Benefits of Acoustic Ceilings and Acoustic Tile


Acoustic tile is very sound absorbent, taking the harshness out of a hard ceiling. In addition to reducing echo and improving sound quality in a room, an acoustic ceiling can also reduce noise that permeates from one story of a building to another. Because acoustic tile hangs from the ceiling, it is handy for hiding pipes, wires, and other unsightly necessities while allowing easy access for repairs or remodeling. This makes acoustic ceilings a popular choice for commercial buildings. Highly light reflective, acoustic tiles let more available light reflect back into the room, and save money in utility costs. The panels come in different levels of humidity resistance, reflectivity, and fire resistance. Acoustic ceilings are flexible and can be installed in most rooms. To hang acoustic tiles, a grid of extruded metal is hung by wire loops from the true ceiling with a panel resting in each rectangle. Fluorescent lighting easily drops into any square since the entire lighting fixture is a single unit. If dust, smoke or soil should mar the finish, the panels are easily cleaned. They are impact resistant and, if they are damaged, can be replaced easily in a matter of minutes.

We are currently working on the Nano-Fab X Building at the College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering – University at Albany. We are on-site until approximately mid-June installing Metal Stud Framing, Gypsum Shaft Wall partitions, and Acoustical & specialty Ceilings.

 

The Benefits of Steel Framing in Commercial Structures

  • Environmentally Friendly GREEN Building Product.
  • Steel Framing members contain on avg. 67% recycled steel.
  • High Strength to Weight Ratio allowing for increased Design Flexibility.
  • Sustainable Engineered Building Material.
  • Superior Engineering capabilities for Earthquake and Hurricane.
  • Superior and Consistent Quality resulting from precise Roll Forming Manufacturing.
  • Steel Framing can be manufactured to exact lengths to greatly reduce labor costs and material cost and waste.
  • Steel Framing is non-combustible and will not add fuel to a fire.
    Resistant to Termites and other insects.
  • Economical Material Costs as compared to Hot Rolled Steel and Masonry.
  • Steel framing has service holes that provide easy installation of plumbing and electrical services.
  • Benefits of Healthier & Safer Living and the Highest Quality Structure.
  • Steel framing will not twist or split like drying wood framing does causing drywall cracks and nail pops.
