Acoustical Wood Collection

Designers select from a variety of wood veneers (or laminates) and three surface hole patterns. Under the surface, the core material is perforated so sound energy has a path to the acoustical absorbers beneath.

Acoustically, four distinct Sereno composite panels have been tested – for walls with 1" and 2" thick fiberglass and for ceilings (E-400 mounting) with and without fiberglass backing. See data sheet, page 2, for NRC ratings and absorption coefficients.


Simply select the desired finish and perforation pattern, then decide whether to field-install Sereno panels over nailers and absorbers or have Kinetics pre-build and ship as an all-in-one Ensemble panel.

  • Sereno 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.
Sereno 2/10 and 4/10 utilize a 10mm perforated core, faced with 2mm or 4mm perforated veneer
Sereno 4 and 6 have continuous 4mm and 6mm holes through the veneered face and core

TAD Revealed

These patterns enable designers to create beautiful auditoriums, atriums, conference rooms, courthouses, student centers or other areas where finished wood is desired and acoustical comfort is needed.
