The idea of acoustic design ceilings was born out of the need for acoustic conditioning in a room coupled with the wish to take advantage of the opportunity to also improve the room’s aesthetics. It is a choice that has to do with the image that you want to transfer to the user of the room so it is normal to these ceilings in corporate offices, auditoriums, meeting rooms, hotels, etc.
The basic component of acoustic design ceilings are acoustic panels. Depending on the models chosen and how they should be installed, we can find different approaches to acoustic design ceilings. These are some of the options available if you wish to have acoustic design ceilings in your project:
- Depending on the grooving pattern, colours and finishes, some models of acoustic panels feature more creative designs of grooves or perforations (e.g., Spigotec’s Estrella and Cometa models). On other occasions, more classic designs can be used to create more colourful combinations, such as in the interior auditorium of the University of Stratford. You can also take advantage of a wide range of finishes in melamine, natural wood, HPL or Lacquer RAL/NSC offered by most of the Spigotec and Spigoacustic wood acoustic panels.
- Installation on acoustic islands: When acoustic panels are installed in acoustic islands, you get acoustic design ceilings in three dimensions that offer a whole range of creative solutions.
- Custom jobs: If your portfolio includes a supplier of acoustic panels like Spigogroup, which can manufacture custom sizes, you can opt for ingenious proposals, like the curved ceiling in the Fundación Riojana para la Innovación auditorium or acoustic ceilings like the prism-shaped one at the Auditorium of the Saudi Press Agency.
