Library Ceiling

​Create Focused Environments

Ssh! Libraries are well-known quiet spaces that provide respite, peace, and quiet.


The ultimate in quiet, libraries are where people go to get things done. The ceiling needs to have superior acoustical control, but also help create an environment where people can read, work, and research comfortably.

Check out a library ceiling with TOTAL ACOUSTICS performance that absorbs and blocks noise. But sound performance isn't the whole story. Choose from a variety of materials, shapes, colors, and forms to provide the design flexibility to make your next library one that's quietly stunning.
