Bring down the noise

Noise pollution is more than a headache. It destroys privacy, drives away customers, and leaves workers distracted and unproductive.

Sound likes to bounce around a room. It reflects off of any hard surface it can find – windows, floor, furniture – until it finds something to absorb it.

Because the ceiling is the most expansive surface in a room, it's the easiest place to install absorptive materials to bring down the noise levels.

The science of sound

Sound Absorption

measured in

NRC

People/things in the same room
We can solve this kind of noise problem by looking for ceiling tiles with an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient). The NRC value is the % of sound that can be absorbed by that tile.

Sound Blocking

measured in

CAC

People/things in the room next door, above, or below
To combat this kind of noise, look for ceiling tiles with CAC (Ceiling Attenuation Class). The CAC value is the amount of decibels the tile can block from leaving or entering a closed room when installed as a drop ceiling.

With the right acoustical ceiling, you can solve NRC, CAC, or both, and have a space suitable for privacy and concentration, even if the office is buzzing with action.

Frequently asked questions

How are acoustic ceiling tiles rated?

NRC tells you how much sound a ceiling panel will absorb, helping to reduce the noise within a room. CAC rates the ceiling tile's efficiency as a barrier to airborne sound transmission – meaning how much sound travels to adjacent rooms. The higher the rating, the better the ceiling is at noise control.

Our acoustical ceiling tiles are available in many sizes, styles, and colors. Whether you want dark and dim or bright and white, you can have confidence in the performance of your ceiling with control of the sound.

What is an acoustical tile ceiling? 

An acoustical tile ceiling is a suspended or drop ceiling that is designed to absorb sound within a space, helping reduce reverberation time and improve the noise. They also block sound from leaving or entering a space.

Are ceiling tiles good for soundproofing? 

Yes, ceiling tiles are good at soundproofing and sound blocking. They absorb the sound waves and reduce the reverberation time.

What are the benefits of using acoustic ceiling tiles?

Some of the benefits of using acoustic ceiling tiles are an increase in energy efficiency, improved noise control, enhanced room aesthetics, while hiding wires, duct work, and plumbing.

How much are acoustic ceiling tiles?

Armstrong acoustic ceiling tiles cost between $0.97/sq. ft. and $13.09/sq. ft. The cost depends on the amount of sound blocking and soundproofing you would want.

How do you install an acoustic tile ceiling?

For drop ceiling installation, you install the wall molding, attach hanger wire, install main beams and cross tees, then drop in the ceiling tile. For surface mount ceilings, you can either attach the tile directly to the deck above with adhesive or use our EASY UP installation system.
