New Ceiling System Offers Sound Absorption and Sound Blocking in One Panel

ACOUSTIBuilt Seamless Acoustical Ceilings, recently introduced by Armstrong Ceiling Solutions, is a novel ceiling system that offers the look of drywall yet performs similar to an acoustical ceiling.

The Finished ACOUSTIBuilt panels provide a non-directional, smooth, monolithic visual to satisfy the requirements of owners, designers, and architects, who prefer the unified appearance of a drywall ceiling and, at the same time, need an effective acoustical performance in a space.

Total Acoustics Performance

Part of the Armstrong® Total Acoustics® portfolio, the innovative ceiling provides the perfect combination of sound blocking and sound absorption in a single panel. A Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of around 0.70 can be achieved by the installed system, which means the system can absorb up to 70% of the sound that hits it.

The system also has a very high Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC) up to 48, signifying its potential to guarantee speech privacy by eliminating sound from entering neighboring spaces.

Part of the Armstrong Ceilings Sustain® portfolio, the ACOUSTIBuilt ceiling systems fulfill the most rigorous sustainability compliance standards in the industry today, such as LEED® v4, the WELL Building Standard™, and Living Building Challenge℠.

Quick and Easy Panel Installation

Compared to acoustical plaster, the ACOUSTIBuilt ceiling systems can be installed more easily and also at a lower cost. The Armstrong Drywall Grid can be used to install panels quickly and easily. Finishing techniques are comparable to those of conventional drywall ceilings.

The ACOUSTIBuilt ceiling systems can be installed with a majority of drywall compatible light diffusers or fixtures, including those from Price Industries, USAI Lighting, Axis Lighting, and XAL—all partners of Armstrong Ceiling Solutions.

Fixtures available from Armstrong partners are particularly designed for fit and finish with Armstrong’s state-of-the-art ceiling systems. All diffuser and lighting fixtures are designed to accommodate ceiling panels with 7/8” thickness.
