Wood Planks That Work Harder

Aoudi Acoustic Wood Wall and Ceiling Planks

Say bye-bye 
to fiberboard.

Aoudi is the next generation of wood planks.

When looking for modern design wood surface-materials, don’t walk the plank. Use Aoudi planks. The system is perfect for large areas or accents. Get all the sound-absorbing properties of acoustic panels with the appearance of wood.

Aoudi's noise cancelling core adds function, its updated materials are eco-friendly and dramatically reduce weight, and its installation is simpler. Only the great look of the old planks remains.

It's in the Layers

  • High-density 6–7lb acoustic board
  • Rigid high-density acoustic board
  • Jacaranda SanFoot Wood Veneer consisting of a unique five layer construction:
  • Two layers of polyurethane lacquer
  • High quality 0.2mm wood veneer
  • Paper interlayer
  • Aluminum, providing a moisture barrier and excellent impact resistance and fire ratings
  • Paper backing for coding of individual sheet identifications

Z Clip

The Most Accurate Concealed Hanging System Offered

Aoudi panels are designed specifically to work for Z Clips. Each clip is placed precisely on the panels and when the wall-side clips are hung at the appropriate height, Aoudi will transform any wall into the meticulously aligned wood grid you imagined. Z clips and our own custom plenum access hardware serve as the solution for ceiling applications.

Rotofast Snap-on Anchors

Fast, Easy, and Secure

For smaller implementations consisting of less panels, Rotofast Snap-on Anchors are an excellent option. Made specifically for acoustic panels, these are the most popular way to get panels up and trust they stay up.

Product Fit

We will always shoot you straight.

Aoudi panels aren't the best option for all applications. We don't recommend them in high traffic areas that need to withstand heavy damage.

Instead, we work closely with Jacaranda and other hard surface providers to seamlessly integrate and sequence wood selections from acoustic panels to MDF to real wood.

Simply put, you won't get this kind of transparency from other companies. We believe in being up-front and working together with you towards the best solution.

Take less. Make right. Re-use.

We believe in sourcing with a conscience. We partner with suppliers that think environment-first.

Designing with intention is a commitment. It means you not only design for look and function, but also to minimize the product you need to make it.

Sonus will reclaim or re-use any of our acoustic panels. And we’ll even pay for the shipping.

Use Aoudi Acoustic Planks for your project.
