Timber Species

The colours shown are as accurate as possible, but we recommend that you request product samples before making a final selection.

All timber species have their own natural variations of colour and grain and product samples may not fully reflect the colour variation that can occur.

Finishing

All battens are finished in the factory. Zenthe clear flat varnish is our standard finish

Some white wash & stains are available if matching to other finishers is required. Please contact us today.

Acoustic Backing & Sound Installation

Acoustic backing panels can be 12mm (0.40 NRC) or 25mm (0.60 NRC) and are incorporated into the system for great NRC performance. They also reduce costs as they can replace the need for alternative wall & ceiling lining.

The acoustic panels have a Group 1 (Aus) and Group 1S (NZ)  fire rating and are available in the range of colours shown.

Alternatively, acoustic blanket is recommended for achieving up to 0.95 NRC

Polyester Colours
Fittings

The male and female aluminium track is screw fixed into the back of the batten and the front of the horizontal track.

Wall Batten Installation

Panel Frame fix - straight wall (acoustic integration)

The Zenthe panel frame is horizontally screw fixed onto timber or steel framing at 450mm to 600mm centres then the 12mm acoustic backing is slid into place between the panel frames. The Zenthe batten connector is then screw fixed onto the panel frame at the desired spacing and the Zenthe batten infill is screw fixed into the back of the rebated feature batten and simply clicked into place. A very quick and simple installation.
