IMPROVING SINCE 1908
Wood wool cement panels have been proving their worth in construction for more than a century. Wood wool has many advantages::
Wood wool is a natural product. Depending on your point of view, that sometimes brings a few disadvantages with it:
We manufacture our wood wool from 100% PEFC-certified wood. Wood comes from certified, responsibly managed forests. The other ingredients are water and a mix of cement and lime. Wood wool cement panels are an ecologically sound choice and are therefore excellent for use in projects with sustainability certification such as BREEAM, WELL or LEED.

You can use wood wool cement panels as a finish for walls and ceilings. Wood wool is an aesthetic finish, and because of the open structure of the wood wool fibres, the panels also absorb sound. That’s why wood wool is commonly used to improve the acoustics of rooms. We improve the acoustic and thermal performance of the insulation panel by combining the wood wool with additional insulation such as PIR, EPS or rock mineral wool.
It is quite easy to install wood wool cement panels. We have prepared instructions for the correct installation of each wood wool cement panel.
