Micro-Perforated Wood

 

ACGI MicroPerf panels combine the beauty of wood with the sound absorption of acoustic insulation. Small holes, or micro perforations, are made in the wood, which allows the sound to travel through the wood and reach the insulation. Since the holes are extremely small, they are not visible from a normal viewing distance. Not only can MicroPerf be used for both walls and ceilings, but it can also be used for flat or curved panels in custom or standard sizes. Any of ACGI's suspension methods or wood veneers can be used with the MicroPerf panel.
