Not Your Grandparent's Wood Panels

Wood Acoustic Wall and Ceiling Systems

Say bye-bye 
to fiberboard.

Welcome to the next generation of wood panels.

The noise cancelling acoustic core adds function, updated materials dramatically reduce weight, and installation is simpler. Only the great look of the old panels remains.


  • .85 NRC, no additional acoustic materials needed unlike MDF
  • No subwall required
  • Panels weigh 1lb per square foot, just 30% the weight of traditional MDF, resulting in less installation cost
  • Redesigned with front and back layers of high-density acoustic board for added rigidity
  • Facing edges can be square and edgebanded or rounded and wrapped
  • On average, the Sonus Wall System is 28% less cost than MDF wall systems

Wood Panel Acoustic System

Trava is designed to seamlessly cover larger surface areas simply, beautifully, and most importantly, functionally. Utilizing both universal and custom hardware, transforming simple walls into a stunning ambient or accent addition, that also solves a space’s sound challenge, has never been easier. You can’t help falling in love with our Effortless Large Vertical Installation System.

Less space required

Trava shaves a minimum of 50–75% off the space required for MDF systems


Wood Slat Acoustic Grille System

Striking yet peaceful wood slats are an excellent way to add to a space by mastering light, textures, sight lines, and pattern. For thousands of years, the application has remained largely unchanged from the Asian tradition. Veue brings that tradition to the 21st century by allowing you to also master another important sense: sound. Veue panels are placed on walls and ceilings utilizing our wood backer board system.

Wood Plank Acoustic System

When looking for modern design woodsurface-materials, don’t walk the plank. Use Aoudi planks. The design consists of multiple four, six, eight, or ten foot long panels that are six to twelve inches wide. Aoudi planks are perfect for large areas or accents.

One person can erect an entire system in hours, not days

Product Fit

We will always shoot you straight.

Sonus 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 Sonus Acoustic Systems for your project.
