Acoustic ceiling and wall solutions

The sound around us has a profound effect on our daily lives

Sounds influence our concentration, happiness and, most importantly, our health. An acoustically sound environment can help inspire, engage and calm us. CertainTeed Ceilings is dedicated to helping you find the acoustic solutions you need to create environments where people thrive, achieving their greatest potential. No one else is better equipped than CertainTeed to deliver the acoustics, functional performance and aesthetics that meet your projects’ unique requirements at any budget.


You’re picturing a clean, smooth ceiling. Pick a panel to save the budget and you’ll compromise acoustics. Pick the best acoustic panel and you’ll blow the budget. There’s another option: Targeted Acoustics. Put high-performance acoustic panels where you need them and more economic ceiling tiles where you don’t – all while keeping that clean, smooth visual across the space.


High ceilings and exposed structures look amazing. Add trendy hard surface floors and plenty of glass and the look gets even better – but the noise gets a lot worse. Solve the acoustic challenges of open spaces with creative alternatives to traditional suspended ceilings.



In recent years, the design and construction community has learned that sound is far more critical than realized in the past. In fact, it’s so critical, that acoustic comfort is a key element of Indoor Environmental Quality under LEED v4.

But how do you define a comfortable acoustic environment? It depends on the environment. Proper acoustics means sounds are controlled to ensure a space suits the way it is commonly used – whether that be for concentration, collaboration or rest. Fortunately, you don’t have to decipher the complexities of acoustic performance on your own. CertainTeed Ceilings has the knowledge, expertise and resources to make sure you have the right blend of products to manage the sound in your space.




The right acoustic features for your space

The most widely used measure of acoustic performance is the Noise Reduction Coefficient or NRC, which indicates sound absorption. Higher NRC values translate to quieter spaces with less reverberation and less distracting background noise from within the room.

The ability of a ceiling to block sound transfer to adjacent spaces is expressed by the Ceiling Attenuation Class or CAC. High CAC values translate to improved speech privacy.

Absorbing sound so the room remains quiet while blocking sound from interfering with adjacent spaces is a careful balancing act. Materials that block sound also tend to reflect it back into a space. To keep noise down and prevent disruption in adjacent spaces, maximize both NRC and CAC.
