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.


  • .85 NRC, no additional acoustic materials needed unlike MDF and no subwall required
  • Panels weigh 1lb 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
  • Redesigned with front and back layers of high-density acoustic board for added rigidity
  • On average, Sonus Systems are 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

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.


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 in the Layers

Sonus panels are a delicious layer cake of four important layers:

  • MDF layer for rigidity
  • High-density 6–7lb acoustic board
  • MDF layer for rigidity
  • 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

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.
