Dynamic ceiling installation inside this fitness room delivers an avant-garde feel to this otherwise familiar space. Custom steel frame suspension was used to hold the unique shape of the ceiling and tailored Clean-Air Claro® panels were direct mounted to create a 3D-wave effect and add depth to the ceiling. Clean-Air Claro is a high-performance acoustical material that absorbs noises and eliminates echoing to create a pleasant workout atmosphere. It is also Greenguard Gold certified and is constructed from No-Added Formaldehyde materials releasing virtually no VOCs and creating a healthy breathing environment.
