Timberix

Timberix panels reduce echoes by trapping and diffracting sound in the grooves and perforation found on the surface. The sound that passes through the perforation is further absorbed by an acoustic substrate such as fibreglass or mineral wool, which reduces reverberation of the space. Timberix comes in many groove specifications and perforations as small as 500 microns (that’s 0.5mm!) We also constantly use algorithms to design our panels so as to be compatible with parametric designs.

Grooved

Timberix wooden grooved panels reduce echoes by trapping and diffracting sound in the grooves and perforation found on the surface. The sound that passes through the perforation is further absorbed by an acoustic substrate, which reduces reverberation in the room. Smaller grooves are better at attenuating high frequency sounds, whereas larger grooves are better at controlling low frequency sounds.

Grooved 13/3

Grooved 14/2

Grooved 28/4

Our wooden grooved acoustic panel is made up of a series of slats and grooves. Each panel has a machined tongue and groove joint for a seamless joinery. TIMBERIX wooden grooved panels come in 4 different patterns: 13-3, 14-2, 28-4, 59-5. The first number refers to the slat size (mm) and second number refers to the groove size (mm). The surface comes in 4 types of finishing: paint, melamine, PP, and veneer. The base material can be made of MDF, fire-resistant MDF, eco-friendly MDF, black MDF, 3-layer composite, 5-layer composite or OSB.

Preparation

  1. Place of installation must be dry, with temperature no less than 10 degrees Celsius.
  2. Humidity level should be kept between 40% to 60%.
  3. TIMBERIX panels must be placed on site for at least 48 hours in order to adapt to the environmental conditions.
  4. Distance between each wooden batten should be less than 500mm, and that between each steel keel should be no more than 600mm.

Installation

  1. Mark out placement of TIMBERIX
    panels, and take into account M&E positions.
  2. Cut panels to size according to final positions.
  3. Decide on type of installation system to use.
  4. Install acoustic substrate of choice.
  5. Join TIMBERIX wooden grooved panels from top-to-bottom, and left-to-right.
  6. For wood laminate and veneer finishes, ensure that wooden grooved panels are installed with matching
    grain directions.
  7. Clean surface of the TIMBERIX panels with compressed air and gently wipe with dry cloth.

Perforated

TIMBERIX wooden perforated panels is made with a 2-layer perforation structure, which traps and diffracts sound in the holes. The sound that passes through the perforation is further absorbed by an acoustic substrate such as fibreglass or mineral wool, which reduces reverberation in the room. The perforation comes in many sizes ranging from 1mm to 25mm. Smaller holes are better at attenuating low frequency sounds, whereas larger holes are better at reducing high frequency sounds.

Parametric

Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that, together, define, encode and clarify the relationship between design intent and design response.

Parametric design is a paradigm in design where the relationship between elements is used to manipulate and inform the design of complex geometries and structures.

The term parametric originates from mathematics (parametric equation) and refers to the use of certain parameters or variables that can be edited to manipulate or alter the end result of an equation or system. While today the term is used in reference to computational design systems, there are precedents for these modern systems in the works of architects such as Antoni Gaudí, who used analog models to explore design space.

Voronoi

2D populated surface with Voronoi diagram on neodymium magnets

A curved surface is mapped with a voronoi diagram and planarized. The planarized surfaces are laser cut onto brightly colored wood or acrylic sheets and laminated with a finish of choice. The vivid colors are revealed at the edges of the planarized surfaces.

A neodymium magnetic receiver is attached the base of the surface to couple with a neodymium threaded ball. The magnetic ball receives an M4 or M6 threaded rod that is secured to a base board for mounting.

Facet

3D populated surface with tessellation on blockboard

A curved surface is tessellated and planarized. The planarized surfaces are CNC milled onto a base layer of blockboard and painted with a finish color of choice. An additional layer of tessellated blockboard sits on top of the first layer with a 12mm gap between each tessellation.

The top layer tessellation is adhered onto the base layer tessellation with construction adhesive and 38 gauge pin nails.
