Acoustical Ceiling Baffles

Designed for simple, fast, cost efficient installation in large open areas where good sound absorption is desired.

Noise Absorption Baffles

A proven and effective soft absorber to reduce reverberation and ambient noise levels - for use in overhead and upper wall areas. Simple and economical to install and maintain.

The standard baffle consists of a loosely wrapped soft white 2 mil film enclosing a 1.5 lb./cu .ft. flexible glass fiber core. The ends are welded and sealed to exclude dirt and moisture. Each baffle is fitted with three plated grommets and supplied with three 16g galvanized steel wire hooks. The entire unit is lightweight, washable and light reflective.


System Advantages

Our baffles are non-invasive of the work area. easily installed using a hung onto a cable stretched between walls, columns or truss areas. Stand-off attachment application

Baffles are effective control the sound field by lowering the reverberation time and accelerating the decay of multiple reflective sound paths. This reduces incoherent noise that interferes with safe communication in the working environment. Baffle systems greatly improve the comfort within the work place by reducing stress.

Baffles are easily moved or repositioned to accommodate equipment and space changes in the working area: may be quickly taken down and re-installed for cleaning or other maintenance. The patterns and spacing are readily modified to allow for sprinkler and lighting requirement restrictions.

Special sizes and food grade covers such as tedlar are available custom fabricated for use in areas requiring resistance to bacteria and fungal growth e.g. Food processing operations, breweries, and animal shelters.

From the two original 1/2" extrusions and profiles, ACOUSTI-TRAC™ has evolved to include 4 profiles in both 1/2" thick and 1" deep fire rated PVC extrusions.

The ACOUSTI-TRAC™ extrusion forms the frame or outside edge of the desired panel. Corners are mitered and joints are butted together to create the framework. Within this framework, the Designer can specify numerous types of absorptive or reflective acoustic backings or tackable/acoustic materials, that correspond to the thickness of the PVC extrusions. Even magnetic surfaces have been specified to be installed within the ACOUSTI-TRAC™ PVC framework. Over the PVC framework and the specified acoustic/tackable material is the specified fabric, which is stretched taut while being inserted into the jaw and storage channel of the ACOUSTI-TRAC™ PVC extrusion. The PVC framework is neatly concealed, showing only the specified fabric finish to the panel. Combining the ACOUSTI-TRAC™ PVC extrusion with an acoustic/tackable core and a specified fabric completes the three components of the ACOUSTI-TRAC™ system. Brilliant & Simple! Simply Brilliant!

The ACOUSTI-TRAC™system is uniquely flexible and designed to accommodate any type of upholstered, acoustic, reflective or tackable core material. Unless specified otherwise, products listed below are standard acoustic cores:

  • Whispertone Wallboard (25mm)
    Rigid fiberglass board good for tackable and/or acoustic wall applications. Impact resilient.
  • Mineral ceiling tile (13mm)
    Rigid High Density perforated mineral fiber board, ideal for tackable and/or acoustic wall panel applications. High impact resistance.
  • 4.5# F.G.B. (25mm, 37mm, 50mm)
    Semi-rigid fiberglass acoustic board. Does not deteriorate with impact. Not suitable for tackboards.
  • 6# F.G.B. (25mm, 37mm, 50mm)
    High density fibreglass board used in special acoustic applications and where abuse is a consideration. Moderately tackable.

N.R.C. Rating: Based on sound absorption coefficients obtained by the American Society of Testing and Materials procedure C-423 (ASTM C-423). The N.R.C. is a simple average of sound absorption coefficients for the frequencies 250, 500, 1000 & 2000 Hz; the important ranges for speech.


Tectum Panels

Tectum Acoustic Panels are an ideal choice where walls and ceilings are subject to abuse and noise is a problem.

Tectum Acoustic Panels combine a unique textured appearance with unusual durability. Features include excellent sound absorption, lightweight structural strength and Class A/1 flame spread rating. The use of Tectum is very cost effective for a multitude of interior applications.

Tectum Panels are made of aspen wood fibers, bonded with an exclusive hydraulic cement binder. Few, if any other acoustical products can take the repeated abuse that Tectum panels can and still retain their good looks and structural integrity.

Tectum Acoustic Panels are easy to install on walls with conventional wood or drywall tools. Ceiling installations use standard grid suspension components. The natural or factory painted white panels provide a decorative interior finish. They can be field painted to match colour schemes without losing acoustical efficiency.


  • Reduces noise - NRC up to 1.00.
  • Class A/1 Flame Spread Rating.

Food Grade & Medical Baffles

Clean rooms require washable, cleanable, dust and fiber free supply materials. Clean rooms usually are designed with hard and reflective floor and wall treatments, which create a high level of reverberation or echo leading to poor speech intelligetability within the clean room. There are several acoustical products and supplies that can be used in clean room design to reduce noise from equipment to create a better working environment. We offer clean room wall panels, baffles and ceiling tiles that can be used with your clean room design to help control noise and vibrations.
