For internal systems choose from our premium range of Pantone fabric colours to create unique statements in colour, or simply select our standard
monochrome fabric.

For external systems where you have gaps in between your timber slats you have the choice of our standard monochrome fabrics (in certain situations) or black UV resistant breather membranes. Please contact BCL for more information.

Slat Dimensions +

Choose your slat size from any of our standard dimensions:

19, 25, 44, 69, 94, 119 & 144mm

Examples: Slat Dimensions Example

Timber Profiles +

We have a range of timber profiles that can be used depending on whether your slats are ‘open’ with gaps in between, like our acoustic panels or ‘closed’ with the slats overlapping, typically used for external cladding.

Acoustic Class / Gap +

Internal Walls

BCL panels can achieve the very highest acoustic performance. The larger the gap between slats the greater the acoustic performance. You can decide your gap based on performance or simply what you would like to see.

The acoustic performance of your system is dictated by the 'open area' of your panel, that is the % of open space that allows sounds energy to pass through to the acoustically absorptive insulation. The greater the open area, then the higher the acoustic performance…

The relationship between open area and acoustic performance classes are set out in the following table
