In this latest episode of If Walls Could Talk, W&C Editor John Wyatt speaks with Sean Browne, Manager, Codes and Standards, at Armstrong World Industries on acoustics. Browne further discusses soundproofing and acoustics.
In this second part, we discuss:
- What makes a “high performance” acoustical ceiling?
- Why is it important to install the ceiling that was specified for a given space versus trading it out to a potentially lower cost solution?
- How do high performance acoustical ceiling tiles that absorb and block sound save you time and labor versus finishing walls to the deck or adding plenum insulation?
- Why does sound blocking (CAC) performance of a ceiling system matter?
