When evaluating performance in acoustical drop ceiling products, you’ll want to reference two general ratings: Noise Reduction
Coefficient (NRC) and Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC). NRC tells you how much sound a ceiling panel will absorb, thereby lessening
the noise within a room. CAC rates an acoustical drop ceiling’s efficiency as a barrier to airborne sound transmission – meaning
how much sound travels to adjacent rooms.
The high performance surfaces of acoustical drop ceilings by Armstrong can reduce noise by 55%. If you need even more sound dampening, Classic Fine Textured 2’x2’ ceiling panel reduces sound by 70% for excellent acoustical quality.
To learn about the specific NRC and CAC soundproofing ratings for an Armstrong ceiling tile or panel, check the Retail Ceilings Guide brochure.
You don’t have to sacrifice fashion, either, when installing an acoustical drop ceiling. You will find neutral ceiling designs with a 3-dimensional look that work in any décor. Surface textures range from the look of traditional rough plaster to a fine, light texture that’s subtle and refined.
Acoustical drop ceilings by Armstrong are the perfect solution when both noise reduction and design style are a must.
