Acoustical ceiling tiles

First of all you need to go to a ceiling tile showroom. Now there are more than 30 types of tiles with different textures, from wood grain, polished brass, chrome, to a simple black finish.

The sound properties of the tiles depend on their thickness, density, and volume of the individual panels.

These panels are all made from spun mineral wool fiber which is bound together with starch. The greater amount of fibers in the panel the more sound it can absorb.

If you have noticed the noticed the holes, crevices, and fissures in these tiles, then you should know that these are part of them. These cracks help control the sound. Some acoustical tiles can offer up to an 80 percent noise reduction coefficient, but most of them offer 50-60 percent.

If you do not like the traditional metal grid systems you can purchase interlocking tiles that staple to wood furring strips.

Be very careful when purchasing tiles because not all of them have acoustical properties.

Not all tiles are washable, so read the instructions before trying to clean them. Older tiles are impossible to clean so it’s better to paint them, but with a thin layer, not to interfere with the deadening of the sound.
