Application: Airport


Claro Ceilencio custom acoustical panels with built-up returns are seen throughout the newly renovated Terminal 3 of the Pearson International Airport in Toronto, ON. The 4″ and 3″ curved built-up returns visually add depth to the ceiling and conceal the suspension. The panels brighten up the space by reflecting light, have high noise absorption properties and eliminate echoing delivering a pleasant and stress-free environment inside the airport. In addition, both products attain Class A fire rating, making them a safe and reliable choice for all applications.

The new Muscat International Airport, a “focal point for the world”, has just opened its doors.

McCarran International Airport is located about 5 miles (8km) south of Downtown Las Vegas, NV and serves over 50 million annual passengers. It spans over 2800 acres (11.3 sq km) of land and offers numerous choices for shopping, dining and entertainment including slot machines. Decoustics Claro Ceilencio is installed throughout the airport’s arrival and departure halls, customs, baggage areas, dining and hallways. Large stipple textured Claro panels deliver exceptional acoustical performance in this busy airport and brighten up the space by reflecting natural sunlight coming from the windows. Some areas feature extra large sloping panels, others are finished with design returns to create depth and conceal light fixtures. The entire ceiling plenum throughout the airport is 100% downward accessible with Ceilencio suspension grid. All panels can swing down using torsion springs and allow access for easy maintenance and repairs. The photos above were taken over 10 years post installation and the ceiling to this day is as functional and clean looking as it was in 2009 when the panels were originally installed.
