Acoustic Ceiling Baffle
AmCrafts ceiling baffles are mounted mostly between two existing trusses or beams for industrial use. It is possible to mount the ceiling baffles directly to a ceiling, depending on what kind of ceiling you are mounting to.
We recommend to create a slight curve with the ceiling baffles by mounting the two short edges closer together than the finished width of the panel. The curved surface enhances the absorption value. Additionally creating a gap between the ceiling and the baffle top gives the sound additional space to loose it self in.
- Excellent Sound Absorption
- 2ft. Wide panels with 2 grommets on each side
- Creating space between the ceiling and the baffle to provide more space for the sound to absorb in.
- Resists microbial growth
- Three different absorption level fabric available to choose from
- No fiberglass used in this product. No itch or skin irritation
- All used materials have the ASTM E-84 Class A Fire Rating
Mounting to existing trusses or I-beams
Either to the top or bottom of the existing horizontal members. With small c-clamps and a bolt or tie wraps.
Do you have a Sprinkler System? No Problem
Just make sure the sprinkler system can still do its intended purpose by hanging the baffles above the sprinkler head.
How to install on the top flange of the joist to make sure the baffle is not in the water stream of the sprinkler system.
Mounting along the horizontal ceiling side wall seam
By changing to custom dimensions this baffle construction can also be used along a ceiling and wall seams to capture the sound in the upper corners in a room, very effective.
Increased thickness and/or greater surface area render improved sound absorption.
How many ceiling panels are needed?
With a low frequency and high decibel level the goal is to provide, as much as possible soft materials, for the sound to absorb in.
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
Sample of 50% ceiling coverage in a checker board pattern. If less coverage is needed, we increase the spacing.
Some of our customers choose to place a checker board pattern right above the noise source to start with, you can always add more ceiling baffles and expand the pattern in the future.
We also recommend to use in combination with the ceiling baffles our Free hanging, Wall and Corner Baffles.
