Why Should You Choose Oiled Oak Acoustic Wood Wall Panels

Why Should You Choose Oiled Oak Acoustic Wood Wall Panels

Our wood wall panels strike the perfect balance between function and aesthetics, adding texture to your interior design scheme while effectively reducing noise levels. They can also be treated with a protective finish to help keep them in good condition.

Designed for easy installation, they can be glued directly to the wall using construction glue or grab adhesive, screwed into 45mm timber battens (for Class A sound absorption), or secured to the ceiling joists.

High-Quality Materials

Featuring slats of oak wood and backed by black recycled felt, this modern wall panel makes an elegant statement in any space. The slats are separated by a gap of 1.3 cm to reduce noise and eliminate echoing and reverberation, creating a quiet, soothing atmosphere.

Designed to improve a room's acoustics, this sound-absorbing panel is a popular choice for offices and home studios to enhance speech intelligibility and reduce distractions.

It can also be used as acoustic wall cladding in hotels and restaurants to add a touch of luxury to spaces that will impress visitors.

The acoustic wood panels are made from high-grade materials, making them strong and easy to maintain. The slats are oak wood veneers with different oil treatments, and the backing is 9 mm of sound-absorbing felt cloth made from recycled plastic bottles.

They are fully bonded to the backing, which guarantees durability and longevity. They can be easily cut to size with a standard tool for processing wood, such as a fine-tooth saw.

The acoustic panels are also thermally insulating, which helps to improve your energy efficiency and lower your utility bills.

They can be installed by simply screwing them onto 45mm timber battens or directly on the wall using black screws for the black-backed acoustic panels and silver/grey screws for the grey-backed ones. For class A sound absorption, mineral wool can be added between the battens and panels for even better performance.


Acoustic wood wall panels have become a hot design trend that is good for the environment and able to absorb noise and reduce reverberation in rooms.

This makes them perfect for use in offices where noise distractions can lead to lower productivity and a less comfortable work environment. They are also thermally insulating and can help to keep heat in during the winter and reduce energy consumption.

These acoustic panels are made of a durable real wood veneer that is bonded to a stable E0 MDF core and covered in an environmentally friendly acoustic felt material. The slats have been carefully designed to effortlessly transform any space, providing both aesthetic refinement and superior acoustic dampening.

Easily installed, these wooden panels can be screwed directly onto walls using the correct fixings through the acoustic felt backing, or, if you’re looking to achieve class A sound absorption, they can be screwed into batons.

It is recommended that you use construction glue or grab adhesive to ensure a strong hold. It is easy to cut these panels to size using a fine-toothed saw.

Once you’ve chosen the type of acoustic panel that you would like to install in your home, it’s important to measure the area before ordering. This will allow you to make sure that the acoustic panel is the right size for your space and will fit nicely.


The smoke process darkens the natural tones of oak wood, enhancing its rich, elegant aesthetics. This makes it a popular choice for contemporary interiors, particularly in open-plan offices where acoustic performance is key.

It is also a stylish option for home cinema rooms where you want to create a high-quality immersive experience.

Our Smoke Oiled Oak acoustic wall paneling features a black recycled felt backing, adding to its style and sound performance. Its slatted design provides depth and shadowing to the walls, adding to their visual appeal.

These panels are available in a variety of sizes so that you can choose the perfect fit for your space. They can be mounted to the wall via construction glue or grab adhesive for a quick and easy installation. You can also screw them into the wall through the acoustic felt for maximum stability.

We recommend spacing the screws at 200mm intervals across the width and 800mm intervals down the length of the panel. You must use the correct fixings if screwing into a plasterboard wall to avoid damage to the substrate.

For an added level of comfort, these panels are thermally insulating and can help reduce your heating costs.

They are also incredibly low maintenance, as they only need to be dusted regularly to keep them looking like new. You can also use a soft-bristle brush or vacuum cleaner attachment to clean them.

Sound Absorption

If you live in a home or work in a building with bad acoustics, our smoked oak wood wall panels could be the perfect solution.

This acoustic wall paneling blends visual refinement with superior sound management functionality, creating the ideal space for relaxation and productivity.

Our acoustic timber panels use a 9 mm thick black recycled acoustic felt backing that absorbs sounds to reduce the reverberation in your room. This is then framed with a 45mm gap around the edge, allowing for sound insulation to be installed behind the panels.

Our acoustic wood wall panels can be screwed straight into the wall, directly through the acoustic felt, or, for class A sound absorption, screwed into batons, which is recommended if you are wanting to install these in ceilings.

Poor acoustics can be a major irritation, especially when they are caused by hard surfaces that resound and create that dreaded echo.

Our smoked oak acoustic wood wall panels can make all the difference by absorbing sounds to prevent reverberation and noise pollution in your room.

Smoking the wood darkens its natural color and highlights its grain texture, giving it a sophisticated look that can enhance any home or commercial environment.

Each batch of smoked wood reacts differently to the smoking process, meaning you may see some minor color variations when you receive your product.
