What Are Perforated Acoustic Wood Panels?
Designed to reduce noise levels projected by speakers, musicians and other sound events, perforated wood panels also decrease sound reverberation within a building so sound does not disturb adjoining rooms in the same building. Perforated acoustic wood panels are not completely “perforated” but instead have tiny dents in them to absorb and centralize sound waves. In addition, these specialized panels may be suspended from ceilings to further reduce noise levels and echoing.
Perforated Wooden Acoustic Panels
The right soundproofing and sound absorption can be critical to the success of your business. It’s tempting to think soundproofing is only required in situations where sound control is a must, such as in a recording studio, or where the surrounding sound is prohibitively loud, like an apartment above a nightclub.
However, the fact is improving the acoustics of your business can make a huge difference in your success. Offices and businesses that have strong acoustics, often through the use of some soundproofing material like wooden acoustic panels, bring a level of sophistication that other businesses do not share. Those visiting your office, business or patronizing your store may not even realize it, but there’s something peaceful and confidence-bolstering about being in a space with good acoustics, and that may reflect in how your customers or clients respond to you.
But why acoustic wood? Conventional materials aren’t always as attractive as we would like, or at least, their look may not be appropriate for certain businesses or spaces. Wood acoustic panels never look out of place. Like the idea of improved acoustics itself, attractive wood panels in an office or business bring an added sense of style and grace to the surroundings.
Keep in mind these are not necessarily just pure, blank wooden acoustic panels, either. We can provide you with custom patterns and designs to your specifications, so your wood acoustic panel soundproofing efforts match your existing décor or enhance it in a way you previously may not have considered. Whether you opt for wall wood acoustic panels, ceiling panels, suspended baffles or some combination of these, wood acoustic panels can elevate your business or office on a variety of levels.

How Do Perforated Acoustic Wood Panels Work?
Perforated acoustic panels absorb and diffuse sound so that the ideal frequencies travel evenly around a room. These panels achieve absorption and diffusion through two unique design elements — wooden facing and holes in the panel’s surface.
Acoustic wood panels capitalize on wood’s reflective properties to help sound spread around a room. However, these panels determine which frequencies are reflected and which stop at the panel.
The holes in perforated wood panels are there to welcome specific frequencies. Designers determine the position and size of the hole according to the frequencies they want the panels to absorb. When a sound wave enters the holes, only the frequencies with enough energy to make it out reflect around the room. The others convert into heat and dissipate inside the panel. As a result, perforated panels can limit harsh frequencies to improve overall sound quality.
What Are Perforated Acoustic Panels?
Perforated acoustic panels are wooden sheets that reflect some frequencies and absorb others. Designers manufacture these panels to hang on walls and ceilings because hard surfaces reflect sound with minimal discrimination.
A perforated wood panel can control which frequencies reflect around a room, essentially tuning it to taste. Each perforated acoustic panel features a unique design that absorbs specific frequencies and allows others to reflect. Some panels feature small holes, while others have slits or grooves.
As some of the most effective tools for controlling sound in a room, perforated wood panels are popular in concert halls, churches, auditoriums, home theaters, recording studios and beyond.
Are Wood Walls Good for Acoustics?
Wood allows sound energy to reflect and reverberate. As a result, wood is a fine starting point for a room in terms of acoustics. However, wood walls require treatment to tailor the room’s acoustic performance. Installing foam panels on wooden walls will minimize echoes and reverberations. Adding perforated wood panels will allow you to control the specific frequencies reflected by absorbing unwanted sound energy.
