Education

Create Better Learning Environments

Having an education that will last a lifetime is down to outstanding, inspirational teachers that deliver learning with knowledge and passion – but these tutors need the right spaces in which to do this.

Schools, colleges and universities are complex ecosystems, and the buildings that house them need to take this into account. They encompass everything from focussed classrooms, quiet study areas to sweeping auditoria and lecture theatres, sound studios and common rooms.

Each space has its own requirements and intricacies – but all need to optimise the learning experience.

Healthcare

Create Healing Environments

These hectic and multi-functional spaces require a ceiling that’s very versatile. Key ceiling criteria in an emergency room includes water-resistant surfaces that are easy to clean to prevent infection, sound absorption and blocking to control unwanted sound, and light reflectance.

Re-purposing existing spaces for testing and isolation to address patient needs is a current need. The ability to clean these spaces to protect healthcare workers and patients is more important than ever before in the “new normal” era. Key ceiling system criteria in these spaces call for scrubbable, water-resistant surfaces that are easy to clean. Smooth, scrubbable ceiling panels where patients are being treated. Porous acoustical ceiling panels should be replaced with nonporous ceiling panels.

Clean Room Suspension Systems should be considered for the best performance in any healthcare space. Existing Suspension systems can be retrofitted with gasketing in areas needing a negative pressure environment.

  • Anti-microbial and hygiene properties
  • Cleanablity, including washing with disinfectants
  • Clean Room performance
  • Material durability
  • Accessibility 
  • Ease of replacement

Office

Create Productive Offices

In open plan, focus, or collaborative spaces, the main function of the ceiling is to absorb sound that would normally bounce off the ceiling into a nearby space or cubicle and block sound from mechanicals in the plenum.

Total Acoustics office ceiling tiles, with the ideal combination of sound absorption and sound blocking, are flexible to provide the right balance, even when employees are concentrating one minute, and collaborating the next. In open plenum environments, where noise control can be a significantly greater challenge, consider strategically placed acoustical clouds and canopies to control sound.

Design Considerations

  • Sound absorption and blocking performance (Total Acoustics NRC + CAC) for concentration, reduced noise and maximum speech privacy
  • Visual stimulation
  •  Floating Ceiling options
  • Biophillic properties
  • Material durability
  • Anti-microbrial properties
  • Accessibility 
  • Ease of replacement

Our range of ceiling products can help to create a positive retail experience for both staff and valued customers.

From hub that connects multiple retail areas, to supermarkets to small boutique stores, our ceiling products can help to portray the image that retailers want to create – acoustically.

Ask us how our ceilings help to overcome challenges such as cleanabilty in food courts and food prep areas or comfortable acoustics in high ceiling areas. Mix and match materials in tiles, canopies, clouds and baffles to create your own, uniuqe design. 

Design Considerations

  • Sound absorption for a comfortable environment
  • Floating Ceiling options
  •  Wide choice of materials
  • Visual stimulation
  • Biophillic properties
  • Material durability

Hospitality

Create Enjoyable Experiences

Acoustic comfort is an integral part of designing entertainment and retail venues. Here, you’ll want to cater to your design vision without detriment to guest comfort, considering noise control and durability.

Ceilings for hospitality and leisure with high acoustic performance give you the right balance of sound absorption and reflection to provide the highest quality of sound, plus the colour options to complement your design.

Transportation

enhance Travel Experiences

Treat travelers with your unique design vision, considering noise control to create a quiet retreat away from transportation hub hustle and bustle. From a 15-minute wait to a 3-hour layover, passengers use gate waiting areas to pass the time in many ways. Eat, sleep, work or play – these spaces need to provide an oasis for passenger comfort.

Create a welcoming, quiet area away from the hectic pace of the concourse and corridors with airport ceilings designed for durability and sound control. Metal ceilings are available in a variety of standard and custom perforations to get the calming atmosphere passengers want and the durability needed for the space.
