Metals do not only provide resilience, beauty, and acoustical performance, but gains in paint technology make for an unlimited resilient pallet for the design and viewing community. From a functional linear ceiling system to wall panel options, a building’s interior can benefit from the beauty and durability of metal.
Materials such as tile and sheet goods are typical flooring options, but for many projects, high-performance coatings are a capable and often-desired alternative. Selecting the right coatings and specifying the appropriate system can be more difficult than picking out a type of tile or vinyl.
Results from a recent study on sound transmission between rooms show that while the effects of ceiling panel type on absorption performance, and thus room acoustics, is substantial, the material type and weight of the ceiling panels do not affect the overall isolation performance of the floor-ceiling assembly.
