Specifiers and architects seeking to ensure the mechanical equipment noise does not exceed the ceiling system’s ability to attenuate it can use a straightforward method defined in the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) Standard 885 (2008), Procedure for Estimating Occupied Space Sound Levels in the Application of Air Terminals and Air Outlets.
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.
Wood ceilings can not only provide inviting, eye-catching aesthetics, but also effective acoustical control, making them a versatile and functional design element. To obtain the acoustic benefits, the panels must be perforated and backed with a sound-absorbing material.
Standards now require high-performance sound absorption overhead in many building types. Understanding the acoustic requirements within the building standards and translating those correctly into a project’s written specification is only the first step. One should also understand other potential impacts on the building design to ensure the facility sounds good overall when completed.
