8100 Wood Grille Wave
Create graceful curves that meet your specifications with this flexible version of our grille system.
The 9Wood Grille Wave Style wood ceiling offers a flexible wood grille design for a vaulted or undulating ceiling. The standard panel widths are 12″ or 24″. Standard panel lengths are 4′, 6′, 8′, or 10′ (nominal).
The Grille Wave uses a pre-assembled flexible panel. A curved suspension system is first installed (curved T-Bar or radiused tubing). Then the panels are flexed and married to the radiused suspension system using screws. 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.
Wood Grille Waves 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 Wood Grille Wave 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.
Wood Grille Waves 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 Wood Grille Wave permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Flexible crosspiece backers provide seismic code compliance by means of mechanical direct screw attachment to T-Bar via the flexible cross-piece backer. Please consult local code or a licensed engineer for any additional requirements.
