Ceilings Affect the Sound Quality of a Room
Acoustic ceiling installation is an important step in the construction process. Potential sound levels must be taken into account as you design the function of a room. Two buzzwords to keep in mind are sound absorption (NRC) and sound blocking (CAC):
NRC is a noise-reduction coefficient that measures how well sound is absorbed. A low-performing ceiling rating would be one that has an NRC rating of less than .50. A high-performing ceiling rating would be .70 or above.
CAC performance rates the ability of a ceiling to act as a barrier to airborne sound transmission. A rating of 25 or lower is considered to be low-performing while a rating of 35 or higher is considered to be high-performing.
This type of ceiling combines the benefits of both NRC and CAC performances to create a ceiling that is flexible enough for today’s workspaces, which is effective in many different industries and environments.
