Linear Sound Collection
Modern and optically fascinating, the Linear Sound series of carved acoustical panels are Plyboo’s most daring and innovative to date. As always, Smith & Fong starts by utilizing RealCore® the inherent engineered characteristics of their signature multi-layered rapidly renewable bamboo panel. By carving deeply into and through the layers of material, a complex pattern of mingling planes evokes modernism and optical movement all at once.
Combine with our Plyboo QuietWall® sound absorbing material for acoustical performance , Plyboo’s new Linear Sound Panels achieve a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of .7 and can be used in any interior for its function and dynamic design potential.

The beauty of Plyboo® is now available for ceilings.
Our new Reveal, Linear, and Sound Collections feature deep carving in and through our multilayered material that reveals mingling planes of color, texture, and optical movement.
Choose from a broad selection of patterns, colors, and textures. Our CNC-milling capability also makes custom designs practical.
Open area allows panels to be acoustically transparent or used with noise-reducing insulation. Our Linear Sound panels achieve a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 0.70.
Ribs and openings in Linear Sound panels result in styles that weigh as little as 2 lb/sf (10kg/m2).
FSC-certified, rapidly-renewable materials are used in a low-emitting, CARB Phase 2 and CA Section 01350 tested product.
Light and Air Penetration
Openings in panels allow creative use beneath light sources and HVAC diffusers or returns in the plenum.

Environmental Product Declaration & Life-Cycle Analysis
Plyboo panels are available in sizes up to 4 x 10 ft (1.2 x 3m), ½ or ¾ inch (13mm or 19mm) thicknesses. They are more durable than conventional acoustic ceiling products, easy to maintain and complement Plyboo used for wall panels, furniture, and flooring.
Plyboo Ceilings are compatible with a wide variety of ceiling types and conditions:
Install directly to substrate, mount on furring, or screw to bottom flange of suspended metal ceiling grid. Self-drilling screws with small heads fit between ribs of Linear and Linear Sound panels to semi-conceal fasteners without countersinking.
Suspension wires can be semi-concealed in the ribs of Linear Sound panels allowing installation of panels without a metal ceiling grid.
Exposed, Semi-Exposed, and Concealed Metal Ceiling Grid:
Use square edges for lay-in installation in exposed grid, or routed edges for lift-and-shift installation with narrow reveals or butt joints.
C-Clips are attached to upper side of panels and hook over ceiling grids or other supports.
Torsion Springs allow maximum accessibility with downward action and minimal ceiling height.
