Denmark’s Experimentarium museum has seen architects specify Troldtekt wood wool panelling extensively throughout.
The museum, in Hellerup, has been listed one of the ‘Greatest Places to visit 2018’ by Time Magazine.
An extensive renovation has meant guests can now dive into a virtual submarine safari, zoom in on the world of microorganisms or travel through the Tunnel of Senses to explore sight, touch, smell and sound.
One distraction which will not be encountered are the loud echoes and reverberations in the exhibitions and galleries from the noise of the thousands of daily visitors, due to architects CEBRA specifying the Troldtekt wood wool panelling.
These panels, in white and grey, counterpoint the museum’s raw and industrial feel and contrast with the design elements of the copper, aluminium and glass.
CEBRA explained: “We chose Troldtekt because the structure of the panels matches the raw feel we wanted. Also, because the system is removable and is discreetly suspended from the ceiling, it fulfils all the acoustic requirements.”
Troldtekt ceiling panels provide a supremely high-performance sound absorbing surface which absorbs and reduces the noise and reverberations bouncing off the interior hard surfaces.
Furthermore, because the ceiling is suspended, it can be removed or adapted to cater for exhibition changes within the 11,500 square metres of public space.
Specified across the continent, the benefits of 100% Troldtekt natural wood wool panels include high sound absorption, high durability, natural breathability, low cost life cycle performance and sustainability, as documented by Cradle to Cradle certification at silver level.
The panels also improve acoustics in many different projects, such as schools, leisure centres, pools, commercial, private and public buildings.
They are available in a range of sizes and in four grades from extreme fine to coarse – they can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour.
