In recent years, more attention has been placed on the role that sustainable building products play on occupants’ overall mental and physical wellbeing. To further support that focus through a balance of design and acoustic control, CertainTeed Ceilings has introduced its Decoustics Clean-Air Claro. Engineered to fulfill design challenges, the customizable acoustical panel contributes to overall health and safety standards by helping to deliver better indoor air quality.
Decoustics Clean-Air Claro features the aesthetic of drywall with a stipple textured design that boasts sound absorption, with Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) values of up to 0.9. Decoustics Clean-Air Claro panels are pre-curved and custom-engineered to attain a range of shapes and sizes while achieving a 94 percent light reflectance value. The panels can also be matched to any paint chip to meet specific design requirements.
The panel is manufactured using a high percentage of recycled content with no-added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) components. Given this material composition, the panel releases virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), providing LEED accreditation points and meeting Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) 4.1 standards.
Decoustics Clean-Air Claro also achieves Class A, the lowest flame spread rating for composite test, and when installed onto the Decoustics proprietary Ceilencio suspension system it attains seismic approval for areas with high earthquake activity.
Decoustics Clean-Air Claro is customized and engineered for a precise fit and delivered on-site ready for installation. Panels can be integrated into the Decoustics suspension and mounting systems, including the Decoustics 100 percent downwardly accessible Ceilencio system.
