Helping to keep building costs down

Heraklith® Wood Wool panels are durable and long lasting. They require minimal maintenance over their lifetime and as they comply with increasingly tight energy-saving and environmental legislation, they maintain the value of the property for longer.

We find numerous examples of where wood wool panels were installed many years ago and where they are still in use today.

One such example is the Bio Rex cinema in Helsinki, Finland which opened in 1936. It was not Helsinki’s biggest cinema but it was indisputably the most modern. It boasted all the very latest technology and a top of the range Western Electric Wide Range sound system.

To ensure good acoustics, fire resistance and thermal insulation, the walls of the auditorium were clad with wood wool panels. Although the cinema has since undergone several refurbishments, wood wool panels are still the solution of choice more than 80 years later.
