Wood


Description

Wood panel ceilings, like metal ceilings, are not often used in office spaces as they tend to be a high-end finish. Wood panel ceilings do not offer the same acoustical properties as acoustical ceiling tile or drywall ceilings.


Tips

O+M Tips

  • Wood panel systems can be cleaned with microfiber cloths and appropriate Green Seal certified products.
