The Globe and Mail Center located downtown Toronto is great example to demonstrate how our wide range of acoustical products integrate together to fulfill various design and performance objectives. The entire ceiling of the expansive event hall on the 17th floor of the building is outfitted with Decoustics’ Claro and Solo-M wood panels finished in American white oak. Both products have excellent sound absorption properties and ensure pleasant acoustics inside the room when the events reach full capacity.

Claro Standard White finish has additional benefits as it reflects over 90% of light. At daytime the space is filled with natural sunlight and at night the atmosphere and mood changes as the different colored lights, patterns and images that are projected onto the ceiling.

Claro and Solo Type 8 panels are suspended on fully accessible Ceilencio suspension system, which allows for easy access to the plenum for maintenance and repairs. Edges are finished with knife-edge trim. In addition, Ceilencio accommodates various light fixtures and panels lifts, which expand in and out of the ceiling.

Decoustics’ Dowel Grille products give a different look and feel to the hallway, reception area and office spaces throughout the building. To add depth and hide the suspension, the Dowel Grille is finished with upturn grille blades.

We have the capability and custom product range to accommodate virtually any design intent, which makes specifying and installation process easy and efficient.

The expansive renovation of the Minnesota Orchestra Hall’s event space and corridors included custom Solo acoustical wood ceilings and walls that spanned a total of 10,589 square feet. KPMB Architects from Toronto, Ontario, specified the products to be installed into the iconic orchestra hall. The outcome of the Minnesota Orchestra’s event space and corridors is spectacular, the high-level of detail and precision that was present throughout the design, manufacturing and installation stages resulted in a remarkable space that can be experienced from the inside and seen from the outside.
