Ceiling acoustics

Pitch-perfect design for balanced acoustics

There's a lot more to ceiling acoustics than sound absorption. Here at Zentia, we take a more balanced approach.

The Class A fallacy

The Class A fallacy

A ceiling tile might be rated Class A for sound absorption, but that doesn't mean it's a better product, and it doesn't mean it's right for your project.

Sound attenuation

Sound attenuation

Sound attenuation is just as important as sound absorption. A ceiling solution that offers good sound attenuation lets noise pass through the ceiling.

Design for privacy

Design for privacy

Letting sound pass through a ceiling improves privacy between adjacent spaces - perfect for a suite of offices or a boardroom.

Design for silence

Design for silence

A ceiling solution with good sound absorption is just right when you need to create peaceful and quiet open plan spaces.

Creating community

Creating community

Choose a ceiling solution with good sound absorption and attenuation properties to create lively spaces that inspire collaboration.

Creative ceiling design

Planks, islands, squares

Work with our Specification Team to design statement ceilings that make an impact without compromising on technical performance, whether your priority is acoustics, fire safety, hygiene, or more.
