Perforation Guide

Ceilings Plus has created actual size perforation patterns to be used as a guide for aesthetic selection and performance criteria. The "Perforation Selector Guide" can be ordered <<here>>.
Noise reduction may be achieved by adding acoustical absorbing material. Your acoustical consultant may make specific recommendations. Consult Ceilings Plus for available options.

Acoustical Absorption
Sound Absorbing Materials


Standard
• CP non-woven acoustical liner laminated to panel (0.008"/.2mm thick)
• Average NRC .75
• Class A Status, ASTM E84
• Colors: Black, Dove Gray, White and Natural

Requires minimum 6-7" deep plenum space to achieve results. Not recommended as sole acoustical backing for wall panels.

White fabric backing is not recommended with certain high percentage open perforation patterns. Contact factory for details.

Ceilings Plus has acoustically tested a variety of the perforation patterns offered. ASTM method 423-99A. Reports may be available upon request for professionals. The average NRC is .75 for Ceilings Plus perforation patterns 5% and greater, using non-woven backing.

Optional Fiberglass or Ultra-Sorb Reconstituted Cotton
If higher levels of absorption are desired other substances may be supplied in lieu of, or in addition to, CP non-woven acoustical liner. Some of the approximate ranges of NRC levels are listed below. Consult factory for specific data.

• CP non-woven acoustical liner, .75 NRC
• 1" THK, 1.5# Fiberglass or Ultra-Sorb, .80 NRC
• 1.5" THK, 1.5# Fiberglass or Ultra-Sorb, .85 NRC
• 2" THK, 3# Fiberglass or Ultra-Sorb, .95 NRC
