WoodWool at Next Generation McDonalds to assist with Sound Absorption


An innovative design that meets eco friendly brief.

“From the materials used throughout the build process to how it’s powered, along with creating new areas of natural habitat to enhance the biodiversity of the site and local area, we’re bringing together skills and expertise from across McDonald’s and the partners we work with. From 2023 furniture and construction materials in new and refurbished restaurants will be made with recycled or certified materials and designed to be recycled or reused at end of life ”

Construction Director, McDonald’s UK & Ireland 

The Absorb-R ToughSound acoustic-panels are environment friendly, fully recyclable natural components that offer optimal sound absorption and extensive resistance to fire. Surface applications include ceiling and wall mounting.

Absorb-R ToughSound is a high performing high impact sound absorbing wood wool system, concept with excellent eco credentials which store heat from the ambient air.

Absorb-R ToughSound are panels made up of recycled natural wood fibres, cement and water. The panel specially designed for the Next Generation McDonald’s Restaurants, are extremely durable making them ideally suited to where a high-impact acoustic solution is required.

Absorb-R ToughSound can be used on ceilings and walls in areas where busy footfall and resistance to impact is commonplace. Their hard wearing, tough,  designs makes them ideally suited for use in areas where reverberant noise levels are an issue and where that quirky design edge is required.

“Going forward, all next generation restaurants will meet this standard. And as we refurbish our existing restaurants, we will aim to bring them up to a UK industry net zero standard for operation, keeping us on track to meet our ambition to reach net zero emissions in restaurants and offices by 2030”.
