Are you facing difficulties regarding noise in your office, business or home? Are you considering an office refurbishment? Recent studies have shown that the level of noise in many offices tends to reduce productivity, create stress leading to health problems. So what can you do to avoid the noisy environment in your officespace? A great solution to this annoying problem whether it is at work or home is to improve the sound environment by installing suspended ceiling to create better acoustics for your workplace or home.
What is a Suspended Ceiling?
Also known as, a lay-in ceiling it is installed just below the actual ceiling. This offers significant room for mechanicals such as HVAC ductwork, lighting, computer and communication wiring, hardware as well as a variety of same items. In certain buildings in Yorkshire, suspended ceilings are an obvious sight because of the grid structure shown at the edge of the tiles. The grid is usually suspended to support the tiles in position. Many people mistake it to be a modern invention whereas its history goes all the way back to the 14th century when Japan used it for aesthetic reasons and in the 16th century where England used to it improve acoustic in London’s Blackfriers Theatre.
How Does Do Suspended Ceiling Help Improve Acoustics?
You can include acoustic panels in your suspended ceiling to help absorb and deflect sound eventually reducing the background noise in your home, office or workshop. These acoustic panels usually have holes or rough texture, which helps to create a sound-absorbing surface, accompanied with air pockets and offsets that aid to cut down sound transmission further. If your suspended ceiling doesn’t have sound-absorbing tiles you don’t need to worry because there are several acoustical products to consider when trying to reduce the impact of noise in your home or officespace.
Is My Structure a Good Candidate for a Suspended Ceiling?
Suspended ceilings are virtually suitable for any framing structure however certain modifications might be required judging that not every office is as same as the other is. As long as there is sufficient structure above the ceiling to support the lightweight tiles and anchor the grid to, a suspended ceiling will work just fine. Suspended ceilings are ideal for rooms that have high ceilings and small confined spaces giving them a dark and eerie ambience. Suspended ceilings will not only make the room look better but will also hide any old, untidy ceiling with a new, lightweight structure.
