Woodform Sonoline

Sonoline planks combine highly effective acoustic absorption with pure architectural aesthetic and materiality that is durable, pre-finished and functional. Its invisible mounting system is suitable equally to walls and ceilings, where the precision jointing of its component planks forms a smooth seamless surface.

Each Sonoline plank features an arrangement of drilled perforations and visible horizontal millings, backed by sound deadening material. The small surface interruptions formed by the drillings and millings act as multiple resonance chambers. Sound waves entering a chamber are dissipated by frication, particularly those of medium frequency.

Key Features
  • Can be supplied as fire rated to achieve a Group 1S rating
  • Excellent sound absorption and reverberation control
  • The rail mounted installation system allows for a fastener free, demountable and re-useable wall finish
  • Interlocking engineered panel edge treatment
  • Black acoustic felt backing
  • Design with the knowledge that Sonoline can be bent — curved walls and other shapes are readily achievable
  • Exceptional high impact and durability for sports centres etc
  • A stylish range of surface finishes from timber veneers, melamine and painted options
