The FOM Lumber Ceiling System from Barbican is an easy to specify, fully integrated, area or whole-room solution incorporating lighting and acoustic baffles in predefined configurations. Simply identify overall length and width for the system to cover, as well as options for baffle height, baffle spacing, wood print or acoustic color, and lumen output, and the specification is complete.
Barbican uses the FOM Cube in a unique orientation – at the top and running perpendicular to the baffles. The omnidirectional distribution from the FOM Cube helps to evenly illuminate the baffles and the space below without glare. This approach eliminates the cave effect, increases perceived ceiling height, and accentuates the wood print details in the acoustic PET baffles as a feature in the space. The Lumber AR baffles offer multiple wood grain patterns, as well as stain options to obtain exactly the look desired, and our true-to-life printing – including realistic end grain detail gives a space the look of wood with increased acoustic absorption (with NRC values up to 0.9 for the system) and the same equivalent surface area coverage of a standard ACT grid system.
