoustic scrim, factory-attached to the back side. For added sound attenuation, extra fiberglass absorptive material can be placed 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.
Acoustic Tiles 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 Acoustic Tile permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Acoustic Tiles utilize different suspension methods, typically using T-Bar. They may require safety wire tie-off s or screw locks to T-Bar. Please consult local code or a licensed engineer for any additional requirements.
Species & Finishes
9Wood offers both domestic and imported species for the Acoustic Tile. Clear, matte sheen finish is standard; custom stain matches are available. For additional information see our species article.
Acoustic Tiles are suspended from 15/16″ heavy duty T-Bar main runners. Main runners are typically 2′ on center.
Acoustic Tiles typically weigh 3 pounds per square foot or less.
