Finding a beautiful acoustic ceiling, for less
We all understand the importance of good acoustics in a building, but how do you achieve it without raising your budget or ruining your aesthetic?
The most common option is just to leave out acoustics all together. But this usually leaves you installing corrective measures after the building is occupied, which is often more expensive, less acoustically effective and disruptive to your original design aesthetic.
The other option is to choose a standardised suspension grid ceiling solution. This is a great way to achieve high quality acoustics at an affordable price point, but many architects and designers feel it comes at the cost of aesthetic appeal.
Are all suspension grid ceilings ugly?
Suspension grid ceilings have a reputation for being unattractive. The problem stems from the surface finish that is traditionally used in these type of ceilings. In the wrong light, the tend to seem beige or grey, rather than a nice crisp white, which can completely ruin the intended aesthetic.
For this reason, many architects and designers prefer to suggest solutions where the grid is concealed. This certainly looks better, but it doesn’t look better on your budget sheet.
That’s why Rockfon developed the Matt White 11 Grid. It has all the acoustic and cost advantages of a suspension grid ceiling, with a beautiful aesthetic that appears truly white.
Matt White 11: The future of suspension ceilings
If you would like the high-end effect of a bright and smooth white ceiling, but high-end designs are way out of your budget, the Matt White 11 grid is the perfect choice.
- The Matt White 11 is our whitest and most matt grid ceiling, because it has a gloss unit of 2 (at both a 60° and 85° angle) combined with a L value of 93.
- Our unique textured surface is cleverly designed to diffuse light, reducing the irritating reflections found on traditional metal grids.
- The unique surface design of the Matt White 11 grid makes it nearly impossible to differentiate between the suspension grid and the white tiles, giving a beautiful clean aesthetic.
The Matt White 11 makes it possible to install a quality acoustic ceiling with an elegant, immaculate look — all using a cost-effective standardised system. It is an excellent way to strike a balance between budget, comfort and style, which is an important consideration for any building design.
