Highly customizable and cost-effective acoustical solution for partial ceiling coverage.

Baffles are great way to add an acoustic treatment to the room while only partially covering the ceiling. Since Baffles are suspended vertically and the surface area exposed for sound absorption is doubled and higher NRC levels can be achieved. Decoustics custom engineers Fabric, Claro and Wood finished baffles to a wide range of unique shapes and colors with the option of wire suspension or direct mounting them to a T-bar grid.

Decoustics acoustical fabric Baffles consist of two 1″ (25mm) thick cores assembled to produce an overall 2″ (50mm) thick baffle which is then upholstered. An optional foil-type septum between the two panels is available to aid in containing sound within an area. Fabric Baffles are available in three types: Type 10, Type 20 and Type 30, which is also referred to as a Free Hanging Screen. The difference between the baffles is the bottom edge detail and the baffle shape.

Decoustics Claro and Wood Baffles are customizable to a wide range of unique shapes and various thicknesses with the option of cutting shapes out of the material for visual impact.

  • Extensive Customization Capabilities
  • 94% Light Reflectance with Claro CSW-100 (white finish)
  • 77% Light Reflectance with Fabric DWF-200 (white fabric)
  • Double the sound absorption surface
  • Highest Class A Fire Rating on Finished Composite

 

 

Type 10

Fabric-wrapped Baffle with seamless bottom edge, square edges around the panel perimeter and square corners.

 

 

 

Type 20

Fabric-wrapped Baffle with seamless bullnose bottom and vertical edges, square top edge, and radiused bottom edge corners.

 

 

Type 30 (a.k.a. Free Hanging Screen)

Claro Baffles

Acoustically transparent stipple-textured Claro finish. Various customization capabilities: colors, unique shapes, cutouts, thicknesses and sizes, with the option to suspend by wires or direct mount to the ceiling.

 

 

Wood Baffles

Acoustically perforated wood products installed to partially cover the ceiling. As natural wood products tend to weight significantly heavier than Fabric or Claro products, limited suspension options are available with this finish. Please inquire for more information.

Fabric Baffles

 

Claro Baffles

*Sound absorption is calculated in Sabins per unit. NRC levels will vary based on square footage, spacing and shape of the baffles. NRC levels of up to 0.75 can be reached, please consult an acoustical consultant or Decoustics.

Wood Baffles

Please inquire for acoustical information.

Suspension and Mounting Systems

Typically used to suspend baffles and free hanging screens. D-Rings are installed into a “J Metal” top edge and can be field relocated to the necessary distances for optimal baffle support. D-Ring hardware is supplied by Decoustics and other suspension components such as chains and wires are supplied by installing contractor.
