Acoustics
Sound Absorption (NRC)

A measure for rating the overall sound absorption of a material when used in an enclosed architectural space where sound is reflected at many angles of incidence. A ceiling system with an NRC < 0.50 is low performance, an NRC > 0.70 is high performance.

Up to 0.80
Sound Blocking (CAC)

A measure for rating the performance of a ceiling system as a barrier to airborne sound transmission through a common plenum between adjacent closed spaces. A ceiling system with a CAC < 25 is considered low performance, whereas one with CAC of 35 or higher is high performance.

Articulation Class (AC)

Product has AC (Articulation Class) 170 or greater.

Light
Light Reflectance

A high light reflective ceiling – LR 0.83 or greater, per ASTM E1477-98 as referred to in ASTM E1264-98 – makes lighting systems, especially indirect lighting, more effective while further reducing energy costs and consumption. LR values apply to White panels only.

Anti-Microbial
Mold/Mildew Resistance

Ceiling panels with BIOBLOCK performance resist the growth of mold and mildew on the panel surface.
Ceiling panels with BIOBLOCK Plus performance resist the growth of odor and stain-producing bacteria as well as mold and mildew on the ceiling panel surface.

BIOBLOCK
Humidity
Sag/Humidity Resistance

Ceiling panels maintain humidity and sag resistance.

HUMIGUARD Plus
Durability
