GUSTAFS BF PANEL GUSTAFS PANEL SYSTEM A PANEL WITH MANY UNIQUE BENEFITS Most of our products are based on a fibre gypsum board which has very good properties regarding both fire safety and acoustics. The panel is less sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity which in turn maintains the panels’ linearity over time. All together, this unique combination contributes to a panel suited for applications not only in large areas but also in a wide variety of demanding situations. FIBRE GYPSUM BOARD SOLID WOOD EDGING DARK CORE When constructing a cladding panel there are many requirements that steer the choice of component materials. Among our first demands were; a strictly plane surface, dimensional stability, fire retardation and acoustic characteristics. These demands effectively eliminate most traditional wood-based choices. However, a panel constructed of highly compressed fibre gypsum incorporates the properties needed to meet fire prevention demands and offers good acoustic characteristics while at the same time offers versatility and aesthetic charm. Prior to veneering, a solid wood edging is integrated around the panel, disguising the core material. When the veneer is then applied it covers the wooden edge and effectively gives the panel the appearance of being entirely of wood. This process contributes to the total strength of the panel making it more robust and ensures its dimensional characteristics. Using a dark core, the holes or slots in an acoustic panel will be less visible in combination with dark veneers or paints. Unless the perforation pattern is a very important part of the design, “hiding” the holes is a great new aesthetic benefit that Gustafs can offer. Gustafs recommends the use of a Dark Core for perforated acoustic panels with dark veneers like Walnut, Wenge, Mahogany, Teak or painted in dark colours.   For the lighter range of both veneers and paints we still recommend using the standard white core substrate. ENERGY SAVING Wood based panels will show bulging or shrinkage when humidity and temperature change. A fiber gypsum board is considerably less susceptible to these effects. Over time this will result in a planer and more linear surface. Due to the panel’s high density and its low level of thermal conductivity, the material helps to maintain room temperatures at a constant and reduces the need for cooling or heating. Using a fiber gypsum core naturally results in extremely low emissions and a very high rate of recycled content. Being located in Sweden gives us the opportunity to produce with renewable power sources only. The high density nonflammable core and the surface veneer’s strongly bound adhesion to the fiber gypsum board makes our panels “non-flammable”. Reaction to fire A2-s1,d0, resistance to fire K110/K210. LEADING ACOUSTICS, DESIGNED FOR EYES & EARS ACOUSTICS Acoustically, the use of innately heavy wall cladding is often favourable compared to lighter materials. Gustafs panels weighing 15 kg/m2 is roughly twice as heavy as most wood-based pan

GUSTAFS PANEL SYSTEM FANER NATURE NATURE VENEER As wood ages its colour tone matures typically for the species. Variations in colour tone and structure is a part of woods appeal. This too, is the case with veneer. Nature veneer is available in a wide variety of ­ pecies and s matures in colour tone with time and exposure to light. Most nature ­ eneers v can be purchased with FSC certification. Large areas permit a certain amount of variation where as smaller areas ­ emand d a more exacting match.
