9 Wood: Acoustic Wood Ceilings
Wood ceilings traditionally trigger cabin imagery or possibly an old-style coffered ceiling in a dark, smoky library. Alvar Aalto brought wood ceilings to modern architecture with his clean, Finnish designs. More recently, wood ceilings have been used as acoustic panels to absorb and reflect sound in concert and lecture halls, as well as to warm up the ambiance of a space. Wood ceilings may sound daunting, but the invention of suspended wood ceilings has made them as easy to maintain and install as typical dropped ceilings, with a much richer aesthetic effect.
is suspended wood ceiling manufacturer that creates “engineered to order” ceiling systems that are specific to each job. Their self titled “Operation Geeks” customize wood panels depending on acoustic and aesthetic needs, which drastically reduces waste and energy usage in storage facilities. 9Wood is committed to upholding the beauty of wood while pushing it to the limits of performance. The company is a harmonious blend between an engineered, computer-assisted manufacturing company and a high-quality, customer driven boutique fabricator.
9Wood takes its name from Division 9 FINISHES of Product Divisions within project construction specifications. Oddly enough, their suspended wood ceilings can help achieve up to 9pts LEED credits in categories such as material reuse, recycled content, rapidly renewable materials, certified wood and low-emitting materials. When in the hands of an ecologically minded company, wood is a relatively easy material to qualify as green. 9Wood takes advantage of their chosen material and transforms it into material greatness through a variety of textures and finishes.
