Acoustical Performance

Total acoustical absorption for a suspended ceiling is calculated by multiplying the exposed surface area by the material NRC while “space absorbers” are directly measured. The installation of MetalWorks Tin extra microperforated panels in a reverberant space can significantly reduce the background noise and reverberation time, enhancing speech intelligibility. This can be extremely useful in high-traffic retail and hospitality spaces.
