Acoustical Wood Collection

Picado’s MicroPerf pinholes virtually disappear from as close as 10 feet away. Picado’s acoustical performance starts with a unique core that has over three hundred holes per square foot. Over this core, the MicroPerf veneer (or laminate) is added, transforming the surface from reflective to absorptive when absorbers are added beneath.

Picado 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, then choose planks for a continuous surface or panels/Ensemble for a panelized look.

  • Picado 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.
  • Picado 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.


  • Use on walls or ceilings
