7200 Modern Molding Coffer
A contemporary twist on the classic coffer, crisp angles give a modern interpretation of a timeless aesthetic.
The 9Wood Modern Molding Coffer style wood ceiling offers a coffer design typical of modern European woodwork. The coffer frame remains angular. The coffer lays into 15/16″ standard T-Bar grid below the grid. Additional veneer pattern options are available for the coffer interior panel (see 7500 Coffer Patterns).
The Modern Molding Coffer is used in spaces where a modern version of the traditional coffer appearance is desired. Picture frame assembly is used to fabricate and miter veneered molding which is attached to a veneered panel. A 3/16″ reveal is required between panels. Access is by lift, shift and removal. In seismic zones, a safety-wire tie-off may be required.
Modern Molding Coffers 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 Modern Molding Coffer is considered acoustically reflective.
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.
