Acoustic Ceiling Panels Enhance Your Amenity Package
- Aug 21, 2012
Valley Forge, Pa.—As the multifamily industry continues to redefine what complete amenity package means, it is important to consider the function of a ceiling in different settings. While sound proofing is definitely a must inside units, there are certain applications where it makes sense to provide an environment with enhanced acoustics. Media and screening rooms, business centers, lobbies, clubhouses and demonstration kitchens could all benefit from a bolstered environmental acoustics.
CertainTeed Corporation has responded to the growing interest from architects and the design community for seamless wall-to-ceiling surface designs with the new family of Gyptone BIG Large Format Perforated Acoustic Panels. The line includes four products, each with a distinct pattern of perforations and acoustic backing tissue. Quattro 41 features a square perforation pattern, while Line 6 features line perforations. Sixto 63 and Sixto 65 each feature hexagonal patterns.
All of these panels are made with 80 percent post-consumer and 5-percent pre-consumer recycled content and can be fully recycled into the manufacturing of new gypsum products. The panels are suitable for direct or suspended screw mounting and can be easily painted with a short-nap roller to coordinate with your community’s particular design scheme. CertainTeed also offers a complete grid system and complementary Gyptone ceiling tiles for each BIG pattern, which provides a clean, monolithic transition between vertical and horizontal room surfaces.
