What is an acoustic ceiling?

Acoustic ceiling systems help ensure a space is acoustically fit for purpose.

Some spaces, like classrooms, theatres, and auditoriums require that sound be amplified in a specific way, while noise carrying from other areas of the space is minimised. Areas such as hotel lobbies, restaurants, retail outlets, and hospitals, need noise to be minimised, scattered, or absorbed to maintain a quiet ambience, privacy, and comfort. Other spaces need noise from outside to be blocked altogether.

Whether required for sound amplification, absorption, or blocking, the right selection of ceiling material and its architectural design is imperative and makes a remarkable difference to the acoustical properties of the space.

Ensuring the correct acoustics in a large, open space can be challenging. Sound bounces off surfaces, becoming magnified, and high noise levels trigger stress responses in many people, especially when that sound is uncontrolled or prolonged. From noise mitigation and sound dampening in learning and working environments and public spaces like hospitals and hotel lobbies to appropriate sound amplification in theatres and auditoriums, getting the balance right is essential. The right ceiling can make all the difference.

Choosing the correct ceiling material and design delivers several acoustic benefits:

  • Controls desirable sound (e.g. for theatres or classrooms)
  • Reverberation control
  • Minimises occupational noise
  • Absorbs ambient sound
  • Blocks noise from above (e.g., hotels, apartment buildings)
  • Enables integrations including for light installations, ventilation, fire safety, etc
