Cella
Acoustic Linear Baffles

Entirely New. Measurably Better. Experience Performance Beyond Baffling.

Patented core technology provides exponentially better sound absorption than any other acoustic baffle. Real wood veneer ensures long term durability and sustainability. Removeable and non-removable mounting options make it simple to upgrade a preexisting space and enhance a new design. The straight profile creates unrestricted visual options with unmatched structural versatility to give absolute creative control over the design and integration of acoustic solutions. Cella is made by glueing two panels together which creates a septum for hardware to discreetly attach to. There is a lower cost baffle option which does not have a septum to ensure unmatched acoustics can be in every project. Easily integrates with Rensa Cella Lit baffles to give full flexibility on design and deliver the most impactful look.

Veneer. Real Wood.

Classic. Natural. Luxurious. Sustainable. All SoundPly products use real wood veneer which is a timeless design element that can be used in any room. Navy Island’s award-winning TruGrade veneer standards make sure the veneer of every plank is perfect for every location and used to its fullest potential. Wood remains the most sustainable building material due to its renewability and biodegradability over time. The enduring appeal of real wood increases the likelihood of reuse and extends the product lifecycle, contrasting sharply with the shorter usable life of plastic or faux wood alternatives. Choose from 700+ real wood species, slices, grades, and finishes or match to any paint or stain with or without wood grain texture for practically unlimited possibilities.

Core Information

Navy Island veneer is added to an engineered core to create SoundPly — what many would call acoustic magic. Baffles can be constructed with or without a septum. The core with a septum is two 1 in. panels glued together and the core without the septum is a 2 in. panel. When the baffle has a septum, it increases sound absorption and allows for hardware to be hidden.

SoundPly LR: The rockwool core incorporates upcycled slag from the aluminum industry, utilizing waste materials beneficially.

SoundPly RF: The glasswool core is predominantly made from recycled glass and includes a patented, environmentally friendly organic binder, emphasizing our commitment to sustainable production practices.

Cella Acoustic Data

See our Acoustic Performance for Baffle Arrays.

SoundPly’s unmatched degree of visual inconspicuousness unlocks possibilities for entirely new, non-traditional methods to incorporate studio-grade acoustic performance into any environment. At just a few feet’s distance, the millions of tiny micro-perforations across the panels’ surface become visually imperceptible. Unlike the grooved, slotted, or perforated acoustic panels produced by other manufacturers, SoundPly’s clean, microscopic perforations produce no discernible effect on a panel’s overall color or grain structure.

Standard Sizing

There are a variety of standardized sizes to suit the needs of different spaces and applications. The range of colors and finishes seamlessly integrate with any interior design. This standardization makes it easy to source, simple to install in a grid pattern, and customizable to the unique acoustics of each space. Standard sizes offer an effective, aesthetically pleasing solution for optimizing the soundscape of a room. Custom sizes are available but will cost more and may take longer to manufacture.
