The Acoustical Wood Collection by Kinetics Noise Control limits the harsh sound reflections often caused by the hard surface of wood. While beautiful, hard wood surfaces often create uncomfortable, reverberant environments. The Acoustical Wood Collection allows designers to create a beautiful wood finished lobby, auditorium, music room, office, conference room, church or restaurant without excessive noise and reverberation. Kinetics offers three different product configurations: Panels, Planks, and the all-in-one Ensemble. Available in your choice of finishes and patterns, it is easy to find the exact look for your project’s needs.
The Alto grooved wood surface adds visual refinement to your project while small openings allow sound to be absorbed. When butted together, the groove pattern is uninterrupted. Available in Planks, Panels and Ensemble.
Picado features surface pinholes that are invisible from a distance, yet large enough to provide excellent sound absorption. Select Picado for acoustic performance combined with a solid wood appearance. Available in Planks, Panels and Ensemble.
Sereno features symmetrical hole patterns of various sizes for the passage of sound into the concealed absorber. Select from four sound tested standards or work with Kinetics to create custom patterns. Sereno is available in Panels and Ensemble.
Balance sound absorption with diffusion. Openings in the laminate are sized and randomly spaced to optimize absorption in low to mid frequencies while creating higher frequency diffuse reflections. Available in Panels and Ensemble.
The Ensemble arrives as an all-in-one finished composite panel, eliminating the need to install nailers, absorptive board or a wood panel with trim. Ensemble is available as its own unique Crosscut grooved face, or in the Alto, Sereno, Picado and TAD patterns.
Tongue and groove planks are attached on field installed nailers. The 7-9/16" (192 mm) wide by 10' (305 cm) plank offers an appearance similar to a hardwood floor. Planks can be easily field cut to adapt to any installation and are available in the Alto and Picado patterns.
Kinetics ships panels custom fit to your dimensions up to a maximum 48" (1219 mm) x 96" (2438 mm). Panels are hung on z-clips attached to wood furring. Available in the Alto, Picado, Sereno and TAD patterns.
The Acoustical Wood Collection also features wood diffusers and reflectors. Click on the links below to learn more.
HighTones Panels combine the beauty of natural wood with the science of quadratic theory to create high frequency sound diffusing wall finishes that produce a superior acoustic environment.
Borrowing from the same science of the High Tones, the wells of the MidTones have been widened and deepened resulting in mid and high frequency diffusion.
Based on a quasi-random series that provides multi-directional diffusion without visual patterning. Ideal for studio control rooms, auditoriums, performance venues, home theaters, and worship spaces.
Designed for large spaces requiring improved sound directivity, strength, and timing of reflections from the ceiling area. Works with absorptive products to create the optimal listening experience.
