Monolithic appearance delivered with exceptional acoustics and practicality.

Adding the warmth of wood with exceptional sound absorption properties, Decoustics’ Solo acoustically perforated panels and planks are an excellent choice for a variety of both ceiling and wall applications. Solo is available as a panel (Solo-M), plank (Solo-P) and dark core (Solo Dark Core) with a number of grooving options to help you achieve your design intent.

Solo-M and Solo-P are constructed with perforated no-added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) medium density fiberboard (MDF) with a natural wood veneer laminated to the face and an acoustically transparent black mat to the back. Although the percentage of open area of Solo is approximately 6%, the unique v-grooves create a two sided “funnel” effect that allows sound to be absorbed at a variety of angles thereby focusing the transfer of energy over a broader surface area of absorption material. Absorption characteristics can also be modified by changing the substrate thickness.

The perforations virtually disappear at a distance, giving the appearance of a monolithic wood ceiling or wall installation. All Solo products are manufactured for a precise fit, delivered on site fully finished and ready for installation.

 

Solo sample

Solo-M Panels

Acoustical wood panels consisting of a composite wood core finished in a natural wood veneer. Panels can be fully grooved or stop-grooved to create an integral border of any width or frame.

 

Solo sample

Solo-P Planks

Acoustical wood planks consisting of a composite wood core finished in a natural wood veneer. Tongue and groove construction gives the ceiling or wall a monolithic appearance and allows for easy trim accessory installation.

Suspension and Mounting Systems

Decoustics Ceilencio® is an integrated acoustical panel ceiling system consisting of a proprietary concealed extruded aluminum grid and panels. The ceiling is 100% downwardly accessible via a unique torsion spring mechanism which permits individual panels to be “hinged” down (or completely removed if necessary) for access to mechanical and electrical services. The grid is suspended using hanger wires, rods or similar suspension components.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Typically installed in areas where a floating panel effect is desired. A minimum 4″ (100mm) reveal is required around each panel to facilitate a progressive installation. A 1″ (25mm) reveal around each panel is possible, however perimeter panels require a minimum 4″ (100mm) reveal.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Typically installed in areas where a floating panel effect is desired. A minimum 1″ (25 mm) reveal is required around each panel to facilitate installation. The panels clip onto an installer supplied frame or grid system and are individually removable by lifting upwards moving sideways and lowering. The frame or grid system is secured using hanger wires or rods supplied by the installing contractor.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Typically suspended directly from frame/grid to conceal the metal suspension system. Panels are installed using a mechanical z-clip (slide and engage) method of fastening.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Typically fastened directly to a firm substrate such as gypsum board, concrete, steel deck, wood or a similar surface. Panels are installed using a mechanical z-clip (slide and engage) method.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Panels lay into an exposed standard or custom suspension grid and are supported on all edges. For larger panels an intermediate T-bar is employed and secured to clips on the panel backs to reduce panel sag. The entire assembly lays into the exposed grid. In all cases, the ceiling system is 100% accessible. Ceiling perimeter trim options include an exposed wall mold, shadow mold, or T-bar.

Specifications

Detail Drawings

Panel ends are supported at ceiling-wall junctions using exposed wall moldings or T-bar components. Panel can be either butted together, have defined joints or mounted to provide wide reveals. Span panels can be up to 10′ (3050mm) long with 100% accessibility to plenum spaces depending on panel size. Panels are removed by lifting, tilting and lowering.

Detail Drawings

Typically used in waffle slab construction to create a ceiling with depth and architectural interest. Sunken panels are attached using mounting J-clips and a minimum space of 2-1/4″ (57 mm) is required behind the panel to accommodate hardware and installation. The back of the panels are typically positioned 2-1/4″ (57 mm) down from the top of the recess in the waffle (coffer). A floating panel effect is achieved via a minimum 1″ (25 mm) wide reveal which is required around each panel to facilitate installation.
