6100 Modular Cube
The energetic appearance of open-cell systems is timeless. Choose your cell widths and depths.
The 9Wood Modular Cube offers a cell wood ceiling look in a modular or tiled appearance. The 6100 Modular Cube style hangs from and is accented by either 15/16″ T-Bar grid or 9/16″ T-Bar grid. Members are typically solid wood, but veneers are substituted in some applications.
The Modular Cube is used in ceilings where a large percent opening is desired. The vertical member orientation creates a cut-off angle, which highlights the beauty of wood while hiding the plenum. Access is achieved by lift, shift and removal. In seismic areas, safety tie-off wires may be required.
Modular Cubes 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 Modular Cube 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 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.
Modular Cubes 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 Modular Cube permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Modular Cubes typically require safety-wire tie-offs or a lock-down screw. Please consult local code or a licensed engineer for any additional requirements.
Species & Finishes
9Wood offers both domestic and imported species for the Modular Cube. Clear, matte sheen finish is standard; custom stain matches are available. For additional information see our species article.
Modular Cubes are suspended from 15/16″ or 9/16″ heavy duty T-Bar main runners. Main runners are typically 2′ on center.
Modular Cubes typically weigh 2-4 pounds per square foot, depending on members per linear foot and species.
