Acoustical Wood Collection

Alto consists of a perforated core with wood veneers (or laminates) applied to the surface. Groove patterns are then machined into the face to expose the core perforations and create acoustic transparency.

Alto can be shipped as planks or panels that are field installed over nailers and absorbers, or pre-built as all-in-one Ensemble panels.


Simply select the desired finish and groove spacing, then choose planks for a continuous surface or panels/Ensemble for a panelized look.

  • Alto tongue and groove planks create a hardwood floor-like appearance.
  • Planks are easily field cut and nailed in place around doors, windows, and other architectural features.
  • Alto panels are hung on z-clips and can be custom sized to your dimensions.
  • Ensemble arrives as a ready to hang panel complete with fiberglass and frame.
