3 Total Noise Control & Design Flexibility Total Acoustics ceiling panels feature the ideal combination of sound absorption and sound blocking. Sound absorption reduces noise while sound blocking keeps it from traveling into adjacent spaces. Together these attributes help you create quiet spaces. So whether you are trying to reduce noise in concentration or focus spaces, creating collaborative environments, or working to ensure confidentiality, get total noise control and design flexibility with Total Acoustics ceiling panels. NRC +CAC = ABSORB BLOCK

6 MANAGE OFFICE BUZZ Studies show that excessive noise at the office reduces worker effectiveness, raises stress, and lowers employee satisfaction. Today s flexible spaces call for concentration one minute, collaboration the next. In closed plan areas, noise from open areas plus adjacent spaces can negatively affect confidentiality. Today s open plan areas can become tomorrow s closed plan areas making both absorption (NRC) and blocking (CAC) important for future space flexibility. Total Acoustics ceiling panels not only address quiet concentration, energetic collaboration, and speech privacy in today s workplace, but everything in between. places to work 5 Ultima 24" x 48" Tegular panels with Suprafine 9/16" suspension system. Running bond pattern is achieved by using XTAC clip.
