Acoustic Ceiling Baffles

Noise Absorbing Ceiling Baffles

If your large building has a ceiling made of corrugated steel, acoustic ceiling baffles might be the sound solution you’ve been looking for. Hard surfaces like metal ceilings reflect sound, adding to the perceived noise level in industrial and manufacturing spaces.

Adding acoustic ceiling baffles between trusses or beams can help trap sound waves before they turn into echoes. Even if you have a fire suppression system or other ceiling-mounted equipment, you can use sound baffles for ceilings. And unlike rigid ceiling panels, AmCraft’s acoustic ceiling baffles are soft and flexible, so you can create an air gap to trap even more noise.

Cover your whole ceiling or just add baffles above noisy equipment. However you use them, AmCraft’s acoustic ceiling baffles are easy to install and help you meet OSHA workplace noise requirements.

Installing Acoustic Ceiling Baffles

In industrial settings, AmCraft acoustic ceiling baffles are commonly mounted between two existing trusses or beams using bolts, c-clamps, or tie wraps. You can also mount them directly to most ceilings. For additional noise absorption, add acoustic corner baffles or hang free-hanging baffles along the horizontal corners where the ceiling meets the walls.

Unlike rigid acoustic panels, our suspended ceiling baffles can be installed with a slight curve. The resulting air cavity enhances the absorption value of each panel by trapping sound waves.

Hanging Acoustic Ceiling Baffles

What if I have a sprinkler system?

Ceiling baffles can be mounted around existing fire suppression systems, lights, and other ceiling-mounted equipment.

Be sure to hang baffles above sprinkler heads to allow for full functionality of fire suppression systems. Your local fire authority is the best source for guidelines on how to install sound baffles without disrupting emergency equipment.

Increased thickness and/or greater surface area render improved sound absorption.

How do I know I have enough sound baffles for ceilings?

In general, the more hard surfaces you can cover with sound-absorbing material, the better. Low frequency and high-decibel sounds are the most difficult to absorb. They are audible over longer distances and tend to be more uncomfortable over time. So spaces with low-frequency equipment will need more ceiling baffles.

What is a low frequency? 250 to 500 Hz is considered low
What is a high decibel level? 110 decibel is considered a very high decibel level

A good starting point is to create a checkerboard pattern of suspended acoustic ceiling baffles directly above the noise source. If needed you can increase the ceiling coverage or add free-hanging baffles and hybrid baffles to absorb even more sound.
