Timber protective walls
made of LIGNO®
Wall claddings for the avoidance of injury in sports halls
LIGNO® Acoustic Sport is the variant of the Lignotrend acoustic panels for use on area-elastic protective walls in sports hall. The elastic substructure, which is part of the system, ensures the necessary dissipation of force; optimised cladding details further minimise the risk of injury for sportspeople. Naturalness in real wood and design quality, acoustic effectiveness and the necessary sturdiness are combined in one element.
Safe and aesthetic design of protective walls
Configuration options - LIGNO® Acoustic Sport
Spruce, beech and oak are suitable wood types for the panel surfaces in the sports sector – all in knotless quality. LIGNO® Acoustic Sport is available in two certified profile variants.
The special geometry and selected wood types of the LIGNO® Acoustic Sport impact-resistant elements increase stability. Chamfered slat edges minimise the risk of injury. This also makes them suitable for use as sturdy wall claddings in children's day care centres.
Movement, dynamics and interaction in sport should not degenerate into disturbing noise. Protective walls with LIGNO® Acoustic Sport panels improve the room acoustics. The real wood elements are also suitable for use as ball impact resistant ceiling claddings or sturdy wall claddings – e.g. in children's day care centres.
The necessary laboratory-tested design details are freely available: Planning details for gates, rope boxes, control room glazing and much more can be found in the Lignotrend detail catalogue.
In the room acoustics planning, particular attention is paid to the room size, intended use and acoustic requirements. Even before implementation, the effect of room acoustics measures in movement rooms and sports facilities can be estimated online with the Lignotrend room acoustics calculation tool. Room size, use and acoustic requirements are taken into account.
For meeting places, the elements can be equipped with a flame retardant real wood surface. In case of additional requirements for the substructure, a non-combustible version in metal is also available for this.
With LIGNO® Acoustic Sport, naturally grown timber can also be used as an ecological and low-emission material in sports hall interior finishings. The production is PEFC-certified and the products meet the strict natureplus requirements for building biology and sustainability.

Many people are not aware that in most interiors action with regard to the room acoustics is needed. Indeed, room acoustics is important in the planning – and not only in halls or classrooms, but everywhere, even in the private dwelling environment. Quiet and good speech intelligibility increase the practical value of the room – quite apart from the positive health effect of noise reduction.
Various profiles and low-frequency absorbers

To room acoustics calculator
With the Lignotrend room acoustics calculator, reverberation or noise level reductions can be calculated and compared with the regulations of DIN 18041 - Audibility in rooms. Planners and building owners can use the online tool to make orienting calculations for the required absorber surfaces from Lignotrend products. A distinction is made according to the room groups from DIN.

The Lignotrend production department specialises in producing acoustic panels and load-bearing cross-laminated timber elements with high-quality visible surfaces in real wood. From aesthetic knotless to naturally knotty: For the one-ply-panels of the visible surfaces, Lignotrend processes various types and grades of as-grown timber.
Silver fir – oak – etc.
When building rooms for a large number of people according to the Venue Regulations, suspended ceilings and claddings often have to be executed with flame-retardant surfaces.
Therefore, variants were developed for the surfaces of the LIGNO Acoustic light and LIGNO Acoustic Sport acoustic panels that have been tested for flame retardancy.

Since 2006, Lignotrend products have fulfilled the particularly strict criteria for the natureplus® quality mark and thus officially belong to the most environmentally friendly and harmless building materials in Europe.
Advantages in sports hall construction:
Impact protection with LIGNO® Acoustic Sport
LIGNO® Acoustic light
The standard version of the LIGNO® Acoustic light real wood acoustic element is used for acoustically effective wall claddings where neither force dissipation nor impact protection is required.To product page

Important update for LIGNOTREND-dimensioning programme LTB-X v2.01
The pre-dimensioning and verification software LTB-x for slab and roof components has received an important update, which above all makes the design of storey slabs more realistic and economical.
In the new version 2.01, a more precise design of the deflection and the vibration behaviour of the elements has been implemented. The improvement of the verification procedure thus concerns the very often decisive criterion of serviceability. It is recommended to use only the latest version. Possibly a lower element height for the ceiling component made of LIGNO® is sufficient to safely solve the existing span.
The background of the update is the engineering proof that now also for the x-generation of the Lignotrend ceiling systems the visible position may be taken into account when determining the overall stiffness of the cross-section.
