Predikherenklooster Mechelen

Impressive rooms with excellent rest quality 

In diesem hohen Raum sorgen die LIGNO® Echtholzakustikelemente an den Giebelseiten, sowie an der Galeriebrüstung nicht nur für angemessene Ruhequalität, sondern mit ihrer gleichmäßigen Profilierung auch für visuelle Entspannung.
In den Fluren des Klosters wurden die LIGNO® Akustikelemente in Eiche als Wandverkleidungen und für den Bau umlaufender Sitz- und Lesebänke verwendet.
Im Flur wird die gekonnte Verbindung von alt und neu besonders schön deutlich. Die Verkleidung der Lesebänke in fein profilierter Eiche von Lignotrend wirkt als warmer Kontrast zu den arkadenartigen Steinsäulen die den Flur säumen.

The Predikherenklooster Mechelen, dating from 1650, has an eventful history. In 2010 the city decided to restore the baroque building and use it as a library. The traces of past times were to be consciously preserved, additions and conversions were to remain visible. The new interior and the wall panelling in oak wood also fit so harmoniously into the existing building that old and new can coexist equally.

    Product code: LIGNO® Acoustic light 3S_33_a70g_625-12-4_EI_gb_b0
    Wood type

    Various wood species are available for the visible layer. For quality reasons, individual wood species cannot be configured for all profiles; for technical reasons, surface treatments are excluded for some wood species.

    Wood type

    _EI Oak knotless 


    The visible layer is profiled with joints. The code for profiling indicates in millimetres: Element width, strip width (rounded, from/to if applicable) and joint width (rounded) as well as a letter identification for variants, e.g. with chamfered strip edges or with additional height gradation. 

    Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.


    _625-12-4 Slat profile 


    The face is subjected to a brushing _gb as standard, which produces a stronger or weaker structure depending on the type of wood and makes the surface less sensitive to scratches.  Alternatively, a smooth sanding _gs can be carried out, or on request a bandsaw cut _grimitated.


    _gb Brushed


    Depending on the type of wood, the optional application of a surface treatment is possible ex works. Individual colour finishes are always sampled for coordination. For elements in individual lengths, colour treatment is limited to max. 5 m length.
