CLOUD CEILINGS: FANTASTICALLY FRAMELESS

The rise of open-space design in modern offices, hotels, restaurants, and more presents myriad creative opportunities. Everything from the clever reuse of factories to the benefits of daylight have contributed to the popularity of open plenums, exposed stuctures, and the use of glass, wood, metal, polished concrete, or other industrial-inspired materials. But with hard, acoustically reflective surfaces like these, and no partitions to offer sound absorption and noise reduction, open-space design has also created a unique set of acoustical challenges.

Suspended ceilings may be the most effective solution when it comes to acoustics, but they're not always structurally possible. In adaptive reuse or renovation situations, acoustics solutions often have to accommodate existing HVAC ductwork, plumbing, and fire protection systems. Beyond that, in some cases they're simply not part of the aesthetic preferences. 

Enter acoustic ceiling clouds - also known as pods and canopies - floating acoustical panels that are equal parts visually stunning and highly sound absorbent. Suspended by aircraft cable or brackets, CertainTeed Architectural clouds provide the perfect alternative for these types of large, open spaces. They create sculptural ceiling structures that transform open space into stunning works of art, while adding acoustical performance that softens noise levels of characteristically loud environments like offices, schools, and restaurants. 

And with so many pod shapes, sizes, and color options in our collection, the only limit to your creativity is your imagination.

A DESIGN-FORWARD OPEN SPACE SOLUTIONS

CertainTeed Architectural clouds, pods, and canopies are available in virtually any material desired, as well as dozens of color, shape, and size options to give designers hundreds of possibilities. And that's just the product themselves. Consider positioning, angles, stacking, and layering, and the creative opportunity is wide open. 

With thier exceptional sound absorption, canopies can be used on their own or in concert with traditional suspended ceilings to enchance noice control in areas where a lot of people are speaking at the same time - such as a call center, reception area, or food court. Adding lowered clouds directly above specific tables or desks in isolated work areas of open spaces dramatically reduces the overall noise level and sound propagation, encouraging focus.

Position then horizontally or vertically. Hang them from aircraft cables or brackets. Stack them, stagger them, and angle them for entirely unique, sculptural ceiling design aesthetics. These ceiling products offer the ultimate in creative versatility and acoustic capability. 

FIBERGLASS CLOUDS 

PLAYFUL WITH A PURPOSE

With a lightweight and resilient high-density construction, our fiberglass clouds offer playful colors and geometries. They are available in vibrant yellows and oranges or subtle earth tones, and shapes range from familiar rectangles and squares to boundary-pushing circles, ovals, triangles, trapezoids, and more. Our fiberglass products are easy to handle and also robust enough to prevent sagging without requiring extra support. Plus, 360-degree sound absorption and clean finish on all sides means, hung horizontally or vertically, they look good and perform from any angles.

FELT CLOUDS

FOR ADDED TEXTURE & WARMTH 

Our felt collection combines all the design benefits of fiberglass clouds with the added textural warmth of a time-tested textile. The unique texture and soft appearance of felt has made it an aesthetically appealing material for clothing, furniture, and interior finishes for thousands of years. And as a material for acoustic ceiling clouds, it offers even more appeal to the senses, with additional sound absorption and an impressive color palette with timeless neutrals and brilliant hues.
