Acoustical Ceiling Tile


Searching for a ceiling tile product that improves speech privacy and reduces noise intrusion through a lay-in ceiling? Does your design require matching existing lay-in tiles?

QuietTile provides a high CAC rating, 49-51, with the finish tile of your choice.

Designer can select from any readily available lay-in ceiling tiles.

Kinetics’ QuietTile uses additional mass and sound damping to produce a composite ceiling tile designed to reduce sound transmission through a lay-in ceiling. QuietTile sound control ceiling is installed in a standard ceiling grid and can be selected to match most acoustical ceiling tiles. Kinetics bonds the composite viscoelastic damping layer and gypsum board to the back of a standard ceiling tile selected by the designer.

QuietTile composite lay-in panel can be designed for a reveal 9/16" (narrow) grid or 15/16" standard grid. Tiles are available in nominal 24" x 24" and 24" x 48" sizes.

Achieve sound control and speech privacy in a lay-in ceiling system where conventional ceiling tiles fail.

For achieving maximum noise reduction it is important that noise "leaks" through the ceiling; supply/return vents and open light fixtures be treated. Ask Kinetics for methods of treatment based on your ceiling design.

Select a suspension system for ceiling panel weights up to 3.5 lbs. per square foot.

Field notching of the backing layer may be required at tie wire locations depending on overall thickness of finish tile selected.
