New Commercial Ceiling System From CertainTeed Offers Acoustics And Aesthetics

Malvern, PA – When specifying large-format metal ceiling panels for expansive commercial installations, designers are often forced to choose between acoustics and aesthetics. In order to achieve a monolithic look, acoustics and ease of installation have traditionally been sacrificed. When acoustics or installation speed become the primary focus, aesthetics have taken a back seat to convenience. CertainTeed aims to change all that with the launch of PLAZA™ Large-Format Acoustic Panels by Hunter Douglas Ceiling & Wall Products, exclusively from CertainTeed.

PLAZA combines lightweight strength, a monolithic look and speed of installation. The large-format metal panels feature lightweight perforated aluminum construction and a honeycomb core, helping them stay ultra-flat over time. A variety of sizes up to 4’x10’ simplifies installation while micro perforation achieves best-in-class acoustic performance (NRC 0.80).

“Installers are always looking for products that make their jobs more efficient, while providing design stakeholders with visually appealing options,” explained Steven Udolph, national sales manager, Hunter Douglas Ceiling & Wall Products. “PLAZA delivers the metal look designers want, and is easy and efficient for contractors to install.”

Much of the installation efficiency of PLAZA can be attributed to CertainTeed’s drywall grid and torsion spring suspension system, which offers heavy duty load-bearing capabilities. More information about PLAZA is available at  www.certainteed.com/plaza. To request a sample or discuss how the large-format acoustic panels can be incorporated into upcoming projects, contact a local Hunter Douglas Ceiling & Wall Products representative or call customer service at 1-800-233-8990. Hunter Douglas Ceiling & Wall Products is a wholly owned subsidiary of CertainTeed.
