8300 Acoustic Wood Wave
Get in the groove and apply to gentle curves with this adaptation of our aesthetically pleasing Acoustic Plank.
The 9Wood Acoustic Wave style wood ceiling offers a design with fine linear grooves for a vaulted or undulating ceiling. Typical planks are 192 mm (7 9/16″) wide, with 1/16″ wide grooves spaced apart 8mm (5/16″) or 16mm (5/8″) on center. Due to required fabrication tolerances, engineered veneered wood composites must be used. Member lengths are 4′ and 8′ (Nominal) long.
The Acoustic Wave provides a curved fine linear groove appearance while providing superior acoustic attenuation. A curved suspension system is first installed (curved T-Bar or radiused tubing). Then the planks are progressively installed to the radiused suspension system using clips. Access is through strategically located access panels or from room perimeters.
Acoustic Wood 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 Acoustic Wood Wave 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.
Acoustic Wood 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 Acoustic Wood Wave permits MEP penetrations in the ceiling’s surface. Cut panels may require supplemental reinforcement. Fixtures and diffusers must be independently supported.
Clips are typically mechanically screwed to T-Bar for seismic compliance. Please consult local code or a licensed engineer for any additional requirements.
Species & Finishes
9Wood offers both domestic and imported species for the Acoustic Wood Wave. Clear, matte sheen finish is standard; custom stain matches are available. For additional information see our species article.
Acoustic Wood Waves are directly attached to curved 15/16″ T-Bar main runners or radiused 1″ x 1″ tubing. T-Bar or tubing is typically 2′ on center.
Acoustic Wood Waves typically weigh 3 pounds per square foot or less.
