MetalWorks Tin is a line of ceiling panels that are extra microperforated for acoustical performance. The perforations measure only seven-tenths of a millimeter in diameter, which makes them nearly invisible. Yet, when backed with a fiberglass infill, the perforations allow the ceiling panels to achieve a Noise Reduction Coefficient of 0.85, meaning they absorb 85 percent of the sound that strikes them. Available in both 2-feet-by-2-feet lay-in and tegular panels and 2-feet-by-4-feet nail-up panels, the ceilings can be installed in either 9/16- or 15/16-inch suspension systems in coordinating colors. The new additions are the only tegular panels in the industry designed for use in narrow 9/16-inch suspension systems. The combination of the panel’s reveal edge and the grid’s thin profile diminishes the overall visibility of the suspension system.
