Enhance Education Environments with New Troldtekt Acoustic Panels

Creating spaces that foster learning, creativity, and collaboration is crucial for learning environments. One key aspect often overlooked in education design is the acoustic environment. Excessive noise in schools can be detrimental to concentration, learning outcomes, and overall wellbeing. Troldtekt acoustic wood wool panels offer a versatile and sustainable solution to this challenge, enhancing the learning environment for students and teachers alike. 

Excellent acoustic performance

Troldtekt panels are renowned for their exceptional acoustic properties. Made from natural wood fibres, the panels effectively absorb sound, reducing reverberation and controlling noise levels within classrooms and shared areas.

Aesthetic appeal 

Beyond their acoustic benefits, Troldtekt panels also contribute to the aesthetic appeal of educational spaces. Troldtekt panels can be specified in the Ultrafine 1mm wood wool structure, with options for other structures available on requests. The panels come in a range of natural colours, as well as custom colour options to complement any design scheme, from traditional to contemporary. Whether used on ceilings or walls, Troldtekt panels add warmth and character to classrooms, hallways, and other areas, creating inviting and inspiring environments for learning.

White or pale-coloured ceilings and walls enhance both natural and artificial lighting conditions as they reflect light more effectively. White walls and ceilings also allow indirect lighting, which has a positive effect on pupils’ academic performance.

White-painted or pale Troldtekt acoustic panels will reflect a high percentage of light. White-painted Troldtekt panels reflect approx. 71%, while Troldtekt natural wood acoustic panels reflect approx. 55% of the light.

Durable and sustainable

Troldtekt is a robust material that combines the strength of cement with the breathability of wood, making it ideal for high-traffic areas such as schools and gymnasiums. As Troldtekt is also simple and quick to install and virtually maintenance-free, the overall lifecycle cost of choosing Troldtekt acoustic panels is very reasonable. Panels can be repainted multiple times and still maintain their acoustic performance. In many buildings, Troldtekt holds up so well that the ceilings can stay where they are following major renovation work – even in repurposed buildings.

Perfect for healthy learning environments

As children spend about 20% of their waking hours in school, school architecture is very important for their learning and well-being. Since Troldtekt acoustic panels can both absorb and release moisture, they also help to ensure an indoor climate where the air is neither too dry nor too humid.

At the same time, Troldtekt is documented as being free of substances which are harmful to humans or the environment. Troldtekt panels are also certified Gold Standard according to the Cradle-to-Cradle principles, further reducing their environmental impact.

Versatile and adaptable

One of the key advantages of Troldtekt panels is their versatility. They can be easily integrated into both new construction projects and renovations, making them suitable for a wide range of educational settings. Furthermore, with Troldtekt panels having a fire rating group number of Group 1-S (when tested to ISO 5660-1:2015), they meet most New Zealand interior fire protection design requirements. Whether used in classrooms, auditoriums, gymnasiums, or libraries, Troldtekt panels can be customised to meet the specific acoustic and design requirements of each space.

Troldtekt acoustic wood wool panels offer architects a sustainable and effective solution for enhancing the acoustic environment in educational settings. By improving sound absorption, enhancing aesthetics, and promoting sustainability, Troldtekt panels positively contribute to creating inspiring and functional learning environments for students and teachers alike.
