Acoustic Ceilings Offered at Altispace
A commercial structure is incomplete without a good roof. A roof is one of the most visible aspects and essential part of a building, protecting it from the elements such as wind, extreme heat or cold, sunlight, snow, and rain.
Aside from providing safety, the underside of the roof is where building occupants can demonstrate their aesthetic sense by creating eye-catching ceilings with decorative ceiling panels.
This webpage will provide you with the best information regarding acoustic ceilings and their application areas.
What is an Acoustic Ceiling or False ceiling?
Typically, the term suspended ceiling or Acoustic ceiling refers to a secondary ceiling hung below the structural ceiling to treat room acoustics while being visually appealing. Suspended ceilings have the added benefit of concealing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing installations while allowing some access to these utilities.
Today, an interior design that does not consider acoustics is rare, especially in commercial projects. Ceilings, unlike walls, do not reflect sound directly to our ears. It is technically an oblique surface to hear. However, acoustic ceiling systems have several advantages regarding sound control, particularly in commercial buildings.
How Do Suspended Acoustic Ceilings Affect Sound Performance?
Suspended Acoustic ceilings are installed for one or a combination of acoustic purposes:
Sound absorption: Wave energy occurs when an absorbing material encounters sound; part of the energy is transformed into heat and transmitted through the material.
Sound reflection: Wave energy bounces back when it strikes a material; part of the energy bounces back directly and indirectly as reverberation.
Sound diffusion: Wave energy bounces back evenly in a room. Space reverberation times are the same in a perfectly diffusive sound at any listening position.
What Type of Material is used for Acoustic Ceilings?
The zodiac of acoustic ceiling products helps to split the topic into three considerations: Materials, shapes and colours/textures. The materials used for suspended acoustic ceilings fall into five prime groups:
- Mineral Fiber
- Specialty materials
You can think of acoustical ceiling materials as consisting of two parts: a “face” (visual architectural surface) and a “body” (sound-absorbing materials).
Application Areas of Acoustic Ceilings
Acoustic ceiling tiles can also be installed in many different types of commercial buildings, including:
- Grocery stores
Significant Advantages of Installing an Acoustic Ceiling in your Commercial Space
The core advantages of good acoustics in commercial spaces are endless, ranging from comfort to reducing stress levels and enhancing productivity. Installing acoustic ceiling tiles in buildings can significantly help reduce noise. They can absorb sound and reduce echoes while preventing sound from travelling to nearby spaces.
Therefore, it is no wonder that acoustic ceiling design plays a massive role in modern-day’s construction. Here are the top 5 benefits:
An acoustic ceiling makes a significant impact
Acoustic ceilings that absorb sound help manage noise levels in a commercial space and are the best solution. While acoustic walls and decorative materials are essential tools for room acoustics, they can be easily blocked by furniture or other interior decorations, reducing sound absorption.
An acoustic ceiling that spans a room has a significant impact on any room. The design possibilities are endless, from perforated plasterboard ceilings to raft ceilings, with materials ranging from plasterboard, metal, wood, and even textiles such as felt.
Excellent design options are available
Acoustic ceilings used to be synonymous with low-cost mineral fibre tiles. Today’s acoustic ceilings frequently include stunning design elements with visual and auditory impact. They are made of plasterboard, metal, or wood and look stunning when appropriately designed.
Good acoustics reduce stress
With numerous studies and increased awareness of the noise-induced health impact, it should be no surprise that good room acoustics can significantly reduce stress levels.
Architects and designers are well aware of this, and installing high-performance, sound-absorbing ceilings reduces stress, improves sleep, and even increases workplace employee satisfaction.
This not only improves general well-being, but it also improves concentration and receptivity and promotes efficiency and health.
Acoustic ceilings are easy to install
Acoustic ceilings are typically suspended and should only be installed by a professional due to the high precision required. Modern suspension systems allow experts to install highly efficient acoustic ceilings quickly and easily. Another advantage of suspended ceilings is that ductwork, electrical wires, and other services can be easily concealed.
Along with that, these ceilings are best suited for large-scale commercial properties and concert halls.
Productivity and well-being are increased
Installing a sound-absorbing ceiling reduces the overall sound level in the room significantly. As a result, people are less stressed and disturbed. There is also an increase in concentration. Tasks are completed more efficiently, resulting in productivity and well-being improvement.
Acoustic levels can vary from room to room. For example, ceiling height and room volume significantly impact acoustic groups, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The best acoustic values are obtained by combining various sound absorption methods designed for each room.
