Dado 13/3 - Natural Wood Panel System
In many spaces, flat reflective surfaces can cause interfering reflections and excessive reverberation which can corrupt work environments, meeting and gathering areas, music quality and speech intelligibility to name a few. One of the most attractive approaches to controlling noise, sound reflections and excess reverberation is to utilize sound absorbing natural wood wall and ceiling panels. The Dado 13/3 Panel is a powerful union between architecture and acoustical performance. Utilizing 3mm grooves in a Class A fire rated, ULEF, FSC certified wood plank, Dado 13/3 achieves an average NRC=0.85 while maintaining the ambiance of the space with reflections at the highest frequencies.
RPG developed the Dado absorptive wood panel system to provide a decorative, structural wood panel solution that achieves high absorption values.
RPG Dado panels are typically mounted with a porous, sound absorbing core behind, such as a soft or rigid fiberglass board with appropriate density for optimum performance and to meet the requirements of the design. Mounting options include wall panel systems with a variety of cavity depths starting at 1-3/4″ total system depth, as well as options for T-Bar compatibility.
Many types of panels are used in acoustical design to control noise, sound reflections and excess reverberation. Many products on the market can achieve the acoustical requirement, but many do so without also enhancing the aesthetics of the space.
RPG offers complete, quality assured, custom millwork panel fabrication that meets both the highest aesthetic and acoustical performance criteria. With the micro perforated approach, the natural beauty of the wood is the feature, backed with the highest acoustical performance available in an absorptive wood finish.
