Carved bamboo panels: Plyboo ceilings by Smith & Fong

The new system employs the company’s carved bamboo panel products.

Smith & Fong launched the Plyboo ceilings, a line of 40 different carved and textured ceiling panels. The new system employs the company’s carved bamboo panel products, including the Reveal, Sound, Linear and Linear Sound collections, all specifically fabricated to fit all standard ceiling grids or can be installed in large panels up to 4’x10’ for custom applications.

The Reveal collection has a three-dimensional visual effect, as the panel’s face is carved in designed patterns to reveal its inner core layers. The Sound collection includes asymmetrical and parallel-lined panels with a carved interior that contributes to the sound-absorbing characteristics of these panels, which offer a noise reduction coefficient (NRC) up to 0.70. Some of the looks in the Linear collection reveal inner fiber strands, which can give a tactile touch in a ceiling application. Meanwhile, the Linear Sound collection combines qualities of both the Reveal and Linear collections, as well as offering secondary patterns and noise control components not available in the other designs.

Plyboo ceilings are made from 100-percent FSC-certified renewable bamboo; the panels pass VOC emissions standards ULEF (ultra-low emitting formaldehyde), which surpass the current CARB II standards. The panels are Class B or C fire rated. They also use Smith & Fong’s proprietary RealCore technology.
