How to calculate the required amount of panels?

What do the panels consist of? Are they made of wood?
The panels are made of polyester felt and the slats are made of MDF or plywood coated with high pressure laminate.
Polyester felt is made of recycled plastic.
Do the panels reduce noise?
The panels dampen echo and noise. You can see the test results here.
Are the panels waterproof? Can the panels be installed in the entry room of a bathroom or sauna?
The panels cannot be claimed to be water or moisture proof. The panels have been installed on the ceilings of bathroom and sauna entry rooms at the users’ own risk, and so far we have not received any negative feedback. The ventilation of the room plays an important part.
Felt and laminate are not sensitive to moisture unlike MDF, which is the inner material of the slats.
How to install the panels?
There are different options for installing the panels – directly on the wall or on wood laths.
You can fix the panels directly to the wall with screws (included) or with assembly adhesive / silicone (eg Moment One for All assembly adhesive).
We recommend using screws as the first option, as this allows for the panels to be reused.
Can I cut the panels myself?
You can cut the panels yourself.
The width of the panels can be cut to from the felt part with a carpet knife. We recommend cutting the width of the panels during installation to achieve a more accurate result.
We recommend making lengthwise cuts with a fine-tooth circular saw. A high-quality result can be achieved if the saw has a guide/bar.
Is it possible to come and see the panels?
You can view samples in the showroom of Plaat Detail OÜ (Suur-Paala 5, Tallinn) and in Ehituse ABC stores all over Estonia.
Can I get panels with a custom design?
You can combine the panels to create a personal design – select the colour of the felt (black, grey), the composition material of the slats (natural MDF, black MDF, plywood) as well as the finish of the slats.
The selection of slat finishes includes all high-pressure laminates sold by Plaat Detail.
Please note that the minimum quantity of custom design panels is five.
