Acoustic Ceiling Treatments
Zintra Clouds, which are comprised of grid-like “blades” made of the same polyester felt as Zintra Acoustic Panels, are available in four different products, with standard diameters of 43- to 47-inches depending upon the shape (square or circle). The Zintra Acoustic Baffle System is an easy-to-install replacement for a traditional mineral fiber lay-in ceiling system. Available in two standard sizes and two baffle depths, the system comes with a pre-assembled frame ready to affix to the ceiling substrate or hang via ceiling rods and adjustable suspension hangers. Both product ranges are Class A fire rated and provide a noise reduction coefficient of at least 0.9. For more information, visit baresque.com.au.
