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 are eco-friendly and dramatically reduce weight, and installation is simpler. Only the great look of the old panels remains.


  • Acoustic panels can be mix and matched with hard MDF panels and direct-to-drywall, using the same Jacaranda veneer flitch for perfect grain matching and tonality.
  • Sequence-able — thanks to our close partnership to Jacaranda, panels and planks have a consistent grain patterns and tone, even across veneered MDF and direct-to-drywall veneer! No ugly, inconsistent checkerboard patterns here.
  • Panels weigh 1.5 lbs per square foot, just 30% the weight of traditional MDF, resulting in less installation cost
  • Panels consume a quarter of the natural resources and have a dramatically lower carbon footprint compared to millwork
  • On average, Sonus Systems are 28% less cost than MDF wall systems
  • .83 NRC, no additional acoustic materials needed unlike MDF and no subwall required

Trava wall panel

Wood Panel Acoustic System

Trava is designed to cover larger surface areas simply, beautifully, and most importantly, functionally. Utilizing either universal or custom hardware, transforming simple walls into a stunning ambient or accent addition, that also solves a space’s sound challenge, has never been easier.

Less space required

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

Loda & Loda LED

Wood Acoustic Baffle

Optional LED, real wood, superior acoustic core, flexible installation options, priced right. Loda throws the old “high quality, lower cost, done quickly — pick two” maxim right out the window. Loda lets designers leave tired skeuomorphic solutions in the past where they belong.


Loda looks like one solid beautiful piece of real timber, but has the noise deadening of Sonus’ industry-best acoustic material.

Aoudi Herringbone

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. Get all the sound absorbing properties of acoustic panels with the appearance of wood board!

Easy installation

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

It’s natural beauty combined with it’s practical, hard-wearing finishes, makes Jacaranda the ideal choice for most commercial and residential applications.

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 Wood for your project.
