Origin

Flarø is a full wall acoustic panel and is made of Douglas fir wood from a major Danish wood manufacturer. The characteristic Douglas fir gives this acoustic wall panelling a look which is classic, yet rich in personality. The origin of the wood is Germany. The trees are harvested with tradition and sustainability in mind to ensure a healthy forest, which will in return produce majestic and impressive trees. Each tree is carefully selected by the foresters, to ensure the highest quality and then cut down in a manner that causes no harm to the surrounding flora and fauna. The Danish manufacturing line is run on bio-based fuel and Nordic wind energy and they care intrinsically for a maximised usage of the tree. This is where a:gain enters the frame. Some material is discarded from the regular production due to certain, unavoidable flaws, this can be knots too large to be fixed or an uneven planing, meaning the material may no longer adhere to the manufacturers standard production. We then take that material and use it in our own products, meaning all in all nothing goes to waste. The German Douglas gets the respect it deserves and all of its potential is realised in products, we hope will last a lifetime if not more. Flarø gets its name from the characteristics of Douglas, a wood species known for a very striking 'flame-like' grain.

Installation guide

This is just a quick overview of the steps that you need to follow. All the topics are described in detail in the downloadable installation sheet.

  1. Measure the surface of application. Decide if:
    1. The panels will span from corner to corner. (Ends will not be exposed)
    2. The panels will only cover some of the surface. (Ends will be exposed)
  2. Order the required amount of:
  3. Flarø panels from A:gain (When calculating the number of panels needed. Be aware that the visible width of the panel is 480mm and the last panel has a width of 442mm)
  4. Nærø acoustic batts from A:gain
  5. Spacers from your local hardware store
  6. Screws from your local hardware store
  1. Order the required amount of end-pieces, depending on “a” or “b”
    1. Ends are not exposed. You don’t need an end piece.
    2. Ends are exposed. You need two end-pieces.
  2. Mount spacers
  3. Calculate the width of a spacer.
  4. Mark vertical and horizontal lines on your surface, to insure the positioning of the spacers. Be aware, if end-pieces are applied, the vertical tolerance is very important.
  5. Fixate the spacers
  6. Install Nærø acoustic batts
  7. Start from the left side and work towards the right side. (Make sure that the cut will be hidden behind the profiles)
  1. If end-pieces will be added the first batt will need to have 26 mm removed, to ensure that the cuts are hidden behind the profiles.
  2. The last batt needs to be cut in order to fit behind the last panel.
  3. Mount Flarø panels
  4. Start from the left side and work towards the right side.
  5. Make sure that the spacers are hidden behind the horizonal spacers
  6. Adjust the last panel by removing the excessive ends of the horizontal profiles or by cutting the whole panel into the required measurement.
  7. If the whole profile is cut in width, it will be necessary to move and/or rotate the last profile to hide the cut.
