5100 Parallel Perf Tile
Perforations on our tiles provide elegant design aesthetics and excellent acoustical performance.
The 9Wood Parallel Perforated Pattern style wood ceiling tiles offer a perforated tiled appearance with a parallel (or square) perforation pattern and a non-perforated border. The 5100 style Parallel Perforated Pattern is installed using any of the 4000 series Wood Tile suspension methods.
The Parallel Perforated Pattern is the most commonly specified perforated pattern. Perforations permit acoustic attenuation. Accessibility is determined by attachment method.
Parallel Perf 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 Parallel Perf 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 treated 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.
Parallel Perf 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 Parallel Perf Tile permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Parallel Perf Tiles may require a safety wire tie-off or screw-locks to T-Bar. Please consult local code or a licensed engineer for any additional requirements.
