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.

LightFrame acoustical panels provide even illumination and great acoustical performance inside the hand-off area of the Audi dealership in midtown Toronto, ON. LightFrame is constructed with translucent, acoustically perforated fabric that diffuses light delivering uniform illumination and presenting the vehicles in their “best light” to their new owners. Additionally, the perforations ensure that noises inside the room are absorbed by the panels which eliminates echoing and makes for a pleasant hand-off experience.


KPU Civic Plaza, also referred to as 3 Civic Tower, is a multi-purpose 52-storey building in downtown Surrey, BC that consists of luxury residences, hotel suites, retail units and Kwanten Polytechnic University (KPU) 5th campus. Adding depth to the university hallways’ ceiling are Decoustics 1″ and 2″ rectangular-shaped Claro Baffles suspended by D-Rings and Keepers on wires. The baffles are installed with uniform spacing and vary in length to create circular geometrical shapes. In addition to adding dimension and a decorative touch, the Claro Baffles effectively absorb noise and improve acoustics throughout these high traffic public areas.


Floating Clean-Air Claro acoustical clouds and swish-cloud elements create a dramatic ceiling effect inside a waiting area at the Vancouver International Airport. The clouds vary in diameter from 31″ to 59″, they have seamless design returns for thickness and are suspended at different heights to add depth to the ceiling.

Clean-Air Claro Clouds attain high Noise Reduction levels and are manufactured utilizing No-Added Urea Formaldehyde components, attaining Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certifications from UL Environment. Importantly, Clean-Air Claro products contain virtually no Volatile Organic Compounds and are proven to enhance indoor air quality and deliver better, healthier public environments.

 


Beautifully complementing the aesthetics of this unique open-concept office space, Claro ceiling panels finished in CSW-100 white coating deliver high light reflectance and excellent acoustical performance.


Claro ceiling at grand atrium entrance to Ford Hall inside Rogers Place

From a crushing cross check into the boards to an electrifying guitar solo, sports fans and concert-goers alike are reveling in the newly built Rogers Place in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. Inside the facility, Decoustics® Claro® Ceilencio® ceiling system is the highlight of the Ford Hall grand atrium entrance.

Solo Planks installed in a sawtooth pattern inside Sheridan College Classroom

To add warmth and a dynamic finishing effect to an otherwise standard classroom set-up, Solo planks were installed in a sawtooth pattern throughout Sheridan College’s classrooms and lecture halls. Solo planks are finished in custom stained white oak wood veneer and uniquely perforated and grooved for high acoustical performance. Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of approx. 0.9 ensures that lingering noises are absorbed and greatly reduced, delivering crisp sounds of the lecture to the students’ ears.


Showroom with backlit translucent fabric ceiling

Featured vehicles at over 60 Nissan dealerships are shown in their best light with the LED backlit LightFrame® ceiling panels that are integrated into a metal structure. This structure is not only an attractive focal point, but it is also functional as the custom-engineered LightFrame® panels evenly illuminate the featured vehicle and absorb noise to deliver speech intelligibility and comfortable shopping experience to Nissan’s clients.


Wooden Solo Plank ceiling highlight inside Calgary International Airport

The newly opened International Terminal of the Calgary Airport spans over 2,000,000 sf, features 24 gates and cost an estimated CAD $1.47 Billion (approx. USD $1.12 Billion).
