ASI Architectural, dedicated to providing innovative solutions for the design and build industry, introduces StrandTec Wood Fiber Ceiling and Wall Panels, which reduce echo and reverberation while simultaneously enhancing a room’s overall aesthetics. These sustainable, high-performance, cost-effective acoustical solutions can be retrofitted into an existing facility or incorporated as part of a new build. StrandTec panels provide consistent size and shape, which simplifies installation and produces a sleek final appearance.

StrandTec panels are ideally suited for a wide range of locations, including bars, restaurants, sports and entertainment venues, convention centers, corporate spaces, industrial facilities and airports, as well as schools, music rooms, gyms, houses of worship and more. The StrandTec panels are available as lay-ins, wall panels, direct-attach, backfill, t-slot or routed designs, making them a versatile option for any project.

“Manufactured from natural materials, StrandTec panels are an economical, high NRC-rated, Class A (ASTM E-84) fire-resistant alternative to fabric-wrapped fiberglass acoustic panels or foam acoustic panels,” says Jon Mestad, ASI Architectural’s Brand Manager. “In addition to its sound absorption qualities, StrandTec provides sustainable wood fiber panels with consistent panel thickness. Our unique manufacturing process also creates a panel that has less dust, allowing for cleaner installations and environments.”

StrandTec panels are made up of cementitious wood fiber, manufactured using only wood strands, Portland cement and water. Standard panel finishes are natural and white and are paintable with vivid SonoKote™ colors to fit with any décor. Natural finish panels offer a light reflectance of .60 and the white finish panels provide .70 reflectance.

StrandTec solutions are available in one-inch, 1.375-inch and two-inch thicknesses, in various dimensions, with beveled, tegular or square edge options. The tegular ceiling tiles and beveled wall and ceiling direct-attach panels have a thickness tolerance of +/-.005.
