When popular Philadelphia rock radio station WMMR 93.3 FM wanted to build an additional studio near their control room for the use of its popular morning program, the Preston & Steve Show, they looked to CertainTeed products to fulfill their needs. The show regularly features live, on air musical performances so close attention was paid to acoustics when designing the studio. In addition to providing a rich acoustical response the station needed to acoustically isolate the studio so as not to disturb its sister stations in the surrounding offices.
To satisfy this unique need, the design incorporated about 1,700 square feet of CertainTeed Ceiling’s Adagio ceiling panels. A 2-inch thick composite fiberglass/mineral fiber ceiling panel, Adagio offers a unique acoustical combination of a high Ceiling Attenuation Class of 40 and a Noise Reduction Coefficient of .95. The result provided superior sound absorption and containment in one ceiling tile and helped create a top-notch acoustical environment for the new studio.
