Mineral fibre is a material associated with the reduction of echo and reverberation in a range of sound-related spaces that include offices, call centres and music studios. With modern architecture making use of more open plan designs than ever before, there is an undeniable need for adequate acoustic properties within public environments that demand both functionality and aesthetic.
Other than advanced acoustic characteristics, a mineral fibre ceiling has a long list of benefits. It provides premium quality energy efficiency, reflecting daylight in combination with electrical illumination to create the perfect amount of light. This not only saves electricity but creates a space that stimulates productivity with a visually optimised working environment. It is also a renewable material that can be reused at the end of its lifespan, serving as an active participant in the conservation of natural resources.
Armstrong’s mineral fibre ceiling tiles are manufactured from a combination of naturally occurring materials that are environmentally friendly. These materials are processed and recycled in different proportions that depend on the type of tile, whether it be wool, clay, perlite, cellulose or starch. The chosen materials are mixed together with a water-based process before using heat to let it set and cure to the desired specification. The next step is to finish the settled mixture off with a water-based paint and/or laminated scrim to create an aesthetic facing surface.
Internal Performance Testing
ACS carries out a complete range of acoustic testing at our very own Acoustic Lab, designed to guarantee the performance of acoustic metal ceilings and tiles, together with a variety of panels and building materials. We do this to speed up the entire process, from the date of order to a fully-fledged installation at the hands of our skilled staff. All the products that we manufacture and stock (Armstrong included) feature specification listings that need to be adhered to and ensured before they leave our facility. This list includes Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC), Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC) and Articulation Class (AC).
